Hi i hoked my sansa mp3 player in to the usb and then i took it out and didnt turn on what do i do

You are suppose you use the safely remove hardware option,
you just don't unplug a usb devise without telling windows
to release it.

Remove the battery, then put it back in, restart windows and plug it in,
wait till it see;s it, then in the bottom rt corner of windows in your
taskbar is a little pic of a usb plug, mouse over it and click it, a window will pop up that say stop devise. Make sure you know what letter is listed
under my computer for it, it might be E,or F.

Delete songs

If you have a Sansa Fuze you can play the song you want to delete and then click on the bottom of the disk and a menu will come up to delete songs If you have a 1 gig Sansa you must connect the player to the computer with an USB cable and the right click on the mouse when the Windows Media Player comes up. It will then show you everything on you MP3 player and you can delete the song on the menu on the computer screen

I have an sansa sandisk 2 gig model m250. How do I delete contents that I loaded?

Plug it into your computer via the usb cord and bring up the players contents on My Computer>Player and delete the contents within the folders you want, most likely the Music Folder.

Delete music

when you plug it to usb cord and the computer then you can "reformat" that is the only way to remove need a computer, don't use Vista it is not compatible with anything yet...
use windows xp and when you plug in your mp3 player m250 it will ask you which program to choose from to open your files on the mp3 disk...its easy...

Sansa clip 2 gig computer doesnt find

This is the method that will force Windows to recognize the Sansa: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Why wont my Sansa get songs???

You may have to install Musicmatch and add songs through the portable device menu. It worked for me. Good luck.
