Delete songs


Your SanDisk Sansa Player does not allow you to delete files from within the player (But the recorded files can be deleted at the player). Instead I recommend that you follow these steps :

When your player is connected to your computer with the USB connector, you can use your computer file browser software to view all files on your player. Your player will appear as Sansa m240. Follow these steps:

1. Use the USB connector cable provided with your player to connect the USB port on the top of your player to an open USB port on your computer. The player will appear as a Windows Portable Device on your computer.

2. Delete your music files to the player with software tools like Rhapsody, Windows Media Player or Napster Client.

3. To use the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client software to delete files to your player please refer to the Windows Media Player, Rhapsody Client or Napster Client help file.

NOTE: While you can store and organize your audio files on your player using folders with names you select, your player will ignore folders and names. Instead, your Sansa player will extract information from each audio file so that you can use the software menu to navigate your files by artist, album title, song title, and other useful criteria.

hope it helps.
Have a nice day!

I want to delete old songs to put on new songs?


You should have gotten some form of a USB cable or way to connect the MP3. When you connect it, instead of opening the media player, open up your computer options("my computer") and open folder to view files. Then it should give you an option to delete files. (If you want to delete all of your previous media press Ctrl a to select all of your media and then press Delete)

Deleting files from mp3 player


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 GA_googleFillSlot("TL-IMU-Article"); q.gifhand.
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

What to take songs off of it


Use the USB connector to link your MP3 player to your PC.
1. Go to start button down in the lower left hand corner of computer screen.
2. Go to my computer and double click.
3. Find the device you want to delete songs from and double click.
(the name of the device should show up on that menu screen)
4. Should a folder come up after you double click do the same to that as well.
Once inside your folder you should be able to delete any music file inside of it by right clicking and clicking on the delete option. To delete multiple songs in this file hold down the Ctrl button on you keyboard and click once on each song you choose to delete. Once you have selected all the songs right click and delete those files.

Side note: When in the list screen (list of all your music) if you click in the view tab up above you can change the way your music files and instead of "icons" you shouold change the viewing style to "list" it will be faster to delete multiple files faster this way.

Happy deleting!

Cant delete fies from my player


I know that the manual says to use Windows Explorer, but you can use Windows Media Player instead (it is safer). Before I go into those instructions, you can still use Windows Explorer to delete as long as the songs are not makred as read-only - to check for this, right-click a song you want to delete, and see if the Read-Only box is checked under Properties. If it is not checked or you can't see your files in the first place - go to Tools --> Folder Options --> View --> check Show Hidden Files and Folders.

Deleting files


You have to plug the mp3 player into the computer, double-click My Computer, double click on the icon of the GoGear, and then go into the Music folder - exercise caution: only delete music files - if you delete files that are non-music files, you will effectively destroy your GoGear.

Windows Media Player is more complex, but it is a safer way to delete songs:

I found nofiles when trying to play somgs from mp3 player


Instead of dragging the songs directly to the player, use windows Media Player to transfer the songs instead - erase all of the ones that you have dragged on to the player first before proceeeding.

The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

I cant delete songs off of my mp3 player


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!
