Bad track error. songs arent deleting after reformatting and resetting multiple amounts of times.
So i have a sansa e260 i think or whatever it is.
and ive been reformatting it over and over following the steps.
i tried deleting the songs off of it.. and even resetting it multiple times
and these songs just don't delete they wont go away.. and they wont even play ive been trying to delete them for an hour now and it doesnt work all it says is "bad track" and once this happens i have to take the battery out and put it back in..because thats the only way itll shut off once the bad track pops up. so please ive been reformatting it and resetting it and nothing has worked.. any ideas just let me know thank you.

Re: Bad track error. songs arent deleting after...
There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

Reset All NOTE: THIS IS AN ADVANCED OPERATION AND RESTORES ALL SETTINGS TO THE FACTORY DEFAULTS. NORMAL USERS ARE NOT RECOMMENDED TO PERFORM THIS OPERATION! If your device freezes up press the Menu button and hold for 15 seconds. This is like a power down of the device. Once you perform the reset, the adjustments you made during last operation will be gone.....look and see if there is a boot file in one of the folder on the player. If there is delete this file....This file gets put on the player when booting your computer with the player connected.....Download Update (http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Installer/1082/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe)
I had to use my labtop to recognize 2.0usb port Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders them selfs then format a couple of times hope this works One of the cd's I put on my sansa had some file in it that made my tracks bad and was hard to delete follow above it worked
Your DB might be corrupt. Folow the delete procedure one more time:
Delete Music Files
1) Connect your Sansa to the computer.
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
3) Select the place where you want to delete music files from
4) Highlight and delete the music file/s or folder from My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\MUSIC folder. (You can also select from a variety of music
software programs to transfer/synchronize your files).
If that fails, go ahead and update the firmware - it will delete everything, and allow you to start over from scratch among other things.
Use Windows Media Player to delete songs. Click on the song name once and then press delete on your keyboard. Reformatting will erase all the songs, but don't reformat unless you are experiencing some issue or another.
1. right click on my computer and select manage.
2. go to disk management on the left panel.
3. right click on the sansa icon, and go to format.
4. make sure that the file system is under FAT32.
This worked for me, hope it does for you.
