I believe this should be the manual that your looking for. You may also want to try hooking the MP3 player up to your computer via the usb cable. After doing so, if nothing automatically comes up, you should be able to open the players drive via the my computer option. A lot of times a copy of the manual and the operating software can be found here.

Tips & Warnings
Optionally, you can left-click on a file and drag the file icon to the Recycle Bin. Either way, you can delete music that you don’t want from your Sansa MP3 player.
Unlike other documents and files, once the music file hits the Recycle Bin, it’s gone. Make sure that you are deleting the correct file.
Well formatting IS deleting all the files on your sandisk. I figured that out the first day i had it. So if you're formatting when all your songs are on there, then that's your problem. If not, then i dont know what to tell you.
If you originally used rhapsody (or began in Rhapsody mode) , you have to use rhapsody to remove the songs. If that doesn't work, you can manually open the music folder by enabling "hidden folders" under "tools" -> "folder options..." -> click the "view" tab -> scroll and check "show hidden files and folders". Then go to My Computer -> Sansa e250 -> "system" -> "music" -> then delete the songs. I don't know the effects of using this method, so use it at your own risk.
