Suddenly a corrupt file/lost directory/can't delete

One MP3 file suddenly would not play, would not open, froze up the player, and I rebooted by removing the battery. Plugged into a USB port on the computer and a window came up saying the file was corrupt and/or lost its directory address.

Tried to enter the directory address which it would not take and I can't delete it. Every time I try to delete it this window come up saying it is corrupted. Every other music file works just fine.

You may try restoring your mp3 player to factory settings and then loading the music back. Make sure you have a back up of your files before restoring though.

SwiMP3 (128 MB) MP3 Player: I have the original first version of the Swimp3 pl...


This could actually be an easy fix. If you have any files on the player that are not WMA or MP3 files, or that you've stored your music in folders - either way it could simply stop the drive from playing.

Incompatible Music Files: If you have loaded a music file that is not compatible, it simply won't play. The SwiMP3 player works with mp3 or wma files, but not aac (like from iTunes).

Solution: Remove the incompatible files. Convert your other music files to mp3 or wma, and if you are importing your songs direct from itunes, you'll need to convert them to mp3s first.



Incompatible NON-Music Files: An MP3 player is similar to a Thumb Drive or Flash Drive because it can hold any kind of file that will fit in the drive's capacity. However, if you have loaded an incompatible file - including JPEGs, Cover Art, Word Docs, anything that is not an MP3 or WMA file, the player simply can't translate it into music.

Solution: Remove the incompatible files, leaving only your mp3 or wma files in your root directory.



Folders: The mp3 player is not able to open folders and play music files stored inside, to the Swimp3 player the folder is simply an un-playable file.

Solution: Open the folders, move or copy the music files into the root directory (remember, mp3 or wma - not aac), then delete the folders.

I hope you find this helpful.

Anko directory error when plugging into my computer


Microsoft error management for error 47 says

When the "safely remove hardware" icon is in the status bar (the by time) disconnet the mp3 player. After a few seconds connect it again. Then reboot the computer system. You will then be able to see the contents of the mp3 payer.

I tried and it works. Also it means the player could be removed without clicking on"safely remove hardware".

Help to recover or repair a corrupted file on my daughter's sansa mp3 player


If the file is corrupted then there is no way for you to play nor listen to it. If the player is saying the file is corrupted and to test if the file is really corrupted please try to do this steps. Connect the player to the computer. Open My Comptuer window and open the player locate the file and try to copy that file to your desktop and play that file. If the file copied and played successfully then that good. If not the only way to prevent this is to format the player. Change the player to MSC mode then connect to the computer and open my computer and right-click on the player and choose format remove the check on the quick format and click start to format the player. Formatting the player will delete all the files and data on the device and it will fix any bad sectors that would cause file corruption on the player.
