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.

My mp3 needs to be reformated and I need to know how to reformat it. Please contact me at jennifermariegordon@gmail.com. Thank you for your help.


To reformat it (assuming you have or have access to a Windows computer) all you must do is plug in the mp3 player to the computer. Go to "My Computer". Right click on your mp3 player and select "Format" or "Reformat". If it asks you what type of partition you should use, choose "FAT32". Most mp3 players use this. If you know for a fact that your mp3 player used a different partition type, choose it. Otherwise, choose FAT32. The computer will do the rest. After reformatting, you may have to download the firmware again. If you can't play songs after reformatting, this is probably why. To get the firmware, try going to the website of the company that manufactures your mp3 player.

Reformat in Windows Media Player instead.
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.
