I actually had this exact same problem with my Sansa m230, and I was running from place to place just looking for an answer; I actually stumbled across it through some related searches here on this site ('reset' specifically), and I tried it out and it worked for me. The Sansa m230 has two USB interface modes, and choosing one will make your system recognize the device differently than if the other is chosen, so songs that were uploaded using the USB setting 'Auto Detect' (which tells the thing to use something called 'MTP' mode) won't be visible again when it's connected using 'MSC' mode, and vice-versa. Simply put: Unplug the little bugger, go into the USB settings, and choose whichever of the two settings isn't already selected, and plug it back in. For the future, I'm going to erase everything from one mode and put it back in through the other mode, just so this doesn't happen again. <. Hope this helps.

I have the fix for this:
if you are using an older unregistered copy of WINDOWS, then your problem is that you need to have a newer copy of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER operating on your system. If you have recently reformatted and lost your newer version of WM Player , then you have lost the drivers necessary to read your SANDISK player and your OS will not show the older MP3 files on your mp3 player in Windows Explorer . You need to download and install a newer version of WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER because it contains the newer drivers that your SANDISK requires.

You need to have an Mp3 player like VLC media player installed in XP or whatever your OS is. A lot of people who reformat lose their VLC media player and then only files in WMP format show up in their WIN XP explorer program.
Once you have VLC reinstalled, the old MP3's icons will reappear .

I dont know how to reset my mp3
I have a sansa 2-GB(the pink little rectangle one, doesn't say what it is just Sandisk Sansa), it shows the songs and yet all songs have been deleted to hear. It also says synchronize to your music subscription. I do have an account to Rhapsody To Go and it wont recognize the mp3 player.
i had opened the folder to where the player is connected (usb). I tried to delete everything in the window. All of it disappeared from the window, but all of my old music is still stuck on this thing. I can't seem to empty the memory and start fresh.
i cant delete it and i got it from a friend so i dont noe how 2 use it
i can't delete recordings from my mp3 player
CANNOT delete anything it shows I have nothing on the device
i open the file and thereis only play lists recordings and config. and there all blank

Yes, every time i try to delete my songs off it only takes a few off and not all of them. I have tried almost everything and it still wont get them all off. I was wondering if you could help.
it doesnt have a 'song delete' button on it and it doesn't let me delete songs either and when the thing is hooked up to the computer nothing pops up saying you can delete songs
my sansa 230 is filled up with songs that dont interest me anymore and i dont know how to delete them
What do I do?
I can't figure out how to delete my songs i dont want to make room for new songs. I just need to know how to delete the songs.
i have songs on my mp3 and they were on my pc, but after my pc was upgraded, the songs i put on before the upgrade will not show up when i plug the mp3 in to my pc. so the only songs i can remove are the ones that were put on after the upgrade. how can i delete the old songs from the player?
I let my friend barrow it and he uploaded some music. He gave it back and didnt delete the songs. Now i dont have enough room for my songs. What should i do?
cant delete songs
i got the mp3 from a friend. im trying to delete songs but i cant
I was fine with my mp3 when I first uploaded it onto my computer but then my computer had to be fixed. Now when I plug in my mp3 it says there is no music on it to be deleted but it also says there is over 375MB in use. If I unplug my mp3 the music is still there but it won't allow me to put on anything new while that much MB is taken up. How do I fix this problem?
