Filled my mp3 player to nearly full, so that not one more song would fit on it, and then i must have accidently pressed the record button. Now when i switch the MP3 player on it says "MEMORY IS FULL,...

since the memory of your mp3 is full, dnt try to record or put any song on it. Except if there's a memory card space for it then you can upgrade and continue to load songs. If u still see memory full warning at start up, then try to delete some songs from it. Goodluck.

Memory on my mp3 is almost full without any songs on it.

Try this: Connect your MP3 player to your computer. Open "My Computer". You should see your MP3 player connected. Right click on it. Click on FORMAT. This should completely wipe everything on your MP3 player (except for the original necessary files that came on it origianlly). You should then be able to get all of your space back.

Be sure your memory card is not full. If full you need to delete the un useful one to free up the memory or you need to replace you memory with higer capacity

My mp3 player says that the memory is full but I have no songs

if you are deleted the song using computer interface before, it is still on hidden file. plugin your device to computer and go to your sansa directory,
unhide all hidden file and delete it if you are using windows, but for mac pc, just go to the finder then ampty the trash.

My mp-c848/256 mb coby player says there is no music on it.

One song Too Many, The straw That broke the camels Back :)
You really have to take note, to the Amount of songs that can be Stored On These MP3/4 players.
If the players rating has for instance 20 Songs MP3 Maximum, it,s not going to like 21. Or more.
What happens with these devices, is that they Ocassionally ( Model-Make Depending ) Have a Shared System Memory, which is allocated. There May be 1 Folder, allocated to accept 20 Songs. So if you put the extra 1 Song on, it starts to write the song to The MP Player, but has,nt enough space.
This can cause the ( final straw ) or 1 too many songs to be overwritten to another location. ( X-Box hard-drives are Similar )
1 Drive Partitioned to several allocations. So if you overwrite 1 ( too much data ) it overspills into another section or Partion.
If this happens and it,s overwritten your Boot-sector or Operating System. Then Your player May Be Donald-Ducked.
Your options to recover your player Are Thus:-
1:) Check to see if there any files in the Music Folder, also look at other designated folders, to see exactly where the Overspilled data Has Gone.
2:) Try deleting 1 Or 2 insignificant Files, Not System or Startup Files.
3:) If the Player is recognised as a device F:/G:/H:/I:/ in the My Computer Section Of your PC. Right Click And Re-format. ***Important Back up Or save All files folders First***
4:) Try and obtain A Flash update Or re-flash the Firmware, if your Player supports This.
5:) Keep it as a pretty reminder of what you did Wrong, With This One, And buy another hoping you,ve learned by your mistakes. And you,ll never put the extra 1 Song on again, without deleting 2 songs before-Hand.
