1st was the pictures on internal or removable memory.
2nd whenyou dock the camera to your computer is it recognized as another drive with memory,(e.g. Sipix 16mb)

If your answer to either is yes, contact me at I can e-mail you some good recovery software that you should be able to get everything back.

Downloaded music not audible on 4GB Sharper Image SMP588A-4 MP3 player, but Windows Corp sound effects accidently downloaded play

It looks mostly as a format problem. In general all the possible formats supported by a player are ON, in the sense they can readily used.
Try playing most general formats on your mp3 player.

I just bought sd card for my ilo but when I try to access it wont let me store any music. How do I format it and prep it for access?

You need to format all new cards. Does your Mp3 player show up as a drive when you hook it up to your computer if so open that drive right click on format use FAT32 for windows os. If your Mp3 player does not show up as a drive use the SD slot on your computer to format. Choose the SD card slot drive right click on the drive choose farmat... use FAT32 for windows os. and you should be off and downloading great tunes... Good luck hope that helped.

Plzzz help=i formatted by accident now it wont...

i guess that you have to reformat it into FAT32 file system using the disk manager in windows (if you're using windows). select my computer using the right key of your mouse, select MANAGEMENT. then select the sub-menu DISK MANAGER. you'll see two logically connected partitions (Sansa_e250 & another partition that is the system partition). try formating the Sansa_e250 partition into FAT32 insted of the default FAT file system!! that helped me after a bug (sansa didn't let me delete songs from is root/music) hope that helps.. p.s. that actually worked for Sansa_c240 p.s.2 if you're a linux user try fdisk (login as root)

System files - windows doesnt seem to now be able to detect iriver

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.
