Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Unable to delete installed music.

How do I delete the music that were on the player, when I bought it? Unlike the E260, it does not give you the option to delete from the device itself.I use Windows Media player to sync the Device. I am unable to extract music that I did not put on the device.

Unable to play music from the music folder on a e260 anymore. rest of the unit works perfect. Is there a software update i can download? install new drivers? or throw it out and get a ipod?


Under the Settings menu, there should be an option that lets you reset the player to factory settings, and/or erase all media on the player. Do that, and then copy all your songs back onto the player.

Transfer only songs that are in Mp3 format using Windows Media Player. The converter program is only for photos and video.

I accidentally deleted my music files from my e260


Unfortunately, once the formatting has completed, the songs cannot be retrieved. Sorry to hear about that.

Deleting songs


I have the e260 4g. To delete songs I use the MSC mode, so I can see the player as a regular windows folder and then select the songs that I want to delete

Just follow the steps as indicated in

Sansa e260 won't let me download certain music


If you used Windows Media Player to "rip" (copy) the music to your computer. The default settings are to "copy protect my music" if you didnt change this setting, the Sansa will want a "license" to go with it. Resolution, change the setting in Windows Media Player, Tools>Options>Rip Music (uncheck copy protect my music). You can also change the default rip setting to Mp3, as opposed to Windows Media Audio. Then you would have to re-rip the tracks to your PC, as unprotected. Make sure you delete the old tracks from the device, otherwise, it will always give you that error message. Best of Luck.
