Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

ITS ALL GONE!!

Ok, so last night i had to delete a track because it said it was a "bad track" so i did that, and then reinstalled the track, because i knew that there was no way it could've been infected. everything went well. then today, i turned it on and it worked fine. then i turned it off for a while.

when i turned it back on, instead of going to the song i played last, it went to the main menu with a message saying "NOT ENOUGH SPACE FOR MUSIC DB, PLEASE FREE 6MB." i thought it was wierd, so i checked my music list to find that EVERYTHING was gone!

Could this be a virus? and if not, is there any hope?

First, I'll link you to an Anti-virus program, it's free, it's great, just register and schedule a boot scan.
Second link is for an on-line back-up I have of recovery software.
Run the recovery program and save all data to a folder on your Hard drive and virus check it.
Third link is for the firmware to re-set the mp3 player or update as needed. make sure the mp3 is not connected when you load and first run the firmware update.

Deleting 'Bad Track'


I should have Googled this before posting. I'm not sure if I found the solution here or elsewhere but...
I deleted the /system/database folder and after it restarted and rebuilt the database the 'Bad Track' was gone. I was able to load the player with MP3s and it has worked flawlessly since.

I have a new sa4315/97 which was set up last night, transferred files ok and worked well. Plugged it into the computer this morning and the device manager couldn't find it and to run the repair option. ...


Sounds like corrupt firmware.

Run Philips Device Manager, and select the repair option.

Press and hold [PLAY / PAUSE] on the player whilst connecting to the PC.

Continue to hold until Device Manager tells you otherwise.

Follow the on-screen prompts.

This puts the player into recovery mode. If Windows shows a Found new hardware window, select automatic installation, because the recovery driver is installed with Device Manager.

This will format the player and re-load the firmware.

NOTE: ALL TRACKS ON THE PLAYER WILL BE DELETED.

Bad Tracks


I'm not sure if this will work all of the time, or if it is the only way to do it so please excuse me if I'm wrong or if it doesn't work.

What I did was purged my device of all songs by going to "My Computer" and I clicked my device. I went to "MUSIC" and deleted everything. I Then switched to "MSC" as the USB Mode. I plugged it in my computer and then disconnected it so that it would restart. When it does it should say "Refreshing Database". When it was finished all the "Bad Tracks" were gone.

"Bad Track" error, though not able to turn off, or get away from that screen


I encountered the same problem with my Sansa mp3 player. To fix it, you'll have to reset your mp3 player, meaning all songs and files will be deleted when you format the mp3 player. To do so: Connect the mp3 player to your computer Go to My Computer Double Click on your mp3 player HD You'll get a Warning box saying "Formatting Will Erase ALL data on the device. This may include any settings stored on the device. To Format device, click on OK. Click OK Wait until completed with Format and you are "Bad track" free! Reload your songs using whatever software you use. I use Windows Media Player and was happy to see the songs I had on my mp3 player. All I had to do was sync them again. Hope this helps! When asked I use Windows Media player to sync so I still have that on my playlist. To get rid of
