This error means that the player's partition's got messed up. Is there a way you can force the player into Disk Mode? If so, try that. If it works, the computer would recognize it. You can then right click on the drive and select "Reformat". That should fix everything.

    You may need to re-download the firmware after this as well. You should be able to get it from the website of the company that makes your mp3 player.

Mp3 player keeps saying "no files" when i unplug

I had the same problem. I formatted it to FAT format and it started working again. It has to be FAT. FAT 32 and EXFAT don't work.

I finally figured out that when I format my Nano Plus, I have to select "FAT" from the "File System" drop-down list (even though the manual says you can select "FAT 32"). When I selected anything other than "FAT", Windows could not complete the format and the player would not get past the start-up logo.

RCA H100A reading fat error, computer not recognizeing the player F5 will not refresh. Ditto from above...that's what I get for going cheap, I guess! RCA H100A reading FAT error!

i believe that is a formating error basically telling you the player need to be reformatted and then you will have to reload all music on it. i dont have this particular player. i am just going by best guesstimate. dont hold me to it contact the manufactures website and they should be able to provide more details.

Phillips GoGear 4Gb - Can't sync songs onto player...

This is only a makeshift solution.
I use a philips gogear sa52xx and found out, that deleting the drivers, then reconnecting the Player and pressing F5 in the explorer allows me to normally access the philips gogear sa52xx for about 30 seconds. After that, out of nowhere the drivers will sever and the Code 10 error appears. So, another disconnect - deinstall of the driver - reconnect - F5 in the explorer until the Player appears and then sync. The proplem is, that this works best (maybe only) with mp3 files...
So convert your music files into mp3 first, than do above steps for drag 'n' drop.
Usually, you need to do the whole procedure 2 times for a CD, sometimes 3.

You'll probably have to reformat your Sansa. First switch the hold button on your sansa to lock and then plug into your computer. Pull up My Computer and right click on your MP3 player. One of the options should be Format, left click. The File Systems drop down box likely says FAT32, change this to FAT and then click Start. This will erase everything on your player so save any recordings you may want to keep.
