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.

What does audio file format error means


Hi nancy c...
Your player is telling you that you have the wrong format to play songs on it...you will have to change your file formats of your songs to play on your player.
Here are the formats that your player will play:
Audio: MP3, WMA, ACC, FLAC, WAV
Video: AVI (MPEG-4 / XviD)
Photo: JPG, BMP, GIF
Bud.
You can download a free format converter at this webpage:

Whenever i try to play a song on my phillips gogear vibe mp3 player it sais "file format not supported' and they are mp3 files.What gives?


"File format not supported" means that the song that you've downloaded into your MP3 player is NOT an .MP3 file format. For each MP3 player have their own supported file formats. You need to check the manual of your MP3 player to see what are the supported sound file formats (i.e. .mp3, .wma, .mp4). Then check the file format of the songs that are saved in your player.

If the songs are supported but you're still getting the error message, try to delete all the songs and then download the songs again and save it into your player. If the same problem occur, then it may need a firmware upgrade or reformat.

Thank you and good luck!

Sylvania 4083 mp3 player says ''format error'' when trying to play songs that I downloaded from my computer


Hi,

You must ensure that the files you have downloaded to the player are either MP3 or WMA files. Any other format will not play. To check if the file is in the correct format right click on it and go to properties. It must show as being an MP3 or WMA file.

For a breakdown on transferring files to an MP3 player please view this FixYa Tip.

Hope this helps. If so - your rating to my solution is appreciated.

Format error


Take note that if you have reformatted your drive all file inside were lost. Basically mp3 players can play only mp3 format. If the format of your songs inputted to your mp3 player are not the same with the format required to your player nothing should be happen to play.

If the required of your player is mp3 so you need to put only mp3 format. No other format should be played. If your download songs are wma format convert it to mp3 format.

I have a MP3 GK868A and can't play my songs


The thing is called a MP3 player for a reason. That would be as follows: It IS a MP3 player, not a WMA or WAV player.

I have downloaded the songs onto the MP3 player and when I go to play them it says format error


The songs are in the wrong format. Each mp3 player only plays specific formats. AAC files (iTunes) will not work on many mp3 players besides the iPod. There are two types of WMA files - some players only recognize on of these (DRM-protected or non-DRM-protected) - also check the bit rate. Mp3 files are recognized by most players. If I had the model # and manufacturer of your mp3 player, i could tell you exactly which file types it recognizes.

File format error - Transcend T.sonic 610(1gb)


I had the same problem. I had formatted the player's drive using Windows explorer and the got this error: "File Format error" while trying to play any mp3 file.
I went to the command prompt. Deleted all files:
E:\> del *
Then I copied the MP3 files again in the T.sonic MP3 player. All MP3 files played fine after this.

Format error


It's an unsupported file format. Are you trying to play files that were ripped in I-tunes? I-tunes does not make mp3s, it makes m4a files, which are not supported. Make sure the files you put on this player are mp3 files. You can also use wma files, but you will probably need to use Windows Media Player to transfer those files.

Let me know how you get on & shout if you need more help!

File error


What's the music format of the songs that you placed on your mp3 player? Some MP3 Players only capable of playing song files with .mp3 extension and are incapable of playing other music format like wav, wma, etc. Check also the contents of the player for corrupted files and foreign files. Some viruses from a computer could affect the performance of your mp3 player.
