    I deleted all the songs in my sansa and it when I try to record something with it with the Memo/Record button on the side it says it's full.

    I would like to start my sansa from scratch as it was when I first got it. Is there a software out there to do this?

I have removed all music from my gogear vibe 4gb and reset it but it keeps telling me there is no free space

You may have to reformat it again? Or indeed you may have to put the complete software back on it again after a reformat? Try a "restore to factory settings" if available before reformatting. Sometimes if not deleted properly the media can be corrupted and then it must be reformatted again, usually you can hook up USB to the PC and reformat and re-image the software and directory structure all again, then you can put new songs back on it.
Obtain a manual, and use this to assist you they always help. below is a link for your support site and to obtain a manual.

Hey on the Coby MP715.. How do you reformat It... Mine is frozen on Please Wait

You can reformat it by first resetting it then plugging it into your computer. The method of doing this on a PC is to right click the mp3 player under (My) Computer and then choosing reformat... Make sure you backup all your music and the system files first. Good luck!

Why cant i add files or remove from my transcend mp3 player?? computer is hanging if i connect it. and.. it is not getting formatted. files present are not displayed in the player.

It has a virus, could be, try reformatting the mp3 in dos, or better yet windows 98, simply the file system of you mp3 player is corrupted. after reformatting it in DOS mode, you can now reformat it in windows and then load songs.

Ipod frozen

Try cycling the hold button (I know, you've checked it, but sometimes it sticks). Also try charging it. Again, those are "Duh" solutions, but they need to be checked.
If that doesn't work, you'll have to reset it. Press and hold the Play and Menu buttons for about 10 seconds, and it will restart (A little Apple on a gray screen). You may want to plug it into your computer and reformat it (through iTunes) to clear any corrupted files that might cause it to hang.

File Corruption

You can try reformatting your player, which would free up nearly all of your disc space and get rid of any files you don't want. But, remember that the Lyra has system files that it needs in order to run. The reformatting won't get rid of those, and I wouldn't recommend trying to delete them manually. Hope this helps!
