Question about Archos Jukebox Recorder MP3 Player

1 Answer

Not enough free space

My Archos Recorder 20 displays the message "Not enough free space on hard drive" - but i have deleted most of the files - so there is plenty of space available. Looks like something won't reset to allow the box to recognise the free space available. Any suggestions?

Sounds like you are connecting your Archos to either a Mac or a Linux box. When you place items in trash they're actually placed in a hidden .trash folder on the Archos's internal drive and so still take up space.
Start by reconnecting the device to your computer and when it appears on your desktop try emptying your trash can/recycle bin, this will empty all .trash folders including the one on the Archos.
If you're using a Mac you may also want to use a 'clean eject' app such as FinderCleaner to remove all the Apple system files from your Archos. Don't worry the only effect this has is to slow reconnection down by 1 or 2 seconds but it helps prevent problems like this and prevent the device from getting confused by Apple system files.

"Not enough free space"


If you delete files on a MAC they are still there. Go to Options or Utilities folder (depending on which OS is running). Use the clean utility to clear the dead files.

Make sure the Archos is set tp 'PC Hard Drive' in the settings.
Plug the Archos into your pc, browse the drive and go into the System folder. All the wallpapers are in there - don't delete any essential files!

The Music DB refers to the Music Database, or the Artist, Album, and Song info.

The error means your device is too full. It needs some free space on the device to create this information.

Connect your device to the PC and manually delete some files from it in My Computer>Device Name (m240)>MUSIC Folder.

It needs 6MB of free space, so you may need to delete several songs.

Disconnect the device from the PC, it should restart and you should be ok. If the message continues, keep deleting files until its gone,



Best of Luck.

Not enough space message, etc.


a small amount of space is used up by the players operating system. a 512mb player will only actually have about 490 mb of usable space. try upgrading the firmware on your player by going to the sandsik website and looking under product support for instructions. Use windows media player to access your device and delete any any duplicate files to free up some more space.

Deleting files


If you've got it connected to your computer, you can do the same things that you would with any connected hard drive. In this case you should be able to delete files and then empty the recycle bin.

After that, go to My Computer and right click the icon for your Jukebox and select Properties. There you should be able to use Disk Cleanup to purge old system files, etc.

Error message: Not enough space for music DB. Please free 4MB.


Hi 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: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/Default.aspx?CatID=1368 The 20 seconds on the power button didnt work, but the formation did. Hope this helps. //Cadmann Please bear with my english
