When trying to sync to mp3! "Did not fit on device"
If anyone can help that would be fantastic! I have seen a few other people with similar problems, but I didn't see many solutions?
Here is the problem, basically when im trying to transfer music from windows media via sync to my Sony Mp3 player, I get the message "Did not fit on device" Even though I have lots of space left. I have even tried to delete music etc to make room but still no joy! I really dont have a clue whats going on!!

It may not be anything you are doing wrong. You will have to see how your player is seen buy your computer. Go to your control panel -> System -> device manager --> Look for your player there, does it show up as a Portable Device?NOTE: The player should show up on the Device Manager's right pane as: 1. USB Mass Storage device (if the player is set to MSC) 2. Portable Device (if the player is set to MTP mode.)It should sync with Media player if it shows up as a Portable device - but if it shows up as a Mass storage device all you have to do is drag and drop what you want into the right folder on the player.
I have seen this before, if you turn off the unit while its saving data such as your last position or your last destination, especially if you shut it down while its still navigating. the card data can get corrupted. the only way to fix this is to reload the map data. Fine Digital is out of business so I created a DVD that has the last issue of map data and firmware for these units. you can find this dvd on ebay by searching for finedrive dvd. its way cheaper than what fine digital used to sell upgrade dvds for ( $150)
Most likely a issue in the FAT or similar table. The tables used on the internal memory is allocated only for short files names since most media managers change the file names to fit 8.3 dos. They do this since mp3 and mwa audio files use id tagging. So try renaming your mp3's that its eight letters or numbers then the three letter extension .mp3 = rap0001.mp3
