Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

Normsbackup again, You and others helped me out a couple of weeks ago with my mp3 player and having to re format the system. That was done and it worked great for a week or two. Now the screen stays blank, it just lights up when you turn it on but does nothing else. All the menues gone. may be it's time I just chuck this player away and try my luck with another one. Can you help. Norm

    I purchased it about 6 weeks ago, on ebay, no info on who the manufact. is so can't send it away for warranty, seller on ebay is no help. so I will trash it. I also suspect that the flash card inside was not what the outside and seller said it was.

Hi norms,

I've been away for a couple of weeks, and just returned.

If you've already tried repeating the previous fix to no avail, it sounds like the player might have a physical hardware fault of some kind. If it's out of warranty, that would unfortunately condemn it to the trash bin.

Sansa c250 and rhapsody


I first suggest that you use Windows Media Player on transferring songs to the player. Rhapsody is a p**n in the a** when i use it to transfer songs to the player. Well back to the topic, make sure the device that you have is set to MTP when you are transferring songs to the player using rhapsody.. If it will not transfer format the player using Settings and then FORMAT if it did not work format the player in MSC mode. To do this, go to settings then to USB MODE then change it to MSC and then connect the player to the computer. After connecting the player to the computer ti will be detected as a removable disk drive. Right click on it then choose FORMAT make sure the file system is FAT32. THen after the format is done. Chnage the mode back to MTP then transfer a song using rhapsody. If all else fails using the windows mediaplayer program. Here are the instructions on using the windows media player program.

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.

Mp3 wont start up


I've just read your problem and it was a couple of days ago and it may have been fixed but if not this could be because your mp3 players boot up files have corrupted or unreadable that's why your harddrive was making a funny noise because it was trying to read the files but was unsuccessful.

To resolve this problem you will have to format your mp3 player unforturnetly, to do this there are 2 way's the first one is formatting it using the software that came with it, if you've already tryed that way but still was unsuccessful follow this other way below:

First connect your mp3 player to the computer once you've done that click on "Start" then go to "My Computer" look for your mp3 player on there it's usally named under something called "Removable Disk", now when you've found it right-click on it then click on "Format", allow format to complete then unplug your device and have another go see if the problems be resolved.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems just leave a comment on this page and i will get back to you a.s.s.p.

Did you format it properly?

Usually MP3 Players are to be formatted with the FAT32 File System. This can be easily done on Windows.
Simply connect the Mp3 Player to your computer via the USB. Then Windows should be able to detect it just fine. Go to My Computer and right clock on the new device (that is the MP3 Player) and select "Format".
Format as FAT32 and try again.

PS: You may want to backup all data (if that is possible) before you attempt this Format thing.
