The simply steps to reformat your mp3 player:

1.If you haven't figured out how to hook it up to your computer, then simply take the USB cord that was given to you and plug it into your computer and then the other end to your mp3 player.

2.Wait for the plug and play to take place; you'll notice the "open folder" window pop up. Close this window

3.Go to your "My Computer" and you will notice an extra hard drive that will state drive F: G: or something in those letters and it will also say USB next to it.

4.Right click with your mouse on that hard drive icon. You will receive a list of options. Click on the format option with a left mouse click.

5.Next the reformat window will appear. Select the scroll down of the capacity to the maximum option available.

6.Next is the file system, you check what you're Windows is running by go to "My computer" and clicking on your C: drive once. At the side panel or the bottom, depending on which Windows you are running, it will display if you have a FAT, FAT32 or NTFS.

7.Select whichever file system you are running.

8.In the allocation unit size, I leave this to its default status.

9.Next, you want to check the check box that says "Quick Format" and click start. Once it has been completed you can close the window and you're mp3 player will be cleaned and reformatted.

Why cant i add files or remove from my transcend mp3 player?? computer is hanging if i connect it. and.. it is not getting formatted. files present are not displayed in the player.

It has a virus, could be, try reformatting the mp3 in dos, or better yet windows 98, simply the file system of you mp3 player is corrupted. after reformatting it in DOS mode, you can now reformat it in windows and then load songs.

I've got one of these. All worked fine then both my PCs now declare it a corrupt device and refuse to recognise it! Player still works fine, plays, charges, etc but no PC connection.

Tried the reset but appears to do nothing (player just carries on doing what it doing). Is there a procedure for reset that I'm not following correctly?
Help will be much appreciated!
