When I try to add songs to it, it says that the file does not fit. There are no songs on it, and it says there is 2MB of space left. The songs I try to put on there have been downloaded as an MP3 first. What can I do to be able to put songs on it?

This is because the songs literally cannot fit onto your player. Songs, like all files, take up a certain amount of digital space. Craig MP4 players generally are small in space, usually ranging from 1-4GBs, which will not get you far if you have a lot of songs. The only real solutions for this without buying a new MP3/MP4 player is to be more selective with the songs you put onto it. There is not a way to change the amount of songs something can hold, so you just have to put less onto it. Also, If you put videos onto it, get rid of those first because videos take up way more space than songs.
If you want more space, I would recommend a 8GB or 16GB music player, those are satisfactory for most people with a lot of songs.
Also, for now you could try downgrading the audio quality, which will reduce the file size, effectively making more songs able to fit onto your player, but I would not recommend this because it does create a noticeably worse audio quality.
Try to format the removable disk drive where your device are connected. The type of format should be FAT, not NTFS. After this you should be able to copy your files back and get correct memory size again.
probably even if its 16GB sometime files goes error. check if it has enough space left to store songs... or try to save all your songs first then format it and the save your songs again try if all the songs will be stored after you format.
I suggest you look at the file format that you are saving your songs as. It might be that you are saving them at too high a quailty than what you need. Have a look at the disc you have done see what the file is and it's size.
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.
I hope this helps
