    hello , thanks for responding, I'm not sure about the format command, and what OS is, I bought this device refurbished, from a store called Factory Direct in Toronto, so I didn't get any cds or anything with it, I'm learning as I go ,

    I was told to download software (I think its called) from the internet, if that has anythign to do with this problem.



    By format do you mean MSC or MTP in the USB mode options?

Question for you:
1. The software that you use for adding songs to the device does it have a format command.
2. What OS are you using?
Thanks,

    You will have to download the software from the manufactures web site and in that software there will be a command to format the mp3 player. This should fix your problem. Sounds to me like the memory has gotten messed up and by formating that should take care of it.

    Thanks,

I don't have a solution -- but I have the same problem and this is the first I've found mention of someone else having it. I'm Mac OS 10.6.5. I thought I could go through and just delete the second copies of everything, but I can't figure out how to do that either. They don't show up when it's plugged into the computer. And as far as I can tell, you have to be playing a song in order to delete it, and it can't play things in the wrong format. Beating my head against the wall and starting to look at buying something else... In case you found a solution elsewhere, please let me know!

Wenever i upload songs its stored in gallery.. i want songs to hear in music player.. how to do that???


The songs may be stored anywhere, but they are displayed in gallery. To hear them one by one you just go to gallery->music/tracks/songs-> andselect the song. It will be automatically be played by music player. Then there is a PlayList. In this you put your favourite songs in a particular order and just start it and songs will be played one after the other. To make a PlayList you must open the Tracks folder and then select songs and from options go to Add To PlayList.

Deleting songs.


Your DB might be corrupt. Folow the delete procedure one more time:
Delete Music Files
1) Connect your Sansa to the computer.
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
connection.
3) Select the place where you want to delete music files from
4) Highlight and delete the music file/s or folder from My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\MUSIC
folder. (You can also select from a variety of music
software programs to transfer/synchronize your files).

If that fails, go ahead and update the firmware - it will delete everything, and allow you to start over from scratch among other things.

Bad tracks won't delete


Have you tried updating the firmware. Even if it is the lastest edition, download the firmware manually and run the software. Then format in Windows Media player. Best Regards Keith
