Weird Files?? Hi, when i plug up my Sansa to the computer, it's fine in the music section. But when I go to my computer and click on my sansa icon, in the video folder, it shows all these weird files that have the weird symbols and i can't delete the files off. it even shows up that i had a file up from 1980! it's taking up space and it won't allow me to play in videos. i have tried deleteing them and it says "can't delete source" or something. i have also tried cutting them and then deleting. if anyone knows anything or has this problem, please help me!! i really want my videos back and want to watch them. thanks!!

I would recommend you to format the device using Windows media player..just go to the sync tab..your device is going to be listed on the left side of your screen.then right click on the device name and format it..keep in mind formatting will erase all data in the device...

  • Optionally, you can left-click on a file and drag the file icon to the Recycle Bin. Either way, you can delete music that you don’t want from your Sansa MP3 player.
  • Unlike other documents and files, once the music file hits the Recycle Bin, it’s gone. Make sure that you are deleting the correct file.

Sansa e260 problems : Music files freezes the sansa and restarts it.


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
-----
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Weird music files on my Sansa e250 media player


Reformat your Sansa via My Computer. Right click on your Sansa while in my computer, and then FORMAT. Please understand that this will delete ALL of your files. You will have to resync any pictures or music. I had to do this in MTP, AND MSC mode individually to get rid of those pesky items.
