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 palm pixi wont let me add contacts to my phone. New or add to existing


Bring up your contacts card, change the preferences 'default account' to whatever else you have there (just check it -google, etc) then back to Palm Profile, then throw card away.. should work after that. But know, that it'll probably still happen intermittently. Best thing is to do a backup (BACKUP icon in your Launcher menu - just so you're current) then do a FULL ERASE. DEVICE INFO icon in your Launcher and follow directions for a FULL ERASE. Then when your phone reboots, it'll ask to sign in to your palm profile to get all of your data back. If you have pics, etc, they will be erased so if you need them, hook your phone to your computer and drag anything you might need before you do the Full Erase.

What steps will be done in order for me to reformat my computer?


1) All computer has BIOS ( Basic input/output system). Here, you can set up how your PC will run. It is a blue colored full screen with different tabs like general, exit, devices and many more. Go to BIOS by simply hitting del (delete) continuously after restarting your computer.

2) Once in BIOS, look for the booting set up. Listed there are the devices which computer normally boots. ( Harddisk, CD-rom, Floopy Disk and Network)

3) Place the CD-Rom as the first boot and see to it that the bootable CD of Operating system you want is inserted in the CD-Rom. Then Place harddisk as the second booting device. Third and fourth booting devices are not usually important.

4) Save the changes and Exit. This will restart your computer automatically.

5) When your computer restarts wait until you see a message saying.........
Boot to CD........<----if this showed up hit any key to boot to CD. This will make your computer refer to the CD.

6) They will ask you if you want to delete or to create a new partition. For me just delete the partition and do not create anymore partitions. This will only slows your computer down.

7) After Deleting the partitions, they will ask you if you wanted to format you PC. There are 4 choices in there:

a. Quick format (FAT)
b. Format (FAT)
c. Quick format (NTSF)
d. Format (NTSF)

Choose the format either NTSF or FAT. Sometimes quick formatting result to corruption of some files.

8) The computer will copy the contents needed from the CD to your PC and installs it. Windows will appear but i know when you see one you can understand what to do. It will just ask for date and time and user name if you want to.

9) After the installation is complete the computer will automatically restart.

10) Once restarted, set the display in your choice. You can do anything now. Congratulations, you now can reformat

MP3 AUDIO/VIDEO PLAYER NOT WORKING


You may be missing a critical windows update, or the firmware needs upgrading (or both).
Go to: update.microsoft.com for the updates (specifically, you need to convert this device to an MTP device, rather than an MSD device; msd is the old standard; MTP is the new).
Go to: http://support.rcaaudiovideo.com/manual.aspx?product=89 for the firmware upgrade.

I need help with my mp3


Try formatting the device in My Computer. My Computer>Device Name>Right click on the device and select format. This will erase everything and you should be able to start over. You should not fill the device all the way up, as it need some free space to operate properly. You can add to this question for additional support. Best of Luck.
