    To correct this error try the following.

    1. Take out the battery
    2. Blow inside the battery slot
    3. Put the battery back in
    4. Turn the player back on

    Should be fine after this, worked for me. My player is a Curtis 1GB mp3 player. Hope this helps.

    My mp3 player will turn on but then when it's in the loading stage it will say error, back up music and reformat. I've tried saving music to it and I've tried to download music off of it and it won't let me do either. I've only had my mp3 player for 3 months.

Connect the USB, and run chkdsk on the drive and set it up to fix errors. If a file shows up with an error, that is likely the culprit to the problem.
If that doesn't work, try to back everything up and then reformat it (to FAT) and put everything back on.

I agree, taking a poop on it seems effective, it worked for me.

SOURCE: how do i reformat my ilo mp3

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.

Incorrect format


The songs that you loaded onto the player are not in the correct format - iTunes, DRM-encrypt. WMA are not allowed, for instance. Convert everything to mp3 format. It is asking you to reformat the player because it wants you to delete the wrong-formatted songs off the player. I would check your user manual to find the best way to reformat.

In general, though, 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.

Won't format


You can try a factory reset if it's available on the player or try the manufacturers web site as they may well have a formatting programme online and downloadable.

My ilo tells me to reformat it.!? How do I do that?!


Formatting is pretty easy. Go to a computer, plug it in, then right click and it should have an option to format. Unfortunatly, it will delete any saved information on it. Hope it Works
