All the songs it already came with cannot be deleted, when I plug it into my computer it says there is nothing on it, but the twenty preloaded songs are there, and I can't figure out how to delete them ?

When you hace the usb cable connected go to "My Computer or Computer" and you will see it listed as a drive. Click on it and open the folder that has the songs and delete the ones you don't want. DO NOT Format(erase) the entire drive or you will erase the operating system of the Sansa. Thanks for using FixYa
Delete songs and Format (Helps with try to delete BAD TRACKS and folders that will not delete Labeling Unknown Songs: open Windows Media Player and go to library click on artist. The sub folders will be named by the artists and the unknown songs will be in the sub that say's unknown. Click on unknown then right click on the title bar put a check next to artist and album artist. Right click song under artist or album artist or both and type in the name of the artist etc.... This change in your computers Music folders also then sync with your sansa or media player then load songs to it........
you have to have the songs you loaded in the same root folder as those songs in order for the head unit to find them. Connect the player to your computer and open the files to view. Browse your way to the preloaded songs and simply move the others to that same folder. While your there, you may want to delete the preloaded stuff that you dont want.
I had the same problem - VERY frustrating. Just found the answer, and am very happy to share it!
1. In setting/USB mode, select MSC mode.
2. Plug in Coby to USB
3. Open My Computer. Look for the Coby as a REMOVABLE DISK, not the Coby.
Files will be there for Viewing and Deleting! (On XP, at least).
4. Make a backup of MTP.BIN and WMPInfo.xml, which I think is the operating sytem?
I got the clue from here:
Well, turn on you mp3 player, go on setting/USB mode and select MSC mode.
Then plug it on your computer and check in MICIN.DIR folder. You must find them.
It wasn't exactly what I saw, but once I looked, it was all there. Perfect!
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'
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
