NOT ENOUGH SPACE FOR MUSIC DB

I just bought a used c240 off e-bay for my grandson's birthday and I am getting an error message on the device saying "Not enough space for Music DB. Please free 4 MB.

I am not able to access the devices memory using the keys on the device or by going through the computer. In fact, I can't even turn the device off. I have to remove the battery for that.

Any suggestions (other than don't buy off e-bay anymore)?

If it detects in your computer then you can try formatting it....if not,try sliding the hold key to off position then connecting to PC...it must get detected as a removable disk...format the disk...

Hi,


From the message it is very much clear the your device capacity is almost over. You need to delete some old songs or data. Then only you can copy the new one.

The Music DB refers to the Music Database, or the Artist, Album, and Song info.

The error means your device is too full. It needs some free space on the device to create this information.

Connect your device to the PC and manually delete some files from it in My Computer>Device Name (m240)>MUSIC Folder.

It needs 6MB of free space, so you may need to delete several songs.

Disconnect the device from the PC, it should restart and you should be ok. If the message continues, keep deleting files until its gone,



Best of Luck.

Music DB??? clear 6 MB???


Have you tried re-formatting the device?  This will "wipe" memory, getting rid of corrupted files, etc. and should restore use.

No files


The device needs at least 8MB to build the Music DB (database or GUI). You need to manually delete some files from the device. You will need to connect it to the PC and open it in My Computer>Device Name>Music Folder. Delete a few songs, disconnect and restart the device. You can add to the question if you need more assistance. Best of Luck.

You need to remove some music from the device. It needs at least 6mb to create the database. You can either format the device to remover everything. My Computer, right click on the device and select format. Or, open the device and manually remove a few songs. Restart the device and see if the issue is resolved. If not, you can call Technical Support and they can assist you. 1-866-726-3475 Best of Luck.

Error message: Not enough space for music DB. Please free 4MB.


Hi I have just bought a Sandisk Sansa M250, we loaded som music on it and it lasted 2 hours, then it the message came "Not enough space for music DB please free 8 MB". I couldnt even go in to the menu. I contakted Sandisk.com and 24 hours after they came up with an answer. If it's currently frozen, hold down the power button for 20 seconds in order to soft reset it. Let's try to format the player (THIS WILL ERASE ALL FILES FROM THE PLAYER). Plug it into your computer, then open My Computer, right-click the drive associated with the player, and choose Format. It may give you a choice of file system, if so, choose FAT (it may only let you choose FAT32, which is fine). Now click on Start and it should format the player. If not already done, please also update the firmware from this link: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1368 The 20 seconds on the power button didnt work, but the formation did. Hope this helps. //Cadmann Please bear with my english
