You will need to format your player. Doing this will completely erase any memory on your player. Follow the steps below:

1. Plug the player up to the computer using the USB cable.
2. Double click the My Computer icon on your desktop.
3. When that opens find your player under Removable Devices or Audio Devices. Some computers will show your player twice but will have the SD MMC card showing behind the player name. That is only for formatting the SD card.
4. Right click once on the player to open the Options menu and then click on Format
5. Click OK to any warnings that come up. There may be one or two depending on your operating system.
6. Any memory will now be erased from your player and you can disconnect from the computer.
7. Reboot your computer and plug your player back in.
8. When you see USB appear on your players screen, press and hold the M button until MTP appears on your screen.
9. Reload your music.

How do i remove gpx 3837 from my windows media and format

The songs are not in the right format for your player. I would use DRM-free Mp3 files only, which can be obtained from Limewire, Spiral Frog, or some other music service. Since the transfer did not fully complete, you may have to do additional troubleshooting on your device. Reset your mp3 player first to see if that resolves any lingering issues.

My GPX won't let me take songs off it?

the easiest way to load and unload songs off of it is to go to my computer and look for it in the drives. It should have it own drive letter. When you open it you will see one folder on the drive. Open the folder and there is your music. Now just cut out what you dont want. Or if you want to add other ones just drag and drop them in there.

Write protecion

It says the thing is write-protected when the hold button is turned on. Switch it to "off" and try again.

Write protection

Unfortunately the GPX M2104 manual is not available online(due to large size...), so all I can help with is some advice that might seem like the obvious, or some referals- 1. Make sure the HOLD is in off position. Slide the HOLD switch to the opposite side of the word HOLD. Then connect the player back and try to transfer/add/delete the songs you want. 2. If you have a digital form of the manual(please submit it here) search for "write protect" on it(shift+control+f on adobe), or look in the troubleshooting section which is generaly towards the end of the manual. 3. Try resetting the device. If you don't know how, again - it should be on the manual, and if it isn't then unplugging it and disconnecting it from all power sources for a few days sometimes does the trick. you can also try doing it on another PC, or another OS just to make sure it really is the GPX malfunctioning. Good luck
