Does this player use a removable card or internal storage? If it's removable, then you should be able to use a card reader and reformat it (slow format) to regain your original space. If it's internal, I would suggest getting a trial version of software such as Disk Space Recovery Wizard 6.5 to regain your real estate. Worst case scenario, you have a hacked player and the 4GB you thought you had never existed.

Sounds like you've exceeded your device's storage limits.

If you can hook it up to a computer, go into the device's storage (via a file explorer), delete 5 or 6 MP3 files from the player. They usually average 4 to 5 MB's each. That should give the unit enough free space to start up correctly.

How to record music from the computer with a SA2325 MP3 Player. Send me the steps to follow. Thanks


Hello,
Overview of online support for SA2325/02 ( GB ):
http://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/cpindex.pl?ctn=SA2325/02&slg=en&scy=GB

Link to the user manual:

Music files MP3 or WMA
Music transfer can be made seeing the player as a USB mass storage device in Windows Explorer, exploring the drives on "my computer": the player should show up as a drive letter with about 2 GB of memory.

The files must have the format and extension as shown on page 17 of the manual:
• Compression format: MP3 / mp3 (8-320 kbps
and VBR; Sample rate: 8, 11.025, 16,
22.050, 24, 32, 44.1, 48kHz),
WMA / wma (64-320kbps)
• ID3-tag support: Song title and artist name

Transferring songs from the computer to the player
After exploring the appropriate music files on the computer, the songs can be dragged and dropped to the memory of the player: read the blue
tips on page 11 of the manual.

Always disconnect the player safely after transfers, see point 3.4.1 of the manual on page 11.

-------------------

Audio CD converting to mp3 / wma format: RIPPING
When wanting to convert audio CD's to files that can be played on the player, you could use Windows Media Player 11 or MusicMatch Jukebox using the RIP utility.

  • For WMP 11: update your Windows operating system.
  • When using XP MusicMatch Jukebox 10 can be downloaded from next site:
http://www.soft32.com/Download/Free/MusicMatch_Jukebox/4-277-1.html
Right click on the download file under Soft32 Mirrors and select "Save target as..." Rember the download location for executing the file later, having the MusicMatch Jukebox installed.

My mp3 player won't download my music files


What you should try is backing up your unit, if there are songs from any other source on your player
other than the one main computer you use.

Determine whether the entire load is less than 2 GB and if so, then reformat your MP3 player to make
use of space from songs which, though deleted from your player, (such deletions only decapitate the
file header) still may occupy significant disk space which is at a premium on your player.

Totally reinstall your player and then load your music onto same, leaving some headroom (some portion
of 2 GB i.e. 100 to 500 MB) on your player to allow for streaming of your music, which will enhance your
enjoyment of same.

Memory card


try transfering the songs by copying and pasting into the mp3 player. don't sync the device with your pc , just open as a mass storage device. also you may need to reformat the mp3 player but don't choose the quick format option. even better if you can format through the mp3 players menu. and check the format file systm is ntfs.

Storage Capasity


It's probably just a bug with Windows Media Player. Nothing is wrong with the player. Try using different software to synch the device or just copy and paste your songs onto the mp3 player. They should work as long as they're in MP3 format.

If you don't have them in MP3, then try searching online for a converter

GPX ML648B mp3 player memory problem


Two Gigs is 2048 Bytes, which is then formatted (Fat32) and loaded with approximately 20 Mb of Software. When you connect it to your computer and view it as a mass storage device, it tells you that there is approx, 1.832 Gb of free space, because that it is how much of the 2 Gigs still free. The software can be downloaded from GPX.com product support page. the download is 19.3 Mb. That might mean that after you have installed them on your comnputer you could erase them off of the players drive and pick back up most of the shortage. Probabbly when you have to reformat the drive and reload all of your stuff again, you might notice slightly larger usable space. I'm just getting mine loaded now, and haven't had any issues. But the warnings on the sheet that came with it about changing some setting and having to reformat the drive before the player would play again, due to copy writes, and the fact that they include applications for reformatting, and flashing firmware. I Get the feeling that the fix for many of the problems you might encounter is reformatting. Hopefully it is as easy and as fun as it sounds.

Harley Davidson Road Tech HA90 SD card problem


reformatting the 1gb or the 2gb disk is a snap, but that won't fix your problem, here's how to reformat then I'll discuss the way to make a 1 or 2 GB work, first with the disk and also the reader that came with the Harley MP3 player just plug it into the usb port on your computer, then click start on the computer, then my computer, now you will see Icons for the A,D,E and F drive, the F drive being your storage device ( sound disk ) right click on this and when the drop down window appears you will see either fat or fat32, most likely it's already set to fat32, if not then change it to fat32, now just click on format, a drop down will tell you that all info on the disk will be lost, click O.K. and it will reformat the card.Now to get your Harley HA90 Road Tech MP3 player to read the card, the player will not read a card that has the soundtracks in a folder so you have to open the folder, I have explained the how to in another post on this site, so to save space try to find it, if you cannot then make a post to let me know
