Title: "Disk is full. Press STOP to continue."

Here is the topic of the problems I have had leading up to this:
http://forums.rockbox.org/index.php?topic=21402.0

Now that's all over, I go to start recording and even before I've started pre-recording I'm getting this message despite the iRiver actually being empty. Also when I go to see my plug-ins it just takes me to the Files screen, but I guess that's not relevant on this forum.

Would just going to Format my iRiver via My Computer and then reinstalling the Bootloader + RockBox be a quick fix for all this or just create more problems?

It's a HP120 btw. (Which is an acronym for By the Way.)

I don't see it hurting anything or causing more problems, you can give a it a try. However that would not be guarenteed to help anything as a permanent fix though but it may help temporarily.

please remember to use real english words, as discribed in the forum rules.

Before resorting to formatting, which is almost certainly not necessary, try these things:

1.  Go to System --> Rockbox Info.  Press the select button.  Rockbox should scan the disk and recalculate how much free space is available.

2.  Check for file system corruption using chkdsk or a similar utility.

According to RockBox info I have 12 gigabytes free but I still get the same message when trying to records.

Format worked, thanks to everyone for the help. VERY much appreciated.
