Re: Unused space on player

Well it's not really a solution, just a work around. I don't know why it does this but if you add a new folder you can load more stuff it that. At least that worked for me. I don't know why you just can't put it all directly on. Pretty stupid.

Are you sure you did not get a 512m player? They all look the same on the outside except for the little sticker...

Cant load music on centon player. Says disk

If your "Hold" button is on, turn it off. The hold button write-protects the USB drive and you cannot add or delete files.

Computer is sayin the mp3 is full but there is nothing on it

Suddenly my centon 4GB wasn't allowing me to add mp3s to it as it said it didn't have any more space but I knew it did because I had just deleted a couple gigs. I figured out that there's an "invisible" recycle folder on the mp3 player that has the files you've deleted still stored in it.

To fix do this:

1. plug your mp3 player into the USB port.

2. Find out the letter of the drive it appears as.
ex. let's say the external drive it appears as is F:\

3. Now go to:

Type in: F:\recycled

4. Click on File on the top toolbar

5. Click Empty Recycle Bin

Your free space on your mp3 player should now successfully be retrieved!

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.

I don't know if this will work for you but make sure that the hold button on the side of the mp3 player is not "on" - you have to slide it off.

Cant figure out how to add music

Hey jankey mp3,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, this MP3 player functions just like a normal USB flash drive. This means that the device should appear in the "My Computer" menu under either "Storage Devices" or "Removable Hardware."

As such, you should be able to use the standard Windows "drag-and-drop" option to load music onto the player. Simply click on the music titles you want to add, drag them over the player, then drop the music files into that folder.

If you would like more information, I would suggest referring to the owner's manual documentation for more detailed instructions or the following Centon website:

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Philips SA4010 1 gig really only half a gig!

1 Gb player should have around 894Mb or more of free space. The rest is taken up by the directory and firmware files.

Try running the Device Manager software on the product CD and use the repair option.
