"NANO FAT Error FAT Formatting"

When ever I try to turn on my player it says this, everyonce in awhile when I try it it will start up with a percentage value in the bottom right hand side of the screen and it will go all the way up to 99% and then stay there. I can't seem to find any software to fix this Please help. Mischke

I finally figured out that when I format my Nano Plus, I have to select "FAT" from the "File System" drop-down list (even though the manual says you can select "FAT 32"). When I selected anything other than "FAT", Windows could not complete the format and the player would not get past the start-up logo.

When turned on the screen displayed FAT is

First try to reset the player 1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly. Next try to switch USB modes 1. Turn the player OFF. 2. Slide the Hold switch down to Lock (orange color showing). 3. Press and hold the center button while connecting the player to the PC. If none of these things work try and format the player - You will lose all your music - sorry -- For your Clip: 1. From the Main Menu, select Settings > Format. 2. Select Yes. You can also format using Media Player -> start Media Player **** If you have Media Player 10 --- Connect the Sansa player to the PC in MTP mode (Previous step USB mode). Click on the Sync tab.( be sure your player shows in the pull down menu) Click the pencil icon on the upper right corner of the window. Click OK to start formatting. ***** Now if you have Media Player 11--- Click the Sync tab. On the left panel, look for the player. It is usually the last device listed. Right-click on the player and select Format Click OK to format.

Formatting problem

Hello Dear

Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

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 (
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.

Won't let me add music

For the Insignia NS-DA1G, NS-DA2G, KIX, NS-DV2G, NS-DV4G:

These units come set to a FAT formatting. If you have changed this to NTFS or DOS, you will cause problems with your player. Be sure it is formatted correctly.

If you have formatted your player to FAT (recommended), FAT-16, or FAT-32, try using the software reset in the MENU - Settings area of the players internal software.
