Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the SanDisk website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

Hold the power button down for 15 seconds.
At the top of your machine, slide the LOCK / HOLD switch to the right, towards the headphone jack, and you will see an orange bar,
Hold the REC button down, and while KEEPING this button pressed, plug into your PC. Keep it held for a few moments, until the device is recognized by the PC.
The display of the Sansa will say "welcome to recovery mode".
On your PC, open up the Windows Explorer window by going to My Computer,
See the new icon, 16MB FORMAT? Double click on that. Now, right click on the open window, and open a new folder. RENAME the folder sansa.fmt and drag this folder into the 16MB FORMAT partition.
DO NOT TRY TO FORMAT THIS PARTITION WITH THE PC!! Just place the sansa.fmt folder in there.
Right click one last time on the partition and select Eject.
Voila! Unplug your V1 Sansa, and it will format all by itself.
Now, your Sansa is formatted and ready to go. Plug her in to the PC and see that it is recognized once again as a Sansa by the PC.
You're ready to reload your music...

Bad track error. songs arent deleting after reformatting and resetting multiple amounts of times.


There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

I have had this problem for some time now and finally got through to tech support for Sansa and now have the solution:Worked for both 230 and 240.
Take out the battery in the Sansa player; Put on lock on back side of Sansa player; Connect Sansa to the computer, Once computer recognizes device cancel out of that media program; Go to my computer on desk top; Right click on recognized Sansa device; Click format; Click ok to delete files.

I accidentaly sinc music to my sansa e250 from windows media player and it wont come off!!!


Mp3 files can be loaded using either WMP or Windows file manager (Explorer) but a different USB setting is required by each. WMP uses the MTP setting while Explorer uses MSC. If you used the wrong setting this may have caused your problem. Also for some reason MP3 files loaded using a file manager will not appear when trying to view them using WMP. To solve the issue I used the MSC setting to view all of my MP3's using file manager. I then deleted the ones I had recently added, changed the setting back to MTP and reloaded them using WMP. Worked like a charm. Hope that helps.

Battery


I'm having the same problem! I've had my Sansa e130 for exactly one year today. I loaded new music on it last night and when I tried to turn it on, it said "searching internal memory for new music." I left it on and this morning it wouldn't come back on with new batteries or even when hooked to a computer! I sent an e-mail to the company for help since there is no reset button. I haven't heard anything yet. I suggest you contact SanDisk too. They may have a problem. And I can't believe someone actually suggested as a solution to put a new battery in it or hook it up! No duh! We're looking for real help here, not the obvious things to try.
