Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Is there an easy way to delete all the music off of my mp3 player?

Back when i got my mp3 player, i screwed things up when i was uploading music. now, for whatever reason, some files are corrupted and i can't seem to get them off my mp3 player. when i go into "my computer" and then click on the shortcut to look at the files on my mp3 player, i can't find the ones that i want to delete, like, there's no file for them. but when i turn on my mp3 player, there are literally hundreds of corrupted songs.

is there a way that i can "reboot" my sansa e280 and just start over new?


in my mp3 are many forder that i can not delete and some songs that will not play.

    Somehow I cannot delete songs from my sansa e280 rapsody player. Manual says that they have to be deleted thru windows explorer, but they do not even show up there. I can play all songs & download new ones, but canno delete any songs.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

You need to use the coby media manager to delete or upload file to your player. In BearShare, go to the File menu and select Explore Downloads, note where your files are, then go to the coby media manager to transfer them. Here is a link to the manual for your device:

Philips GoGear: delete music from library & are there any Unicode


Here's the deal:
Open the Philips Device Manager that came with the install cd, and do a Repair - this will erase everything so you can start over from scratch. This will also take care of your squares issue.

No dice on the playlist issue - sorry.

Next, you have to disable the auto sync feature in Windows Media Player to prevent it from auto-loading all of those songs/files that you don't want. by opening Windows Media Player, highlighting the Sync tab, clicking on the little black arrow to bring down the drop-down menu, clicking on "Set Up Sync" (make sure your mp3 player is connected to computer, or this option will not appear), and unchecking the box that says "automatically sync files to my device". This will give you manual sync instead.

Take out the four screws on the back and pop out the battery then put it back on. Make sure you synced the songs properly. Add to the problem how you added your songs and I might be able to help.
Good Luck
