This sounds like you've got one of three things happening:

1 - Your USB cable is dying slowly. Over time connections become seperated within the cable. This causes data loss and all sorts of funny errors. Try a different cable and see if that helps.

2 - Your USB plug is malfunctioning or underpowered. If you are attempting to use a USB 2.0 device on a 1.1 connection, errors may prevent you from doing what you want to do. Try a different USB port, see if that helps.

3 - Your MP3 player has a setting somewhere locking files to the device itself. If windows tries to delete a locked file, you will receive an error. Browse through the manual of your device or the settings on the device itself and see if there's a lock or protection or USB mode somewhere.

Because you're getting the "cannot read from source or disk" error, I am strongly geared towards #1. Get yourself a new cable and see if that doesn't solve the problem.

I'm trying to figure out if I can delete ALL songs without having to delete them one by one and my Sansa Fuze is 4GB not 2GB.

You can hook your player to your computer and go to explorer window find your player - open the file tree, find the music folder and open that folder, click on the file at the top and press the shift key then click on the bottom file, this selects all files in that folder and then right click and chose delete. If you have a lot of files it may take a while to delete them, if you get a error msg- try this tip posted here......... Solve your MP3 Player Connection Problem.

2) Then, Close all open programs.
3) Click Start, Run and enter TASKMGR.EXE
4) Go to the Processes tab and End Process on Explorer.exe.
5) Leave Task Manager open.
6) Go back to the Command Prompt window and change to the directory the AVI (or other undeletable file) is located in.
7) At the command prompt type DEL where is the file you wish to delete.

What happens when you try to delete a music file?

You can delete music files by right clicking on the file on the MP3 player using WMP then select delete.

How do you create a playlist?

Solution 1 In the Sansa drive in Windows Explorer select the songs that you want in the playlist. Right click and create playlist. You can do minimal playlist editing through the playlist file properties. Drag files to the references tab to add files.
There is a free playlist creator which creates playlists for each folder on the sansa player with one click. it is written in .NET and does not alter the music files (
There is also one written in Python that should work on both linux and Windows (

Solution 2 Try Musicmatch Jukebox or MediaMonkey. Both of those should be able to create a music library using only files from the device. Then sort them by artist and album, and delete them from the library, deleting the files as well. Transfer new files to the device as files (MSC USB mode on the player), not by syncing. You can create a new music library on the fly if you've made extensive changes. It doesn't take much time. Playlists should not contain drive letters or folder names, so edit them in Notepad, unless you have an app that makes them on the fly (suggestions?).
You can keep your main database in MediaMonkey, and open the Sansa device (see the plus and click on it). You'll be able to delete files from there. But if you double click on a song on the Sansa device, the wrong song will play. Dunno why, but that's what happens on my computer. But deleting files works.

Solution 3 Rename all your tracks so artist (look for batch renaming feature in your software. Add example of freeware editor?), album and song name is in the file name. That won't be visible in the player, but can aid administration if you use the player in MSC mode.

Solution 4 A how-to for using Windows Media Player and syncing to make playlists can be found here.
added by thatsRich 04-08-06 - I was having trouble sorting on my Sansa m250 using drag and drop with basic file management for mp3s. After seeing this article, I tried Windows Media Player (version 10) and found that perfect for the job. Since you can drag mis-sorted files in the left pane, they "sync" in proper order.

Not letting me add songs

Very cool

ok so i called 1-866-sandisk and she told me how to fix it. you just flip the key lock at the top so you see orange, then hold down the record button. then you should get some sort of message on the screen. then you plug it in and under my computer a file should show up. you open it and make a folder in it called sansa.fwm (i think thats the right folder name, if not, try sansa.tmp or email me). then you unplug it and it should say formatting or something like that. once its done it should work.

I pod wont sync /missing file

I think you may have some how deleted you itunes library file. It's default location is:
C:\Documents and Settings\<user>\My Documents\My Music\iTunes\iTunes Library.itl
the file is called "iTunes Library.itl"
You can delete the whole itunes file but all of you music may be deleted.
Good luck and i hope this somehow helps.
