If you originally used rhapsody (or began in Rhapsody mode) , you have to use rhapsody to remove the songs. If that doesn't work, you can manually open the music folder by enabling "hidden folders" under "tools" -> "folder options..." -> click the "view" tab -> scroll and check "show hidden files and folders". Then go to My Computer -> Sansa e250 -> "system" -> "music" -> then delete the songs. I don't know the effects of using this method, so use it at your own risk.
Btw, Real Player should do fine as well.

SOURCE: Sansa e250R firmware
i had same problem, sansa made it worse
i found some good firmware on this website
it is normal e250 firmware but it works
if you want rhapsody on it this is not for you
your player will act like a normal e250 not a rhapsody e250
i will post the link when i remember it
after downloading it i put it on.
NOTE you must get the firmware updater of of sansa because the firmware is older
this firmware will allow your system to boot up correctly but it is required you download the firmware updater from sandisk.com and it will be an updated working fine e250r--
BUT BEFORE YOU DO THIS, REMEMBER THIS WILL MAKE THE PLAYER EXACTLY LIKE A BASIC E250 AND NOT LIKE A RHAPSODY E250. THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT AFTER YOU DO THIS, YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HAVE SUBSCRIPTION MUSIC LIKE RHAPSODY OR WINDOWS PLAYS FOR SURE--BUT THOSE ARE LAME ANYWAY.
I WILL POST THE LINK LATER.

Get software from Sandisk's website
These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.
Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
If these fail, then:
Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
