    I have the same problem but when I try to format it it says formating incomplete and when i click to open it it shows the music folder still there. i have tried to delete things from that folder but it says that the folders inside th music folder couldn't be deleted because the device has stopped responding or has been disconnected but it cant be the latter because it hasn't been disconected. Need help any would be nice.

Change the usb mode to MSC so it will show up as a harddrive in My computer, you can now format it and every thing on the device will be deleted so you can now put songs on it and it will work. it worked for me

Bad track


To delete songs from your device follow the steps below
You have to make sure that the device is on MSC mode...then make sure your device is plug in to the computer..Then go to programs - accesories - windows explorer, find the SanDisk in my computer, go to media, music and delete them from there.
Either under sync panel in your windows media player it will show your music when it's connected. just click the plus signs for what song you need to get rid of, right click and click delete.
To format it..on your device..go under..menu, setting and there should be a format option option there..let me know if that doenst work for you...
Hope this helps

Sansa e250 not working properly


The songs you are trying to use are in the wrong format, or have expired licenses - use mp3 format only and you won't have those problems

Bad track error. songs arent deleting after reformatting and resetting multiple amounts of times.


There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

My sansa e250


If you want to delete EVERY track off the player, then reformat the player in Windows Media Player - it's a shortcut - see my "tips and tricks" on formatting mp3 players

If there are artist, album traces, then you need to click on every subfolder under your device in Windows Media Player and delete every trace that way - tedious, but effective

Removing bad tracks


I beleive your player saves a lists as well as the song itself. the easiest way to fix it is to (if possible) use windows explorer, goto your player and look for a folder that says "albums" or "list", scroll thru and delete the folder of the songs that you have deleted.

Bad tracks won't delete


Have you tried updating the firmware. Even if it is the lastest edition, download the firmware manually and run the software. Then format in Windows Media player. Best Regards Keith
