Unused Memory Problem

I had my MP3 player on a trip and it was fine...we went and got dinner so I turned it off and left it in the car. But, when I got back and turned it on it the ilo screen came up and it said "Searching Files 20%" for like a second and then it said "Please leave at least 3MB of memory unused for system usage!" and then it shut off. I kept trying to turn it on and eventually it did, but it said I had "NO FILES" but I could still use the radio on it. It's bee like this for a week, and now it wont even on and say no files, it says the thing about the memory and shuts off.
I' have:

  • Formatted it
  • Defragmented
  • Did "error-checking"
and it still doesnt work. I dont know what else to do. It's driving me insane! I'd really appreciate any help you can offer.

I have a 2012 Hyundai Elantra that I drove this morning and everything was fine. This evening went to go out for dinner, turned the key and nothing, nada. No lights, no click noise, couldn't use my...

Did you check to see if your battery cables are loose? Your battery is only two years old, so I don't think that could be the problem. The cables could have come loose though.

it appears you,ve overloaded it with 1 song too many.
connect to a PC With USB Lead ( If Applicable )
open device usually F:/G:/H:/ open music folder, delete 2-3 songs and reboot.
if this fails, try a reformat on the unit.
check instruction manual prior to all suggestions.

Annoying Memory Problem

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
