I had a similar problem like this a while back and i did a bit of research into it and i found that using my mp3 player incorrectly can result in Memory loss same with all types of memory.

But one thing that come across strange about this is the amount it says you've lost is a lot.

The thing is this could be because the music type. if you use WMA's which are smaller then MP3's may result in your been able to store the actually amount it says you can store.

If you feel like trying that go a head here's a piece of software you can use to convert your music into all types, but i recommened converting them into WMA's and trying then.

It's only a trial version but it's worth a go.

Good luck. Hope my advice was helpful.

My Sansa Clip 2GB MP3 player won't let me add any more songs to it, even though there's 1.26 GB still available. I don't want to reformat the player, cuz that'll delete the songs I already have on there. ...


Hi there..

When you say having difficulty in adding the songs in CLIP, though you have enough space. I'd kindly request you to check for the number of songs that you have added.

Because when you add as MP3 player by default its bit rate is 128kbps so you can add up to 500 songs only. Kindly have a check on it.

I have given the number of songs that can be added with related to size of MP3 player..

Size of the player :512MB 1GB 2GB 4GB 8GB 16GB 32GB
Number of songs : 125 250 500 1000 2000 4000 8000

Kindly revert if any clarifications....

How many songs can I expect to load on the 2gb Insignia NS-DV2G?


It should be able to collect about 666 songs if the song's size is 3mb.

To calculate it your self; 2gb is the same as 2000mb. So divide 2000 by 4 or 3 depending on the size of the song and this would give you the exact amount.

Take for example, if the songs are 4MB, then you would divide 2000MB(2GB) by 4 which will give you 500. That's it would take 500 songs if the songs are 4MB each.

Take care.

GPX MW3837 Malfunction


Let it recharge for a few hours - when an mp3 player won't turn off, use the reset button instead of letting the power drain down. Actually, i take it back - this is the worst most godawful manual I have ever seen - this is the first Mp3 player I have ever seen without a reset button.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard
