Don't erase any files other than music files - don't erase system, dat, hidden, or ini files - you will destroy your mp3 player.

Use Windows Media Player to delete music off your player:
The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

To delete files from your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My Directions:

1. Connect your mp3 player to the computer

2. Open Windows Media Player

3. Click on the icon of your Mp3 player on the left-hand side of the Library

4. Click on the Songs, Tracks, or other Music Folder

5. Find a song or songs that you want to delete

6. Left-click the song once to highlight it

7. Press the “Delete” button on your computer’s keyboard

I downloaded music on mines and now i cant find it on here no more


Hi!

Run anti virus. Connect your device to your pc and scan for virus. This might recover affected files.

Most usual virus attached with downloaded files activate on mp3 and mp4 and will hide all your files. The files will still be in there if you look for it as removable drive on your pc. It seems that folder where it was saves was in hidden mode.

I do suggest you reformat your player and download safe music files.]

Hope it helps

My Mp4 is empty but it says that is full


Yeah there is quite often a hidden folder called trash, or trash/501 or something similar. I think its just a precaution to stop you deleting an importnat song or file by accident
To access this folder you need to double click your player in the my computer section of explorer, this will give you a folder view of your player , as I said earlier look through the folders for a trash folder of something similar
sometimes its greyed you but you can still click it, it may help from the my computer screen to go to Tools>Folder Options>Click the view tab then click by Show hidden files and folders

My music will not GO AWAY!!!!


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, 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.
-----
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

I need to know how to delete songs off my mp3/sansa sandisk c250


Open "My computer", then "Sansa c250 (E:)", find properties to show hidden files and a "Music" file (which is hidden) will appear. You can erase music directly from there.
