Question about Hard Drives

Mp3 player thinks it is full and I can't delete or paste.

I have this generic mp3 player which came with instructions in chinese. It has a delete all feature, but that doesn't seem to work. I have deleted music files, but it has not released the space. I am afraid to reformat, but if I can't figure out how to fix it, I might have to.

The sandisk flash memory drive i bought had 1 threat on it, so i format it..I then loaded songs on it but could not play on my car mp3 player

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You can download mp3 music files from the Internet toyour computer and then copy them to your MP3 player. For your CD collection, you need to convert your CDs tomp3 music files onto your computer or download them from the Internet and thencopy them to your MP3 player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.

Don'thow to use it

Plug the drive into an available USB port on your computer. Windows should recognize the driver and install the drivers for it automatically. You should be able to access the drive by double clicking on the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. It may also pop up to view contents automatically.

in the table select, "storage" then "disk management"
in that table find the drive that relates to your mp3 player

How to download songs on my mp3 player


First plug it into the USB port on your computer. Wait for the operating system to detect it and install the appropriate driver for it.
Then go to My Computer and it'll be there as a Removable Disk. However, the first thing you have to do with a new Removable Device such as this is, right-click on the drive and Format the drive.
This will let you operating system understand and allocate space on the drive for your songs.
Then you can copy and paste any mp3 onto it. Some mp4's are protected though so they won't play on it.
Hope this helps

I have a macbook and I was storing my old computers  (ibook g4) music and photos on my firelight drive. This morning I went to backup some of my new photos. It would not let me put anything else on it and...

I had a similar problem in the past. If you have deleted files from the firelight drive, you need to empty the trash while the drive is plugged in for them to be officially gone. Otherwise, the "deleted" files still take up space on your drive.

Hope this is helpful!
