Connect the device to the PC and right click on the MP3 icon and go down to format, that should delete all your files or you can do it the following way:
Connect the MP3 player to your PC and once you see the songs files, right click on the song you want to erase and go down to delete. If you want to delete multiple songs, press Ctrl (keep it press) and use the mouse to highlight the files you want to delete, once done release Crtl and click on any file and right click again and go down to delete.

Hiya!

First make sure your player is in the right mode:

On the unit itself, press Menu, then go to Settings, USB, then select "MSC". Hit menu again, and then try hooking it up-- you should get a new drive letter in your computer which you can see my opening "My Computer". Click that drive and you can see all the songs on your player and delete them.

My Sansa MP3 player is empty but it still shows music inside that says "bad track". How do I get rid of it?


well, it depends, if you are wanting to put music on it also, you can press the "sync" button in your music folder. If you want it completely empty, go to "remove" in your music folder on the computer. Hope this helps. :)

Videos list showing empty


You need to use the supplied Sansa Media Converter program to convert videos to a format the Sansa can handle. If you don't have the SMC, you may download it here.

If it is still under warranty, then you should take the mp3 player back to the store, tell them it doesn't work and that you would like to exchange it for another one.

Sansa e250 keeps freezing


If you're checking that its empty in your rhapsody program, you might want to click on My Computer and then click on your Sansa mp3 player and then go into music files and delete everything. If u want to delete everything, including videos and pictures, you can go into your rhapsody account, plug in your mp3 player and right click, scroll down and click on "format" this will hopefully delete everything on your mp3 player...if u don't apply to any of these, well....sorry i don't know how to help.

Empty folder


There may be possible reasons why your Sansa E250 would display an message on the LCD even when you've downloaded files to it: (1) The music file type is not supported by the player. Sansa players support only MP3 and WMA files. To determine what file type your have, right click on the file type and it should display the "properties" dialog box. Check if it is MP3 or WMA. For example, iTunes music files will not work with the player, nor will WAV or MIDI files. (2) Your music files are supported but the bit rate is not within the range that the player supports. Sansa players support MP3 files up to 128 KBPS and WMA files up to 64 KBPS. You may need to use a 3rd party music file editor to convert the files to a supported bit rate (3) You may have saved your music files in a folder and copied the folder to the player. Your Sansa E250 will not recognize folders. Either save them in the root directory or inside the "Music" folder -- your player's default folder for music files. Hope this info helps :)
