You've got some corrupted files on there causing the error message. Format it.

Turn off the Sansa then hold the center button while connecting it to the computer. The Sansa should now be recognized as a Removable storage device under My Computer/Computer. Right click on it and select Format.

Also, check out this answer from Sandisk's knowledge base.

For future reference,  when you do add music onto your player, always leave some space for the player's database.  A recommended amount is 100mb to 200mb free space.

Can you simply reformat under the player's settings?  Note:  this will delete your content.
