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.

My sansa fuse 4GB seems to have lost most of its internal memory.Although I've deleted everything from the unit , I'm left with only 35 MB free of 3.65 GB.How can I retrieve all the internal memory?


You should format the memory of your player but if you have important files on the device make back up of them before. You have two possibilities to do the formatting:
1. On the player use the device Format command under Settings and Format option.
2. Using your computer, and windows explorer select the drive of sansa and right click on and choose format. Type of it should be FAT.
Then you already should find all the internal memory in the device.

Good luck!

FORMAT ERROR IN MP3 PLAYER


if You are experiencing "Format Error" messages when adding or accessing music/videos on your player. this could be as a result of a corrupt memory region or not having the required or supposed memory size of the player(actual memory)
what you do you should format:
formating Ensures that what you have bought, is of the actual memory capacity.
. 1. You will not lose any firmware/theme related files.
2. You will not accidentally kill your player whilst doing so (unless you unplug or disconnect your player during the format process).
follow the step below to guide you

STEP 1
Back Up All Your Data Before Proceeding! This Guide Will Clear Everything In Your Player's Memory Chip!

Install MP3 Utilities, any version will do. It usually comes on the CD with the player, or you can download version 3.68
Here, or version 4.03 Here, or version 4.05 Here. Any one of these will do. The Disk Tool Utility is the same.
STEP 2
Start up MP3 Utilities Disk Tool.
You will be shown a screen like this:

Ensure that you select LOW Format Type.

Next, go to the Partition and Encrypt tab as shown below.

Now, slide the Partition Slider all the way to the Right.
You will notice the "Setting encrypted disk capacity" increases, it is normal.IMPORTANT.IF YOUR MP4 PLAYER IS LIKE 2GB OR MORE MAKE SURE THE PARTITION AND ENCRYPT TAB WHEN YOU INCREASE IT SAYS YOUR PLAYERS MEMORY.FOR EXAMPLE.IF YOU HAVE A 4GB MP4 PLAYER AND YOU ARE SLIDING THE PARTITION AND ENCRYPT TAB MAKE SURE THAT WHEN THE NUMBER INCREASES IT SAYS SOMETHING LIKE 4000MB.IF IT DOESN'T DO THIS DO NOT REPEAT DO NOT DO THIS ENTIRE PROCESS.

*NOTE* Ensure That You Do Not Click The "Set Username And Password", Leave It UNTICKED.

Next, click on Start to begin the format and partition process. You will be presented with a dialog box like below, click on Yes to proceed.

It will take a few moments for the process to complete. You will notice that your player would disconnect from the computer, and then re-connect back again.

You will be presented with the "Complete setting disk partition!" dialog box like below.

STEP 3
Go to My Computer and check that now you will two memory drives for your player. You might need to click Refresh or press F5.
One of which would be small (about 17MB), and the other would be the remaining memory capacity.
Do not worry if it does not appear, just continue to with the guide.
then go back to the Partition and Encrypt tab.
Slide the Partition slider to the Left, and click on Start.
repeat the process and the "Complete setting disk partition!" dialog box would appear.
Check in My Computer that now you will only have One single memory drive for your player. Right click on it and select Properties, this is your actual real memory capacity.

Now check your player's Memory Info for the correct memory display.
To access this, go to your player's SYS TOOL >> MEMORY INFO.
Your player should display the actual memory size that you have just checked.
Check if the percentage is at 0%. If it is, you can skip Step 4 below, and continue to Step 5.
STEP 4
If your player's Memory Info does not show 0%, you will need to complete the below procedure.
Right click on your player's memory drive, and select Format.
Now a new windows format screen would appear.

Select FAT in the File System dropdown menu.
If after completing Step 3, your player really does have 4GB of memory, then you need to select FAT32 instead. As FAT only supports upto 2GB.
Click on Start to begin on the format process.
A warning will appear for the format, click on OK to continue.
Wait for a few moments while Windows formats your player.
When completed, check your player's Memory Info again, it should display 0% now.
STEP 5
Once completed, start copying music/video files to your player and enjoy enjoy your player

To reformat the NWZ-S545 Walkman follow these steps found on page 92 of the operation guide:

Formatting memory [Format]
You can format the built-in flash memory of the player.

Note:
  • If the memory is formatted, all data (songs, videos, photos, etc., including sample data installed at the factory) will be erased. Be sure to verify the data stored in memory prior to formatting, and export any important data to the hard disk of your computer.
  • Be sure not to initialize (format) the built-in flash memory of the player using Windows Explorer. If you have formatted with Windows Explorer, format again using the player.
  • This function is only available in the pause mode.

  2. Select [Yes]. [All data will be deleted. Proceed?] appears. To cancel the operation, select [No].

Format external memory


Hi,

the problem can be solved.For the video not to be able to play might be due to the video file being corrupted or the memory card was not really formatted properly.

You can format the memory card again and try transferring the file into the memory card.If it does not work, try and use another device to format it.

If still it does not respond properly, then the memory card is corrupted and it needs to be replaced.

Have a nice day.
