Reprogram and reformat

the difference between reprogramming and reformatting is that reformatting just erases and restructures the data stored in the mass storage of the device, where your music is stored. And reprogramming changes the actual operating system and software of a device. A standard using will generally only be able to reformat a player, which can usually be done through your personal computer.

Why cant i add files or remove from my transcend mp3 player?? computer is hanging if i connect it. and.. it is not getting formatted. files present are not displayed in the player.

It has a virus, could be, try reformatting the mp3 in dos, or better yet windows 98, simply the file system of you mp3 player is corrupted. after reformatting it in DOS mode, you can now reformat it in windows and then load songs.

Reformatted error

Do your files open when you hook it up to the USB in your computer? If so copy and save them there then try reformatting the player's drive.
If you can't copy the files to your computer, go to, (click on "proceed to site") and pick a file recovery app. Use that to recover your music files to your computer, then try reformatting your mp3 player. If it reformats and works OK you're lucky --if not at least you will have copied your music.

How to format Insignia Pilot 4GB* player?

First, to reformat the player, with the unit off, enable the lock and then plug in the usb cable. The player should show up as a removable drive that you can reformat. Second, the player software is in firmware and is not affected by reformatting.

GPX ML648B mp3 player memory problem

Two Gigs is 2048 Bytes, which is then formatted (Fat32) and loaded with approximately 20 Mb of Software. When you connect it to your computer and view it as a mass storage device, it tells you that there is approx, 1.832 Gb of free space, because that it is how much of the 2 Gigs still free. The software can be downloaded from product support page. the download is 19.3 Mb. That might mean that after you have installed them on your comnputer you could erase them off of the players drive and pick back up most of the shortage. Probabbly when you have to reformat the drive and reload all of your stuff again, you might notice slightly larger usable space. I'm just getting mine loaded now, and haven't had any issues. But the warnings on the sheet that came with it about changing some setting and having to reformat the drive before the player would play again, due to copy writes, and the fact that they include applications for reformatting, and flashing firmware. I Get the feeling that the fix for many of the problems you might encounter is reformatting. Hopefully it is as easy and as fun as it sounds.

reformatting the 1gb or the 2gb disk is a snap, but that won't fix your problem, here's how to reformat then I'll discuss the way to make a 1 or 2 GB work, first with the disk and also the reader that came with the Harley MP3 player just plug it into the usb port on your computer, then click start on the computer, then my computer, now you will see Icons for the A,D,E and F drive, the F drive being your storage device ( sound disk ) right click on this and when the drop down window appears you will see either fat or fat32, most likely it's already set to fat32, if not then change it to fat32, now just click on format, a drop down will tell you that all info on the disk will be lost, click O.K. and it will reformat the card.Now to get your Harley HA90 Road Tech MP3 player to read the card, the player will not read a card that has the soundtracks in a folder so you have to open the folder, I have explained the how to in another post on this site, so to save space try to find it, if you cannot then make a post to let me know

Delete music from pd-6070

The MyMusix device software is buggy and prone to break downs from time to time. Reformatting the device usually fixes these problems. The best way to reformat is to use the manufactures firmware update process.

Go to the website and download and install the firmware upgrade for the PD-6070 player using the download drop-down menu.

Back up all of the songs on your player to your computer hard drive.

Carefully read (or better yet print for future reference) the PD-6070 FAQ instructions for running the firmware upgrade, especially the drop down to select the US version of the firmware.

Run the firmware upgrade. It will reformat your device and restore it to it's original capacity.

You may have to re-format the mp3 player if it does not have a reset button. This unfortunately will erase everything on it. A suggestion would be to move all your files to your computer hard drive and then after reformatting move them back. To reformat connect the mp3 player to the hard drive. Click the right button on the mouse and select format then start.
