I added some songs and deleted a few from my Sansa yesterday. When I went to go listen to them, I found that somehow, I had almost like, 5 copies of the Same Artist (like 5 different U2s or Yoko Kannos) and they were scattered throughout my artists. So it threw me off because i couldn't find what I was looking for. Also, an artist had completely disappeared from my artist's list, but i could still find his song if i searched through albums or songs. (They were also not in alphabetical order, which made it harder) And about 3 songs got deleted without me doing anything!
Does anyone know what's going on and how i can fix it?
I have a Sansa e130 and I had the same problem with the duplicates. First save all your music to a folder on your computer & then using the storage manager, check to see if the disc is formatted in Fat. If it is, reformat to fat32. This fixed all the library problems. Good luck.

Re: Wacked out Sansa!
The only thing you can try is to reinstall the latest firmware as this get rid of alot of the problems they was having you might lose all your stuff you have put on their but at least you will get it working properly again ok follow these instructions 1 with mp3 off swith lock/hold button to on position 2 hold down rec button on left hand side keep holding it down 3 now switch mp3 on whilst still holding down rec button 4 it should now say recovery mode dont connect to computer yet but goto sandisk website and download the latest firmware onto your computer then open this file it will then take you through the process of updating the latest firmware ok

You have songs that may be protected or the wrong format for your device. delete the bad song and download another copy from a different source and try it. This is not to uncommon due to different file formats and protection in the song files When you rip songs from another device often some won't load or play in another device especially if they are paid for songs.
Check and see if the songs you put on the mp3 player are a hidden file Connect to your computer open my computer goto tools on the top of the page folder options click on view Here you will see Hidden files and folder click on do not show hidden files and folders and put a check mark on hide ext....and hide protected Hit apply. Delete any songs you put on the player and start over
Make sure the hold switch is not engaged.
Remove the songs from the player and then reload them. If they are froma subscription service, make sure they do not have fixed-term licenses on them. Right-click song --> Properties --> digital rights or media usage rights Use Windows Media Player to view the songs that are stored on your mp3 player - best to view them in the "Sync" tab. Find the song that you want to delete, right-click the song, and select Delete (or left-click and press Delete on your keyboard). Voila!
I bought scan disk mp3 but once i have connected it with my laptop to add new songs , i dont know what happen now it is blank all data is lost i can now only listen radio through it songs are not adding into it. as all dta is lost or formated.
try going to "my computer" then scroll down until you see an icon that says Sansa e250 click on that then search through both files(2 folders should come up one says data and another says media) try finding the source in here
