When I down load music it will not play ,I get a format error message. What do I do


Hi a nite377...

Your player takes a certain format to play the music that you want to put into it.
It is telling you format error because the music you are trying to put into it is not the right format to play on you mp3 player.
You will need to download and install a format converter.
It will take the format of your songs that you want to put on it and convert them to the right format for your player to play.
Once you have the songs converted to the format you need, then download them to your player and they should play in your player when selected.
Go to the following website and download install and run a FREE (no strings attached) file converter.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

Hii, I have sony mp3 player, model NWZS616F. It will transfer the songs from the Computer, but when I unplug it to use it, the songs are simply not there. Can you please help me on the same ASAP.


If you're getting a "Library Error" type message, you can try the following fix, but it will DELETE all music files currently on your player....

(1) Go to the main control screen (press BACK button for about 2 seconds)

(2) Select the SETTINGS icon (looks like a briefcase)

(3) Press PLAY button

(4) Select COMMON SETTINGS

(5) Scroll all the way to bottom and select FORMAT

(6) The player will ask if you want to delete all data. Select YES each time to delete all songs (takes about 1 minute to complete)

(7) Reload ONE tune only and see if the player will now play it

(8) Reload all your other tunes

(9) Finished ! :-)

It keeps saying file error


Check the format of the music you are playing and if you have music that requires the license it will load the music but not play. It will show up as a file error.

Maybe you should mention that if you format, it will delete all your songs?

Using the instructions below try Cleanup first, if that doesn't work... (if you have a backup of all your music on your computer), try the format option


This is from Creative's website:
Zen V Plus and Zen V
  1. Detach your player from the PC if it is connected, and turn off the player.
If the player stops responding, you can reset the player. To reset the player, gently
insert a thin object into the Reset hole located below the power switch.
2. Press and hold the Play button while powering on your player.
3. When the player displays the Creative logo, release the Play button.

It will display the following options:
Clean Up
Scans the player and removes invalid links from its music library.
Does not affect music files themselves.
Format (All) Caution! Erases all content!
Save a copy of your player's content before formatting.
Reload OS/ Firmware Caution! Erases your player's firmware.
DO NOT select the Reload Firmware option unless you have access to a PC and you have downloaded the necessary firmware to install.
Reboot Reboots the device.

File error


With your mp3 player not playing any music, press and hold Search/Menu until the menu comes up (1-2 seconds). Scroll to the last chioce, which is Advanced Menu. Press your Play button to select it, select Format, select OK, and your mp3 player will be formatted. This WILL erase all of the music that you have on there, but reload it all with SonicStage, and you should be good to go.
