Delete demo files on Sandisk c150?

I can't find any way to delete the factory-loaded demo music and photo files on my new c150 either when its connected to my computer or with the c150 controls. They aren't listed in any file directory, but their titles appear in the LCD and they play OK. The only files/albums that that show up in the Windows directory are the ones I loaded. The file structure on the c150 doesn't seem to match the description in the manual either. No firmware update is available. I don't think there's any connction, but I unplugged the c150 before the USB controller said it was safe once or twice.

    (Answering my own question.) From further googling I've learned that the pre-loaded files on Sansa players are "hidden". To see them and delete or move them in a Windows directory view, all that's necessary is open the Sansa as a Windows directory (under "My Computer"), and to check the "show hidden files" option in the Windows "folder options" under "Tools".

The demo songs still don't show up when I select "Show hidden files/folders". I had go to Menu->Settings->Format, and proceed with formatting it to get the demo songs off my Sansa c240 (This will delete all songs/files).

Loss of picture and video file while transferring to a computer... how to recover data?


I have had success with this article...
Digital camera recovery

You have to use a usb card reader either on your computer or an external USB card reader. Put the camera memory card in the card reader, open the recovery program, then select the drive where files are deleted, then press "Start" and wait for it to do it's magic.

How do you recover accidentally deleted video files from sony webbie HD?


First of all, do not save any new file to camera's memory card.

Take out memory card, and connect it to computer using a card reader. You should see memory card shown as a drive letter (like H:) in Windows Explorer.
Download asoftech data recovery software

Install and open the data recovery software, select the memory card, and click 'Next' button.

You may try some recovery software to rescue the files on your MP2 player, here are some for your option.
Photo Video Music Recovery (for Windows)
Photo Video Music Recovery for Mac

Both programs can also recover video and music. Note: Before your files are recovered, do not attempt to save more files to the player in case the original files(your pictures) are overwritten.

"MTP DB Mismatch Format?"


The Insignia NS-DA2G needs to be placed in File & Folder mode, and you'll need to have your mac show you all files on the device. Macs will create a smaller file that starts with "._" that contain very little information, but can cause problems with Windows based or Windows preferred devices. These files are not ignored by the PC or certain Windows optomized devices. You should erase these files for the unit to perform normally.

If you are unable to delete these files, you can re-format the device to FAT-32 and that will erase all information on the device. You shouls also hit the reset button (located next to the "HOLD" switch) for about 5-10 seconds to clear the internal settings.

"MTP DB Mismatch Format?"


I had the same problem In My Sandisk Sansa, and the way I fixed it is the following: Plug your player in your computer in MSC mode (On your player, go to settings, then USB and choose MSC) Then in "my computer", right-click on the player icon and go to "properties". In "properties" go to "tools" and in the first option, which is "error checking", click on "check now". In check disk options, check both "automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recorevy of ba sectors". It's going to take a few minutes (phase 1 and phase 2 will be displayed). Wait until it is complete. When it is done, close the "properties" window and right-click on the icon of the player and click on "format"! It should say format complete and the player should be then be ready to synchronize files again! Now Enjoy That Good luck!! From:-Javed(Taj)

Pavit won't play


You have to reset it back to factory settings because you deleted with the original demo music some files needed to start the built-in player. So do the factory reset after you restart your Pavit MP3 Player. Then copy you music and play them.
