My mp3 player (sony) had a virus and I had to format it by windows to clean the virus. Now the virus is cleaned and I put some music in it, but it's not work. Whenever I press the play button it shows the word format error or walkman. How can I do? Please help me.

try checking if it has viruses.. if it has then clean it first, reformat then try transferring songs again. if still nothing happens, then maybe your sony players hard drive is corrupted. 1) Eject your mp3.
2) Make sure you have installed all the installers or if not try finding an installer for that kind of mp3 player because maybe you have deleted the installer of your mp3 mistakenly .
3) Rebuild your mp3 library.
if this doesn't work then try consulting people on sony.
Probable cause. Computer Virus, Disk Space Error, Disk Space damage. Try to formatting it using the settings in your Walkman or in the computer you can format the disk of your Walkman. after you have it done, try to do your task and if it's still not working contact the service center ASAP.
if your device accepts videos, you have to make sure they are in the proper format for your player. Mp3 devices usually accept videos in .wma, .avi, etc..
you need to know what format(s) it will accept and then convert them. I recommend using media convert ( http//media-convert.com ). its online and free, so no software/viruses. upload your file, wait for the conversion, and download your file. I use it all the time for my iPod!
Best of luck!
guys u need to keep one thing in mind while connecting players to pc.. make sure ur pc is free from virus.. its a must... its because of virus that can even ruin entirely ur players... do a update from the sony site to solve all the problems..
in the mp3 format itself ter are many types....actual mp3 song would occupy about les than 6-9mb space if its morre...try to convert it ..........the space reduction may be due to virus.....try formatting it
