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. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
u might have to reformat it because mine did the same thing and sombody told me how to reformat it all u do is plug ur mp3 into ur computer with ur usb cord then go to a folder called 'my computer' then there should ba an icon that looks somthing like an mp3 and if u dont see it at first give it a few minuets then when it dose show up it should have the name of what ur mp3. RIGHT CLICK on the icon then click on FORMAT and it should reformat it.It might not work though oh and if the name of ur mp3 isent there but the icon is and were the name of ur mp3 should be it will say something like MTP device like it did 2 me when i tried to reformat mine.If that dont work u could try to reset it by holding the power button for 10 secends.Those might not cause neither 1 did 4me.good luck!!
use the user maunal so you know what I'm talking about. I got the FAT error! Plz.. and I could still get the icons. This is how I fixed it. Go to settings and go to advanced press play once only. Plug into computer and it wil recognize it as a flash drive. Completely Format the drive then unplug the player from computer. It will switch back to previous setting automatically. If you need to update drivers and firmware use the auto updater from http://www.voxxsupport.com/images/downloads/autoupdater.exe
