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.

I have a trutech smp-1gbl and no drivers do you know where to get


Usually Windows Media Player 10 or above should be enough. For this model, there won't be any driver exclusively unless included with the player when shipped.

FLASH ERROR


Did the company provide a website with their documentation?- I cannot find their website with a Yahoo first search, and that is a bad sign - it means they are small, and their device is probably a custom-build- going to be hard to support.

Start simple - try plugging it into a different usb port on your computer.

A flash error is usually caused because Windows consider this device a msc/msd device, and it is set for MTP mode - see if there is a menu setting that will let you manually change it to an msc device. If there is no option, try uninstalling the mtp device in device manager.

If there was a manual or website provided for this device, it would help the community if you provide the link - we have no documentation for this device.
