I have a road tech ha90 digital music player . inserting a sd card with mp3 and wma format music . i get a erro message.

First, many SD storage music players do not support HCSD. Is the SD card bigger than 2gig? This could be the problem. Try a smaller SD card.

My 2Gig Sansa says it is full - and indeed almost the full two gigs are used up, and yet the music folder is not even 1 gig full and all the other folders, even the hidden ones, are empty - 0 bytes. Where...

The Sansa player can hook up to a computer in two different modes. Through normal use it can switch modes on it's own, although rare it can happen. Now stuff added in one mode can not be seen in the other mode and you can not delete the files. So you have MSC mode which means Mass storage class and is the best mode to use. Then MTP mode means Media transfer protocol, you have to use this mode if you use Napster and such to download MP3's with protected content (DRM) you have to set the player to one mode or the other, to see the files and delete the files you want to delete or to find the missing room. MSC makes your player look like a thumb drive, and is easy to use. If you need any more info go to

Memory card in my sandisk mp3 player

The e200 series does not support SDHC cards with stock software. You're stuck using regular 2 gig microSD cards, OR upgrading to Rockbox software, which DOES support the SDHC cards. It's a software limitation, in other words, not a hardware limitation.

Harley Davidson Road Tech HA90 SD card problem

reformatting the 1gb or the 2gb disk is a snap, but that won't fix your problem, here's how to reformat then I'll discuss the way to make a 1 or 2 GB work, first with the disk and also the reader that came with the Harley MP3 player just plug it into the usb port on your computer, then click start on the computer, then my computer, now you will see Icons for the A,D,E and F drive, the F drive being your storage device ( sound disk ) right click on this and when the drop down window appears you will see either fat or fat32, most likely it's already set to fat32, if not then change it to fat32, now just click on format, a drop down will tell you that all info on the disk will be lost, click O.K. and it will reformat the card.Now to get your Harley HA90 Road Tech MP3 player to read the card, the player will not read a card that has the soundtracks in a folder so you have to open the folder, I have explained the how to in another post on this site, so to save space try to find it, if you cannot then make a post to let me know

2GB card not reading

,, hey more than likely your player may not support 2bg cards.. maybe 1 gb but very few support 2 gb.. I suggest you verify this in your manual.. If it does, format the card using a fat32 file scheme.. Yo do thius by right clicking the drive your card shows up as in windows and lecting format, then select fat32 and hit start.. Let me know what happens..

XO Vision Styler MP3 Problem Getting it to work

I found this on Wal-marts review page. I did it and it worked.
Good Luck
When i first bought it i had problems with saving the files onto the Player itself the music would not stay on it. Well i have figured out this problem and fixed it heh its quite simple of a problem to be solved the Mp3 player operates on FAT32 which its Hardware does not Support and which couses the problem of Data Loss so to fix this Reformat it in FAT format Not i repeat NOT FAT32 this should fix your problem other than that this is a very good product and i give it a very good grade for size performance and its nice 2 gig drive space
How to?
1) go to your My Computer.
2) Right click on your Ejectable drive or Drive G and go to Format in the drop down Menu.
3) Bellow File System select FAT not FAT32.
4) format the drive G which is your MP3 Player and then continue with putting music on it.
Done it should work fine now ^-^ Enjoy hehe

Trouble using an SD Card

If Sansa e130 or 140 is version 1.x.x.10, SD card MUST be formatted as FAT (FAT16). Music files need to be on the root directory for better performance. I have a SD card (2 gig) formatted as FAT16 and the music plays good.

I was not able to upgrade my e130 to Version Firmware.
Hope this helps

HA90 MP3/WMA player

When I was looking at this product, I contacted the manufacturer and they made it clear the unit worked best with a 512 mb or smaller card. The problem is not with Sandisk or the SD manufacturer, it is with the HA90.
