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.

Incorrect format, reformat player

i've had that same problem, i called the tech number and they emailed me some program to download. It fixes the problem but the problem doesn't go away. It still happens and i have to hook up the USB and use the program to fix it. Which can be a pain in the ass, all in all, this product is not worth it. I shouldn't have to "repair" something every time i want to use it. And it turns out mp3 players only have a 15 day return policy at Walmart. Which would have been nice to know since on day 16 it crapped the bed. *sigh* lesson learned.

Won't format

You can try a factory reset if it's available on the player or try the manufacturers web site as they may well have a formatting programme online and downloadable.

My ilo tells me to reformat it.!? How do I do that?!

Formatting is pretty easy. Go to a computer, plug it in, then right click and it should have an option to format. Unfortunatly, it will delete any saved information on it. Hope it Works
