    I am using the SonicStage client and downloads are in the correct format. I know this because I have another Sony NW-E105 player that is working fine (having twins has an advantage). Screen displays "Format Error" at all time, even when all audio files are deleted.

I struggled with the "FORMAT ERROR" message on my NE-E005 for a while. Eventually I went in to the advanced menu and reformatted the player from the initialise sub menu. Obviously that meant I had to transfer all my files from scratch but at least it made the player work again! Going forward, always make sure you transfer files in ATRAC format and that should prevent the problem from occurring again.

This is what you do, unplug the mp3 player from your computer, then , while no playing songs go into the settins and look for advancded, the format menu will show and just click ok like normal. That should work.

Format error means your playlist that you have downloaded are not incompatible with the player, you have downloaded a wrong format. Read the instruction what kind of format your player supports, then convert your playlist to the right format.

Hey.
Well first, some of the songs that you put in, well...Sony Co. cannot transfer directly, so you would have to use their Sonicstage program, aka the converting button.
Like most Sony mp3 players, you need to use Sonicstage to put songs in the mp3 player.

For the Sony NW-E405, simply go to the Transfer menu at the top right of the program, (along where the My Library button is) and select the song. In the middle of the screen should be arrows along with a suitcase looking button. Click the luggage button and a screen should pop out. It should have two choices, a Standard Transfer Mode and a Specified bit rate transfer mode. Click the Specified one and select either the 105kbps (ATRAC 3) or the 132kbps (ATRAC 3) for great sound quality and small memory usage. The others are too big or too bad for sound quality. It should now work.

Now the mp3 player should be able to read it, since it is now in ATRAC 3 version, not the mp3 version.

Hopefully this solution helped.
Have a nice day!

Unit Does Dispaly Menu


maybe you have doomboot virus! or claymor virus! thats why your mp3 is rejecting all programs! remove the virus with twister series! then you can download first the anti virus! then you can scan the virus in your mp3.

I had the same problem and struggled with it for some time. I forgot the format feature on the device itself and kept formatting from my pc. This won't work.

The solution:

1. Unhook your device from the pc by pulling out the USB cable.
2. Click the "Menu" button 1 time (found on the back of your NW-E105 player).
- This will show "Display"
3. Click the " |<< " button 3 times (the button to rewind track).
- This will show "Format"
4. Click the Play/Stop button 1 time.
- This will show "Format: N"
5. Click the " |<< " button again 1 time.
- This will show "Format: Y>
6. Click the Play/Stop button 1 time (wait for "really?" prompt), click it again.

Now your device is formatted and will play the files you add to it.

IRiver E10 - Error screen - Emergency USB


Hi There,

There are 2 conditions related to the e10 Emergency USB message.

1. If your PC does NOT recognise the iriver as a USB device/drive, there is an issue with the Hard Drive.
2. If your PC DOES recognise the iriver as a USB device/drive and can read the files, there is an issue with the Circuitry in your e10.

In either case, your iriver needs to be returned to the manufacturer. If in warranty you can get this repaired at no cost (of course).

DEVICE HAS'' READ ACCESS ERROR-CANNOT READ FROM HARD DISK''


If you have problems with the file system on your Gmini you can try to fix it using the DOS utility, check disk (chkdsk). Do the following; ? Make sure external AC adapter is powering the Gmini. ? Quit all running applications. ? Properly connect the Gmini to your computer ? Wait patiently (up to 5 minutes) for Windows XP to show the local drive as mounted. ? Open a DOS window. Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. ? At the prompt, type chkdsk e: /f. Use e: or f: or whatever drive letter is representing your Gmini. The /f argument tells the program to automatically fix errors. ? Be patient, this may take a while. ? When it is finished, exit the DOS Window and properly disconnect the Gmini from your computer. Try using the device now and see if makes any difference. If not you could try formatting it using a DOS prompt.
