Re: No enough memory

It simply is saying you put to many songs on the mp3 player and you need to delete some by connecting it to the computer and delete them, one way to stop this it to upgrade and get a bigger memory stick.

Hello, the problem that I have with my SanDisk 2 GB MP3 player is that now, whenever I try to put songs on it, I get a message that "the device has stopped responding" or "the device does...

Try and reset the player first, If this does not fix the problem, Click this link to down load the Sandisk updater program to run a firmware update...Updater... Resetting the device: 1. Press and hold the Power/Menu button for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power/Menu button. 3. Press the Power/Menu button again to turn on the player.
Next time you need to delete files heres how. --
There are two ways to delete files on your Sansa player. You can delete them from the player directly or using a PC.
METHOD 1 - Delete files directly on the device 1. In playback mode, press the Submenu button. 2. Select Delete.
METHOD 2 - Delete files using a PC For all other Sansa players: 1. Connect your device to the PC. 2. Select Open device to view files using Windows Explorer on initial connection. 3. Locate the folder where your files are stored. 4. Click to select the files you want deleted and delete the files.
NOTE: If songs still exist after deleting, you may need to switch USB modes from MTP to MSC or vice versa. See this tip HERE
Capacity issue This error occurs when a Sansa player is almost filled to capacity. A Sansa player can NOT be filled to full capacity. (i.e. you can't put 2GB worth of songs into a 2GB player)
The player needs the extra capacity to create and maintain a "database", a database holds all the information such as playlists, recordings, song information, etc. The larger the amount of songs, the larger the database gets.
To resolve this capacity issue, you have to delete contents on your Sansa player using a PC.
STEP 1 - Delete files on your player 1. See first note on how to delete files on your Sansa player using a PC.
FAT corruption This error also occurs when there's a file system corruption in your Sansa player.
To resolve this issue, run error-checking to fix errors in your device using a PC
STEP 1 - Connect the Sansa player to the PC in MSC mode
STEP 2 - Run Error-checking to check and fix errors 1. Double-click on My Computer (Computer for Windows Vista). 2. Right-click on the drive letter associated with your Sansa player and select Properties. 3. Click the Tools tab and select Check Now. 4. Click both check boxes under Check disk options. 5. Click Start
If an error occurs while plugging in the player to the PC and some files are missing in the player, the database might be corrupted. To resolve this, you will need to format your player.
NOTE: Formatting will delete all files in the device. Your data (music, photos etc) is NOT recoverable.

How do I delete 30mbs from my sansa clip the message is: not enough space for music DB. Please free 30mbs


The player needs free memory to build its database for playlists to playback.

To free memory on your player:
1. Connect to a computer
2. Save a backup of (preferred all) songs to a location on the computer
3. Delete some files off the player to free at least 30 MB memory in the Sansa Clip

Use the manual for how to connect and delete music files.

Deleting songs on player e250R

Step One
Connect the USB cable to your Sansa MP3 player, then hook the other end to a free USB port on your computer.

Step Two
Give the computer time to recognize the Sansa MP3 player. Once it has, double-click on the MP3 player’s icon to view the music files stored to memory.

Step Three
Scroll through the list of audio files until you find the ones that you wish to delete from the Sansa MP3 player.

Step Four
Click on single items or click and lasso multiple files.

Step Five
Right-click on the highlighted files to pull down an action list and from there select Delete. The computer will ask if you really want to throw the file away. Select OK.

Step Six
Exit from the window, then disconnect the USB cable from the Sansa MP3 player. The player will automatically turn off. The memory will update the first time you turn the player on after deleting songs.

I hope that helps!!

Used memory i never used

With most MP3 players, some of the memory is used for system files and software. Just delete all the things you done use (i.e. pictures, playlists, Rhapsody Channels) and whatever space you have free is what you have to work with.

If you want more memory, I highly suggest a microSD card

Sansa e130 cant open

On not being able to detect any files when viewing Sansa in windows: try changing the format mode on the Sansa device - on mine I go to Settings and then USB and then changed it to MSC. I was then able to see the files in Windows and delete a bunch of them and then resynch in Windows Media Player.
