How do I completely wipe everything from my Sansa e250?
I got it as a gift for Christmas, and it worked fine all day, then the day after I found that when I went to add or remove music, it couldn't be done, because the 'MUSIC' file wasn't there.
Now I can add music by pasting it into the Sansa file, but I cannot remove it and it already has over 200 songs on my mp3 player.
It also has a video on it that I wish to remove yet cannot because it isn't in the video file. I've tried 'searching' the file, but it brings up no results.
This is stressing me out quite a bit. So if anyone could point me in the right direction, I'd be most grateful.
Try this. open up the drive that's recognized in my computer (mine is drive i:) open the folder, then go to 'tools' up top and click folder options. then look for something that says 'view hidden folders' or some jazz like that, then check the box 'show hidden folders' and click apply. you'll be able to get into your music and video folders then.
I dont know but if after one day your having problems with it i would take it back .. i am
the video keeps freezing up, if you actually
tried to put a movie on your sansa and entire
movie it WILL FREEZE.
this is my experience.
ive heard there are expanded memory cards
and that is why there is a slot on the side.
there is a restore everything to default i would try this if you want to keep it.

ok try to use itunes software or windows media player software. this may be user friendly for you. Use itunes it is best just add everything in the library then select synchronise to your mp3 player. be sure to connect and your computer detect the mp3 player. ok cheers uttam
Try using Windows Media Player instead, and see if you get the same result. If it loads in Windows Media Player, then the problem is with WinAmp and not your Mp3 player. When you say it loads half-way, do you mean it loads half the songs and then shuts off? Is the Sansa running on low battery? WinAmp has some kind of update released in the past week - did you download the update, and then experience the problem? It's probably not this, because other users have had the same problem that you are reporting since at least Christmas 2007.
The following is an advice from another Sansa user, so I haven't been able to verify it myself: "I have to have WinAmp open and a song playing then connect my player and then it will work fine. If I just connect my player then start WinAmp it crashes"
If all of the above fails, reformat your player and start over from scratch. Let me know how everything works out - this is an issue that not even the Sansa website seems to have an answer for.
you should try formating it. when you plug it into your computer...
go to my computer
right click on your mp3 player name under " devices with removable storage"
make sure nothing is checked.
and then press start. wait till its done, and it should work.
i can use some to..
