    I get the message "Incorrect format. Reformat the player." when I turn on my MP3 player. I don't know that I did anything to it to cause this problem. It didn't start after downloading music.

The solution is correct. I emailed support@lexar.com and received an email the next day with a firmware patch that reformatted my player.
Just an FYI, this did NOT work under Vista and since I had an XP media center laptop sitting next to me I didn't play with it. On the XP system it worked flawlessly. I ended up with a fully functional MP3 player again, nothing in the folder at all and it only took a minute.
Send them an email and I would expect you'd get a response within 1-2 business days. As mentioned, my response was within 18 hours.

Had the same problem. Lexar Live Help was very helpful. Firmware to install can be found there:
ftp://67.192.187.161/lexar/files/Bose MP3 Firmware.zip
Only works with XP.

Since I got no answer from support@lexar.com I looked for something else. I don't know how and I don't know why, but this worked for me:

I downloaded a trial version of acronis disk director (http://www.acronis.com/homecomputing/download/diskdirector/), installed it and after the install I rebooted my computer. The player was connected to pc during the reboot, but the pc freezed and I had to restart it manually and remove the player from pc. Then the computer booted ok. I started the acronis disk director, connected the mp3 player and suddenly, a pop-up window appeared asking "what do you want Windows to do". I went into my computer and the drive was there, fully accessible with its data uncorrupted.

It was sure magic!

Hi gang! Thanks for your replies and suggestions for a fix to this problem.

I applied the "contact Lexar" suggestion with a twist: Lexar LiveHelp. It worked like a charm, and now (approximately 15 minutes after I first read this post) my player works like a charm again! Thank you!
