    The same thing happened with me. I erased music from it using Windows Media, but the music stayed on the player but does not play and just says "bad track". I don't know how to get it off because when I went back to Windows Media Player, the tracks didn't show up as being on my player at all.

    I called Sansa and they helped me. Here's how you do it. Plug your player in and then go to my computer and open it. Right click on the icon for the player. Then click open. Once it is open, right click on the PPI NAND icon and you will see a menu with Format on it. Click on the format button and it will delete ALL tracks including the bad ones...PLEASE HAVE THE MUSIC ON YOUR PLAYER SAVED SOMEWHERE ELSE BEFORE FORMATTING BECAUSE EVERYTHING WILL BE ERASED. I FORMATTED AND DELETED EVERYTHING, BUT I HAVE MY MUSIC SAVED ON LIMEWIRE. GOOD LUCK AND LET ME KNOW!

For the bad tracks go Under Settings, look for Mode or USB Mode. Put the unit in MSC (if that's available) or Rhapsody.

Connect it to the computer. See what driveletter it is :F: Sansa E280...G: Sansa E280... whatever it is.

Click Start/Run and type in chkdsk F:/f (or G: or whatever the letter is) . That will check and may fix the bad files.

I hope that helps

Deleting songs.


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
connection.
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.

Already Deleted Appearing


If the normal deletion failed, then you will have to reformat the player to get rid of them. I have a "tips & tricks" article on reformatting linked to my profile.

Lost music


If the songs are DRM-encrypted wma files, then the license may have expired or needs to be renewed.

Also, if you have the auto-sync option enabled in Windows Media Player - disable it.

Formated the SanDisk Sansa E280


You dragged & dropped files in recovery mode? Recovery mode is only for re-installing the firmware or formatting the device if it is unresponsive. If you are wanting to drag and drop files onto the device, the music needs to be put into the Music folder on the device. If you do not see the Music folder, you will need to enable hidden files and folders on your PC. Best of Luck. p.s. - you can add to this question this doesnt work.

Infinite folders and inability to play music


You need to reinstall the firmware, which can be found on Sansa's site. If this is not an option, which it likely is NOT, you need to send the device out via the MFG warranty, or just send it to the MFG. If you look into the files on this device, it has a VERY VERY bad history with performance on this site. I hope this helps! problem solved!

BAD TRACK ONCE AGAIN JUST WONT PLAY ANYMORE


Go to the Sandisk website. After that, look up your mp3 player model. Hit Ctrl+F and look for firmware. Follow the instructions. It worked for me.
