The best thing to do here is to format this MP3 player using a computer, Just connect the player to your computer via USB and wait for the computer to recognize the device and if its already recognize, double click MYcomputer icon and you should see there the MP3 player , right click on the MP3 player and select Format and that should bring the original size of the MP3....

Hi paulrowley75..Sounds to me like you have to delete some of your files/music/etc off of the MP3 player before you can add more..Follow the directions below for deleting files/pictures/etc.
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
BIG WARNING: DO NOT DELETE THE FILES NEEDED TO OPERATE YOUR MP3 PLAYER.
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
ONE MORE BIG WARNING: BE CAREFUL AND DO NOT DELETE THE FILES NEEDED TO OPERATE YOUR MP3 PLAYER.

Can't Delete Files From Global MP3 Player with Mac OSX


When moving an item to the trash, it actually is just in a hidden ".Trash" folder on that disk, so no space is actually freed up. Can you try hooking the drive back up and then emptying the trash?

Says drive is full with nothing on it.


the driver may need to reinstalled, usually when it said disk space is full is because it is reading it, but the driver is not workng properly or

If you're able to see the drive under your my computers, you should be able to right-click it and click format. That should clear up all the space on the drive, even though there is nothing on there.

Music DB??? clear 6 MB???


Have you tried re-formatting the device?  This will "wipe" memory, getting rid of corrupted files, etc. and should restore use.

Unable to delete files and recover unused space


This actually sounds a lot like the problem pointed out in 'can't delete songs on sansa m230', and I'll bet it's got the same solution (you can read my full explanation there, but I'll just give the gist of it here). The Sansa has two USB settings, 'Auto Detect' and 'MSC'; for some reason songs put on it through MSC aren't visible from the computer if it connects later using 'Auto Detect', and vice-versa. As such, try switching the USB setting from one to the other and see if that helps. If it doesn't then I don't know, but my guess is that it will. ^_^;
