Hi folks. I’ve been using a sansa clip 2G for about 4 months now, and the hard drive size seems to be whittling down bit by bit every time I use it. When I first started using the clip, 1.89G of space were available. One night, while loading a large number of 40M+ files onto the clip I got an error message indicating insufficient space, even though I had used only 1.57 of the available 1.89M. Now, even when the Clip is completely empty windows shows a substantial part of the hard drive as “used space.” An apparently related problem I’ve been having is that the Clip can only handle one mp3 at a time. If I try to load more than one mp3 at one go, there is a good chance that the file names and content get scrambled and I have to start over again.
I wonder whether the hard drive has somehow been corrupted, and whether a reformat would help?
