"Bad Track" error, though not able to turn off, or get away from that screen
I deleted some songs off the mp3, but not all of them. Then i discover that all my songs are gone, upon this i go to a tracklisting and recieve the notifaction "bad track" and am not able to exit this screen, turn off the mp3 player or access the folder for the mp3 via the computer. It is basically frozen, any suggestions?
Re: "Bad Track" error, though not able to turn off, or...
I encountered the same problem with my Sansa mp3 player. To fix it, you'll have to reset your mp3 player, meaning all songs and files will be deleted when you format the mp3 player.
To do so:
Connect the mp3 player to your computer
Go to My Computer
Double Click on your mp3 player HD
You'll get a Warning box saying "Formatting Will Erase ALL data on the device. This may include any settings stored on the device. To Format device, click on OK.
Wait until completed with Format
and you are "Bad track" free!
Reload your songs using whatever software you use. I use Windows Media Player and was happy to see the songs I had on my mp3 player. All I had to do was sync them again.
Hope this helps!
I use Windows Media player to sync so I still have that on my playlist.

You should try taking the battery out. if you unscrew the for screws on the back there will be a battery just take that out and put it back in this should delete everything if it doesnt then i dont know. dont worry about takeing it apart your only takeing the back off to where the battery is. just like your cell phone.
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
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.
