Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I had to format my mp3 because it wouldnt run but it wont even let me put music on it now
Beleive it or not this is how i fixed my venturer digital audio player sounds bizarre but its 100 per cent how i did it ...
the story goes like this i have had my player for about 2 years and never had a problem with it until yesterday after putting some more music on it i turned pc off and went to plug it into my stereo... nothing worked ...got system error turned it off only for it to turn itself on again ... connected it back up to pc and it kept saying disk is unformatted but wouldnt let me format it (i should point out i had over 32 gb of music on it ...
after about two hours of frustration and reading forums talking to the advice centre who to be honest were as usual as a chocolate fire guard... (kept telling me to turn it off and on reset etc...) which none of it worked at all ... i got totally fed up with the fact i lost all my music folders .... i lost my temper ...
i literally unplugged it from pc and threw it at the wall ...
devastated the fact it no longer worked and i lost everything ...
after about 30 mins i decided to turn it on ( dont ask me why i did this )
to my surprise it turned on and the screen lit up venturer and then went to the main menu
i then plugged into pc and to my surprise everything worked ok
i have lost my music but luckily i backed a lot of it up on mp3 discs... ive actually lost about 10 gb but to be honest thats better than loosing everything
not sure if it will stay working or not but i shall keep you all updated right now i am re putting everything back on to my player
please note that it seems any music you install needs to be scanned first .. im not sure if it was a virus from paid for services or something else .. but it seems that swift shock did something to the player ..
i promise you all that this is a very true fact and im not making it up ..
i just hope it stays working

Sometimes formatting can delete key system files, and these files will have to be re-added. Go to the manufacturer's website and see if they have a repair or recovery tool that will let you add the missing files. sometimes a firmware upgrade will add the missing files, but sometimes it will not. What is your model # and manufacturer name?
