Re: how do i reformat the internal media?
You can format MP3 Player 2 ways:
1) Plug it into a computer and when it comes up as a disk drive in my computer, right click on it and click format. Choose the filesystem as FAT (not NTFS).
2) Format from the MP3 Player Disk Tool or options.
If this doesn't do the trick then get back to me.

well this happened to me too it means your device is corrupted it happened to me because i never pressed remove safly when i took it out of my PC. This button is on the bottom right of your PC but only when you have a mp3 plugged in. I have now idea how to reformat but i can find out next weekend or this one coming up. talk to me this friday coming up.
Wow! FAT16! I wonder why it would want you to do that?
Here's how you do it on a Windows-based OS:
Connect mp3 player to computer
Double-click My Computer
Right-click the icon of the mp3 player
When it gives you a choice between FAT and FAT32, choose FAT
Offhand, the message indicates that the Sansa is requesting that the internal storage be reformatted using the PC. This would require that the Fuze be connected to the PC through USB. Thereafter, the computer would recognize it as an external storage device. Steps required to format:
connect Sansa Fuse to USB of PC;
double click on "My Computer";
it would show probable as an "E";
right click on the "E" and click on "Format...";
a new window will pop up;
under the "File system" pls select FAT or FAT 32;
verify that "Quick Format" is un-checked;
click on Start button.
Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.
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. -Tha Mp3 Doctor
