Try re-creating the partition in windows disk manager. You should then be able to format.

Connect the player to your PC. Start windows explorer and find the drive "removable disk". Select this drive, right click on it and choose "format". Then you get to a window where you should simply click the "start" button.
If your player remains in blocked state you will need to upgrade the firmware.

see the player as a removable drive.

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

I cannot format my mp3 player using properties/format so it will work on windows media player via fat32 or fat.

restart your PC, plug mp3 player into PC. Go to my computer> right click> explore. On the right windows menu, right click the mass storage (mp3)> choose format (quick format would be faster). Good Luck

I just bought sd card for my ilo but when I try to access it wont let me store any music. How do I format it and prep it for access?

You need to format all new cards. Does your Mp3 player show up as a drive when you hook it up to your computer if so open that drive right click on format use FAT32 for windows os. If your Mp3 player does not show up as a drive use the SD slot on your computer to format. Choose the SD card slot drive right click on the drive choose farmat... use FAT32 for windows os. and you should be off and downloading great tunes... Good luck hope that helped.

Can't complete nextar mp3 formatting

hi sir

Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Flash error

Generally this either means you have a filesystem error or the flash memory that your mp3 player stores its music on has gone bad.

If you plug the mp3 player into your PC and view its drive letter in my computer. By right clicking to open the command window you can choose format. When you make sure you do not have quick format checked, go ahead with the format. This will erase all of the music currently on it, but may fix the problem with replacing the file system. If your memory is bad, your best bet is to replace the unit. Repairing these is generally never worth the cost since they drop in price half every 6 months.
