    I have a 2GB iLO mp3 player and it says "Flash error! Please backup the data and format the player". Now what I found out about the problem is that you have to backup all of the info. onto the computer and then redo it onto the SD memory card and then you can replace it into the iLO.

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.

    1. Connect the player to the PC using the USB cable.
    2. Open Windows Media Player.
    3. Go to the Sync or Devices tab and delete all content from the player.
    4. Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
    5. Select the Devices tab, highlight the ILO or Siren player and click on Properties.
    6. Uncheck the box "Create Folder Hierarchy on Device"

Iriver mickey mplayer got reformat and it doesnt work anymore


Also the problem is solved by this: 1. Format in Fat by windows, don't use any name for the Mplayer 2. Use programe "Hard disk low level format tool" to format your mplayer (link http://hddguru.com/download/software/HDDGURU-Low-Level-Format-Tool/LLFsetup.2.21.1108.exe) 3.

Boot error and formating


Try formatting it in FAT 32 or FAT 16, the player sometimes can't read a different filesystem.
If that doesn't work, try upgrading the MP3 firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (http://www.rcaaudiovideo.com/)
Follow the steps carefully or you can render your player useless.
After the upgrade, the update program will format the player automatically with the correct filesystem.

Cannot format my MP3 player


I'd suggest to reformat it using FAT filesystem. In linux, type mkdosfs -F32 /dev/sdb1 (or however your device is named)
