Is it recognized as an external drive named SANSA CLIP?
That's what you want. First, try error-checking. Right-click on SANSA CLIP, Properties, Tools, Error-checking. Sometimes that alone can fix the "Not enough space" glitch.
Otherwise, just right-click and Format: , which will erase your added files.
Unlike formatting your computer hard drive, it will NOT erase the Sansa firmware, which is in a separate hidden partition.
If it's not showing SANSA CLIP, then with the USB cord plugged into your computer and Windows Explorer (Computer or My Computer) open onscreen, try holding down the << or center or >> button while you plug in the micro-USB connector.
That should force it into MSC mode and SANSA CLIP (internal memory) and Removable Disc should pop up in Computer.
Then right-click on SANSA CLIP and do Error-Checking or Format:

Thanks for the very clear instructions. When I click on "format" nothing happens. When I open properties (it recognizes the player as a "sanza clipp"), go to tools, and click on fix errors, that new little window fades a bit as if it is doing something, stays that way for a while, and then disappears, without anything changing in the mp3 player. So no instructions seem to be getting through. I tried your adive on two Windows 7 computers.

Ignore the other post! I clicked on format one last time. I thought nothing happened, went away, came back in fifteen minutes and the formatting window had popped up. It went through its paces, and now the clip is working fine. Thanks so much..

I finally got past this and found a fix. I held down the power button until it got to the message "Refreshing your meida." That task never couldn't complete, so the player stayed on until the battery failed. Then I attached the Clip Player to a USB port on my Windows 7 PC. Amazingly the PC once again recognized it as a valid device, and, from Windows Media Player I was able to reformat it After that it worked normally again.
