Plug it into a PC and navigate to the mp3 player and delete the song(s) you don't want. For some reason the Sylvania does NOT like certain USB 2.0 ports such as the ones on my VIA-based shuttle, but it works fine with USB 1.1 ports.

SOURCE: SANSA c140 not sychronizing


These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:
If these fail, then:
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.
If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.

SOURCE: Rio Cali Sport MP3 Player

I have the same problem with my Rio Cali and found that there are many out there like us. Looks like we are out of luck because the Rio website is recommending that we buy a new one.

I've performed various formatting procedures with no hope - even tried a low level format and failed.

As of now, you should consider buying a new mp3 player because there is no solution in correcting the problem.

SOURCE: My Insignia Sport Player MP3 says all music is Unknown?

I have the same problem with my RCA it occurs every so often. What I do is delete everything on there by useing he software that came with it and then change the mode from from MTP to MSC and back that way It formats it so Windows Media player( WMP) can see that it is really empty. Then I end the sync with the WMP and start a new sync. after that all I have to do is load the songs back on. This might not work for you since you have a different MP3, but if there is orginal software that came with it use that to delete. If you dont have any orginal software then you can still try to end the sync with WMP and see if that works.

hope this helps

"Not enough free space"

If you delete files on a MAC they are still there. Go to Options or Utilities folder (depending on which OS is running). Use the clean utility to clear the dead files.

I have a thump 512. Want to add music to the 25-5 MB (on average) songs on it in MP3 format, but when i drag new songs to it, it says it has no space left. I deleted a couple of songs, but that didn't

That's because no offence but it has rubbish memory. 25mb is nothing these days. Most songs are 9-15mb themselves these days, and so no wonder you have no space left.

How do i delete music and add a new list?

In order to delete music you need to go on to your computer and use the program given with your music player. When you have connected your player you should be able to delete whatever music you want, including any music list you made. Once you do this yo should be able to start a new list.

Deleteing songs

You can delete them thru My Computer. Double click on the Sansa (m200), inside you will see a Music Folder. Inside is your individual tracks, separated by album names. You can add or delete all music from here. Best of Luck.

Rio CE 2100 : insufficient space to index your content

I would recommend wiping your player:

Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio carbon and click on format.
Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative.
Then click on format.
Then when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded from:
Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player.
When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.

Hope this helps

Insufficient space to index your content

I would suggest going to the rio site, Downloading the latest version of the rio music manager. See if,once the manager is loaded, you can access your music. What OS did you load? Are you using MS indexer or Google?

RIO ce2100

Try this and let me know if it works: Plug the player into the computer (by the USB cable obviously), open your Rio Music Manager, go to "Tools", "Synchronization options". Then create a "synchronization profile" as instructed. As you progress through the instructions, your second preferrence to edit is called "content deletion". This is where you can tell your player to NEVER delete your music. (Choose "never" from the dropdown menu). Then follow the rest of the steps, answering the other questions as you prefer. Hopefully this will prevent your player from losing songs you've already downloaded.
