Please Help: Im Desperate!

Recently i purchased a SanDisk c140 mp3 player, it worked fine at first but now when i turn it on it says "no space for DB please delete more than 4.0MB" The thing is there are currently no songs on my mp3, some were on and I deleted them and thats when it started saying that, It wont play any new songs I try to put on it and the old songs that were supposedly deleted wont play either. Please help I had to do 4 straight months of chores to afford this Mp3 and the store wont take it back.

After changing out the battery, i turned it on and

The database seems to be overloaded while rebuilding the files info and playlists.
See the answer for "Not enough space for MusicDB" :

For the c100 series connect the player to the computer how to delete files see:

When linked to the computer there are 2 different connection modes possible:
  • MSC mode seeing the player as a removable disk using Windows Explorer.
  • MTP mode seeing the Sansa player as a Media device using software like Windows Media Player.
For "cleaning up" your database check both lists. How to switch to MSC / MTP mode:

Not enough space for music DB. Please free 90MB

Remove the microSD card and then delete one or more files from the Sansa's internal memory to free up an additional 90MB.

Sansa c140

Download this file:

This is the firmware update utility for Sanca c140 (c100 series) devices.

There is a howto.txt file included, follow the instructions.I am posting the instructions here for convenience.

1. Download the attached file and save it on the desktop.
(the player should not be attached to the computer at this point)
2. Double click the file to run it.
3. Accept the license agreement.
4. Remove the battery from the mp3 player.
5. Press and hold the center (select) button and connect it to the computer (keep holding the button, this is the firmware update mode).
6. If the New Hardware Wizard appears (now you can let go of the select button), do the following: (if asked, choose not to connect to the internet for updates), then choose to install the device automatically, then follow the prompts to finish the installation.
7. When the wizard comes up, or when the Update button becomes active (whichever happens first), you may release the select button.
8. Click the Update button, and then click OK to the message that comes up.
9. Wait until the upgrade finishes, then unplug the device.
10. Put the battery back in, and turn on the player.
11. Hopefully the update will be performed, then choose English for the language when prompted.
12. Check if the issue is resolved.

It froze and deleted all of my songs! HELP!

Dear paige1340, I was surfing the web looking for help with my sandisk c140 and I came across this page. I just had a similar experience with my sandisk c140. Im sorry that this isnt a helpful email, but I was wondering if you figured out how to fix that problem. Then only difference between yours and mine is that mine are gone even when I check with it connected to my computer. I tried to format it but it did not change anything. If you have any suggestion that would be great. My email is below. Brice
