Sounds like a format error on the storage. The bad news is the tunes stored on it are probably gone.
Do you have a mini USB B cable that you can connect to a PC? With this you can reformat the internal memory and the SD card.
Good luck.

Device keeps saying format error,cannot play music


Format error means the file type is incorrect. you may have downloaded MP4 or WAV files. They need to be MP3 I imagine and be in te same bitrate as the player. The player probably came with software for converting files to the proper format.

you should have been provided with a cd with a software for upgrading your device.format your device using windows, (remember dont use quick format) and then install the software from the cd.connect the device and then try to upgrade it. if your system notifies that it isnt able to upgrade or if it says system file error, generate the system file by recording a voice and saving it.then connect it to the pc and upgrade. hope your problem is tackled.have a nice day

I am getting a File system error when switching it on and i can't format the device in windows and on cmd through FAT32


I had the same problem and I am sorry to tell you that it is a hard drive error. I think from memory it was actually a fault within the system, I can't recall, but mine was under warranty so it was fixed.

You need to contact jnc customer support to get it fixed. In Australia try 02 9264 8677.

Hope you can get it fixed.

How to format raw sandisk 250 hard drive with window xp.i couldnot use this mp3 player after i used this device to transfer files from one computer to the other.after transferring the file,i deleted the...


Alright, plug the player in with your USB cable.

Open "My Computer" and find in on the list of drives and CD-Roms. It will be called something like "Audio Device" or "Removable Storage Device". Make sure you find the correctly icon for the player.

Right click the player then select the format option. You'll probably want to use a FAT32 format as it is the usual format for MP3 players and flash drives of the like. This will totally erase any files on the player, so be forewarned before you complete this.

Raw file system is basically the media in it's standard state. All the information is recorded as zero's and this is how your computer is seeing it. It is either reporting incorrectly due to bad file system error, or simple was formatted incorrectly.

Give that a try, let me know what happens. :) Hope it helps.

Incorrect format


The songs that you loaded onto the player are not in the correct format - iTunes, DRM-encrypt. WMA are not allowed, for instance. Convert everything to mp3 format. It is asking you to reformat the player because it wants you to delete the wrong-formatted songs off the player. I would check your user manual to find the best way to reformat.

In general, though, 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.

C150 MP3 Player Problem

Did you format it properly?

Usually MP3 Players are to be formatted with the FAT32 File System. This can be easily done on Windows.
Simply connect the Mp3 Player to your computer via the USB. Then Windows should be able to detect it just fine. Go to My Computer and right clock on the new device (that is the MP3 Player) and select "Format".
Format as FAT32 and try again.

PS: You may want to backup all data (if that is possible) before you attempt this Format thing.
