    I bought my Sansa 2 weeks ago everything was running okay then started displaying bad track. Now system won't play at all and completely freezes with bad track on screen. Can't shut off or do anything. Battery needs to drain to shut off screen. Help..I'm thinking I should have bought an IPod.

    ok, so whenever you format, is everything(including folders, etc.) supposed to disappear?

    I just downloaded about a hundered songs and everyone of them says bad track. Just before uploading these songs onto my e280 I updated the firmware, but this bad track thing has happened before.

    i've had my sansa e280 for about three months, and its been working fine until now. i decided to delete all of my songs and start again. i disconnected the sansa and it froze.i did the reset and it turned on but i checked my playlist and the songs were there but they were all bad tracks. i have tried deleting them but it just comes up with a box saying the device isnt working or has been disconnected. i still cant get rid of them and now when i try and put songs on it just disconnects its self. what can i do?

    I have a few bad tracks on my player....some of the songs will play half way and all of a sudden all you hear is a loud screech...and it is thre same for all the songs that are bad.

    I connected my player back and deleted the songs from the player which were bad ...Essendtially your songs are hidden, go to windows explorer and in Tools, go to "folder options" and set the view as "show hidden files and folders" and then delete the bad ones. Once you disconnect the system will restart and things should be better

Format the player in MSC/Rhapsody mode. Then restransfer the songs back to the player.This is usuall cause by a bad file in the player, If you are unable to get to the menus of the player. Perform recovery mode on the player and create a sansa.fmt on the player then let if format the device.

    @ jjislander : the same procedure goes with your problem. Try changing the mdoe fo the player to MSC/Rhapsody then connect the player to the computer. When the palyer is recognize perform format on it and choose FAT32. To shutoff the player when it is frozen press and hold the menu button of the player until the device shuts off

When i put some songs on my Sansa e280 mp3 player they were bad tracks and when i deleted them they were still there.


If u got them from a scratched cd or from a corupeted source they could be harder to get off. Maybe u could format everything to solve it.

Mp3 player restarts whenever i skip a song


try using recovery mode with the sansa.fmt file and update the firmware. this will erase all your music from the device so you will have to reload all your songs but it will probably fix the issue.

Deleting 'Bad Track'


I should have Googled this before posting. I'm not sure if I found the solution here or elsewhere but...
I deleted the /system/database folder and after it restarted and rebuilt the database the 'Bad Track' was gone. I was able to load the player with MP3s and it has worked flawlessly since.

Bad track


That means that somewhere in your music collection is a song with bad formatted ID3 tags. You can download an ID3 tag tool like MusicBrainz Picard to go through your songs and determine which tracks might be bad.

Why are there "Bad Tracks?"


For the bad tracks go Under Settings, look for Mode or USB Mode. Put the unit in MSC (if that's available) or Rhapsody.

Connect it to the computer. See what driveletter it is :F: Sansa E280...G: Sansa E280... whatever it is.

Click Start/Run and type in chkdsk F:/f (or G: or whatever the letter is) . That will check and may fix the bad files.

I hope that helps

Sansa bad track


You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media1.gif, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync pane in windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
Hope this helps
If you still not able to delete it let me know so I can have you try something else...
P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You
