It means your memory is full. Or you could be downloading to many songs for the device to upload. Try one song at a time.

Sansa clip mp3 when switching on show the following message "not enough space for music DB please free 30Mb"


You don't mention what type of PC you manage your clip on .. but if it is a MAC

Plug the Clip in via USB

Click on the Sansa Clip listing on the left
- Not the disk itself, the DEVICE.
Click the 'Partition' tab
Under Volume Scheme, choose '1 Partition'
Click the 'Options...' button
Choose 'Master Boot Record', then click ok
Click the drop down next to 'Format:' and choose "MS-DOS (FAT)"
Click Apply
(Thanks to Pardsbane over at the anythingbutipod forum)

When this is complete, you can eject the disk if needed, and your clip should be back to normal.
You will probaly lose all music files when you do this.. but at least you will have your Clip back to a functioning device

If you have a Windows based PC
I suggest you first have the Sansa Updater installed or become familiar with how to manually update
Plug in the Clip via USB
Go to My computer
Delete one of the music files within the Music Folder
Close all
Test the clip
If this doesn't fix it..

You should reformat the drive
You will lose ALL music audio books stored on the drive
In My Computer Right Clik on the Sansa
Clik Format
Clik OK
When Complete run the Updater
Now try to place a album or song via WMP on the Clip
Test the clip before putting more music on it

Hope this helps

How do I delete 30mbs from my sansa clip the message is: not enough space for music DB. Please free 30mbs


Hello,

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

Use the manual for how to connect and delete music files.

Not working 1gb sansa clip


What does that mean - "music db" ? I put all of my music on my 1 Gig and it works great. I put all Harry Potters audio books on my 8 GIG and still have 1.5 gig left for music.

Had this same problem. You need to lock turn off the player. put it into the locked mode and hold down the middle button before plugging it in. Then back up and reformat.
