Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from or
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
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.
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.

I need to know how to get my player to play my DVD on it. I need HELP!!!!!

First of all there is no DVD drive on the compact Digital Media Player second it only supports file formats like MPEG4, AVI, WMV. DVD is MPEG2. So if you want to play your DVD movies you will have to convert them into one of the above formats using a computer before you load it on to your Media Player. You can download this software for free from the site given below.

Try Resetting it. At the bottom of the right side of the unit, there is a hole, which states "Reset", take a safety-pin, a needle or whatever, and push it in the hole, till you feel you pressed a button. Wait 30 seconds and then turn it on again! Try It! (p.s. tell me if it worked!)

get a small paperclip. unwind the outer part so you have a straight piece sticking out at a 90degree angle. insert the end of the straight paperclip into the small hole on the lower right side of the player ~ this is the RESET button. it does not delete any content; it just interrupts power. the only thing you will have to do is reset your TIME settings. this SHOULD work. you don't have to, but you can re-create the 'MicRecord' Music' and 'Playlists' directories on the ROOT of the player. re-copy your music into the MUSIC directory.
