I cant delete the songs from my sandisk sans am230 512Mb . i did try to pluged to the computer and delete the file but doesnt work it all


in the mp3, there should be a Format option. it deletes EVERYTHING so be careful. or you can use my computer and delete everything manually. pretty easy. to do that, go to my computer and see if you can find it there. if your music dousent show on it, its 'hidden'.

Deleting the same song, with a different name


the reason it doesn't show the track version is because you changed the ID3 tag (which is something inside the music file, not the actual file name).

Try using winamp to delete your songs, it will read all the ID3 tags properly and show you the track version names

Sansa m230 cannot see previously installed music files now that WMP11 is installed


I had the same problem on my m230. The final solution that worked for me was to disconnect then go into settings;usb and set it to MSC. Once I re-connected I could see everything.
