FS#12517 - "Disk full" message, but there IS free space on disc

This happens on my Sansa e280v1 with r31634-120108

I wanted to record something using the inbuilt microphone. The menu "RB Info" tells me there is space on the internal card:


When I start the recording, and then stop it while the WRS screen shows about 50KB, I get the message "Disk is full. Press PREV to continue."

After that, there is no recorded file. (The file should be created in the root directory of the internal card; WRS shows "Filename: /./R_MIC…")

But there IS space on the card! I could copy a file (via USB) of size 100 KB without problems.

So I think something is fishy in the recording code.

Is this somehow related to  FS#7721 ?

IIRC it depends on the chosen encoder and rockbox is making sure there's enough space for XX seconds.

This happens with both MP3 and WAV encoder.

This is probably  FS#12500

Yes, I can confirm that if I set the recording directory to something else than the default ("/") the recorded file is created. It's a pity I didn't know that before and so missed a very interesting moment! :-/

echo "rec path: /" » d:\.rockbox\config.cfg
fixes the problem.

Not so fast Alexander. There is no default in config.cfg. And the default isn't "/". It is "/./," which indeed has no available space, since it isn't a valid directory.

I admit, that with the default being "/" was a speculation of me.
