Getting "not enough space" message in SanDisk Sansa Clip

I have recently bought SanDisk Sansa Clip and it was having firmware to 01.01.17 and I was not having any problem but then when I loaded some music from the mac then I was getting not enough space" message later when I disconnected the same and when I tried to switch the same then I again got a message saying "Not enough space for Music DB. Please free 200 mb" and it is also not getting recognized by the Mac or Windows, is there any solution that I can try out to get rid of this message??

Just follow the below steps and see if it is helping or not:
First go in to Main Menu and after that just select Settings > System Settings > USB Mode and then set the same to "Auto Detect", "MTP" or "MSC" and then try to connect it to the mac and see if it is getting recognized or not.

Re: Getting "not enough space" message in SanDisk Sansa Clip

If that is not helping then you should try refreshing the driver:
  • First connect the device to the computer and then if you are getting error "USB Device Not Recognized" then there are chances that the player might have failed and I do think that there is a solution to solve this out.
  • If you don?t get that error then go in to the device manager and then in the right pane will be shown as ?USB Mass Storage? if you have set it to MSC and it will be listed as Portable Device if you have se it to MTP.
  • So if there is a yellow exclamation and so then just right click on the same and then select the uinstall option and then at the Top just click on the ?Action? and then select the ?Scan for hardware changes.? And then install the driver for the same.
  • Once you are done with the above solution then just reboot the machine and then connect the player again and see if it is getting detected or not.

Re: Getting "not enough space" message in SanDisk Sansa Clip

I am having the similar issue but then not exactly the same, actually my player is getting recognized without any issues but then the tracks are not visible and because of this I am not able to find out a way to delete the files and get rid of this message, is there any solution that I can try out to solve this issue??

I think even you should try to connect it to the MSC mode and see if it is helping you out or not, in order to do the same just try out the below method:
  • First just change the power button switch to HOLD position
  • After that just hold the center button as well and then connect it to pc using the usb cable
  • Once it is getting connected well then you will be getting a new drive letter in Windows Explorer
After that just make sure that there are not hidden folders and so and after that just go to the music folder and delete files and see if you are getting the same message of the problem is solved, also make sure that you update the firmware as well because only then you will be allowed to change modes in the settings area for either mtp or msc, just check it out and then let me know.

I think that the best solution here will be just formatting the player, actually I had the same problem previously and just backing it up and then reformatting it had solved the issue at once, I think that you should try out the same. Best of luck.

Re: Getting "not enough space" message in SanDisk Sansa Clip

I have checked out for the same and I have found that this error occurs because of the below things:
  • Capacity issue- where you will have to delete the files and free space from the database.
  • FAT corruption in Data Partition- where you will have to format the drive.
Just check it out and see what possible solution you need to try out.
