I can't delete the songs and the computer says my mp3 is "full"

Ok so i tried to delete all the songs from my mp3 player the other day. but 97 songs out of the 120 songs or so are still in the mp3, and whenever i try to delete them from the computer, it doesn't work. then, when i try to add new songs into it, it tells me that i have to delete some un-needed files to get enough memory space to put in the new songs. i don't know what to do. I've never had this problem before.. >_<"

You need to be in MSC mode to do deletion in My Computer; put in MSC mode in the settings menu under USB, then plug in, go to My Computer and open it as a drive, go to Music folder and delete by rightclicking on songs and choosing delete. You can also format the player by rightclicking on the drive letter of the sansa and choosing format. If you are deleting from a program like Rhapsody (ugh) or windows media player, you will get a lot of issues and not all will delete. Stick with My Computer in MSC. Also as a side note, make sure you have all file folders showing including hidden files in the tools menu in My Computer

500 songs, all gone but wont allow other downloads, "too full"


Re: 500 songs, all gone but wont allow other downloads, "to full"

Use settings "format" on mp3 player. This will delete any hidden files. If you download in one format (say like Ubuntu) and delete them under another (say Windows), files can remain in *.trash which is hidden. To avoid this in the future, try deleting with shift+del as it will bypass the trash folder.

Windows mEDIA PLAYER SAYs my sansae260 is full, but device won't sync. It says no song. I tried to reset, but still says no song


change the usb modes also....MSC will allow you to see the expansion card ( 2Gig E200 series 4gig Fuze) mtp won't.....MTP shows you your music folder in the media folder thats where you put your music plus expansion.....
Delete songs and Format (Helps with trying to delete BAD TRACKS and folders that will not delete full memory(Some ripped CD folders).. Go to my computer scroll to sansa or your MP3 player and open the music folder and open each sub folder and delete Songs manually then delete the folders themselves then format a couple of times hope this works

Ok so I have a coby mp3 player and the songs are


Ok there are 2 Solutions that can fix this:

First:

1. Plug the MP3 player into the USB port. Open Windows Media Player, which will recognize that the device is plugged in and register under the "Sync" tab at the top.
2. Click on the "Sync" tab and and the library that is on your MP3 player will be displayed.
3. You can select individual songs or albums for deletion. Simply right click on the song or album to be deleted and scroll down to the "Delete" option.
4. After selecting "Delete," another window will come up which says "Are you sure you want to delete [title of song]?" There are two options at this point--you can delete from the library only or from the library and your computer. Select the one or the other and click
"OK." The song will be deleted. The change will be displayed within the library onscreen.
5. When you unplug the player from the port, the library will adjust the files to reflect the change. The player will say "configuring library" or some other message to that effect. Once this has finished, the main screen will be displayed. Depending on the model of the MP3 player, there may be a message stating "library updated."

Or if that does not work try this:

Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the Coby's website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings.

Deleting songs


Hi the best way to remove songs off mp3 player is connect it to your comp then goto my computer and open up the mp3 file might say removable disk ok select this then it will list all the songs on the mp3 player now if you right click on the songs you want to delete it will delete them.
If you cant use bigpond on your mp3 try limewire this site will give you any song you can think of for free just download them as you would normally then transfer to mp3 if the songs dont play on your mp3 then you need to convert the song format to mp3 just use search engine and type convert music file
This will list all the sites that do this and most of them a free.
Let me know how you get on or if you need further help ok
