My freestyle player says format error how to fix?? it was working fine and then this error.

Hello there,

Q.: My player is having a DRM error / Format Error / Empty Disk Error
what do I do?
A: For all 3 errors, the first step is to attempt to reset the player, this can be accomplished by pressing the play and menu
buttons down together for approximately five seconds. If reset does nothing, make sure all the songs are .mp3s, if all songs
are .mp3s, attempt to format and re-sync the player.

How do I convert my iTunes into MP3 format?
A: See Music Conversion Instruction Document: Transferring and Playing Music on Freestyle Audio mp3 players with

if you need to format the player here is how for MAC and windows.

Q.: What's Reformatting, How do I format my Player?
A: Reformatting your player basically wipes you player clean and deletes all songs, leaving you with a blank slate. Like
most removable drives you can reformat your player with no worries of damage to the unit. When reformatting on a Mac
make sure you choose the MS-DOS format style.
PC (Windows NT, 9x, XP and Vista):
1. Plug in the Mp3 Player.
2. Put the Player in removable drive mode. Under "My Computer" you should
see the player as a removable drive.
3. Right click on the "removable drive" and a Drop down menu should appear.
4. In the menu select the option "format..."
5. Make sure that "FAT" is selected as the file system and that Allocation
Unit size is set to "Default Allocation Unit Size"
6. Now click format and wait, after it says format complete, you're done.
MAC OS 9 (and Earlier):
1. Plug the player in.
2. Put the player in removable drive mode.
3. Single-click the disk's icon on your desktop to format.
4. Pull down the "Special" menu from the top of the screen and select "Erase
5. Enter whatever name you want in the "Name:" field in the window that pops
up. If the disk is a hard drive, select "Mac OS Extended" from the
"Format:" pull down. If the disk is not a hard drive (such as a Zip Disk
or other removable media), select "MS-DOS or MAC OS Standard" for the
6. Press "Erase." The drive will be formatted and ready to use.
MAC OS X (and later):
1. Start your computer and plug in the player in the USB port after the Mac
OS has completed loading.
2. Put the Player in removable drive mode.
3. An icon for a removable drive should appear for the flash drive on the
4. From the Dock, open "Disk Utility".
5. Click "Erase" from the top selector (next to "First Aid")
6. Choose "MS DOS File System (FAT16)"
7. Click the "Erase" button
8. Perform the instructions given on the screen and finish the formatting.

Why does my mp3 player say disk the sharper image error

unfortunately being that it is a sharper image there is no fix for disk errors. It means the flash memory has become unusable. The only thing you can try to do is.
format the disk and see if it works from there.
These arent really electronics that are able to be fixed on the consumer level nor is it cost effective on this unit. How long have you owned the unit? if it is still under warranty send it back for replacement. If not i would buy a new mp3 player and go with a more name brand company such as Phillips or someone that provides firmware and software that allows disk errors to be fixed on a consumer level.

How do i put music on my mp3,4 free ,

depending onm its name brand or your computer you might be able to use a media service like windows media player to sync the songs on to the device. If you want to download songs for free i would say limewire or frostwire. although most people wont use it because of th risk of viruses i have used it for years with almost no problems at all. the problems i did have with limewire was it takes up alot of space on my computer. frostwire isnt as bad for taking up space but it doesnt have as many songs as limewire.

Sansa express mp3 player

First, try a soft reset. Do this by pressing the center button and the up volume button simultaneously and try turning it on. If that does not work for you, you will need to get a micro sd card (it can be a dummy) and insert it into the slot on the side of the mp3 player. If you do not have one, you can use one of the round edges of a paper clip (be careful to push it in slow) to get it to come on. When you put either in, it should come on automatically, but if not, just press the power button. This should work.
