Re: mp3 player not functioning
We need the manufacturer and model to help.
When you "format" you usually erase everything and the file library and firmware that the player needs to have to know what to do with the files you're placing in your player. Otherwise it's like a body without a brain.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

To reformat the NWZ-S545 Walkman follow these steps found on page 92 of the operation guide:
Formatting memory [Format] You can format the built-in flash memory of the player.
If the memory is formatted, all data (songs, videos, photos, etc., including sample data installed at the factory) will be erased. Be sure to verify the data stored in memory prior to formatting, and export any important data to the hard disk of your computer.
Be sure not to initialize (format) the built-in flash memory of the player using Windows Explorer. If you have formatted with Windows Explorer, format again using the player.
This function is only available in the pause mode.
From the [Home] menu, select [Settings] / [Common Settings] / [Format]. [All data including songs will be deleted. Proceed?] appears.
Select [Yes]. [All data will be deleted. Proceed?] appears. To cancel the operation, select [No].
Select [Yes]. When initialization finishes, [Memory formatted.] appears.To cancel the operation, select [No].
You can reformat the player in Windows Media Player - this will erase all songs (or you can delete the songs one by one in Windows Media Player). Microsoft's website has click-by-click instructions on how to do this - complete with illustrations. Just enter "Windows Media Player" as your search term - it will take you to the Windows Media Player help files.
Reformat in Windows Media Player instead.
Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
I have a mp3 player like this, and sometimes it take 2 or 3 formats to get it right. Also, try rebooting the computer. Many people leave their either on or in standby, and they need to be
rebooted once in a while to keep everything straight.
Hope this helps, and please rate my advice.
Thank you, and good luck!!
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
You can always reformat it. If you plug the mp3 player into your computer and right click on the icon in the MY COMPUTER window, and click on FORMAT. It should come to a new window and click on start format.
I had a similar problem, I could upload songs, but they wouldn't play and I couldn't delete them.
turned out it was cause I didn't have WMP10 installed on my PC, had an older version.
the user manual states it only works with WMP10, and after I installed it (just search for windows media player 10 on the microsoft website) I was able to use the synch function in WMP10 and all the songs are playable (I'm listening to an album as I type :D)
