Re: Sansa m230 delete specific song from the player
Your SanDisk Sansa does not allow you to delete files from within the player.
Instead I recommend that you follow the steps below to delete the music
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 panel in your 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
P.S.Please rate accordingly... Thank You Computerrep

Connect the Sansa to your computer using the supplied cable. Open up the operating system's explorer window. The Sansa will show as either a Sansa or a removable hard drive, depending on the USB mode. Either way, open it and you'll see a folder named "MUSIC". Open that. You can either delete entire albums or navigate into them and delete individual tracks.
The easiest way to delete songs from it will be to connect it to your computer-> Open the mp3 folder and select the songs you want to delete. Hit shift+del to delete them. Then close the window, use the safely remove hardware to stop the device and disconnect it from your computer.
1. connect it to your computer (through usb) 2. go to "my computer" 3. go to sansa (which should have appeared in "my computer") 4. select the songs you want to delete and click DEL (or drag them into the trash can)
Im affraid to answer this question. because i only gain' thanks for trying" but its ok.
In your case , If you want to delete all files in your sansa, maybe you can delete it by formatting your sansa disk. You can find maybe the format on the menu and select format the disk(something like that.) Or you can connect the sansa to the computer and delete all files in there. You can browse your files in the my computer and select the drive created by computer when the sansa is connected.
Hi big dee.
Deleting songs from your M230 can be done by either browsing the player through your Windows Explorer and then selectively deleting the music file, or by formatting the player which would delete all of your music files.
It's also important to know that your player has 2 modes -- MTP and MSC -- because music files saved in one mode would not be seen in the other mode, and vice versa.
To switch the modes on your player, use the menu and navigate as follows:
Menu > Settings > USB
You would get a choice of "Autodetect" (this is for MTP) and MSC.
Here's how to delete the files:
Plug in your player to your computer. Open explorer and check if your player is detected. Your player's LCD would display "USB Connected" and the mode would be indicated below that.
If your player's mode is MTP:
A. Look for the Sansa M230 icon on Explorer (it will be recognized as a Portable Audio Device). Double left click on it to browse the player.
B. The player will have 2 sub-folders: "Data" and "Media". Double left-click on the "Media" folder and either find your music files or open the "Music" folder to find your music files
If your player's mode is MSC:
A. Look for the Sansa M230 icon and drive letter on Explorer (it will be recognized as a "Removable Drive". Double left click on it to browse the player.
B. The player will have several sub-folders such as "Audible", "Config", "Record". You may already be able to see your music files or the player may have a "Music" sub-folder. Open that to check for your files
Once you've located your files, you may now be able to delete them.
Once you've unplugged your player, the M230's LCD will display the message "Rebuilding Library". Let that process complete, then you may turn on your player to confirm that the files have been deleted.
To format your player, just right-click on the M230 icon in Explorer, then select "Format". When the Format window appears, make sure to select "FAT" as the File System type, and also make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox at the bottom of the Window remains un-checked.
I hope this info helps. Enjoy your M230. :)
