Re: formatting problem

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.

SOURCE: formatting problem

I don't know why but,I have this problem on my Vista laptop but everything works just fine on my XP PC. I think Sonic stage may have been affected by a Vista update as this only started not to work a week or two ago.

Dropped two days ago, seemed fine. all of a sudden started freaking out. screen looks like TV static, then freezes on start up screen.


I suggest you to backup all the songs in the Walkman Player to the Computer and Format the Player.

Connect the Player to the Computer to charge it until FULL message is displayed.

Reset the Walkman Player. To reset it by pressing the RESET button with a small pin or similar object. You can also Format the Player if the Format option is available by accessing the Home Menu.

To Format the Player; press and hold the BACK/HOME button, select Settings-->Common Settings-->Format-->YES.

WARNING: There is a risk of data loss. If the memory is formatted, all files including the Operation Guide (If applicable to your model) stored in the player will be deleted. Be sure to verify the files stored in memory prior to formatting and export necessary files to the hard disk of your computer or other device.

Once the Format completes, reset the Player by pressing the Reset button located at the bottom of the Player using a sharp pointed object. Now you can transfer the required songs and files to the Player using the supplied Software or by dragging and dropping the songs through Windows Explorer. This will resolve the issue.

Good Luck!

My Transcend T.sonic 610 MP3 Player battery is fine it is 3V but still the system is not switching on. I conncted to my PC things were fine. I had to change the PC so removed the MP3 Player and connected...

To resolve this issue, format the player using the computer. Also scan the player for any viruses using antivirus program. Even after performing the format the issue is not resolved then you would need to press the Reset button to restore it to its default settings. The reset program will erase all of the settings on the T.sonic. The reset button is on the right side of player. Keep that button pressed for at least 5-10 seconds.
Hope this helps...

My Zen will not do anything,it's froze.

If a reset does not work using the reset hole, then try this: First, back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and disconnect it from the computer. Then press and hold the play/puse button and turn it on simultaneously. The player should be in recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format. Then reload all of music back onto your player and it should work like new. Hope this helps!
