Cant delete songs from my sansa, even when its connected to the computer!!! hELP!!!

So here is the problem, when I connect the sansa e280r to the computer, it automatically starts to sync songs from my media library, and some of the songs that I dont want, I try to delete them but there is no way. I even went on the Windows Explorer to see if I can find them, but NOTHING shows up under the device, which is weirding me out. I tried to use Windows Media Player to delete them but couldn't do that either. HELP ME!!!

You'll probably get more replies if you post your question in the Sansa e200 Series forum.  But ...
 
1) How do you try to delete the files?
 
2) If the files are copied using MTP (which they would be if you used Windows Media Player), they won't be visible in Windows Explorer.  You should be able to view them on the Sync tab in WMP, though.

Maybe Try switching to a different mode, sometimes that helps.

In Settings, change the USB Mode or Mode from MTP (or PlaysForSure) to MSC (or Rhapsody).

In My Computer: Tools/Folder Options/View  and check Show hidden files and folders.

Connect the Sansa, Explore in Windows Explorer, look in Music and delete the songs. If they're not in Music, just click around and find them in some other folder. Leave it in MSC and it won't keep trying to sync--you can just drag and drop folders of mp3s into it.
