When we turn on my daughter's Sandisk Sansa 512mb mp3 player, we get the following message: "Not enough space for music db. Please free 8mb. Then the screen changes to "No Files". I tried the suggestion from another post to re-format on my PC, however, it didn't work. Any other suggestions?? THANKS for any help you can offer, daughter is very frustrated! :)
I had this same problem. I could see the player on my PC when I plugged it in (it took a while to show up, be patient). I tried reformatting and defragging but nothing helped. Finally on a whim I filled the drive up completely with music files filling all space. When I disconnected it, it said 'Update complete' and started working normally. All the files were gone, but I can add, delete, and play music now.

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
whenever i turn on my sansa m230 mp3 player, it displays the message, "not enough space for music DB, please free 8mb." And so i plug it into my friends computer and when i open the music folder on the device, its empty, even though it says that there is quite a bit of space used up. Do you have any answers?.
