There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

I have an ipod touch 8gb. Supposed to hold about 2000 songs. Have 1023 songs to load from intunes, but get a message saying I need another 1.72 gb of memory. Do you know what that means?

the 8GB is the total space that is on the iPod. a good portion of this is used by the operating system itself. Another consideration is that most song files average 4MB in size, and this is how they calculate it could hold 2000 songs. There are several variables as to how much media you can fit onto a device, but the bag can only hold so much, you need to take something out to fit more stuff in. See if you have any movies or videos synced, this may be part of the problem. Sounds like you just need to do some cleanup of stuff on your iPod.

I purchased a Coby 4 GB MP3 Player. It stated that it will hold 2000 songs but became full at 500. Did I download incorrectly?

When it says 2000 it means that it can hold 2000 songs, considering that each song is 2 MB. So, 2MB * 2000=4000MB=4GB.
So your songs were much larger than that.

When i turn it on it say not enough space for music DM, please free 90MB. And i had deleted about 5 of my songs and a picture and when i try to put music on there it keep telling me that its not enough...

5 songs at around 3MB each and a picture at about 250KB is a lot less than 90MB. You must delete a lot more. If you don't want to lose the files just burn them to a cd-r before deleting them.

Disk filled while recording/lost audio but says its still there

Often when one runs into the end of a storage medium, it becomes impossible to even transfer data,,, It seems like they often need a little bit of room to handle the headers and stuff.

When doing a recording session, it is often a good plan to have a backup recorder, even a tape unit that you can recover the data form.

I would suggest aa call to the manfacturer to see if they have any suggestion for recovery of your audio.

I would try to save the file, even if it doesn't appear to have audio at this point.

Ilo not working

You need to delete some songs off of there - even though the player advertises X amount of storage space, this number is actually lower because the player needs to use some of that space to process information. Just delete a few songs off of there (3MB worth to be exact), and you should be good to go again.

Can't do anything without message

It has to make a library file of the contents on the player. It uses that file to display the titles and artists when scrolling through the menus and what not. You'll have to format your player in order to clear it up. This will erase everything and then you can put your songs and stuff back on it. Just make sure that when you do you leave at least 4 megs of space for it to make that library file. Here's a link to the manufacturers instructions on how to format the player.

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.
