    This happens if u use a china based MP3 player. Use company Mp3 players n avoid china ones as there are many chances of loosing the space.

    May be the rest size has been converted to ext2/ext3 and windows can't detect that partition!
    Try Partition Magic to recover that partition!

    i tried using a lot of partition software like partition manager , swissknife , acronis and many more.
    howeevr none of them could detect more than 245 mb space.
    actually Partiton manager showed 245 mb usable space and 260 mb used space tht was not usable.
