Re: sansa bad track
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there. Either under sync pane in windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete. Hope this helps If you still not able to delete it let me know so I can have you try something else... P.S.Please rate accordingly... Thank You Computerrep

Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,etc from MP3 Player
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"

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
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.
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 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!
The songs are in the wrong format or have expired licenses
There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files
the reason it doesn't show the track version is because you changed the ID3 tag (which is something inside the music file, not the actual file name). Try using winamp to delete your songs, it will read all the ID3 tags properly and show you the track version names
Sandisk provides "how-to" videos for everything Sansa related
what you really have to do is:
1: Double click my computer
2:Double click Sansa e250 drive
3: Right click on the icon that looks like a disk drive and click format
BE SURE TO HAVE BACKUP OF SONGS BEFORE YOU FORMAT!!!
Alright there are several steps you will need to follow on this one. Keep in mind that you will lose all of your data and need to start from scratch.
First you want to connect your MP3 to your computer. Once you see your device you will want to right click on it and choose Format, this will prompt you to confirm to delete and erase all files choose yes to continue.
After your format is complete. You will want to go into your "Settings" and then choose "Reset All", it will ask you to confirm and choose yes again.
Finally you want to go to the manufacturer's website and download the most recent firmware available for your MP3 Player. I have provided a link below: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1376
Once you click on this link you will need to download and install the software by clicking on "Download Sansa Firmware Updater" which is highlighted in red.
Then you will need to follow the on screen instructions to make sure the process is completed as instructed.
When all of these steps are complete, try transferring the files again. It should definitely work! Best of Luck!
