Ok, plug it in your computer, open "My Computer," open up your Sansa, open up the file named "Music," select all the files, right click them and click delete. Now go to the Recycling Bin and delete all the music files that were on your Sansa. Sometimes the Sansa doesn't realize that files are gone until you delete them from the Recycling Bin, crazy I know, but it's true.
Hope it helps!
I don't know if this will help delete what you don't want but plug the sandisk into your computer and open to view the contents. when you see the list of folders, at the top click on
make sure "show hidden files and folders" is checked. click ok.
then if you can see the folder you want to delete, highlight it and press the delete key on your keyboard. (if you want to save it, copy it to your hard drive instead).
to put on a cd this may be a roundabout way but is fairly simple.
put the cd in the computer, using windows media player rip it and save songs in a folder on the hard drive. save as mp3 (or wma should work, too.) you can read on the net how to do this. once the songs are in the folder, close media play. go to the folder and the hard drive and copy it to the sandisk . you can see on your computer if it is there. unplug from the computer and hopefully you can find it and play the songs.
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.
To delete files using the MSC mode, please follow these steps:
1. Open "My Computer" and Open the "Removable Disk" that pertains to the player. 2. Open the folder where you copied the songs, if applicable, and locate the songs that you want to delete. 3. Highlight the songs, press the "Delete" key and click "OK".
Using the MSC mode, you may also delete every file that you have put in the Sansa by formatting it. To format your Sansa, please follow these steps:
1. Open "My Computer" and right click on the "Removable Drive" that pertains to your Sansa. 2. On the drop down list that appears, choose "Format". 3. On the "File System" drop down list, select "FAT" if your Sansa is less than 2GB. Otherwise, select FAT32. 4. Click "Start".
Plug it into the computer (the cord you would use to charge it and transfer files), and hold down the power button for at least 15 seconds. The Sansa should then begin to turn on and start charging. :)
I had a e260 and i thought i might share this with you. They got recalled, because ofa software malfunction. That might be what is wrong with yours, even though it's a different one it seemed to me like they were still getting the bugs out beause i upgraded to the e280 and i have to take it back too for software problems...
