Sansa clip mp3 when switching on show the following message "not enough space for music DB please free 30Mb"


You don't mention what type of PC you manage your clip on .. but if it is a MAC

Plug the Clip in via USB

Click on the Sansa Clip listing on the left
- Not the disk itself, the DEVICE.
Click the 'Partition' tab
Under Volume Scheme, choose '1 Partition'
Click the 'Options...' button
Choose 'Master Boot Record', then click ok
Click the drop down next to 'Format:' and choose "MS-DOS (FAT)"
Click Apply
(Thanks to Pardsbane over at the anythingbutipod forum)

When this is complete, you can eject the disk if needed, and your clip should be back to normal.
You will probaly lose all music files when you do this.. but at least you will have your Clip back to a functioning device

If you have a Windows based PC
I suggest you first have the Sansa Updater installed or become familiar with how to manually update
Plug in the Clip via USB
Go to My computer
Delete one of the music files within the Music Folder
Close all
Test the clip
If this doesn't fix it..

You should reformat the drive
You will lose ALL music audio books stored on the drive
In My Computer Right Clik on the Sansa
Clik Format
Clik OK
When Complete run the Updater
Now try to place a album or song via WMP on the Clip
Test the clip before putting more music on it

Hope this helps

How do i get into the sansa when it says not enough space for db


It happened to me after I formatted my Sansa into a NTFS file system. This is how I solved it:
1) Connect your Sansa to the PC (if the player won't turn on try hold the middle-button while you're connecting it).
2) On My computer right-click the player and choose Format (make sure it's set to FAT32).
3) Now you can turn on your player normally - when you're inside the player menu choose Settings->Format. This will re-create all the player sub folders (music, audiobooks etc).

That's it...
Hope that work for you too... ^_^'

I want to erase every thing off my sansa


Ok, plug it in your computer, open "My Computer," open up your Sansa, open up the file named "Music," select all the files, right click them and click delete. Now go to the Recycling Bin and delete all the music files that were on your Sansa. Sometimes the Sansa doesn't realize that files are gone until you delete them from the Recycling Bin, crazy I know, but it's true.
Hope it helps!

MP3 needs to refresh DataBase?


You have to many songs a sansa e 250 only holds a certain amount of space so your best bet is to buy a memory card or delete songs so you can add new ones.

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.

PLEASE HELP I CAN"T LIVE WITH OUT MY SANSA


"Please free 6MB for music DB" means that there is not enough MEMORY for the MUSIC DataBase. Therefore, you cannot see the music on your device.

To resolve this, you need to delete music until your device is less than 6MB of being full.

Generally 10 to 15 songs should do the trick.




Best of Luck,
