sandisk mp3 memory loss?

by giventwofly / May 7, 2007 6:46 AM PDT

I have a Sandisk SDMX1 512mb digital audio player. I usually use Windows Media Player to sync my mp3s to the device. It always worked properly, filling it to near capacity. Ever since I upgraded to WMP 11, it has only been filling to roughly 90 to 100 songs in WMA format (should normally hold at least 200 in WMA format). I saw there was a firmware upgrade on the Sandisk website, but that didn't help.

I have had this player for a few years now. Thought about getting a new one, but this one was a gift and would like to hold on to it.

Any suggestions on what I should try to get the player back to filling to capacity?

1 step in the wrong direction.

(an opinion I share with others.)

I use MM and syncs with my e260 with little hassle. If you use wma I believe the default bit rate WMP11 uses is 192.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
