Question about Archos Jukebox Recorder MP3 Player

1 Answer

Deleting files I am trying to delete files from my Jukebox Recorder to free up some space on the disk. I have deleted several large folders, and it isn't saying that I have any more space on the disk. This seems like it should be simple. Am I missing something?

Re: deleting files

If you've got it connected to your computer, you can do the same things that you would with any connected hard drive. In this case you should be able to delete files and then empty the recycle bin.

After that, go to My Computer and right click the icon for your Jukebox and select Properties. There you should be able to use Disk Cleanup to purge old system files, etc.

Deleting tracks off 4gb sa2640 gogear

The files are not deleted from the device but moved to the recycle bin. To completely remove the files from the MP3 player, use the following procedure:
1. Open Windows Explorer by double clicking the My Computer icon on your desktop.
2. Click on the Tools menu and select Folder Options.
3. Select the Tab View and check to select the Show hidden Files and Folders option.
4. Navigate to the device. A folder called recycle bin is available. Completely remove this folder from the device.Once the recycle bin folder is removed, the files are completely removed from the device and the free space is available.

"Not enough free space"

If you delete files on a MAC they are still there. Go to Options or Utilities folder (depending on which OS is running). Use the clean utility to clear the dead files.

Not showing folders when conected to television but shows them on pc.

Your partition probably has unallocated space before the main partition (usually a tiny bit like 8mb). This will cause an empty menu. Use mini-tool partition wizard home (free) and delete the partition (backup files first!). Then create a new partition with FAT32 setting and change the 'Partition Align To' setting to 'MB'. This will make sure no unallocated space is created. Apply the settings and your done!. Make sure you DRAG your whole folder onto the drive instead of copy/paste. This will ensure your files are copied in the same order they appear in your folder on the PC. The jukebox is finicky about that.

My sansa clip has maxed out space and won't turn on


Sandisk has an Answers support site for the Sandisk players.
Searching for answers on the item space, links to next page:

The first answer on not enough space for musicDB will give 2 options for deleting files, see next page:

Option 1 for normally erasing files.
Deleting selected files:

Method 1: deleting files on the player itself .

Method 2: deleting files when connected to a computer
when using method 2, switching USB mode from MTP to MSC or vice versa may be needed to see the files in the folders.
Information about the problem "hidden files", see:
How to change the USB mode of the player, see:

Option 2, erasing all files on purpose or when memory is corrupted .
Formatting the device, deleting all files:

This help page shows how to perform a format of the player using
disk management. The player has to be in MSC mode when performing
this action.
How to switch to MSC mode is mentioned before, see link:

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?

Not enough free space

sounds like you are connecting your Archos to either a Mac or a Linux box. When you place items in trash they're actually placed in a hidden .trash folder on the Archos's internal drive and so still take up space.
Start by reconnecting the device to your computer and when it appears on your desktop try emptying your trash can/recycle bin, this will empty all .trash folders including the one on the Archos.
If you're using a Mac you may also want to use a 'clean eject' app such as FinderCleaner to remove all the Apple system files from your Archos. Don't worry the only effect this has is to slow reconnection down by 1 or 2 seconds but it helps prevent problems like this and prevent the device from getting confused by Apple system files.

The Music DB refers to the Music Database, or the Artist, Album, and Song info.

The error means your device is too full. It needs some free space on the device to create this information.

Connect your device to the PC and manually delete some files from it in My Computer>Device Name (m240)>MUSIC Folder.

It needs 6MB of free space, so you may need to delete several songs.

Disconnect the device from the PC, it should restart and you should be ok. If the message continues, keep deleting files until its gone,

Best of Luck.

Can't transfer any more music;only half full

The filesystem has a limit to the number of files that can exist in one directory (around 100). If you are putting all the music in the same directory, the device will appear to be full even though there is a lot of space. The solution is to put your music into folders (per album, or whatever).
