My sansa keepz bringing up songs as bad tracks or unknowns then doesnt play them
Whenever i put new songs on my sansa, some songs come up as unknown and dont play...while others do play...they are all mp3 formatted so i dont understand why some play and some don't. Then recently almost every other song is coming up as a bad track....when they worked on the player before...and they work fine on the computer. I asked someone close to me, who also has the same player that i do if she was experiencing these problems and she said yes. so i dont know how to fix this....i've tired taking everything off the sansa then putting them back on...but nothing has helped.....maybe you can help...please!!!!!!!
It corrupts the files on your player usually if your very low on space near the limit or if I believe you have it in your pocket against other electronic devices. The solution is to just format your player like would a hard drive or USB key on your computer. After that unplug it from your computer and let it restart then plug it back in and put your songs back on. Basically Sandisk sucks a55 when it comes to mp3 players. Ive had this problem and other problems ALOT. This is the worst piece of crap ever made. ONLY BUY FROM CREATIVE LABS next time.
I'm having this problem too. what i think is happening is you took the song off the player. However, the it is not completly off of the player. i.e. song info still on their. song name, artist, album ect. i just took everything off of my player. it says 1/467 songs on their but all say bad track. thats the problem now about that solution, i'm looking into it. but ya if you have any problems. hit me up at [email protected] or MXRIDER007R on aim.

Mp3 players are programmed to read original & copied songs when you download music into your Mp3. if you copy an original CD (music) to your Mp3, the songs will be displayed along with all the infos of that song, i.e. artist, track #, year,etc. if you copy a CD which contains copied songs from other originals, it will display "UNKNOWN" because original CD's have their own trademarks that distinguishes them from copied CD's or any other CD for that matter...
Delete songs and Format (Helps with try to delete BAD TRACKS and folders that will not delete Labeling Unknown Songs: open Windows Media Player and go to library click on artist. The sub folders will be named by the artists and the unknown songs will be in the sub that say's unknown. Click on unknown then right click on the title bar put a check next to artist and album artist. Right click song under artist or album artist or both and type in the name of the artist etc.... This change in your computers Music folders also then sync with your sansa or media player then load songs to it........
Check if the size of the disk is actually what they say it is because I have seen where 1gb was written on an mp3 player whereas it was stretched, e.g, 128mb might be stretched to 1gb, so whenever you put songs that exceeds 128mb the other ones will not play at all. It has happened to me several times.
open windows media player and goto libary click on album artist. The sub folders will be named by the artists and the unknown songs will be in the sub that say's unknown. Click on unknown then right click on the title bar put a check next to artist and album artist. Right click song under artist or album artist or both and type in the name of the artist etc.... then syc with your sansa then load songs to it........
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.
well i had same problem try this
1.take all songs to computer (and pictures ,movies)
2.make sure your computer dont shows hidden(needed files) files.. if you are using xp or vista do this controll panel/folder options
3. delete all music,pictures,movies on your mp3/mp4 ( dont delete any thing other!! )
4.pull the music back to it
/it worked for me well well hopes it works
if you still have the songs on your computer you can format the player it will delete everything but you will be able to put your songs on with no problem. i had that same problem it was showing songs that i deleted from it and not playing songs that we're supposed to be there
