Question about SanDisk Sansa e200 MP3 Player
The Rhapsody edition comes with the Real Player, which I despise, due to the constant error messages it puts on my computer. I am unable to delete files manually on my computer, because when I go to control panel, it adds it as another drive - F:/ e250 - all it gives me are voice, fm, tmp, photo and video folders. THERE IS NO MUSIC FOLDER ANYWHERE! This worked while at my dad's and grandma's computer - I am scratching my head, wondering where the MUSIC folder is, and why it shows up on other computers, but not mine. I also cannot import any music from the player to my computer, as the MUSIC folder does not show up when I expand the F:/e250 folder. How can I import the files to my computer, and delete some files off of my player?
I have had this problem for some time now and finally got through to tech support for Sansa and now have the solution:Worked for both 230 and 240.
Take out the battery in the Sansa player; Put on lock on back side of Sansa player; Connect Sansa to the computer, Once computer recognizes device cancel out of that media program; Go to my computer on desk top; Right click on recognized Sansa device; Click format; Click ok to delete files.

I can't delete my music on the Sansa. But I don't want to delete all the songs. The cd is installed & the player works well but I need to change the music.

I was just pulling my hair out with the same problem - I got frustrated. I copied the visible contents of the Sansa to my computer and then I just reformatted the Sansa. I recreated empty folders on the Sansa, just in case they were needed, but I don't think they are. I think the unit can create folders. Anyway, I got rid of the invisible file problem and the Sansa is taking and using new files just fine.

Odds are windows decided to hide these files to protect you from deleting something important. Try right clicking the drive icon go to properties and select show hidden files. Or if that doesn't work go into the file manager and select show hidden files. I can't remember exactly where its at but I have done it before.
