SOURCE: Unknown files and impossible to delete

First turn on the palyer and change the usb mode to MSC and when you connect it the the computer it should show up as a flashdrive type thing. right click on ita and select format make sure the when you format it it is going to be formatted to FAT32 type it will delete every thing on the player including those files you said couldnt be deleted

SOURCE: unreadable files for Sansa e250

Don't worry, there's a solution.

You have to run what's called "Check Disk."

  1. Switch the sansa player into MSC usb mode in the settings under "USB Settings".
  2. Then plug it into your PC and goto my computer.
  3. Then Right click the player's icon and goto properties
  4. Then there should be tabs on the top of the box that pops up. Click "tools"
  5. Then there is an area that says area-checking with a button that says "Check Now..."
  6. A box pops up; Click both option boxes and press start.
  7. Then exit out of all the boxes and safely remove the player.
  8. Unplug player and let it restart.
WARNING: Sometimes it will make files "disappear", but still use space. In that case you will have to format it and put the music back on. It all depends on how "corrupted" the files were. If your files disappear, reply stating so and I will help you out with that if you don't know how to format.

Thank you and please respond with any comments or more questions.

Cannot delete file.


Most PMP's come with a format option in the settings menu. Back up any important files (if any) and format your player. This usually fixes most hard drive related problems.

Help me!!


It is difficult to explain not knowing exactly what I'm looking at, but I have the feeling that the files that are locked on the Sansa are probably marked "READ ONLY." I am unfamiliar with your exact player -- But I know the one that I have (A Sansa Express) allows me to look at the files in a directory format like a disc drive. If you are able to do this, look at the file in question by choosing the "properties" tab while doing a right mouse click. In the Attributes section, are you able to change these parameters? I'm only speculating -- so don't hold it against me if I'm wrong.
