I recently reformatted my Sansa m240. I deid it because it had music from another computer on it that I couldn't delete, so I just wiped it. I loaded it up with more music, but now when I turn it on it says "Not Enough Space for Music DB, Please Free up 4 MB," and then reverts to a display that says "No Files." However, when I check how much I have stored on the mp3 player, it says I have 280 MB left.
How do I deal with this bizarre problem so I can use this thing for what it was intended for?

Try putting the player into the other sync mode (MSC or MTP), you probably put your files in one mode and his are in the other mode. Reconnect the computer after changing the mode and see if you can find them. Changing from MSC to MTP is somewhere in the menu, not quite sure on this model, but look around for it.
I had this same problem. What I ended up doing was going into My Computer into the device itself and seeing what showed up. It appears a few new songs I popped on there the day after were appearing but nothing else. I deleted all the files, unplugged it from the computer and let the library update, old songs were still playing. Plugged it back into the machine and voila they showed up.
Please make sure that you have your device on MTP mode (auto detect)..Then the computer should be able to recognize it...To make sure its working correctly uninstall it and reinstall it back from the computer..and that should solve the problem..let me know what the outcome..
Please rate accordingly
Oh lol this is easy. just go onto realplayer or something then go on the tab burn/transfer then it will tell u your songs delete them all. then try turning your mp3 on and going to "settings" then go all the way to the bottom of that page then click "reset all" then go back to windows media player and put your songs on.
Go to Windows Media Player under the Sync tab, over on the far left should be the name of the player, click on it and find the name of the song by album title, artist, or whatever, click on the title and click delete and you should be able to delete any song you like without deleting them all
You can connect the device to your computer and manage it thru "My Computer.
Open My Computer, then open the device (i.e. Sansa m240). Inside there is a Music folder, you can delete them from here. You can also drag songs here to transfer to the player.
If you are not able to see the "music" folder, you may need to enable "Hidden Files and Folders" on your computer.
Best of Luck.
