Okay here it comes. I'm logged in as root (I know this is not recommended but
it's easier than always type sudo...).
lsusb gives me this (device is unmounted)

mount /dev/sdc1 gives me:
# mount /dev/sdc1
mount: can't find /dev/sdc1 in /etc/fstab or /etc/mtab
# mount -t auto /dev/sdc1 /media/MP3\ Player/
makes a clean mount operation but the "disk full" state is still there!
This is what df gives me:
# df -h /media/MP3\ Player/
Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
/dev/sdc1 243M 241M 2.4M 100% /media/MP3 Player
So it shows that space is used to 100% ... There's not one single file in
Anyway, I'll follow the idea of Bruce Marshall and reformat it in Windows to
see if this would help me too. It's always worth a try...
