The player needs free memory to build its database for playlists to playback.
To free memory on your player:
1. Connect to a computer
2. Save a backup of (preferred all) songs to a location on the computer
3. Delete some files off the player to free at least 30 MB memory in the Sansa Clip
wire it up to a windows pc, treat it like a harddisk, search through the folders for the mp3's you won't to get rid off,delete the files you want from it, like you would from a computer.then copy some mp3's to it, unplug, finished. formatting it might erase some of the software the player needs to run, so you better don't. enjoy your favorite music :-)
If you are using the Sony Sonic Stage software, then it might be
a good idea to just format the MP3 player and start over downloading music to it. You have to use the Sony Sonic Stage software or else it gives you the NO DATA BASE error, even if
you have music on it.
The Database error is generally because the device does not have enough free space to create the database ( or GUI ).
Delete some songs off the device and that should solve it.
You should generally keep 6MB free for every 2 gigs of music.
Please add to the question for additional assistance.
Best of Luck.
