Question about SanDisk Sansa e260 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Songs can't be deleted or added.

There are five folders within the music folder which can not be removed. I can't delete the folders and I can't add any more music. I have tried formatting but it doesn't let me. Is there something wrong with my player or can I fix this?

The folders might be a "read only" folder, so you have to right click on the five folders and then click the green square that marks read only.

Itunes file twice the size as library

when you add music to your itunes library, it copies them to the itunes music folder for itunes to manage it or itunes has every song twice in its library, to check whether itunes has not copied your music twice, view your music in LIST VIEW in itunes and if you see some songs has been copied twice delete on of them.
You can also delete the songs on your music folder to save disk space or you can leave them if you use another music player other than itunes.
But I think you should delete the files in your music folder.

In Windows Media Player 11, duplicate entries on playlists

If you go into the "add new tracks" settings and make sure that MP11 is not looking at folders you don't want it too, I.E. backup folders on an external HDD. You have to remove the files manually or, as I did, rename or move the folder(s) with the duplicates in and when MP11 tries to play them and can't find them you can set it to delete from library automaticaly.

I was given an Ipod 4gb 2nd gen. and I have I-tunes on my computer; there are over five hundred songs on this device, but none of the files show up on my computer anywhere. i can listen to the songs but...

the only way to get the songs of to save then is to use a program to rip the songs from you ipod to your computer such as CopyTransSuite
as for adding and deleting songs, whe the ipod mounts on itunes uncheck the automatically sync music button and you can ckick the music folder and delete by right clicking and delete
if the songs are in someone elses library, if you sync your ipod to your computer the songs will be deleted.
use caution...
hope this helps

Make sure you have it in MSC usb mode

ITunes

Why does iTunes Duplicate Songs When Importing The issue that iTunes duplicates songs when importing is quite common and many users are not clear on the reasons for it. In order to clear up this confusion for iTunes users, here are some main causes of this trouble.
1. When you find your iTunes duplicates songs when importing to the library, it may result from improper settings of your program. You may have checked the options of "Keep iTunes media folder organized" and "Copy files to iTunes Media folder when adding to library". Thus, iTunes will repeatedly import a folder that is outside that iTunes Media folder into the library.
2. If the folder you add to iTunes library already has several duplicated songs, iTunes will import in all of them. Thus, you will find them duplicated in iTunes library.
3. If the songs you add to iTunes are untagged, iTunes will organize them all into "Unknown Artist/Unknown Album" and set the music name to "Filename". You will be unable to identify the song you need, for their name are almost the same.
4. iTunes does not have the feature to monitor your media folders when you import songs to the library. It just has trouble in detecting what is already on the library. This is one disadvantage of using iTunes itself to import songs.

Remove Duplicates after Importing with iTunes

Apart from avoiding duplicates before and in the process of importing, you can also use iTunes to remove duplicates after the importing. This aim can be achieved simply with the following steps.
1. Run iTunes on your computer and then click on "File" menu in the toolbar. Then you need to hit on "Library> Show Duplicate Items" in order.

2. You will see a list of all duplicates displayed in the right part of the iTunes screen. You can then click on a track or hold down the "Ctrl" key while hitting on multiple tracks to choose them.
3. When you have selected the items, you can click on "Song> Delete from Library" to remove the songs you have selected. The duplicated songs will disappear immediately from the iTunes interface. Thus, your iTunes library will be much clearer.

You should know that iTunes sometimes can confuse different mixes and slight variations shown in different albums. Therefore, you'd better make sure what you are removing is actually a duplicated and not a remix or version from a different album.

When i connect to the computer, i can add songs, but the songs on it dont show up

I don't know if you've inadvertently deleted the music folder, but that's what I did, when I deleted all the folders by mistake, thank heavens for in-store warrenty, they replaced it with another one. What I noticed on my replacement is synchronizing with media player doesn't work, it creates ghost folders and thinks music is there when it isn't, I don't understand it. Solution: open two windows for my music and sansa e280 music, then just drag and drop the folders; what I noticed is that in my music the folders are named by artist, and I prefer to see them by album, but when I view them in the player, I see the albums with the tracks in the right order.

I can't remove songs with WMP

You have to first change the USB mode on the player to MTP (as opposed to MSC). Forget using the Windows Media Player (yeah, I know). Go to Explorer, go to drive E or whatever your Sansa is listed as....open it and it will show different types of folders. Go to MUSIC folder. The songs are listed and you can delete, e.g. delete mp3 and keep WMA of the same song, or whatever else you want to delete.
