Sorry for the overly terse answer. No, not all MP3 players have default tracks. As to how to delete them, you'll either have to say what MP3 player you have so that someone who knows it can help you, or maybe Read The Fine Manual. Many (but not all) players once connected to a PC with a cable will show up in Windows Explorer as an extra drive allowing you to find the offending tracks and delete them.

my mp3 is a sansa sandisk e250. when i connect the mp3 player to my PC is shows sansae250 removable disk and another removable drive(g) which it wont let me look in.
In my sansa drive it shows a photo folder, recordings folder and video folder. No music folder.

Perhaps your music directory is hidden. In Windows XP, go to Tools > Folder Options > View and select Show Hidden Files and now look for it. If the hidden directory now shows up, open it and then delete any tracks you don't want.

RTFM is a rather unhelpful abreviation which means Read The F**king Manual...

there is no way to delete tracks from within the actual player.
