Yes, I had the same issue with mine too. Actually, the disk is write protected. You must unwrite protect it first. The instructions on how to un write protect it are on this site. (note: some may not be useful, it didn't work for mine...) http://www.fixya.com/support/t248942-remove_write_protect_usb_flash_drive

How do you reform a Sansa E280E MP3 player. video files stored is corrupted and unable to be deleted through normal means.


Hello there...

To format your mp3 player please do the following

Connect one end of the USB cable to your player and the other end to an open USB port on your computer. Your computer will recognize the new device.

Double-click "My Computer" on the desktop. You will see your Sansa e280 player's icon listed as a removal disk together with other hard drives on your computer.

Right-click the Sansa e270 icon. Scroll down and click "Format." When the format window opens, click "Start." The formatting will erase any current information on the drive. Depending on the memory capacity, it could be a quick process or take a little longer.


I hope this solves your problem,,,

Can't complete nextar mp3 formatting


hi sir

#1
Insert your ( memory card , flash disk , cellphone , .... ) into your computer.
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

DISK ERROR WHEN I TRY TO USE MP3


I had the same issue and just connected the device to my computer USB connection and performed a quick format on the drive and it now works. You will be warned that reformatting the drive will erase all the data, which will happen. But you can simply reload your music and be back in business... Rod

Two problems with my mp3 player


Hi Mina. An internal memory corruption might have occurred on your player, and would need to format your player through "Disk Management" (I'm assuming you have Windows XP or Vista). Here's how: (1) First, set your player to MSC mode by navigating your menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode Choose "MSC" (2) Open "Computer Management" by right-clicking on the "My Computer" icon, then selecting "Manage" (3) Your "Computer Management" window should be divided into 2 panes. On the left pane, click on "Disk Management" (4) On the upper right pane of "Disk Management", you should find the drive letter corresponding to your Sansa E250. The lower section also contains the drive # pertaining to your E250. Right-click on either drive letters pertaining to the E250 and select "Format". Follow the on-screen prompts. Make sure that the "Quick Format" checkbox remains un-checked. In general, Disk Management is more the effective tool for formatting your E250 and assuming the format processing completed without any errors, you may now use your player as you would. You may want to set the mode of your MP3 player back to "MTP" (if you're going to download subscription songs -- otherwise, just leave it in MSC mode) by navigating your menu as follows: Menu >> Settings >> USB Mode Choose "MTP" In case you get the error "Unable to Complete Format" or the format process is unable to complete, you may want to call the SanDisk Tech Support guys for more advanced troubleshooting (I call `em when I'm at my wit's end lol) I hope it works :)
