1 Answer

My MR16 says HDD full- so I erased 12 songs and 10 wav files to free up space. No matter how much i erase it still says HDD full when i attempt to record. do i have to initialize and lose everything to free up space or just throw this machine out the window?

I had the same problem. After some reasarch I found out that even if you erase a song the data is still on the recorder in "hidden files".

What you have to do is download the WAV manager software from Fostex.com, then copy all your files to your PC, reformat the hardrive on the Fostex, and copy the song files back on to the Fostex form your PC.

I know it's a pain in the ****, but I guess that's one reason this thing was so inexpensive.
I still am very happy with mine, but after 3 years of constant use in my case, some type of maintenence can be expected to happen.

Given that defragmentation is not possible and wav file creation is not an option due to hdd full warning,I can't save songs. I'm looking at loosing years of irreplaceable work. Please help.


i suggest getting a flash drive for a quick transfer of files to that so you can clear up space or getting an external hard drive to use as mass storage theres also using an online backup such as onedrive dropbox etc

Well i think its software rather than hardware, What program are your using and are your songs mp3, or wma. or wav.

Here is what i suggest
1.) download nero from here http://www.phazeddl.com/ just search nero

2.) install it and folly the instructions to get it activated
3.) Use nero vision express
start / all programs / nero / photo and video / nero vision
4.)create a slive show dvd
5.) drag across your photos
6.) drag across your audio
7.) right click on the time line and set your transitions and time etc. basically set it up how you would like it to look
8.) burn it ( nero vision doest that for you automatically)

its user friendly and self explationary and very very very easy to use and is gurantied to work
NB. for better compatibality convert mp3 files to wav file.
to do this open it in nero wave editor and save it as a wav file

:) cheers

How do I delete old files from my Sansa 8gb? I deleted everything from Windows Madia Player, yet, the device indicates it is more than half full, still. I can't reload the songs I had on it before, but...


When you hace the usb cable connected go to "My Computer or Computer" and you will see it listed as a drive. Click on it and open the folder that has the songs and delete the ones you don't want. DO NOT Format(erase) the entire drive or you will erase the operating system of the Sansa.
Thanks for using FixYa

My Fostex mr8 hdd "full"


If you can reformat the drive after dumping out anything you want saved MIGHT fix the problem...

The unit MAY not be able to tolerate fragmenting when you delete a snippet here and there... It may require large blocks of contiguous space.

most of the memory that is taken up already are files to put your stuff in (movies, music, pics, etc) and the startup files. if you erase the games (which i'm not sure you can) then you will have about 3.7 gb, which is about 10 songs... i've had my ipod for a long time and still havent filled it up with music... and i have a lot of music. trust me, you have plenty of space.

I lost my recovery disks during move now i cannt reboot system theres a problem on hdd it says no room left so now wont let me make any recovery disks yet there is nothing on hdd


Start Internet Explorer.
Click Tools.
Click Internet Options.
Click Delete Temporary Internet Files.
Close Internet Explorer.

Click Start.
Click Run.
Type CMD and press ENTER.
Type CD LOC and press the TAB key and then the ENTER key.
Type CD TEMP and press ENTER.
Type ERASE * and press ENTER.
Type Y to confirm that you want to erase everything in this "temp(orary)" folder.
Type CD \WINDOWS\TEMP and press ENTER.
Type ERASE * and press ENTER.
Type Y to confirm that you want to erase everything in this "temp(orary)" folder.
Type DIR and press ENTER.
You should see something like:

20 File(s) 3,165,781 bytes
20 Dir(s) 1,443,053,568 bytes free

i.e., where 1.4 Gigabytes is enough space to hold about 2 full CD-ROMs of data.

Find a USB memory-stick that is mostly "empty", and connect it,
to create more "available" disk-space, e.g., 1 or 2 or 4 or 8GB more.

Now, try to make the recovery disks.

I cant record


You'll see this message if you try to create a song but there's not enough disk space on the partition to create a song. Free up some disk space and try again. The manual is at http://www.tascam.com/products/dp-01;9,16,33,19.html under resources.

Coppying problems


Note: this method erases all songs - starts you over:
Go ahead and do this, in case the DB is corrupted:
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/Retail/DriverDownloads.aspx

Cannot save music files


look 800mb free space is on the memory card ok

so if you have any files saved in phone memory transfer it to memory card

if you recieve any song from bluetooth the phone memory should be double than the file you are recieving so try the other solution.

i give you a code that will not erase any data *#7780#
