There is a folder where i can't delete because it says it cannot read from folder or disk. It's got a bunch of random **** in there which I cannot even open or do anything with it. And I think it's causing the system to not be able to read the new songs I put on there. SOS!!!

if its is a Flash-based MP3 player. That means that it has a small amount of built-in memory inside the player as well as an SD expansion slot for storing songs. When the player is connected, songs may be stored in either of these two places. you probably stored your songs on the internal memory. In either case, there are two basic ways to delete songs off of your player. You can use MP3 software (such as MusicMatch) to do this or just do it by
hand. To delete the files, follow the same process but delete the files instead of adding them. Assuming that you are using Microsoft Windows, click on "My Computer" and find the drive that is labeled "Removable Disk" and click on it. Look for a songs folder and continue to drill down folder by folder until you see your songs show up in the list. Highlight the songs that you want to delete (or the whole folder) and hit the delete button on your computer.and it will delete.hope this helps
To delete files directly from the Sansa player, follow these steps:
1. In playback mode, press the Submenu button.
2. Select Delete.
To delete music files using the computer, follow these steps:
1. Connect your Sansa to the computer.
2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
3. Locate the folder where your files are stored.
NOTE: Music files are stored in the MUSIC folder. Voice recording files
are stored in RECORDING folders. Photos and Videos are stored at PHOTO
and VIDEOS folders, respectively.
4. Highlight and delete the desired files.
You may try to delete your folders with Unlocker If it doesn't you could try in dos (run cmd):
attrib -s -h -r "location" /s
(location being where the folder is located.)
This should remove any Systems file flag, read only flag or hidden file flag. del /F "folders"
1st plug your sansa into the computer then go to my computer and click on the sansa e 250 icon then click on the "media folder" and after that click on the songs folder then a bunch of folders will come up click on these and they hold your songs from there you can delete them.
try going to "my computer" then scroll down until you see an icon that says Sansa e250 click on that then search through both files(2 folders should come up one says data and another says media) try finding the source in here
Might be set read-only? Try right clicking on it, going to properties, and seeing if the read-only option is checked. Me, I found a program called Unlocker, located at http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/
did you try going into (if you have a windows pc) My Computer, and navigating to where your player is (your player should be hooked up to your pc via a usb cord - the one that came with your player). your player could be in a removable disk - mine is (J:), or it could be under Other (all of this is still in My Computer). Click on different removable disks if you have to, until you find the one that has your player. Once you have found your player, double click to go inside it. Inside of your player should be a list of folders. One of them should be named Music. It could also have a Playlists folder, an Audible folder, or a Pictures folder, etc. Click on the Music folder. You should see a folder of all of your songs, OR you will see your song files. Select the ones you want to delete, right click and select Delete, or drag the files to your recycle bin. Hope this helps!
I just fixed exactly the same problem, it's a virus that corrupts and blanks songs at random. Do the following:
-Back up any songs that AREN'T in the folder with the repeating one or any you cant delete, they likely will have corrupted
-Set USB mode to MTP
-Plug into computer
-Right click on icon and select "format"
At this point the screen will display 'writing' until you unplug it. If you dont have the firmware updater, download it! Tell it to update the firmware and it will set up the folder structures for you again. SCAN ANY SONGS YOU BACKED UP FOR VIRUSES!. Dump all your songs back on and you should be OK.
what you need to do is this.
i cant help you if you have a mac but i can help you if you have a pc.
for pcs, you need to plug in your player.once its connected, double click "my computer".in it, the player should have registered and their should be an icon that says "sandisk sansa e260" ( or something like that, i couldnt exsactly tell you considering my player is completely busted at the moment.)then you should see a bunch of files.the files will include album art,songs,and folders for videos or pictures.in the pictures folder you can access your pictures,and right click on the files you wish to delte, and simply just...hit delete.
