    I've deleted all songs from my Sansa e200 and they still show up in the song list as bad tracks. Bad MP3 player. Cheaper is never better. Shame on SanDisk.

    The same thing happens to me. I deleted some songs that I wanted gone, and then they are still there when I unplug it from the computer. When I click on it, it says 'Bad Track' and skips to the next track that is good.

    When I first got this, it happened once before, but then a couple weeks later after I unplugged it, it said something about 'Configuring'. Anyway, after that, I turned it on and the bad songs were gone.

    But now it's happened to me again and I have about 20 'Bad' songs on my SanDisk. It won't account for the new songs I just spent all morning putting on either. :(

Hi,
I can't delete all the music off my sansa e200 (8gb) player. I want to put it back to original factory settings, but it won't let me, and Ive tried so many times. Any answers would help immensely, and also if they could be simplified as computers and technology are not my strength haha.

Adding to what the "Best solution" said: There is something about the two folders that files are saved into. If you go to settings, then down to USB, there are the Auto Detect and MSC options. If you are having problems switch to the opposite one you are running, then reconnect with your cable to your computer. You will see odd, or incomplete files, that only come up in just the Auto Detect or MSC modes. You have to swith between the two to delete the hidden files.

Okay, I think i know whats wrong,
I put my setting from MSC to MTP and then i went to the song that was apparently a "bad track" and it worked but then when i went to the "shuffle" mode or to the "play all" mode and scrolled through all my songs to find the one that was a "bad track" that song would not work, so im like REALLY confused but i guess that kinda is a solution?

I had this same problem with my Sansa e280, I did some research and found that MTP mode is used when syncing with Windows Media Player.  So if you plugged in your player under MTP and simply tried to drag and drop using Windows Explorer the player won't recognize.  I have heard that you should be able to view them on the Sync tab in WMP but I personally have not tried.  

The way I got rid of the songs was by going into my Sansa Settings and changing the USB mode to MSC, opening the Player by going to My Computer, then (if using Windows XP) click on Tools > Folder Options.  Click on the View tab and Select "Show Hidden Files and Folders".  Click "OK" Then Right click on the MUSIC Folder and Select "Properties"  Uncheck "Read Only" and "Hidden".  Unplug your Player and it will restart.  Viola, no more ghosted songs.

I hv sansa clip 1gb - in which i have some songs i.e aprox.850mb and that cannot be seen in my pc in sansa clip as a drive g.how to delete songs and add songs , is there any driver of software or...

1. First, check your device setting up on MTP or MSC? Turn on device, go to "settings" , press down or up to find "USB Mode", you can see the check mark at MTP (auto detect) or MSC mode. Change to another usb mode.
2. You have 2 ways to delete songs:
2.1. Delete songs by device: play songs, press down (sub menu) until you meet "delete song", select it and yes
If you delete all items in device: Settings, Format, and yes
2.2. Delete songs by computer: plug device to computer, double click on device icon, Music folder, and delete songs you want. If you don't see songs in there, unplug the device from pc, and then change USB mode, and plug device to pc to delete.
Good luck

I cant delete any songs

Hello,

The e200 series players have 2 versions, plus a Rhapsody version.
How to check your version:
On the player
1. Go to the Main Menu
2. Select Settings
3. Select Info
4. Check the firmware version, if it says
v1 it is a version 1
( or Rhapsody
Rhapsody also supports Rhapsody service and channels
USB mode is Rhapsody/PlaysForSure instead of MSC/MTP for
the normal v1
Rhapsody fonts are smooth, antialiased )
v3 it is a version 2

Having a version 2 player, songs can be deleted on the player itself:
1. In playback mode, press submenu.
2. Select the Delete Song item.

For all versions you can delete songs:
1. Making a connection to a computer first.
2. Use the Windows explorer on the computer:
Select "My Computer" on the desktop and go to the internal memory or expansion card of the e250:
Go into the MUSIC folder. Select your songs inside the MUSIC folder and select delete.

Need more information ? Just post a comment.

Sansa e200 series

Why not read this before doing so ?

The MSC mode is meant for making backup files from player to the
computer and for formatting the player.

When you can access your player in MSC mode:
1. you're able to save files from the player to the computer.
2. after saving you can format the player.
- - - - - - - - - - -
After the player is formatted it has its full memory cleared and the
firmware needs to be reinstalled.
Firmware download for e200 series guide (follow the steps):
http://kb.sandisk.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/306/kw/e200*/r_id/101834
The "Sansa Updater Installation" is needed for firmware update:
http://mp3support.sandisk.com/sansa/Application/SansaUpdaterInstall.exe

When the firmware is restored all software and maps for transfers should be available again: Player ready for MTP mode again.
The MTP mode is meant for media transfers with synchronizing capability and playing the device.

How to get rid of the "synchronize to continue music subscription" message if it just appears out of nowhere on your player- this fixed mine when it gave me that message:

delete the STORE.HDS file in the system/wmdrmpd directory of your sansa (optional)

import your protected songs into WMP, and resync your protected music (with WMP) in MTP mode

play a protected song and let it rebuild the store.hds file (you will experience severe lag for about 15 seconds as it rebuilds) and the music should play.

Deleting demo songs

For Windows XPTM users, you are connecting the device in MTP mode to the computer by default. You will need to set the device to MSC mode, so go to the device menu\Settings\Advanced\Protocol = > Press Play/Pause key to select MSC mode which will appear as such on the screen. Reconnect the device to the computer, and you can now see those files and delete them.
DO NOT forget to set the device back to MTP mode when finished, so go to device menu\Setting\Advanced = > Select MTP mode.
