Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

2 Answers

I can't delete my music!!! Please help.

I plugged my Sandisk sansa e280 up, I looked at the files and tried looking for the music file. For some reason there is none. I see a 'tmp' file but no music file.
-Is that the music file?
The problem is that the file is empty and my MP3 player has over 1300 songs on it.
-What is the 'tmp' file?
I synchronized my music on my player through either Rhapsody, which put crappy songs on my player, or Windows Media Player and it's almost like there is no music on it. I want a lot of music gone but the computer can't even detect the music so I can delete it. I want the music gone!(But not all of it.
-What should I do?
-Am I doing something wrong?
-Will I have to format it?
HELP ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S: My MP3 player is a little over a year old.

Go to My Computer -> right-click on the Sansa folder and go to "properties"
There you can check for errors, run the check, then go back and delete the files that are corrupted.

I'm having the same problem and trying to work through it. The problem is that your memory in the music section is corrupt. You may need to reformat. If I figure it out, I'll leave a note for others.

Apparently, this is a problem with this player. Not sure why. I've had this problem in the past and was able to fix it by disconnecting the battery and then reconnecting. But this time it's gone. I had a "bad track" message before it stopped.

Added music, but can't listen


I experienced a similar problem caused by corrupt files saved on the internal memory of my e280.
(I could not delete/remove the files) I had to format the internal drive of the e280
and re-copy the files back on to the unit. Works great now. When formatting the device
use the command from windows. (ie right click on the internal memory icon and select format)

Note: Formatting will remove/delete all the files (eg music,photos..) from the e280 so make sure that
you have backups.

Cheers

Bad Tracks


For the bad tracks go Under Settings, look for Mode or USB Mode. Put the unit in MSC (if that's available) or Rhapsody.

Connect it to the computer. See what driveletter it is :F: Sansa E280...G: Sansa E280... whatever it is.

Click Start/Run and type in chkdsk F:/f (or G: or whatever the letter is) . That will check and may fix the bad files.

I hope that helps

Formated the SanDisk Sansa E280


You dragged & dropped files in recovery mode? Recovery mode is only for re-installing the firmware or formatting the device if it is unresponsive. If you are wanting to drag and drop files onto the device, the music needs to be put into the Music folder on the device. If you do not see the Music folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your PC. Best of Luck. p.s. - you can add to this question this doesnt work.

Infinite folders and inability to play music


You need to reinstall the firmware, which can be found on Sansa's site. If this is not an option, which it likely is NOT, you need to send the device out via the MFG warranty, or just send it to the MFG. If you look into the files on this device, it has a VERY VERY bad history with performance on this site. I hope this helps! problem solved!
