Hi,

You will not be able to format the c drive if it is the drive containing your operating system. You will have to remove the drive from your computer, insert it in your grandson's computer & install Windows on it using a Windows CD. At the beginning of the installation the hard drive will be formatted before it proceeds installing Windows afresh.

Let me know if you would like any further assistance.
Best wishes,
Graeme

The drive is formated to fat32 and i want it to be formated to ntsf so i can upload files bigger then 4G, how can i do it safely?


You will lose all the data on the drive during formatting so copy it all to your computer before format. Once done, with the drive plugged in simply
  • go to "Computer" / "My Computer" right click on the external drive and select format.
  • Select ntfs for the file system
  • Give it a volume name if you like and just do "Quick Format"

Comment back if you need additional help.

I can't format my pen drive how can I format my pen drive


Hi,
there may be a small sliding switch that could be set to "Protect" ie the drive is protected from formatting, or deleting or even adding files.
Change the position and then re-insert the drive into your computers USB port. Go to My Computer, right click the pen drive and select "Format"
FAT32 format will give you a drive that is readable and compatible with Windows 95, Win98, Win2000, XP etc.
You can format in NTFS format but it will only be readable by Win2000,XP or Vista or Win7.
Cheers,
Steve

My grandson got a GPX ML648b mp3 player for Christmas. On Christmas day we tried to download songs. After 24 songs it would not loan any more. So I deleted the songs and tried again. It would only download...


If this problem occurs then your ML648B needs to be formatted.

1. Connect your ML648B to your computer with Windows XP or later.
2. By default your computer will recognize ML648B as GPX MTP Device. Press the POWER button from top of your ML648B, to change it to USB mode connection. You will also see USB on the screen of ML648B.
3. ML648B will now mount 2 drives, one as Tools (as CD-Drive) and second as Removable Disk (Drive) – under My Computer on your Windows Desktop.
4. Right click your mouse and then select the Format option. When the Format Removable Disk window appears select the Start button to start formatting your MP3 player.
