Re: Error format

I think the cd rom that came with it is supposed to help the computer recognize it.

When i put my mp3 on and i go into music or radio or video all i see is file system error

Try connecting the unit to your computer. When the device is detected, click on the icon 'My Computer' and then you will see the player as, for example, drive E:\. Right-click on it and then go to 'Format', and format it using the FAT file system, not NTFS.

My PC not detecting This MP3 player

It sounds like you have got rid of the software on your mp3 player which is why it isnt recognised. You say you formatted it rather than just deleting what you did not want. I take it that you formatted your mp3 rather than the computer? If you formatted the computer you may have drivers missing.

Please do the following to isolate the problem:

1. Connect the MP3 player into different USB port of the computer and make sure that the computer could detect it.
2. If the computer does not detect it, use another computer.
3. Make sure that you have enough memory space in your MP3 player so that you could download songs.
4. Download songs that has .mp3 file format
5. Try different USB cable to isolate the problem.

NOTE: iPod is using different different file format, make sure that your MP3 supports that file format. If not, those songs will notplay in you MP3.

Did you use Windows Media Player to format?

WMP never does a thorough format.

If so, try formatting thru My Computer. Right Click on the Device (e260) and select FORMAT.

Then try transferring your music again.

Best of Luck.

Did you format it properly?

Usually MP3 Players are to be formatted with the FAT32 File System. This can be easily done on Windows.
Simply connect the Mp3 Player to your computer via the USB. Then Windows should be able to detect it just fine. Go to My Computer and right clock on the new device (that is the MP3 Player) and select "Format".
Format as FAT32 and try again.

PS: You may want to backup all data (if that is possible) before you attempt this Format thing.
