It sounds like you need to update the device firmware...first you will need to format the device using windows media player..once you format it go to the sandisk site to get the latest firmware for your device..that should resolve your problems...

Can not down load voice recording to computer: Sansa 280.

You can try few simple steps like changing the USB ports, turning off & turning on the mp3 player and then reconnecting it, and then changing the USB mode on device: Menu --> Settings --> USB mode: MSC or MTP
If these don't work, try the steps here: Sansa e250 Not Detected in PC

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

MP3 songs are not getting download in sansa e250

you are using the sansa media converter which would only allow the user to transfer pictures and videos to the player. You would be using windows media player 10 or 11 to transfer songs to the player.

SansaE250 Startup and intial setup problems

download the latest firmware from 7/?/2002
I had this problem too and tried all kinds suggested solutions. The main problem was that no computer would recognize the e250 in MTP mode--which is what you need to transfer songs with DRMs from Rhapsody or similar services. The latest firmware fixed the problem.
I gave up on the whole thing about about a year ago. What a waste of precious time that could have been spent in nerdy musical bliss.
