Re: free 4mb of space error , now NO SONGS
Try formatting both the internal memory and the SD card. It's possible that the SD card isn't formatted correctly for the Mix Max to read it. Depending on the size of the card you may need to format it in FAT32 instead of FAT.

if your device tells you that it is a 512Mb that is the total space on the device, if it is telling you 4mb of space it means there is only 4 more mega bytes available for you to store music, information, etc. some songs take up to 9 or 10 Mb so just do your math. and that is the number of songs you can load to your device.
When connected to your computer, go to your My Computer folder, and right click on your Mp3 player. You should see "Format Device". This wipes the entire thing. All music will be gone, but it might reset it.

The memory may be corrupt and it can't read the music files correctly.
Open your My Computer icon and plug the player into your computer. You
should see a new removable disk called Mix Max appear. Right click on
the disk and choose Format from the pop up menu. At the Format window
make sure that the File System is set to FAT32 and click Start. At the
next window click OK to proceed. You'll then need to add the songs back
to your player but it should correct the problem. When adding the songs to the player again make sure that you leave at least 4 megabytes of space available so it can create the library file.
It has to make a library file of the contents on the player. It uses that file to display the titles and artists when scrolling through the menus and what not. You'll have to format your player in order to clear it up. This will erase everything and then you can put your songs and stuff back on it. Just make sure that when you do you leave at least 4 megs of space for it to make that library file. Here's a link to the manufacturers instructions on how to format the player.
I have just bought a Sandisk Sansa M250, we loaded som music on it and it lasted 2 hours, then it the message came "Not enough space for music DB please free 8 MB". I couldnt even go in to the menu. I contakted Sandisk.com and 24 hours after they came up with an answer.
If it's currently frozen, hold down the power button for 20 seconds in order to soft reset it.
Let's try to format the player (THIS WILL ERASE ALL FILES FROM THE PLAYER). Plug it into your computer, then open My Computer, right-click the drive associated with the player, and choose Format. It may give you a choice of file system, if so, choose FAT (it may only let you choose FAT32, which is fine). Now click on Start and it should format the player.
If not already done, please also update the firmware from this link:
The 20 seconds on the power button didnt work, but the formation did.
Hope this helps.
Please bear with my english
