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 coby mp600-2g does not play video. After uploading it to my player and turning it on, all it does is freeze when selecting the video.  It shows the "play" symbol in the bottom left corner and then...


I had the same problem with playback of video with coby mp60-2g, and it took a couple of weeks to figure out. I wasted a lot of time installing video file converters, and trying to convert my wmv files to MTV,.... it wasn't necessary!
The Coby Media Manager software that comes with the device actually works for converting wmv files (for example) to mtv files. It's just a little confusing HOW IT WORKS. Unfortunately the 'Coby Media Manager User Guide' is very little help.
The key really is 'Synchronizing' your video to your player! But there's a little organizing of your files to do before-hand, which makes it easier when your ready to playback on your device.
For me it was easier to separate my audio files from my movie files in the 'Device' tab of the Coby Media Manger. This was the 'F:' of the Device content (middle third of the manager window) for me. I put the videos in the MOVIE.DIR folder. But you can't synchronize the video here. You must click on the 'Movies' tab on the left side of the manager window.
Under Movies, go to Library,... (now it gets a little confusing),.... immediately under 'Library', there is a 'Folder',....but that only shows what you have selected by clicking on the 'Video Folder', a little further down and slightly to the right.
So you must make your selection ('Import' video files and folders) by clicking on the 'Video Folder'! When you click on this Video Folder, you'll open a selection box, which offers
-Documents
-Music
-Pictures
-Videos
-C:\
-F:\
If you select only 'Videos', it will automatically select 'C:\', also.Which will import ALL of your videos on your C:\
If you select only 'F:\', it will only import the videos which you have put (as I suggested earlier) in the 'MOVIE.DIR' folder at the 'Device' tab.

NOW TO SYNCHRONIZE,....! (make sure you mp3 is connected to your computer).
You might notice, that if the device (mp600) already contains the file, then there will be a small icon which looks like the mp3, next to the file under the 'status' column.
BUT that doesn't mean that the mp3 will actually 'play' the video. It must ALSO be 'Synchronized', :o).
Once you've made it this far, Synchronizing is easy. Let's assume that you decided to Import all of the videos in C:\, and F:\ when you clicked on the 'Video Folder'.
Now if you go back up to 'Folders', and click on it ALL of your video files will be dislpayed. And the files which are already on your device will have the mp3 icon next to them. Also, when you clicked on 'Folders', additional sub- folders were displayed under the Folders icon.
The easy way to 'Synchronize', is to select the F: folder, with a 'right click',... which gives you the synchronize option,... clicking 'Synchronize' will synchronize-convert-copy all of the video files in the folder! Now, if you go back to the 'Device' tab and look at the video files, you'll see they have all been to converted to mtv files!
Now when you open your mp600, and arrow to 'Movies', you'll be able to play your videos!!

Scandisk Sansa Fuse giving a message to synchronize


Audio files from music subscriptino services come in several formats - Mp3, WMA, AAC, and sometimes WAV. The Rhapsody trial is for a subscription level that gives you the songs in WMA format. They have a license system on them called DRM protection. That is the problem with services that give you WMA files - once your subscription has expired, you cannot use the songs anymore, no matter how much you paid for them.

Your solution is to subscribe to Rhapsody's Mp3 Only service - it is more expensive, but you can continue to use the songs after your subscription has expired. Rhapsody offers several subscriptions - the only one that will solve your problem is the Mp3 Only service. Cheaper alternatives are more risky (virus-prone), but they include Limewire, Frostwire, and Morpheus - beware: all 3 of these services offer songs in multiple file formats - make sure that the songs you download are in mp3 format. Some ISP's will cut off your internet service if you use Limewire.

Synchronize to Rhapsody (or whatever music service you have)instead of to Windows Media Player.

Sansa e250 keeps saying "SYNCHRONIZE TO CONTINUE YOUR MUSIC SUBSCRIPTION"


Here's the deal with WMA files - once your subscription expires (or really,  the license on the WMA file expires) - you will have to renew your music service subscription or the song will no longer play on your device. 
Use Mp3 format songs - they'll never give you this problem.

Cannot synchronize my music subsceription


unfortunately, the mp3 player and the music svc do not always match up exactly - in this case, you will have to remove all songs and then try reloading them

Use mp3 format songs and you will never have this problem

You have automatic synchronization set up, and you will want to disable it (set up manual synchronization) in order to prevent this problem from occurring in the future.
Connect your Go Gear to the computer
Open Windows Media Player
Highlight the Sync Tab
Click on the little black arrow and pull down the drop down menu
Click on Set Up Sync
Uncheck the box that says "Automatically synchronzie the device..."
Then, Read Windows Media Player tutorial on ripping from CD to a device
Then,
Click on the Library Tab
Underneath the line that says Philips GoGear, clcik on the songs folder (or go to the Sync tab)
This will list all files on your device.
Left-click a file once - hit delete on your computer's keyboard.
Done.

My windows vista pc cannot find a driver for my wharfedale slmo 1 (mp3 player)


when i reinstalled my laptop i connected my mp3 player to it straight away and it installed the drivers for it and works fine now.

i think this problem may be due possibly to another application or unecessary vista updates ... i only ever install important ones now and not recommended.
