RECOVERY MODE
Switch your Sansa E260 to its Recovery Mode:

1. Make sure the player is powered off
2. Enable the "Hold" switch (located on the top of the player). You would know it's enabled when you see the "orange-colored" surface
3. Press the "Record" button. Make sure you keep it pressed while pressing on the "Menu" button.
4. keep your fingers pressed on these 2 buttons until the E260 LCD screen displays "Welcome to Recovery Mode"
5. Connect your E260 to your computer. (Just a reminder: The minimum Operating System requirements for a Sansa E200 player is Windows XP and above)
6. Double-click on "My Computer" and you would see your Sansa E260 appear as a "16 MB" drive. Note: If you do not see that "16 MB" drive/partition, please repeat steps 1-6.

Next, Apply the firmware for the E260 (your player should be connected to your PC at this time):

Step 1:
Use this link to download the firmware for your Sansa E260 (for better results, please save this file on your "Desktop":
http://www.sandisk.com/Assets/File/Downl...

Step 2:
Double left-click on the downloaded file, and follow the on-screen prompts. The file will automatically re-flash your player and format it as well, thereby clearing all possible file/system corruptions that may have occurred which caused the player to keep resetting.

Step 3:
When the process is complete, unplug your E260 from your computer, and please make sure you disable the "Hold" switch

Step 4:
Power up your E260 and 90-99% of the time, it would boot up successfully. If not, try to repeat steps 1-4 again.

I hope this helps.

SOURCE: sansa fuze 4GB memory is full

I had this same issue today. I actually followed someone else's post and used my computer to reformat it (right click on it in Windows Explorer, and choose Format). This worked. I just loaded it back up and am good to go. Good luck!

Turn the player off.
Slide HOLD to locked position.
Press and hold |<< while connecting to PC.
Release |<< after the player boots up and says "connected"

Go to MyComputer and find the first of 2 new removable drives (should say something like "SANSA E260" next to it). Make SURE you select your Sansa, not a hard disk on your PC, such as drive C:.

Right-click and choose Format. This will delete all of your files off the player, but will probably get it to be able to restart normally.

Remove the microSD card, then connect the Sansa to your computer. Delete one or more files (music, photos, videos) until you free up the required amount of memory.

Plug the USB cable into your Fuze, but don't connect the other end to your PC yet.

Switch the HOLD switch on (Power button slider down). Press and hold the |<< button while at the same time plugging the USB cable.

You should see your Fuze show up in Windows Explorer (run "My Computer" and you should see it there). Right-click on your Fuze and select Format. Note that this will erase all media on your Fuze, you should have a backup of your media on your PC.

Once the Windows Format is done, go to the Settings menu, then System Settings, then select Format. Select Yes to start formatting.

When i turn my sansa fuze on it says "not enough space for music db please free 90mb"and turns back off..how am i able to get it to wrk again?


Hello,

When the player is rearranging playlists of the music database, it is possible that there's not enough memory left in the player to finish the task.
Connect the player with your computer to delete some files, at least 90 MB, off the Fuze to make it work again.
When not having a backup of the songs, save them onto the computer first.

Here's the support site for Sandisk Sansa Fuze:

My sansa fuze 4 says not enough room for music db please free 90mb what does that mean


There needs to be some space for the part that finds and tracks the songs. There are too many songs/pictures/video on your Sansa. Remove some. Its always good to have some extra space. Don't fill it up completely. Always leave 100megs free when loading the player.

"Not enough space for music DB. Please free 90MB"


What has happened is that when you connected the device to the computer if automatically downloaded everything on your media files thus filling up your MP3 player
You need to go in and delete the files you do not want. click the bottom part of the disk or dial and it will show a menu to delete FIRST,
you must let the battery run down(disconnect the cable and when the battery has discharged, you can plug it back in to recharge, then you can work with it to delete some of those files that are overloading you device This happened to me and this was the only way to unlock it when it locked up

Not enough space for music DB. Please free 90MB


Remove the microSD card and then delete one or more files from the Sansa's internal memory to free up an additional 90MB.
