Hi you might need to run a recovery programme or update the firmware to do this then goto the sandisk website and down load the firmware onto your computer or download recovery programme ok
Once you have done this follow these instructions

1 turn mp3 off
2 slide hold/lock to on position
3 press and hold down rec button on left hand side keep held down
4 switch on whilst still holding down rec button on left hand side
5 it should now say recovery mode
once it says this then open the firmware file on your computer and follow instructions also do this if your using the recovery tool from the site.

If you have any problems then let me know ok

The message says it needs 6MB of space for the MUSIC DB ( the database, the artist names, etc).

You need to delete some of the recordings off of your device to free up some space.

You can manually delete the files while connected to your computer from My Computer>Device Name (e280)>MUSIC Folder.




Best of Luck.

Everything is wiped out and so is the radio! Please help !!


The Music DB refers to the information (i.e. - Artist, Album, etc.).

The device need you to free up 6MB so it can create this.

Connect the device to the PC and delete several songs until you have at least 6MB free.

Disconnect it, restart, and youre all set.




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,

My sansa wouldn't work


The device needs 6MB free for each GB of music.

Delete about 10 or 15 songs and you should be all set.

My sansa is messed up


It is referring to the "database", or the menus on the device. (i.e. - songs titles, music, artists) It needs at least 6MB of free space on the device to create this. If you freed up what you think is 6MB, it may not be enough. Even though you have a 2GB player, there is only 1.85 of usable space on it. So try deleting some more tracks. If not, format the device and start over. Right click on the device in My Computer and select format. Best of Luck.
