    Here is the link to the manual for your product - the troubleshooting guide is from p. 54 onward

    I would definitely do a firmware upgrade - although the Samsung website does not say which issues it corrects. The advantage of doing the firmware upgrade is that it will allow you to start over from scratch if an individual file has corrupted your DB.

if you are deleted the song using computer interface before, it is still on hidden file. plugin your device to computer and go to your sansa directory,
unhide all hidden file and delete it if you are using windows, but for mac pc, just go to the finder then ampty the trash.

You will need to format your player. Doing this will completely erase any memory on your player. Follow the steps below:

1. Plug the player up to the computer using the USB cable.
2. Double click the My Computer icon on your desktop.
3. When that opens find your player under Removable Devices or Audio Devices. Some computers will show your player twice but will have the SD MMC card showing behind the player name. That is only for formatting the SD card.
4. Right click once on the player to open the Options menu and then click on Format
5. Click OK to any warnings that come up. There may be one or two depending on your operating system.
6. Any memory will now be erased from your player and you can disconnect from the computer.
7. Reboot your computer and plug your player back in.
8. When you see USB appear on your players screen, press and hold the M button until MTP appears on your screen.
9. Reload your music.

Memoriefull


I would try a firmware upgrade first from Sandisk's website, but if that fails to resolve the issue:
1.       “I can’t load any more songs into my mp3 player” or “An incorrect number of songs show up.” (MEMORY/FORMATTING ISSUE)
Sometimes, you can’t load any more songs into your player because, well, there just isn’t any more space left on your player.  Mp3 player product documentation does not actually list the actual amount of memory that you can use in your player, and it doesn’t list the actual number of songs that you can realistically fit on your player.  Every mp3 player needs a certain amount of memory space to operate and firmware upgrades decrease this available space – so, your 2GB mp3 player actually contains only 1.7 or 1.8 GB for music and other media files.  The mp3 player that says “can hold up to 1000 songs” may only hold 400 songs – the product documentation assumes that you are loading a 1-minute song in the lowest possible quality format – not very realistic.  A single 30-minute audiobook, speaker file, or video can seriously bring this number down.
Other times, however, you are experiencing a formatting issue or memory corruption.  If you plug your mp3 player into a computer that has an NTFS file system, and then plug it into a computer that has a FAT32 file system, you may experience this formatting issue (file system/formatting issue).  Similarly, this will happen if you plug an mp3 player into a computer running Windows Vista, and then plug it into a computer running Windows XP (operating system/formatting issue).  Or, if you plug your computer into a PC, and then into a MAC (PC or system/formatting issue).  Or, if you plug it into a computer with Windows Media Player 10, and then into a computer running Windows Media Player 11 (software/formatting issue).
There are three other possible ways to resolve this issue – firmware upgrade, recovery, or reformatting/formatting.  WARNING: All of the methods suggested below will erase all of the songs off your player – back up all files first by transferring them to your PC.  It is best to do a firmware upgrade first – these are available from the manufacturer’s website.  Recovery methods vary by mp3 player – check with your manufacturer’s website or user’s manual for details.  Many mp3 manufacturers have their own recovery tools – the Sansa Recovery Tool, a Philips’ Device Manager Repair, or the Apple Recovery Tool for instance.  Other times, there is a specific button that triggers the recovery mode – volume + for most players, REC buttons for others, play for others, and skip forward for still others.  The general formula goes something like this, although you may have to substitute another button for “volume +”: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
Before proceeding with a format or reformat of your mp3 player, check with the manufacturer first.  On many players, a format or reformat along the lines suggested here will override your mp3 player’s native formatting and render your player unusable.  Transcend’s T.Sonic player is especially susceptible to this problem, and should never be formatted.  Also, the instructions below are for Windows-based PCs, not for Macintosh.  There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in some cases by updating the player's firmware or reloading the firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.
WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.
Check if the 
file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in 
Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your 
Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Insignia mp3 players are a little buggy in that they occasionally get file system problems that cause strange things like this to happen. First backup your songs from the mp3 player, and select "erase internal memory". That actually reformats the memory. Then put your songs back on the mp3 player. If it still doesn't work, please advise.

 “I can’t load any more songs into my mp3 player” or “An incorrect number of songs show up.” (MEMORY/FORMATTING ISSUE)

Apparently, if you add too many folders, especially via Playlist, via Windows Media Player, the Mp3 player's file system will become unstable - it can only handle a certain number of additional folders. To resolve the issue:
1. Connect the player to the PC using the USB cable.
2. Open Windows Media Player.
3. Go to the Sync or Devices tab and delete all content from the player.
4. Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
5. Select the Devices tab, highlight the ILO or Siren player and click on Properties.
6. Uncheck the box "Create Folder Hierarchy on Device"
Now, when music is transferred, it will be placed in the root directory of the flash memory disregarding the folder structure and allowing all tracks to be seen.

This procedure was designed for Siren Mp3 players, but is applicable to many other Mp3 players. It is not a guaranteed fix for every Mp3 player and every error of this type, but it is certainly not a widely known or reported solution.
