Some of my songs play but the new ones say "bad track"


Make sure the files are all compatible with the device (probably Mp3 in this case). Check your instruction manual to find out which files will work on the device. Also, try testing the songs on Windows Media Player. If an error message comes up, the mp3 might be corrupt or has an attachment that makes it not able to play.

"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

I did not get the "Swtich to Recovery mode" screen, my screen was stuck on "Bad Track." I formatted the drive (which deleted EVERYTHING), and then i put the songs back on, and it works just fine. Try this, it might help.
