Try a reset to factory defaults, other then that I can't help as you need to specify the make and model of your MP3 device, a good habit to get into when posting online with any repair or technical issue.

How can i free up 10mb ?


The only way you can free up space o the player is to remove some music on it or better remove all the music first and save it to your computer and then put it back again....

Sansa fuse


See if you can back up your Fuze on your PC (if you haven't already done so) so you don't lose your music.
When your Fuze gives you the "90mb free space" error, you need to do a format of your Fuze as the database that tracks all the music on the Fuze has become corrupt and the Fuze can no longer refresh the database. You will have to format and erase and reload all of your data (music, movies) back onto the Fuze once this is done.
See if doing a reset will power your Fuze on if you still can't get it to turn on. To reset, slide the Power Switch up and hold it for approximately 10 seconds.
(Again this will erase everything, so make sure you have back it up first).
Next, Format the Fuze using the internal function (Settings -> System Settings -> Format -> Yes) and reload your music.

E260 shows 0 MB memory and 0 MB free space after recovery


Look, I think the best thing to do is to return the product. Normally, they gave you a new one. My old one broke with a blank screen. So the bestbuy guy talked to his manager and gave me a new one.

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?


You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

Cant turn on player


Well plug it into the computer right click on the sansa clip and format it if it wont start then restart it by holding powre for about 10 seconds or so. then try to turn it on...if the thing still wont work download jet audio.(http://www.download.com/JetAudio-Basic/3000-2167_4-10783427.html?tag=lst-1)
and once thats done. you should take all your music on the mp3 and put it onto the desktop in a folder named MUSIC then highlight all the music right click should say somthing about jet audio and edit tag with jet audio then delete Tags....i know this will be the crppiest thing to do cause you have to fill in all the info. this also fixes the frozen refreshing database thing. hope it works

Data Refresh


The simple answer is to edit the genre data of your hard rock songs from "Hard Rock" to "HardRock" (remove the space). This sounds stupid but it causes the e280 to freeze during the refresh database phase after writing songs to the device.

I've also noticed that some genres are renamed from what they actually are. Soul, for example, shows up as Punk in the genre list of the e280. Southern Rock displays as Comedy. Mine has version 3.01.11 firmware. I renamed "Soul" to "Soul-" to get rid of the Punk tag, and "Southern Rock" to "SouthernRock" to get rid of the Comedy tag. "Ballad" shows up as "unknown" so I change it to "SoftRock" to solve that issue.

I haven't tried other genres so if you don't have any hard rock songs on your player, try renaming the genres tags to something else to see if it solves your problem.

Very weird...


'Refresh Database' doesn't mean everything is erased. It only means it's writing the progress that you made, onto the computer. It stays on 'Refresh Database' for about maybe 5-10 minutes. It refreshes its database every time you disconnect your MP3 player from the computer. What it does when you disconnect it from the computer is it saves any unsaved changes made to it and overwrites the memory or data.

Refreshing data base


It refreshes the database to build the menu for you to navigate.

Your device may have corrupt data in it and therefore takes longer than normal to build the library.

You can format the device to remove everything, and then re-transfer them to see if that helps.

To format in My Computer>Device Name (e250)>right Click and select format.





Best of Luck.
