If the file is corrupted then there is no way for you to play nor listen to it. If the player is saying the file is corrupted and to test if the file is really corrupted please try to do this steps. Connect the player to the computer. Open My Comptuer window and open the player locate the file and try to copy that file to your desktop and play that file. If the file copied and played successfully then that good. If not the only way to prevent this is to format the player. Change the player to MSC mode then connect to the computer and open my computer and right-click on the player and choose format remove the check on the quick format and click start to format the player. Formatting the player will delete all the files and data on the device and it will fix any bad sectors that would cause file corruption on the player.

How to fix a sandisk fat is corrupted please recover fat

You could try the following:

Start with the Clip turned OFF. Slide the power switch down to the HOLD position. Press and HOLD the center button depressed until it is recognized by the PC- give it a few seconds.

The Clip's display will state "connected" with the device now in MSC mode.

You can now repair the File Allocation Table (FAT) using Windows' chkdsk utility.

Open My Computer and find the Clip a listed under "devices with removable storage" as a flash drive. Let's say it displays as E: SANSA CLIP for example. Our assigned drive letter is E:

From the Run box under Start, enter cmd and press Enter. You will get a DOS window.

Enter chkdsk E: /f and press Enter. The /f toggle tells the utility to fix the errors.

After clicking on the Safely Remove icon in the taskbar, or right clicking on the Clip and selecting Eject, unplug the Clip.

Try powering it up again, and see if all is well.

How do I delete songs or bad files? Is there any

The easiest way to delete songs or files on your Sansa is to connect it to your computer, open up "My Computer", double-click on the Sansa, then find the files inside the Sansa and delete them using Windows Explorer. Note that if these files are also on your computer's hard drive, and you're using a syncing tool (such as Windows Media Player) to sync songs from your computer to your Sansa, they may be copied back on your Sansa next time you sync, so you'll need to either delete or move the songs on your computer's hard drive, as well.

Whether you can repair a bad file depends on the contents of the file and the nature of the damage. If you believe that you have MP3s that are corrupted, there are utilities out there which will attempt to fix them. Google for "repair corrupted mp3" (or substitute "mp3" with whatever file type you're trying to repair) to find these utilities.

Message says FAT corrupted

FAT stands for File Allocation Table.  It is basically the table of contents like a book would have.  It tells whatever device is using it where the information is stored on the memory.  If there is nothing on it that you absolutely need saved, I would connect it to a computer and format the card.
