Re: it doesn't let me play my songs!

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

you may need to reformat it according to the computer you are using. If you, just select the drive in my computer(where your hard drive/cdrom/all that **** is) hit format, at the top there will be a drop down menu, click fat16 from there, then select quick format...should fix everything

MP3 Player reads reformat error Fat16. How do I reformat it?

Plug the mp3 player into the computer
Double-click My Computer
Right-click icon of the mp3 player
Select Format
It will give you a choice usually between FAT and FAT32 - FAT is the same as FAT16 in Windows-speak, so select "FAT"

If you have plugged your mp3 player into a Mac, you are out-of-luck.

Reformat Internal Media as FAT16

Depending on the requirements of the mp3 player, you may just have to right-click format in Explorer, or a computer guru friend to format it for you with a partitioning program if it needs a partition table.
