If you have only deleted the music (not) formatted it, you can just put the same music back onto it by finding where the music files are on your computer and sending them to your device. This is a very easy process and nothing is lost as long as you have saved the music files onto your computer.
Most people save their music files onto the music file folders or in the C: drive of their PC. If you have a media player: Windows Media player, they might be on there.
