Re: problems with amount of memory used...

Have you tried to format the device? Because they may be some files on the player that is causing this problem. First back up your files before formatting the player. Change the player to MSC mode(SETTINGS>USB MODE>MSC) to format the device. Then update the firmware of the player and transfer the songs back to the player.

To delete files using your computer,
1. connect your sansa to the computer, open device to view files using windows explorer on inital contact, the place you want music deleted from,
4.highlight and delete the music files or folder (if your lucky),from
My Computer/Sansa e270/Internal Memory/ Music folder!

you can also manually delete files from the device if this does'nt work..........

Memory card

Let me start out by saying you can not have two types of files on the same card. I found that out the hard way, (no mp3 with wma) on this player. And if you have downloaded one type in the one gig. then it has to be the same type on the memory card. Now there is a few ways to download;
1. through your GPX while it is pluged into computer using windows Media.
2. Using slot already in computer if your computer is built with one (mine is) then find the music you have download from CD and just transfer them or as some would say drag and drop.
3. I use Real Play because if you buy if you have the works and it allows you to transfer your music into whatever mode you wish and it will also format your card for your player. Then it allows you to make a list and download. but that is just me.
Let me know if this helps. P.S. I never download on my GPX I just use 2 gig cards. I have everything from audio books to music but I do carry 4 card wallets that hold 25 cards each. I have everything from Harry Potter 1 - 7 to Ozzy to Kenny G. to give you an Idea what it is like when you get a handle on downloading.

4GB micro sd card.

According to what I've read, you can double the original memory, but no more than that, so the max you can have on a Sansa e250 would be 4 GB (2GB internal memory and 2GB external memory). I also read that the micro SD cards holds
music only-no video.

Sansa 280 with 8 gigs

The message says it needs 6MB of space for the MUSIC DB ( the database, the artist names, etc).

You need to delete some of the recordings off of your device to free up some space.

You can manually delete the files while connected to your computer from My Computer>Device Name (e280)>MUSIC Folder.

Best of Luck.
