Try this... connect your mp3 player to your computer. click on my computer and look for the drive where your mp3 is connected. if it has a name on the drive like ie. ABCDE (E:) that abcde is the volume label. when you reformat your drive and its asking for the volume label just type in those character beside the drive letter.

goodluck!

I can't get my hard drive to format; I've fdisked and installed a new partition. At a:\> I typed fortmat c: and enter and it says bad command or file name. what else can I try?


To format your hard disk reboot your computer and at the first logo hit f8. When you come to the advanced troubleshooting menu arrow up to safe mode with command prompt and hit enter. It will then take you to the C:... with a blinking cursor. If you don't have the C: , if you have an A: or something similar type in there C: and hit enter. It should then bring you to the C: After that you will need to type in the following: vol and hit enter. This will display your volume label which you will need to format your hard drive. Once this is displayed it will then take you back to the C: then type format /C: and hit enter. It will then ask you for the volume label, type in what you see just above on the screen for your volume label and hit enter. It will then ask you if you are sure you want to format, type Y and hit enter. Youre computer will then go through the format process and your hard drive will then be WIPED. Make sure that you have all of your important files backed up as you will not have them any longer once this process is complete. You will then be able to exit out and if you have a partition with your backup on it you should be able to just reboot and Windows will begin to load. Otherwise you will need to install Windows with your CD. Hope this was of some help. Any questions, let me know!

What does volume label mean?


When a hard drive has been formatted, the user can give the storage space created a name: that is the volume label.
For example, on a PC computer the main hard drive is recognized as C, the CD-Player as D: and if a USB key is plugged in it gets drive letter E:
In addition to these Drive letters, the user may choose to give a more "meaningful " name to one or all drives. This additional name is the volume label. It is usually optional on PCs.

You digital media player is also a hard drive and the storage space on the media player (where you store your files, songs) can have a NAME or volume label.

My USB says that it is 4gb, but when i go to properties, it says that over half of the space has been used, yet there isnt anything in my USB!!!???


Hello...Pal! You will have to format your disk using your computer so that it works properly. You have two options to format for micro sd card. One is, you are to open my computer and right click on the sd card drive and choose format option. This will display a window, there is a option of quick format, make a check sign to this and press format button. Second is, go to start menu -> Program Files -> Accessories -> and choose command prompt. when command prompt window opens, type e.g, "format K:" and press enter, if it ask for volume label, type its drive name like Personal (C:), only type the name e.g, Personal, and if it does not ask for volume label, press enter one more time, then this will show a surity message, type Y and press enter, your micro-sd card will be format successfully.
