How to reformat mp3 player......i cant see any details when i connect my mp3 to pc...pc said need to reformat first before use


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.

I have a freesyle audio MP3 waterproof black model. I love it and it has been so dependable. My husband decided to give me his, so he reformatted it and although it shows it is loading music, there is...


The most likely answer is that your husband formatted it NTFS, which is probably the default for your computer. In general, MP3 players use FAT32.

Connect it up to your computer, and right click, and choose "Properties...". What file system does it say? If it says NTFS, then this is the problem, and you should be able to reformat it again, but using FAT32.

Mp3 has crashed


Hi! When you repaired your mp3 player you formatted it with ntfs file system but your player needs fat32 file system. Don't be upset just plug in your mp3 player again with your PC and reformat it by changing the file system to FAT 32. Hope this helps.

Incorrect Format Please Reformat the Player


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.

Formating problems


The H140 needs to be formatted as a fat32 file system for the players firmware to recognise it. To check which file system you have formatted to connect your player to your pc and go to > my computer >right click on your player > then click on properties. It will tell you what file system you have. Windows will only format to ntfs file systems, so if you need to reformat you will need to download Swissknife http://www.compuapps.com/download/Swissknife/swissknife.htm (its free :-) )and use it to reformat your player.
