How do i format my mp3 player without a disk


I don't know if this is affected by the 'network' aspect of your player, but this would be the general procedure for MP3 players, where you can view the player as a drive on your computer.

You can format the player using Windows, but there is a complication: Windows defaults to "NTFS" when formatting, but MP3 players normally use FAT32. Before you attempt this, connect the player, and check the 'properties' on the drive that appears. It will probably say "FAT32". In this case, you can go ahead and format the drive, but be sure that you choose "FAT32" from the drop-down list. If you format it NTFS, your player won't be able to read it!

RCA Pearl TH1602-A default formatting


first of all, you need to be running these tests on a FAT16/32 bit machine running windows 95/98. second, right click on the device in my computer -> properties and at the top it will state the format:
File System: FAT32

The device always retains its factory settings/formatting until it is plugged into a computer, just by having it plugged in a .ini file is created and settings are stored in it, including file name, system and usually the format version.

If a user re-formats this device, they may have (assuming they excel in computers as i do...) the knowledge to edit these settings. Good luck

Boot error on mp3 player model 4008a


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.

Check whether u formatted your player to NTFS rather than FAT32.

Just do a reformat, and this time, in the FAT32 format.

Need ti toaly reset rca pearl TH1102


I sort of had the same issue, it let me upload and delete files but it told me there were no files on the player. What I did was plug the player in with usb and then go into My Computer. Right click the mp3 drive (whatever it may be named, my was named Pearl) and select Format. On the Format options look for the File System and make sure it is set to FAT (not FAT32 or NTFS, just FAT) and do a quick format on it. Then try to upload an mp3 and see if it goes from there. It worked for me on Vista Ultimate.
