Re: deleting songs

I have deleted the songs off of the computer, but they are staying on the MP3 player (Sansa e250) and when I connect it again and open the files up, it says it's not there. Should I reset it and start fresh?

SOURCE: how to delete??

All Right, Hot Pokie, you have to use the synchro function on WMP or Go to My Computer if the former doesn't work. Plug you Sansa In and It will show up as a MTP player ( If you Dont have it showed up set it to MSC in Options) Go to Media then music then browse until you find the song and kill it by right clicking and selecting DELETE. This may mess your songs if you don't do it right and if that happens I am a jibbering idiot. JK. Go to Recovery mode as shown in Fixya. Hammervich Amerikov. See ya and thanks!

Simple. If you want to delete a certain tune do the following: 1. Connect it to the coputer. 2. Click on "My computer" 3. Click on the Sansa icon 4. Browse the folders and delete the files you don't want. If you want to delete the entire disk 1. Connect it to the computer. 2. Click on "My computer" 3. Right Click on the sansa 4. Click on Format. Let me know if it helped. D.

I did not get the "Swtich to Recovery mode" screen, my screen was stuck on "Bad Track." I formatted the drive (which deleted EVERYTHING), and then i put the songs back on, and it works just fine. Try this, it might help.

The MUSIC folder is a "hidden" folder when in MSC mode.
To view it (assuming you're using Windows XP) go to:
My Computer>Tools>Folder Options>View Tab.
Scroll down till you see Hidden Files and Folders
and click on Show Hidden Files and Folders, and then OK.
You should then be able to see all the folders on your Sansa. The "hidden" folders will appear slghtly lighter in color. This is where you can delete click on folder then go toleft of screen to "delete this folder" (or open folder and click individual song" then go to left of screen

log on as an administrator on your comuter and plug the mp3 player into a USB slot and then goto my computer and it will be a removable disk and double click on it and you should see songs when you double click on removable disk and if there is any folders double click on them when you want to delete it left click on it once there should be a delete button click that and it will delete

I don't have a sony mp3 player but this is a standard procedure for looking at anything in a USB port

How can I delete a song in my Sansa e250?

I also have an e250. You have probably figured it out by now, but if you have not, it is an easy fix.
While the song you want deleted is playing, just press the menu button at the bottom of the ring. The menu will come up, then scroll down to the bottom and therewill be the option to "Delete This Song". Press Delete and you will be prompted to select YES or NO. Choose yes and song will be deleted. The next song on the list will be qued but will be in PAUSED mode. You can also hook up to your computer and delete songs from the song menu page. Hope this helped.

Deleting Songs Using Windows Media Player
Use Windows Media Player to view the songs that are stored on your mp3 player - best to view them in the "Sync" tab. Find the song that you want to delete, right-click the song, and select Delete (or left-click and press Delete on your keyboard). Voila!

Cannot delete the songs on mp3

I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'

1)Plug in
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else

My sansa e250

If you want to delete EVERY track off the player, then reformat the player in Windows Media Player - it's a shortcut - see my "tips and tricks" on formatting mp3 players

If there are artist, album traces, then you need to click on every subfolder under your device in Windows Media Player and delete every trace that way - tedious, but effective

-Tha Mp3 Doctor
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
