I got this solved tonight. I formatted my m250 as a FAT32 partition, filled 2GB with songs, and when I disconnected the player I got this message. I reconnected the m250 to the computer, deleted a 10 MB song, disconnected the m250, and the database was built. Some tips: if setting the switch to hold still leaves you in MTP mode, go into the menus and changed it manually to MSC. Under linux the command to format is mkfs.vfat. If all else fails the m250 can be formatted as FAT16, to be a 512MB device. I had it like this for weeks, but tried again tonight to get back to 2GB, and it worked!

If it''s any consolation, the same thing happened to me after I loaded about 1.6 GB (~250 MB left) of music on my Sansa m250. I tried to delete the required 8MB, but the directory structure got destroyed to the point where my computer wouldn''t recognize the device. I called their technical support and they''re having me send it back to them for a replacement! It''s not you, but the player! I don''t know if there''s anything that can be done from a consumer standpoint.

Link to the English manual:

http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/pdf/retail/Sansa_ug_Eng_m200.pdf

On page 30-31 it explains how to RESET the unit to the factory defaults. I believe that should clear your DB error. let me know, thanks.

Not enough space for Music DB, please free 8 MB


The Sansa m250 requires a separate folder to load your songs to in order to achieve the full 2 GB. Set your USB to MSC. Plug it into your computer. Create a folder TUNES. Then drag and drop your mp3 or wma files to this new folder.

The Music DB refers to the Music Database, or the Artist, Album, and Song info.

The error means your device is too full. It needs some free space on the device to create this information.

Connect your device to the PC and manually delete some files from it in My Computer>Device Name (m240)>MUSIC Folder.

It needs 6MB of free space, so you may need to delete several songs.

Disconnect the device from the PC, it should restart and you should be ok. If the message continues, keep deleting files until its gone,



Best of Luck.

Not enough space for music db


Your device has too much music on it.

You need at least 8MB free in order for it to build the "database".

Connect the device to your computer, delete 10 songs, then re-start the player and you should be back to normal.





Best of Luck.

No files


The device needs at least 8MB to build the Music DB (database or GUI). You need to manually delete some files from the device. You will need to connect it to the PC and open it in My Computer>Device Name>Music Folder. Delete a few songs, disconnect and restart the device. You can add to the question if you need more assistance. Best of Luck.
