The error came out after i manually deleted music folder using windows explorer. I tried suggested soulutions by the software sonicstage until format options but to no avail. anybody knows workaround for this? pls. help... maybe i need to create the music folder i deleted but i forgot already whats the name.
I tried that because i have the same problem but it didn't work any other ideas, i phoned a place called tech guys which is linked to pc world where i bought my laptop from and they said it could be the mp3 conflicting with a windows update and they suggested a full reinstall of windows. would love to have your view on their thoughts

When you connect the MP3 player to yourcomputer with the supplied USB cable then computer detects the player as anexternal storage device or a Removable disk, you can then view the folder onyour MP3 player. Open the music folder and create a new folder on the playerexactly the same way you create a folder on your computer's hard drive. Toorganise your music, make a folder name with the name of the music album andplace the album's MP3 files in this folder, then copy the mp3 files from thecomputer into this folder. You will then be able to select the music you want to play by the music albumfolder.To delete a filefrom your MP3 player, connect the supplied USB cable to your player and thenplug it into the USB port of your computer. The computer will detect your player then click on this device to view thefiles, you can then click on the music file to highlight the file and thenpress the Del key to delete the file off your MP3 player.
There are 2 ways to delete music files. You can delete them from the player directly or using the computer. To delete music files directly from the Sansa player, follow these steps: 1. In playback mode, press Submenu button. 2. Select the Delete Song item.
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 connection. 3. Locate the folder where your music files are stored. 4. Highlight and delete the music files or folder.
Turn on the player_slide power switch up_hold about 3 seconds, release
Silvania boots, then system Menu appears.
Select Music icon
Scroll with <> to highligh hidden MediaLib Update
player rebuilds Music media database used in player
use Dir List to open the browser. Navigate to location of your music files
Use Explorer Icon to browse directory list and use Delete button (square with X) to delete Selected file in Explorer view.
In My Computer, Use Properties to Name (Label) your drives. You see name given in My Computer, makes much easier to locate files. For easier browsing in Windows try a Toolbar for My Computer(XP) or Computer (Vista, 7) to browse your devices (I have a Computer toolbar on the taskbar of Every Computer I use)
Open SMPK8858 in my computer, you see RECORDING folder
This was the only folder on mine when I started, and Sealed, Brand New unit came with NO SOFTWARE and microscopic manual
Create new file structure for storing your PHOTOS, VIDEOS, Ebooks etc. Don't place everything in one folder, use logical folders to store your files. Drag and Drop FILES into your folders in my computer, or create a shortcut on desktop to access your device when connected.
If you go into Windows Media Player, you have to change the Library option from Music to Photos and THEN go into the Sync tab - should now display photos instead of music.
Alternatively, you can double-click My Computer, double-click the icon of the Sansa, and find the images or picture folder - you may have to change your usb mode to msc in order to view this folder (don't forget to change it back later, or not all of your files will show up when you want them to). ONLY delete image files - if you delete system files, your mp3 player will become unusable.
Or, you can follow the method reccomended by your manual - the full user's manual is available from Sanidsk's website:

Actually you cannot delete them from your mp3. you gotta connect it via usb to your pc, go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync pane in 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
If you still not able to delete it let me know so I can have you try something else...
P.S.Please rate accordingly...
change the settings of the player to MSC and connect the device to your computer. It will be detected as a removal disc drive. Open it and it should contain the folders in your player. IF you can only see a few folders. Click on Tools-Folder Option - Show hidden files and folders. Then you should see the folders that you have. Right click on the song and choose delete.
The only way I know to delete music files or voice or FM recordings, is straight from the User's manual on the CD:
1. Set the e250 to MSC mode.
2. Plug it in to your computer with the USB connector.
3. Open the Sansa e250 drive in My Computer and browse to the MUSIC folder (or RECORD folder)and delete the files there. (That's where you also add music files, by dragging from other explorer windows.)
To delete (or add) photo and video files, you have to use the Media Converter, which you install from the disk that came with the e250.
