Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
I've had this device since August and have never had any problems deleting, adding or removing music.
However the other day I connected it to my PC which has Windows XP Home, and the strangest thing happened, Windows claimed my MP3 Player was unformatted and asked if I wanted it formatted.
Now I know Windows likes to annoy people, so I clicked No. Now my MP3 player has lost all the music on it and no other PC can even detect the device, only my PC can detect the device and won't allow me to open the device until I reformat. So, after the 12th message requesting a format, I tried a format to which Windows said it couldn't format the device.
Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

Tips for a great answer:
Install Windows Media Player if the program is not on the computer.
Out there, it's only you and your music. No time for games. Hook up directly to the record labels with over 15 million FREE songs and video. 100% legal. 100% safe.
Put music into your Windows Music Player library. Click "File" in the top left of the program. Highlight and select "Add to Library." A window will appear.
Select the "Add" button.
Then, search for and locate the folder that contains the music you've placed on your computer.
Choose this folder and then click "OK." Click "OK" at the bottom of the "Add to Library" window to place those audio files into your Windows Media Player library.
Click "Sync" at the top of the program.
Plug the MP3 player into the computer.
Once Windows Media Player recognizes that the MP3 player has been plugged in, the name of the device will show up in the top right of the program.
Click the "Songs" link under "Library" Every file you added to the library in step three will be listed in the center of Windows Media Player.
Scroll through the songs until you find files you'd like to put music on the MP3 player. Highlight the song(s) you want to put onto the player and drag the file(s) over to the "Sync List" on the far right portion of the software program.
Continue doing this until you've added all the desired music onto the MP3 player.
Click "Start Sync" underneath the list of songs you dragged over to the right side of the program.
The music will be added to the MP3 player.
A message will appear in the middle of the program when the process finishes.
You can then disconnect your MP3 player.
hope this helps
