Bad track problem not fixed

I have the same bad track problem as others, though I don't understand the directions given to fix it. I put the player into usb mode, then I connect it to my computer, but instead of being listed under a letter as in "f" or "g" or whatever, it is listed under "portable device". And when you say type in the that letter which the player is listed under, I can't do that because it's not listed as a letter, and I don't know where to type that phrase anyways...

Sorry for my helpless ignorance, but I am somewhat frustrated with this problem.

I have not been able to download any music on my mp3 player but it said there was music on it


If I understand you right, you bought some kind of MP3 player and it already had songs on it. Many players have some sample tracks already on when you buy the them. Also if you bought it from some other person, these are most likely his/her songs. You should just delete them if you don't like any. I can't give you specific instructions how to delete without knowing MP3 player model though.

Why are there "Bad Tracks?"


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

Bad tracks won't delete


Have you tried updating the firmware. Even if it is the lastest edition, download the firmware manually and run the software. Then format in Windows Media player. Best Regards Keith
