Try connecting to the original computer. Try other usb ports. Try connecting to another computer beside the one you use. It should show up as an additional drive.

I would like to know how you can format the memory to eliminate everything. I have connected it to my computer and erased manually all the songs. But when i disconnect it, the songs are still there.

I am not sure how you have tried to erase the songs using your computer, but try erasing the songs this way. -----------------------------------------------------------------------------
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer" When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there. Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible. Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release, right click and then click on "Delete" Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want. Be careful and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thank You

I can't get my music from my computer copied to my element mp3!

download a program called "media monkey" this will automatically load your player with songs to the most efficient use of space. It's a free version that you can upgrade. Just google it.

I want to erase songs my son's songs from my ipod .

Connect the iPod to the computer.
Open up iTunes.
On the left side bar of iTunes, click on the music icon underneath the icon of the mp3 player (if it doesn't show up, you might have iTunes ver. 7 installed, and you would need to upgrade to ver. 8 to resolve).
Left-click a song you want to delete and then right-click the song once - select "Delete"
Repeat procedure with all songs you want to delete.

You may run into trouble later if auto-sync has been set up for a particular folder...rather than go into this lengthy explanation now, just let me know if the songs that you have just deleted re-appear after you recconect the iPod to the computer.

Good luck!

Sansa having problem with sync

Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out:

Orange ilo? WTF

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.
