Question about SanDisk Sansa e250 MP3 Player
My Target Base MP3 player (model: HY816) is coming up with File System Error on its display, and my computer isnt recognising as being formatted, and wont format it. I know something as simple as reinstalling/updating the firmware would solve the problem, but Target was less than helpful in sending me in the wrong direction. Any ideas how to fix this?
Unfortunately, the firmware upgrades will not usually result in reloading all the system files from the original firmware. If your unit was displaying "File system error" right out of the box, then your player was probably previosuly-owned. If it is a new problem, a key system file could have been deleted manually or through a basic incompatibility with Windows Media Player 11. At any rate, you will need to go ahead and replace the player if the firmware upgrade does not resolve the issue. Does target even have a firmware update on their website?

Tips for a great answer:
File system error can appear due to unplugging the MP3 player without disconnecting it. It may have happened due to formatting it with a different file format or due to memory issue with the player. Please reformat your MP3/MP4 player. Connect it to the computer, go to My computer-> right click on the mp3/mp4 player after it is displayed-> select format-> Format it as FAT32 File system. Formatting the MP3/MP4 player will delete all the songs/data from the player. So, backup all data before formatting it. Hope this helps...
