I have quite a bit of music loaded on to my player, yet when I turn it on, it says "No Music". I connected it to my pc just to make sure I didn't accidentally delete everything, but, it is all still there. Any ideas??

I have a Motorola Droid, but the same approach is likely to work, since they're both Android 2.0+.
Here's what I do:
1) I rip/store my music using Windows Media Player on my PC.
2) When I'm ready to transfer, I make sure Windows Media Player is open and then I connect my Droid to my PC using the provided USB cable, which happens to be the same cable that connects the phone to the charger. Plugging the phone in like this makes the phone storage visible much like a flash drive.
3a) At this point, Windows Media Player will recognize the storage and you will be able to sync your music library to it.
3b) Alternatively, the phone storage will be accessible via a drive letter. You can put your music files under the Music folder at the top of the "drive." (I prefer 3a, because it organizes the music better.)
I'm not familiar with Macs, so I can only speculate that the same idea should apply. The heart of it is that music goes under the Music directory at the top of the add-on SD memory card. The phone's music player is supposed to find and use all music files anywhere underneath that directory.
Connect your player to your PC USB port using the cable supplied and turn the player on. If the cable is ok and the USB port is working, the player will appear as a removable drive in "My Computer" Copy the mp3 songs you want to upload and paste them into this removable drive.
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?.
What are you using to load music. If you have access to Windows Media Player 11 it is very simple.
First open WMP11, make sure your player is connected to the computer with the USB cable. At the top of WMP11 click Sync
the player will sync with WMP11, drag and drop music and click sync, very simple. I have a Sansa View and it is very simple, This basically works with most MP3 players.
That's a pretty weird problem. The only suggestion I can give you is to check to make sure the music you put on was 1) in mp3 or wav format and 2) if this is music you have purchased, to ensure you have the rights properly set to play the music
The same thing happened to mine a couple of times..
I let the battery run completely down then plugged it into my computer.. after a couple of attempts it seems to recognised the mp3 player, and works at least for a bit after that.
I've now deleted and added quite a few various tracks, and it has been fine for a while now.. so not sure if it might be a corrupt/dodgy file taht I've now deleted or something?
