Question about SanDisk Sansa E280 MP3 Player
I have a e280 Sandisk 8gb mp3 player. I have the same problem with the message; "not enough space for music db please free 90mb" and then shuts down. I connect to PC (XP OS) and eventually get two drive letters to appear. Explorer freezes when I click on either drive. I have tried the "hold Rec button with Hold switch in place" solution above but did not get the "welcome to Recovery mode" message to appear. In fact nothing happened any different. I have run chkdsk and it came back with a message that it was a Fat32 disk but then errored out before finishing the chkdsk. I have searched far a wide for a way to restore factory settings but no luck.
THIS WORKED FOR ME: Sync your player to Windows Player - take off a song thats available - delete any one. Unplug and turn on the player - it should now turn on. Take a glance at what USB mode it's set on (under settings). If its the bottom one change it to either auto or the one in the middle. Then plug er in. Should work!

Try buying a 1gb MicroSD card and plugging it into the MicroSD slot on the player. That would give you an additional 1000mb of free space and might stop the "not enough space" error from shuting it down.
