I have a panasonic blu ray home cinema system, it says my usb isnt compatible cannot read it, trying to play music via a portable hard drive


It may be in the wrong format, there are 2 main format for usb hard drives, FAT32 and NTFS. You may have to reformat to a different format to what you currently have. To do this, you will need to plug it into a computer, go to Computer and right click on your drive and select format. Select either FAT32 or NTFS, make sure there is a tick in Quick Format and then click start. Please note, this will erase all data off your USB stick so make sure to copy all your data to your computer before you do this. If it doesn't work, then try the other format i.e if FAT32 does not work try NTFS. And just as a side note, the main difference between the 2 formats is FAT32 will not allow you to copy files over 4GB while NTFS will.

How can u reformat the acer netbook by copying to other computer


Step 1:

I'm not sure end result you're looking for but I can give you the process on how you can format or reformat your hard drive by. Keep in mind that formatting a drive will erase everything on it so back up everything before starting the process. I believe it will only allow you format or reformat a secondary drive.

Step 2:


Right click on my computer on xp or right click computer in the start button on vista and beyond then select manage


Step 3:

Go to disk management (it is under storage) and right click on the hard drive you want to format and select format

Step 4:

Follow the prompt and the drive will format or reformat. Most likely it will change to NTFS.

My freestyle player says format error how to fix?? it was working fine and then this error.


Hello there,

Q.: My player is having a DRM error / Format Error / Empty Disk Error
what do I do?
A: For all 3 errors, the first step is to attempt to reset the player, this can be accomplished by pressing the play and menu
buttons down together for approximately five seconds. If reset does nothing, make sure all the songs are .mp3s, if all songs
are .mp3s, attempt to format and re-sync the player.

How do I convert my iTunes into MP3 format?
A: See Music Conversion Instruction Document: Transferring and Playing Music on Freestyle Audio mp3 players with
iTunes.

if you need to format the player here is how for MAC and windows.

Q.: What's Reformatting, How do I format my Player?
A: Reformatting your player basically wipes you player clean and deletes all songs, leaving you with a blank slate. Like
most removable drives you can reformat your player with no worries of damage to the unit. When reformatting on a Mac
make sure you choose the MS-DOS format style.
(CAUTION: FORMATTING WILL ERASE EVERTHING ON THE DRIVE)
PC (Windows NT, 9x, XP and Vista):
1. Plug in the Mp3 Player.
2. Put the Player in removable drive mode. Under "My Computer" you should
see the player as a removable drive.
3. Right click on the "removable drive" and a Drop down menu should appear.
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
Disk..."
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
format.
6. Press "Erase." The drive will be formatted and ready to use.
MAC OS X (and later):
1. Start your computer and plug in the player in the USB port after the Mac
OS has completed loading.
2. Put the Player in removable drive mode.
3. An icon for a removable drive should appear for the flash drive on the
desktop.
4. From the Dock, open "Disk Utility".
5. Click "Erase" from the top selector (next to "First Aid")
6. Choose "MS DOS File System (FAT16)"
7. Click the "Erase" button
8. Perform the instructions given on the screen and finish the formatting.

if you need any help with a Step let me know and i hope this information was helpful don't forget to Rate .

My cell phone micro sd card says memory card has an unrecognized format and that reformatting will erase the data what do i do and how do i reformat and not lose the data i don't know how to reformat


Do you have a memory card reader for your PC, try to borrow one from a friend and check if you can read data off the card. If you can then make a backup of the data and then format the card to FAT32 as i think you have formatted the card to NTFS which is a file system native to windows and will not work with mobile phones. The best option would be to format the card on the phone itself after data backup as it will assure compatibility with itself.

When you plug an mp3 player into a 2nd computer with a different operating system, a reformatting takes place, rendering it unusable on one computer or another without reformatting the player

Danger: reformatting a player will erase all of the songs on that player

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.

Cant reformat


When I had to format mine it works the same as formatting a disk - it will erase the drive. Unfortunately you will have to reload all your music back on the MP3.

DISK ERROR WHEN I TRY TO USE MP3


I had the same issue and just connected the device to my computer USB connection and performed a quick format on the drive and it now works. You will be warned that reformatting the drive will erase all the data, which will happen. But you can simply reload your music and be back in business... Rod
