    it's evil, I swear. I plug it in, and the only files it recognizes are my recorded audio files, not my music. it doesn't list what's actually on the player, but acknowledges that it is 4.5 GBs full. WHAT???

Open up your windows media player and click on the sync tab..your device should be listed there..and also it will show you all the songs you have in there...or you can just format the whole player..formatting will erase everything in that player...

    You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
    Either under sync pane in windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
    Hope this helps
    If you still not able to delete it let me know so I can have you try something else...

Its hidden so you have to go to the control panel and search folders and make it show hidden folders and files.

I couldn't for the life of me figure out where the player was storing its files so I could find them in Windows Explorer. Turns out the "Music" folder is hidden, and you have to tell Windows to display hidden files and folders (in your Windows Folder Options, usually found in your Control Panel).

Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete"

I cannot delete songs from my Sansa e280. I have tried using both USB settings - MSC and MTP. When I try using "My Computer" it says it is deleting the files but they are still on the...


They are probably corrupt files. You will never be able to delete these unless you format your device, which unfortunately will delete all of your songs.

To format: Connect it to you computer, go to my computer, right click on Sansa and click on format. Once the format process has started don't interupt it. You will have to re-load all of your songs back on to the player, but at least your corrupt files will be deleted.

Part II - Windows Media Player by Tha Mp3 Doctor

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

This player supports two different USB modes. If the songs were added with the other method, you need to use that other method to delete the songs. Read up on it. Common headache, easy solution.

When i connect to the computer, i can add songs, but the songs on it dont show up


I don't know if you've inadvertently deleted the music folder, but that's what I did, when I deleted all the folders by mistake, thank heavens for in-store warrenty, they replaced it with another one. What I noticed on my replacement is synchronizing with media player doesn't work, it creates ghost folders and thinks music is there when it isn't, I don't understand it. Solution: open two windows for my music and sansa e280 music, then just drag and drop the folders; what I noticed is that in my music the folders are named by artist, and I prefer to see them by album, but when I view them in the player, I see the albums with the tracks in the right order.
