Question about Coby MPC-848 MP3 Player
O.k. I am really frustrated with this device. I was listening to the music and then decided to turn it off. I turned it back on and it said "No MP3 files". I though I accidentally deleted it, but on the device, I went to About. It said that I have no free space at all and that my device is full.
I plugged it into my computer and the songs are not there and I can not delete anything since there is no music there, but yet it says 0 free space and the device is full. Please help me. If there is no solution, let me know.
One song Too Many, The straw That broke the camels Back :)
You really have to take note, to the Amount of songs that can be Stored On These MP3/4 players.
If the players rating has for instance 20 Songs MP3 Maximum, it,s not going to like 21. Or more.
What happens with these devices, is that they Ocassionally ( Model-Make Depending ) Have a Shared System Memory, which is allocated. There May be 1 Folder, allocated to accept 20 Songs. So if you put the extra 1 Song on, it starts to write the song to The MP Player, but has,nt enough space.
This can cause the ( final straw ) or 1 too many songs to be overwritten to another location. ( X-Box hard-drives are Similar )
1 Drive Partitioned to several allocations. So if you overwrite 1 ( too much data ) it overspills into another section or Partion.
If this happens and it,s overwritten your Boot-sector or Operating System. Then Your player May Be Donald-Ducked.
Your options to recover your player Are Thus:-
1:) Check to see if there any files in the Music Folder, also look at other designated folders, to see exactly where the Overspilled data Has Gone.
2:) Try deleting 1 Or 2 insignificant Files, Not System or Startup Files.
3:) If the Player is recognised as a device F:/G:/H:/I:/ in the My Computer Section Of your PC. Right Click And Re-format. ***Important Back up Or save All files folders First***
4:) Try and obtain A Flash update Or re-flash the Firmware, if your Player supports This.
5:) Keep it as a pretty reminder of what you did Wrong, With This One, And buy another hoping you,ve learned by your mistakes. And you,ll never put the extra 1 Song on again, without deleting 2 songs before-Hand.
