Cannot delete songs

I've downloaded songs onto my mp3 player from several different computers. Some of the first songs I put on there refuse to be deleted. I have no idea what else to try...any tips?

    I've inherited my daughter's Sansa m250 (she upgraded). I want to delete her songs and load my favourite oldies instead. I deleted the music files through my computer when it was connected by USB and the audio file is empty, but the songs are still on the MP3. I downloaded the manual but didn't find it helpful. Can anyone help?

Try going to my computer and under the heading 'Devices with removable storage you should see your player listed. Double click on it to open and then you should see the files there in the music folder. Highlight and delete all files. Hope this works for you. :)

Delete music files from ipod touch


Bearshare is a program that can be used to download and listen to audio files on your computer. You can also use Bearshare to put music directly onto your iPod or portable music player. Using Bearshare to add songs to your iPod will save you the time of having to search for your downloaded files using iTunes. By using Bearshare, you can download a new song and place that song directly onto your iPod without having to open another software program.

Download the latest version of Bearshare (see Below). http://www.bearshare.com/ Install Bearshare onto your computer. When you do, Bearshare will search for audio files that are already on your computer. The program will then add those files to the "My Library" portion of Bearshare. Open Bearshare. Click the "iPod/Mp3 Player" option on the left side of Bearshare. Plug your iPod into your computer. A dialog box will open on your screen. Click "OK." The "iPod/Mp3 Player" option will be replaced with the name of your iPod. Click the "My Library" option in the top left corner of Bearshare. Any songs that you added when installing Bearshare or that you have downloaded with Bearshare will appear on the screen. Click on the song and then drag the file over to the name of your iPod found on the left side of the screen. Doing so will add that song to your iPod. Continue doing this until you are finished adding songs to your iPod. Disconnect the iPod and close Bearshare.

My mp3 player doesn't want to play songs no matter what i do. i've placed songs in it, but it just keeps deleting them all the time. also, even if it does play, only fragments of the song are...


MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

How to delete songs put onto mp3 by another computer


If you wish to remove all of the music from your device, follow these steps

1. Press the Menu button
2. Select "settings"
3. Select "system"
4. Select "erase all"

If you wish to remove certain songs but not all, Insignia recommends using Best Buy Rhapsody to manage the files on your device. The program recognizes the MP3 player and Files can be dragged between your MP3 player and Rhapsody. Even tho this perticular model is discontinued, they still have the manual online. Go to the website and put the Model number in and click the appropriate model(it shows NS-DA1G and NS-DA2G). The next page has all the manuals and information you should need

My player deleted songs


Several options:
1) You can delete the songs from the computer itself using Windows Explorer. Be careful to only delete music files, not system files.
2) Use the format option on the player itself - will erase everything.
3) Delete the songs using Windows Media Player

After selecting one of the 3 options, you can then reload only the songs that you want onto the player.

Loading protected songs onto MP3 player


What I would recommend you to do is to delete the songs that are not playing for the device then transfer them back...Your SanDisk Sansa does not allow you to delete files from within the player.
Instead I recommend that you follow the steps below to delete the music
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync panel in your windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
Hope this helps

P.S.Please rate accordingly...
Thank You

Downloading music onto a mp3player


I think I fugured it out. I think this should set the thing up for you. Turn the unit on. Push the button in and hold for the count of three. Wait as you count to two then push the buton in quickly. The screen should display a different "MUSIC" sign. Now the tiny file type in the upper left of the screen should say "mp3". Now make sure you are loading mp3 files. Be sure the unit is ON when you connect it to the USB port. Drag and drop files onto the mp3 player. I got it to accept 5 songs so far. I am working with Windows xp. Hope it helped!

Player skips songs


I think you should ask yourself these questions: 1) Are the song formats compatible with your MP3 player? 2) Is it possible that the website(s) you downloaded them from had/have given you faulty songs? 3) Am I smart enough to figure ot without PC Geek's help that I might need to try to download a different song on the same computer, the same songs on a different computer, or a different song on a different computer? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you should have your solution.
