M240 without enough space for music DB - Cant delete files.


My mp3 player is the m240, and when I turn on the player it shows me following message: “Not enough space for music DB. Please free 8MB”.

The problem is that when I connect it to my PC all I see are strange characters in the filenames, no folders visible and I cant delete or move any of these supposeed files.

What can I do to make it play again?

Welcome to the forum umatur!

What about formating it? We can open my computer and right-click on the device and select format from the drop down menu.

I was hopping that I could recover it without formating it, because I have another computer that I’ve tried just now and I can see the musics in Media Player and I can delete some. I now have 400Mb free and still have the same error.

Can I format it while in MPT mode? I cant reach the menu to change it to MSC.

yaeh, you can format it in MTP mode. You can through it through my computer or windows media player. check out the how to videosand see what its like.

I still cant format it. What is happening? Is there another way to solve this. What can I do?

probably going to get replaced. Call SanDisk Technical Support 866.SanDisk and verify…
