If your MP3 player is generic, you might have what is called a hacked player. These are typically from Asia and have been modified with software to make the players size look bigger than it is. Once you start deleting folders and files, the fix starts to show itself.
How much memory was there originally?
One way to test is to hook it up to your computer and format the player (format it as FAT32) then check on the size displayed.
If it still displays the correct memory capacity, create a new folder on it and try moving some MP3s to it.
Post back if you need any further assistance.

I couldn't delete song files from T.sonic 850. I connect it to my computer thru USB & when i delete the song files, it get duplicated & appear as 0MB. when i play the player, those songs appeared...


I had this exact problem as well. The solution was to allow Windows to "Scan and Repair" the file system. The scan will likely detect all the duplicate 0-byte files created as you tried to delete files, and will remove these. In addition it should resolve the underlying problem such that you can now delete files normally without creating more of these 0-byte duplicates.

The Sharper Image 2GB Mp3 (1612788) Is Not Copying Music Files


The Sharper image 2gb player will only allow 131 entries in the root directory. Create a new folder, just like on your computer, and then add music files to that folder. I have not tested if there is a file limit in a new folder.

RCA Pearl 2GB


Click this link to go to the RCA support page. Under the light bulb, click "For TH1102 click here". This will download the firmware for your Pearl. Plug in your mp3 player and run the file. This will delete any songs or data currently on your mp3 player so back up your songs if you can.

Cannot copy file error


It sounds like your memory card is formatted with a FAT16 filesystem. FAT16 has a limitation where you can only put 255 files in the root directory, no matter how much available space you actually have. Try placing your files in a folder on the card rather than into the root directory.

Error copying file or folder


You can always reformat it. If you plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. Your fixer, Wild2DMaxx

TEAC MP-360-2GB


Does all your 310 files are in root directory? If yes, then this is the problem caouse in specification is written that in root directory have to be no more than 256 files.Try to create sub directories and place files there, anyway when you start the player they are shown on screen continuously, this means that you don't have to navigate trough directories.
