Trouble Reformatting...Please Help...

I tried to reformat my player by going to My Computer>Format like it told me to, but it won't respond at all. I searched and someone else had this problem, but the solution someone gave didn't make sense to me. They said you reformat it through the Music Manager. But how do you reformat it through the Music Manager? I don't see anywhere on it that you can do that..

It seem to be on but dosent show any music

When you plug an mp3 player into a 2nd computer with a different operating system, a reformatting takes place, rendering it unusable on one computer or another without reformatting the player

Danger: reformatting a player will erase all of the songs on that player

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Bad track error. songs arent deleting after reformatting and resetting multiple amounts of times.

There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

Possible Hardware Problem?

Reformat the player and reload the songs. (warning: reformatting erases all songs on the player)

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.

If the reformatting causing any issues, you can always rebuild the original software from Dell's own website:

Try reformatting the device. To do so, go to My Computer. Even if it is corrupt, it should appear there. Right click the drive showing your player and select "Format", "Auto Format", or "Quick Format". If the computer asks you what type partition you want to use, choose FAT 32. You will then need to re-install the firmware. You can get it here:
Make sure to choose the correct version. This will probably be the 1GB version, unless the two others have something different.

My mp3 needs to be reformated and I need to know how to reformat it. Please contact me at Thank you for your help.

To reformat it (assuming you have or have access to a Windows computer) all you must do is plug in the mp3 player to the computer. Go to "My Computer". Right click on your mp3 player and select "Format" or "Reformat". If it asks you what type of partition you should use, choose "FAT32". Most mp3 players use this. If you know for a fact that your mp3 player used a different partition type, choose it. Otherwise, choose FAT32. The computer will do the rest. After reformatting, you may have to download the firmware again. If you can't play songs after reformatting, this is probably why. To get the firmware, try going to the website of the company that manufactures your mp3 player.

Trouble using full 2GB capacity

Have you tried reformatting it? You just plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format. Your fixer, Wild2DMaxx
