have 'word' documents on MP3 player, now player wants to be formatted

I have recovery software on an on-line site...files anywhere...If it is not being read correctly, you can download this software by contacting me directly at mewms_14904@verizon.net and I can send you a link, or you can down load a linux distribution called "Puppy" and burn this on a live cd, then boot computer from the cd follow prompts use vesa for vid display, single click on drives, "mount" the usb drive and access the flash drive that way. But easier to just download my recovery software and save all data from usb drive to your hard drive.

Linux can be problematic for the novice.
