    Hi Guys,
    I recently bought a Creative labs zen micro mp3 player for my dad, this gizmo claims to be able to hold 2000 songs (5gb hdd) however there are 178 songs on it now and it says there's only 10mb space left????..now 179 songs is WAAYYY lower than the 2000 or so creative claims can be stored in this...

    Anyone else experienced this or is it a faulty model maybe.


    cheers

  2. how long are the songs, and how good is the bit rate?

    I don't know if the Zen can do this but did you accidentally store them as .wavs?

    I once had a problem with my Muvo doing this. I formatted it and it started reporting free space accurately again.

    No they were ripped as mp3 (128kbs I think)..even at that bitrate I would've imagined you'd get more than a hundred and something tunes on a 5gb hdd.
