Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sansa I have a sandisk model 230 with 512mb. I've tried to delete all files and start ove but I can't do so because Windows Media Player cannot delete the playlist because it contains items that are not digital media files. Any digital media files in the playlist were deleted. I still have about 100 songs i can not delete from my device. I'm not sure what to do. please help thanks.

You can format the device thru My Computer. Right click on the device in My Computer and select Format. This will remove all the media on the device. Best of Luck.

Have a mp3 player, how do I put new music on it?


Use Windows Media Player to transfer songs to your mp3 player
I would highly reccomend watching Microsoft's videos on this subject if you have never done it before
The instructions in these pages, which are largely links, pertain to Windows Media Player 10 and 11 only.

Windows Media Player is made by Microsoft. The general help page for Windows Media Player is:

http://www.microsoft.com/windows/windowsmedia/default.mspx

Through this link, you can enter a variety of search terms that will help you find what you are looking for (exs.: “add files to my mp3 player”; “delete files from my mp3 player,” etc.)

Important Vocabulary:

The code word for “mp3 player” in Windows Media Player is “DEVICE” or “portable device”

The code word for adding files is “SYNC,” “syncing,” or “synchronizing”

The code word for copying files from CD is “RIP,” or “ripping”

The code word for files stored on both My Computer and my Mp3 player (when it is connected to the computer) is “LIBRARY”

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 10:

To add files (SYNC) to your mp3 player using Windows Media Player 11:

My sandisk mp3 player will not delte music


You probably noticed that the directions for deleting in the manual simply don't work, the option isn't there. There are still a couple ways to do it.

Connect the player to your computer, navigate to the device and select the files you wish to delete, then press delete. Somewhat time consuming if you have a lot of files.

Another way is use Windows Media Player to sync the device. Load your library with the files you want on your player, then sync. WMP will delete all files on the player now, and put only the files you have selected on the player.

Problems deleting songs with the help of Media Player...


The manual is fraught with errors on the deleting music page - including the fact that it references p.24, when the answer is on p.23 - but it suggests that you can only delete songs from the player itself or from Windows Explorer:
Delete Song
1. In playback mode, press submenu.
2. Select the Delete Song item.

or p.32 for delteing from Windows Explorer

I can think of at least 2 other reasons why you are not able to delete the songs as normal in Windows Media Player:
The hold or lock switch is engaged on the Sansa


The following is an EXTREME solution that I would not reccomend:
try this fix from Microsoft themselves (it is very lengthy - too long to reproduce in full here:
http://support.microsoft.com/kb/925718/en-us

Short version:
To resolve this problem, clear the Windows Media Player database. To do this, follow these steps: 1. Exit Windows Media Player. 2. For Windows XP:

Click Start, click Run, type %userprofile%\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK.

For Windows Vista:

Click Start, click Run, type %LOCALAPPDATA%\Microsoft\Media Player, and then click OK. 3. Select all the files in the folder, and then click Delete on the File menu.

Note You do not have to delete the folders that are in this folder. 4. Restart Windows Media Player.

Note Windows Media Player automatically rebuilds the database.

No FM & cann't delete files


headphone is the antenna - not particularly strong reception. If your variant of that model was designed for another country, you will not get fm radio.

Delete files using Windows Media Player or the method on p.32 of your manual.

Can't seem to delete the songs


try connecting in MSC mode of the USB settings - then using windows or mac or linux to delete files. In MSC mode the player should be recognised as a bog standard usb storage device. The files are have the hidden attribute set, so you must enable show all files in Windows or you won't see the Music directory they are in.

Mp3 files not being deleted from player


First change the setting of the player to MSC (SETTINGS>USB MODE>MSC) then connect the player to the computer. Open My Computer window and you should see the player right-click on the player and choose format. Click start to continue formatting the player and it should erase all the files in the player. :D
