Mac reformatted


MP3 players expect an MS-DOS (or FAT) format.

They do not read Mac formatted memory.

Reformat the MP3 player to MS-DOS format (your files will be deleted, so back them up if necessary) and the player should read the memory once more.

RCA Opal mp3 player needs to be reformatted and I cant find the disk


The software is available from RCA's website

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.

If you want to delete EVERY track off the player, then reformat the player in Windows Media Player - it's a shortcut - see my "tips and tricks" on formatting mp3 players

If there are artist, album traces, then you need to click on every subfolder under your device in Windows Media Player and delete every trace that way - tedious, but effective

There are 2 ways to format an mp3 player - if you were formatting the mp3 player from "My Computer," then try reformatting from Windows Media Player instead - I have a "tips and tricks" entry on How to Format an Mp3 Player for details

If that doesn't work, then double-click on My Computer, double-click on the Sansa player, and go to the various folders that it lists - music, voice, etc. Delete the songs ONLY - do not delete the dat, bat, ini, inf, or other system files

Three possibilities:
1) You did a firmware upgrade
2) You formatted the player
3) The DB became corrupt, and you will need to either reformat the player or upgrade the firmware

No, there is not a way to recover the deleted songs.

Incorrect format


The songs that you loaded onto the player are not in the correct format - iTunes, DRM-encrypt. WMA are not allowed, for instance. Convert everything to mp3 format. It is asking you to reformat the player because it wants you to delete the wrong-formatted songs off the player. I would check your user manual to find the best way to reformat.

In general, though, there are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player.

Deleting songs


i was having the same prob and trying to find a solution is a pain in the behind..... i decided to look up the manual and guess what i found... the reasoning to this very frustrating question...

The contents transferred in MSC mode will not be seen in the PC with MTP mode selected on your device.
The contents transferred in MTP mode will not be seen in the PC with MSC mode selected on your device.

now the solution step-by-step

1. turn on your player when not connected to your pc
2. press 'm' til you get to the menu
3. go into settings
4. go into advanced
5. this shows the protocol the player is currently using... hit your play/pause button and change it to the other protocol
6. turn off your mp3 player
7. connect to pc

now you can see all those songs you couldn't find and delete before...

i used windows explorer and there were all those songs i supposedly deleted.... i deleted them and guess what? instead of over 200 songs i now only have 77.... works perfectly... give it a try... this should work for everyone with this player...
