I deleted the songs my Sansa came with and now when I play all they show up says Bad Track and skip to a working song. The artists of the deleted songs still show. I'm a neat freak and this is driving me crazzzzy!
What you really have to do is:
1: Double click my computer
2:Double click Sansa e250 drive
3: Right click on the icon that looks like a disk drive and click format
BE SURE TO HAVE BACKUP OF SONGS BEFORE YOU FORMAT!!!
I am having the same problem - the thing is when i go to my computer and into the music folder, it is empty as the songs were already deleted! any other suggestions on how to remove these "bad tracks"?
Connect your sansa to your computer. Now go to my computer, then look for it. It should either show up as a removable drive or as an mp3 player. Make sure it is in msc mode. Do this by going to settings then usb mode and selecting msc(this is on your sansa when it is not connected)
Now, click on your sansa,(it may be something like removable disk j)and click on the folder marked music. Now right-click on the artists/ songs you detest, and delete them!
I hope this helps. Happy listening.

Well run a virus scan on ur pc and scan the player.. apart from that re-organise the folders n files in the player.. and if ur aware about formatting.. format first and then perform rest of the operations.
If you want to delete EVERY track off the player, then reformat the player in Windows Media Player - it's a shortcut - see my "tips and tricks" on formatting mp3 players If there are artist, album traces, then you need to click on every subfolder under your device in Windows Media Player and delete every trace that way - tedious, but effective -Tha Mp3 Doctor There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files
Yeah, I have that "Bad Track" problem for some my tracks or even for entire albums. The only thing I can think of that would cause that is if you skip over the track consistantly. Anyway, the best solution I've found for that is to go to Windows Media Player, delete the track, and then put it back on if you have it backed up on your computer. P.S.: MAKE SURE YOU HAVE THE SONG BACKED UP ON YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT THIS. If that doesn't work, you should find another way to get the song. Unfortunately, I can't help you with the "No Files" problem since I haven't experienced that.
I did not get the "Swtich to Recovery mode" screen, my screen was stuck on "Bad Track." I formatted the drive (which deleted EVERYTHING), and then i put the songs back on, and it works just fine. Try this, it might help.
