The songs/videos you tried to load onto the player are probably not the right format. Ir looks like they transfer, but then you cannot play them. For more details on this, read my "Tips and Tricks" at the bottom of my profile on song formats (2-part article)

I erased all the songs off of it.but i cant put mp3 on it cause it still says that its no free space.how do i reset the memory?


Hello,
if your PC can show the removable disk drive you should format it. In this case all the folders and media files will be erased on your player. Then copy the media files to the player.
I hope this action will be enough and the files can get to the memory of it
Bye, gylacz

How do you erase the music library from a MuVo2 FM MP3 player?


Hi,
To delete,Open media player* plug in mp3/4* highlight song/s* right click mouse and choose delete

certain models let you remove songs directly from the mp3 player but some dont if you plug it in to the computer a file in My Computer should show up called removable disk E where you can treat the mp3 player like any other folder if you right click on the icon for a specific song it will delete it from the mp3 player but it wont show up in the recycle bin because it was never actually on the computers hadrive

My Sansa e280 is "recognized" in Windows media player but it shows no files even though it is half full. So I can't delete files from WMP! I can't seem to have any luck in either computer I use and I've...


This player supports two different USB modes. If the songs were added with the other method, you need to use that other method to delete the songs. Read up on it. Common headache, easy solution.

My mp3 player says that the memory is full but I have no songs


if you are deleted the song using computer interface before, it is still on hidden file. plugin your device to computer and go to your sansa directory,
unhide all hidden file and delete it if you are using windows, but for mac pc, just go to the finder then ampty the trash.

Maybe the memory is full.

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Go into my computer, and plug in your mp3 player into the computer. You should see a new button for the mp3 plyr (drive e, i think) click it. U can delete the files form there.
