Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
Next time you need to delete files heres how. --
There are two ways to delete files on your Sansa player. You can delete them from the player directly or using a PC.
METHOD 1 - Delete files directly on the device 1. In playback mode, press the Submenu button. 2. Select Delete.
METHOD 2 - Delete files using a PC For all other Sansa players: 1. Connect your device to the PC. 2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial connection. 3. Locate the folder where your files are stored. 4. Click to select the files you want deleted and delete the files.
NOTE: If songs still exist after deleting, you may need to switch USB modes from MTP to MSC or vice versa. See this tip HERE
Capacity issue This error occurs when a Sansa player is almost filled to capacity. A Sansa player can NOT be filled to full capacity. (i.e. you can't put 2GB worth of songs into a 2GB player)
The player needs the extra capacity to create and maintain a "database", a database holds all the information such as playlists, recordings, song information, etc. The larger the amount of songs, the larger the database gets.
To resolve this capacity issue, you have to delete contents on your Sansa player using a PC.
STEP 1 - Delete files on your player 1. See first note on how to delete files on your Sansa player using a PC.
FAT corruption This error also occurs when there's a file system corruption in your Sansa player.
To resolve this issue, run error-checking to fix errors in your device using a PC
STEP 1 - Connect the Sansa player to the PC in MSC mode
STEP 2 - Run Error-checking to check and fix errors 1. Double-click on My Computer (Computer for Windows Vista). 2. Right-click on the drive letter associated with your Sansa player and select Properties. 3. Click the Tools tab and select Check Now. 4. Click both check boxes under Check disk options. 5. Click Start
If an error occurs while plugging in the player to the PC and some files are missing in the player, the database might be corrupted. To resolve this, you will need to format your player.
NOTE: Formatting will delete all files in the device. Your data (music, photos etc) is NOT recoverable.

Deleting songs


Deleting Songs Using Windows Media Player
Use Windows Media Player to view the songs that are stored on your mp3 player - best to view them in the "Sync" tab. Find the song that you want to delete, right-click the song, and select Delete (or left-click and press Delete on your keyboard). Voila!

Cannot delete the songs on mp3


I do mine through Windows Media Player
1)Plug in Sansa
2)Open up Windows Media Player and wait for the Sansa e250 icon to show up under the library. First time, might say 'What device is this' or 'Autoplay'-for autoplay,you click 'sync media files to Sansa e250 using WIndows Media Player'
3)When library shows, click 'Sync' if it is not already there.
4)Just simply click and drag the songs you want from the computer library to the list pane on the side.
5)Once your done, click 'Sart sync'

TO DELETE
1)Plug in
2)Wait for the icon under Library in WIndows Media Player
3)Go to Songs under Sansa e250
4)Right click desired songs and choose Delete. You only want to delete from Sansa e250-nothing else

Make sure the hold switch is not engaged.
Remove the songs from the player and then reload them. If they are froma subscription service, make sure they do not have fixed-term licenses on them. Right-click song --> Properties --> digital rights or media usage rights

Deleting songs


Chances are that you are using windows xp. open up your sansa folder to where it says pictuer, movies, ect. look at the picture to see what to do. In your player folder click tools --> folder options --> View. Under hidden files and folders click 'show hidden files and folders, click ok. The music folder would now show up where the videos and pictures are. Simply open the music folder and delete the ones you do not want. By default the songs are sorted by artist --> album --> song.
