    It displays "No space for DB, please delete more then 4MB" as soon as
    switch on. There were many MP3 files but it is showing no file suddenly
    but FM is working fine.
    When connected to PC it display "MTP
    connected" but not showing any MP3 file through PC. I try to copy some
    files from PC to MP3. The PC copied the data but again when check in
    MP3 there was none.

This method will format it and return the device to original factory settings.

Download this file:

This is the firmware update utility for Sanca c140 (c100 series) devices.

There is a howto.txt file included, follow the instructions.I am posting the instructions here for convenience.


1. Download the attached file and save it on the desktop.
(the player should not be attached to the computer at this point)
2. Double click the file to run it.
3. Accept the license agreement.
4. Remove the battery from the mp3 player.
5. Press and hold the center (select) button and connect it to the computer (keep holding the button, this is the firmware update mode).
6. If the New Hardware Wizard appears (now you can let go of the select button), do the following: (if asked, choose not to connect to the internet for updates), then choose to install the device automatically, then follow the prompts to finish the installation.
7. When the wizard comes up, or when the Update button becomes active (whichever happens first), you may release the select button.
8. Click the Update button, and then click OK to the message that comes up.
9. Wait until the upgrade finishes, then unplug the device.
10. Put the battery back in, and turn on the player.
11. Hopefully the update will be performed, then choose English for the language when prompted.
12. Check if the issue is resolved.

I think your mp3 player is not recognizing the fromat you have filled in your mp3....read the manual and download the suitable format which your mp3 supports. Thanks :)

Problem in reading disk drive.


Don't format your drive when it asks you to. The drive contains software that you need to play music. Just ignore that message from windows then you can add songs to your mp3 player.

You will need to re-fromat it. Yes, it does wipe it clean, but hopefully you have either a backup, or all the song files on your music player ( Jukebox, Windows Media ect...) At this point though, you may be in for re-occuring problems. Good Luck!
