Hello i have a sansa that says bad tracks on almost all my music. it says it randomly to any song. some songs work sometimes and sometimes they get skipped and say bad track. can you help me please.

Your DB might be corrupt. Folow the delete procedure one more time:
Delete Music Files
1) Connect your Sansa to the computer.
2) Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial
3) Select the place where you want to delete music files from
4) Highlight and delete the music file/s or folder from My Computer\Sansa
e200\...\MUSIC folder. (You can also select from a variety of music
software programs to transfer/synchronize your files).
If that fails, go ahead and update the firmware - it will delete everything, and allow you to start over from scratch among other things.
That means that somewhere in your music collection is a song with bad formatted ID3 tags. You can download an ID3 tag tool like MusicBrainz Picard to go through your songs and determine which tracks might be bad.
Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sandisk's website to be on the safe side, but I'm thinking that your song licenses expired. Convert all of your songs to mp3 format, and you will not have these kinds of problems.
The songs are in the wrong format or have expired licenses
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
