Sansa mp3 player 8gb won't play my songs. ("bad track" is what it says)
The first about 20 songs on my mp3 player work... but the rest don't. I choose a song, and all i see is "bad track" it flashes in a red box. I've already tried to take all the songs off, then put them back on. But that doesn't seem to work. It worked once, but then I added more songs and it went right back to the whole "bad track" screen. Its frustrating!!!please if anybody has had this problem please give me some answers. Thanks!

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........
You mean it hangs up at pause mode and you can't turn off you device? if so, push up/press power button and hold for 10 to 20 seconds until the device turn off.
Then, turn on. if it' working. You should update new firmware.
Make sure the files are all compatible with the device (probably Mp3 in this case). Check your instruction manual to find out which files will work on the device. Also, try testing the songs on Windows Media Player. If an error message comes up, the mp3 might be corrupt or has an attachment that makes it not able to play.
That means that somewhere in your music collection is a song with bad formatted ID3 tags. You can download an ID3 tag tool like MusicBrainz Picard to go through your songs and determine which tracks might be bad.
i had the same problem on mine but then when I opened the files on the small folder it shows there was this lock icon and then I realized that all the songs that have that lock say bad track. I used a different song download limewire and now all the songs work fine
