Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player
The simple answer is to edit the genre data of your hard rock songs from "Hard Rock" to "HardRock" (remove the space). This sounds stupid but it causes the e280 to freeze during the refresh database phase after writing songs to the device.
I've also noticed that some genres are renamed from what they actually are. Soul, for example, shows up as Punk in the genre list of the e280. Southern Rock displays as Comedy. Mine has version 3.01.11 firmware. I renamed "Soul" to "Soul-" to get rid of the Punk tag, and "Southern Rock" to "SouthernRock" to get rid of the Comedy tag. "Ballad" shows up as "unknown" so I change it to "SoftRock" to solve that issue.
I haven't tried other genres so if you don't have any hard rock songs on your player, try renaming the genres tags to something else to see if it solves your problem.
