40gb zen xtra nomad jukebox with 30gb instead of 40gb drive
Noticed today that the free space on my mp3 player is ony 12 gb, when I have 15gb of mp3s on it. Anybody know why or have the same thing happen? It did run out of battery a couple of times when I was copying large amounts of music onto it, and non eof the copied music was in the library when i recharged it. Might this be anything to do with it?
