Question about SanDisk Sansa m230 MP3 Player
Hi, unfortunately I have acquired a new Sandisk m320 (512MB), I copied some files there, played them, deleted some, added others and it ended up in a very weird state. After deleting all the files, there is no way to copy more that 300 MB of data in there because the disk is full. Apparently there are some files which are not visible but use the remaining 200 MB. If the device had a reset button to delete all the files and left it as it was in the factory I would be able to fully utilize it. I have used any file browser under windows and unix with no success. I have not formatted the device because I'm afraid it will die after. These devices are unreliable, undocumented and lack of good technical support. If only I had known .... Any idea ?
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. ^_^;
