Hello. Recently my 4GB Sansa Clip has started flashing the “Not enough space for music DB. Please free 30MB” error. I tried the solution in the FAQ, but my Clip will not boot in MSC mode - when I connect it to the computer, I flip the switch to orange, hold down the center button, then I plug it in, and it says “Not enough space for music DB. Please free 30MB” and shuts off. Same with attempting a reset - it says “Not enough space for music DB. Please free 30MB” and shuts off.
When it’s connected to the computer, it shows up as “E: Removable Disk,” but if I click on it, Explorer freezes and crashes. Right now I’d be happy with formatting it just so I can use it again, but command line crashes when I try to format it that way, and Disk Management freezes until I disconnect the Clip.
