Hey JackStallion,

According to information provided by the manufacturer (Microsoft), you can manually adjust the amount of space assigned to the reserve by accessing your Zune's system settings menu. In order to do so however, you will need to first have the Zune software up and running, and the Zune connected to your computer.

Under the "Settings" tab, you will need to click on the "Device" option, and then on "Reserved Space". In this menu there should be a sliding bar that allows you to increase or decrease the amount of memory assigned to both the reserve (inbox) as well as your own content.

I have provided a link to Microsoft's solution for this problem below, and remember that you can always search Microsoft's support center and knowledge database for more information on changing your Zune's settings.

If you mean what size hard drive, go to system settings then system information. There will be a line that reads NNN GB / NNN GB where NNN is a 2 or 3 digit number. The second number gives you the total available hard drive space. The first number is what you are using of that space.

In my case, the second number reads 232 GB when I actually have a 250 GB hard drive (some space is reserved for the system), so round your second number up to whichever is closest to either 12, 20, 40, 60, 80, 120, 160, 250, 320, 500 and that's your answer.

I think your answer is 120 GB based on your model number.

Hi guys, i have a new WDbluecavier 500Gb,16Mb cache but the allocate space is 467978..so how can locate the remaining space??


This is the real capacity of your 500 GB hard disk - they are measuring it incorrectly for commercial reasons (in reality it's just 488GB) and there is a part that is reserved internally. There is nothing else.

In Zune, you can reduce the amount of "Reserved" space on your phone or media player. The "reserved" for the HD7 locks in space giving you room to download material to your phone.
In Zune, select PHONE>SETTINGS>RESERVED SPACE.
From there you can allocate a percentage of the remaining memory to be "reserved" for use by the phone for downloads.

Dont show the space


While flash drives are advertised with a capacity of 2.00GB or some other rounded size they are never actually this size. Flash memory is cylindrically rounded off, at a smaller size. Also some of the space is reserved for system files and boot sectors. The actual capacity is typically between 80% and 90% of the advertised space.

How do I obtain more storage space on my Zumo 550


I don't believe that there is much else you can do but before i say that try using a 4GB sd card, think they can handle that. These units have a certain amount of memory reserved for system use and they will allow nothing else to use it. In the event that something does use it you get the "not enough memory to run program, Shutting down" error. Always fun

Zune 30 gb space


I'm afraid not, because the zune or any other mp3 player has an operating system which it plays music, if you were to format it would have 30, but DO NOT FORMAT, because if you do, chances are you will lose everything and have to install the operating system for it or send it in to get repaired. I just thought I would let you know that the 1 GB is used for the operating sytem (files, folders, core components)

Hope this helps

Cannot see 4 gb ram


Hi Ciccio8670,

If you are running 32-bit Windows, you must live with it. You will not ever see all 4GB of RAM you've paid for.
If you are running 64-bit Windows, you may have to live with it. Depending on your motherboard's chipset, your system may support memory remapping. If so, you will be able to use all 4GB of RAM.

Detailed:
Due to an architectural decision made long ago, if you have 4GB of physical RAM installed, Windows is only able to report a portion of the physical 4GB of RAM (ranges from ~2.75GB to 3.5GB depending on the devices installed, motherboard's chipset & BIOS). This behavior is due to "memory mapped IO reservations". Those reservations overlay the physical address space and mask out those physical addresses so that they cannot be used for working memory. This is independent of the OS running on the machine. Significant chunks of address space below 4GB (the highest address accessible via 32-bit) get reserved for use by system hardware: • BIOS – including ACPI and legacy video support • PCI bus including bridges etc. • PCI Express support will reserve at least 256MB, up to 768MB depending on graphics card installed memory
What this means is a typical system may see between ~256MB and 1GB of address space below 4GB reserved for hardware use that the OS cannot access. Intel chipset specs are pretty good at explaining what address ranges gets reserved by default and in some cases call out that 1.5GB is always reserved and thus inaccessible to Windows.

Philips SA4010 1 gig really only half a gig!


1 Gb player should have around 894Mb or more of free space. The rest is taken up by the directory and firmware files.

Try running the Device Manager software on the product CD and use the repair option.
