SOURCE: Format problem

If "format error" is flashing, the format of the file system is wrong - it needs to be reinstated as Atrac3 file format. I'm guessing you formatted it using the option on your computer. I've had this problem with my Sony NW-E105, and fixed it. Turn on the player, and press your menu button. Scroll over until the option displays "format", and then select that.

SOURCE: format error .it will not play .

Hi ayalajr74,
Songs may not be encoded in mp3 format even if the extension is mp3. You can try converting the files to mp3 again by using a free program like Medimonkey or any online converter, and then see if they play. I had the same problem with all the .mp4 video files.

The song you are trying to play on the MP3 player is probably not MP3 , or it is a format that the MP3 player cannot read.

Device keeps saying format error,cannot play music


Format error means the file type is incorrect. you may have downloaded MP4 or WAV files. They need to be MP3 I imagine and be in te same bitrate as the player. The player probably came with software for converting files to the proper format.

Why do i get format error when i put songs from a cd on the eclipse?


Hi,

1. Why do i get format error when i put songs from a cd on the eclipse?
= This is probably because the format that your songs are currently in is not supported by your device. Supported devices on the Mach Speed Eclipse 180 MP3 player are: mp3, wav, and wma. If your music is for example filename.cda, it won't be able to play because of the file format being .cda.


2. I also see the song on the eclipse but it says drm protected and will not play the song.
= When ripping your music, check your ripping options in whichever ripping software you are using that protecting music files is off, this may be the reason why your music cannot play - it may be protected to only play on the computer that ripped(recorded or duplicated) the song.

I dont know how to load videos and watch them on my eclipse mp3. every time i try to watch something...it says format error even though the video on my mp3 is in AVI format!


This is simply because the Eclipse MP3 player does not read .AVI formatted videos. The videos must be in .AMV format. A good way to convert your .AVI videos into .AMV is to use FreeAMVConverter located at the following link. http://www.amvvideoconverter.net/. You can use this to convert your videos to .AMV format and then they should work.
Hope this helped, NathanTaylor

CAN'T HEAR MUSIC, IT SAY FORMAT ERROR,WHAT DO I DO?


Your getting a format error because the format of the song,video,etc
you are trying to play is not the format needed by your MP3 player to
play the song,video,etc.
Always check in your owners manual to find out what format your player
requires.
Once you have determined what the format you have (MP3,MP4,ACC,WMA,etc.)
you will need to determine what format you need for your player to play
those songs,video,etc.
If the format that you have for your songs,videos,etc is different than
the format that you need for your player to play them, then you will
have to download a format converter and convert each song,video,etc to
the format that is usable in your MP3 player.

Eclipse mp3 player says "no file"


I had the same problem. I think most files that itunes uses are in a .m4a format. The eclipse mp3 player will need all the music files in an .mp3 format. The eclipse actually has a "software" folder that includes the "replay converter" that will convert these files for you - or you can download any number of freeware that will convert the files as well. Once I converted those files, my eclipse played everything. Prior to that - even though I had synced everything with my Windows Media player, I was getting the "No Files" message. Good Luck!
