Delete some movies or songs. If that doesn't work, go into setting and format it. (you lose all your data)

When I turn it on it says I need to free 90 mb of space, but even when on the computer i deleted everything on the machine it still said I needed to free space.


the best thing to do is to format the memory with your computer.it is probably filled up with files you cannot see ordinarily so what you do is this
1.connect it to your computer via usb
2.go to my computer and locate the device
3.right-click on the device and select format
4.select quick format and carry out other simple processes
5.click on format
let me know if it still gives you trouble

Not enough space for music db. Please free 6 MB.


If you have formatted there is no music on the player. You will have to re-sync any the music. Set the USB mode to MTP, then Use Windows Media Player 10 or higher to sync player.

I can't turn it on after loading music.


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: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
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.

Sansa C150 No Space for DB. Please free more than 4.0 MB


are you able to format the player while in msc mode?

right-click on it while in my computer and select the format option, make sure your selecting your mp3 as this will delete all the files off the device. It if says failed to format, try doing it thorugh disk management. To get there you can right-click on my computer and select manage from the drop down menu. From here you will see disk management on the left hand side. Then a larger rectangular box with the drive letter that represents your player, you can right click on this and select format.

Or just try a different computer, if its the same everywhere then youll probably have to end up emailing sandisk, stating everything you tried. They will probably ask you to do a couple more things, but if you keep at it, youll end up with an RMA*.

Not enough room for music database please free 4 mb


The device needs at least 4MB of free space.

You need to keep deleting files until there is 4MB less than the total capacity of the device.

Its not syncing because the device is too full.

If removing the 4MB doesnt work. Try formatting the device thru My Computer>Device Name (m200)>Right Click and select FORMAT.



Best of Luck.

I need help with my Sansa Sandisk e250R


To fix it, format your Sansa. I had the exact problem. Plug it in, then in "My Computer" right click its icon and hit format. Do not select quick format. Then it will be fixed.
