most of the memory that is taken up already are files to put your stuff in (movies, music, pics, etc) and the startup files. if you erase the games (which i'm not sure you can) then you will have about 3.7 gb, which is about 10 songs... i've had my ipod for a long time and still havent filled it up with music... and i have a lot of music. trust me, you have plenty of space.
What you should try is backing up your unit, if there are songs from any other source on your player other than the one main computer you use.
Determine whether the entire load is less than 2 GB and if so, then reformat your MP3 player to make use of space from songs which, though deleted from your player, (such deletions only decapitate the file header) still may occupy significant disk space which is at a premium on your player.
Totally reinstall your player and then load your music onto same, leaving some headroom (some portion of 2 GB i.e. 100 to 500 MB) on your player to allow for streaming of your music, which will enhance your enjoyment of same.
If the memory card is over 2 GB, the player can not read it because it was only designed to read up to a 2 GB memory card. It is not showing up on your player because it is too big for the player to read. If you get a smaller card, it should woork just fine on your player and you should be able to access it easily.
The Sansa m250 requires a separate folder to load your songs to in order to achieve the full 2 GB. Set your USB to MSC. Plug it into your computer. Create a folder TUNES. Then drag and drop your mp3 or wma files to this new folder.
If your device is getting too close to its capacity, it will effect the menu on the device.
You need at least 6-10MB of free space for the "music database".
If thats not it, one or more of your files may be corrupt.
To resolve this, you should format the device to delete all the music, then transfer it back to the player.
To format, right click on the device under My Computer and select format.
Please add to the question if that didnt work.
Best of Luck.
I have just bought a Sandisk Sansa M250, we loaded som music on it and it lasted 2 hours, then it the message came "Not enough space for music DB please free 8 MB". I couldnt even go in to the menu. I contakted Sandisk.com and 24 hours after they came up with an answer.
If it's currently frozen, hold down the power button for 20 seconds in order to soft reset it.
Let's try to format the player (THIS WILL ERASE ALL FILES FROM THE PLAYER). Plug it into your computer, then open My Computer, right-click the drive associated with the player, and choose Format. It may give you a choice of file system, if so, choose FAT (it may only let you choose FAT32, which is fine). Now click on Start and it should format the player.
If not already done, please also update the firmware from this link:
The 20 seconds on the power button didnt work, but the formation did.
Hope this helps.
Please bear with my english
