When you selected format from the menu you have erased all the data in the internal memory. This is not someone you should need to do normally and is generally only provided in case the device gets corrupted or you want to delete all your music. I suggest you get hold of your user manual and read the part on how to reformat the internal memory. You may need to hook it up to a desktop or laptop computer to do this so have a USB lead handy.
Remove Mp3 player if you already connected to the USB port
Run the program (You should see something like: Please connect the device)
Hold down the Play button and connect the Mp3 Player to USB port
(Hold down the play button while you connect the device, you should see
a message (normally after 8 seconds) like: Initializing on YP-U2J Updater program screen)
After you hear the Windows chime "new device found" or the message
"Initializing" on YP-U2J Updater, you can now remove your hand from
Check the Format Data Area checkbox (By clicking the yes button, you will lose all of your data in your Mp3 player)
Click the "yes" button
Finally, click on the Start button (takes less than a minute). DO NOT REMOVE YOUR DEVICE
IMPORTANT: After updating the firmware, you MUST
disconnect the Mp3 player and turn it on. You will see a 20% message
for about 50 seconds and it will be restarted automatically.
keep in mind that if you sync your Mp3 player with a computer that has
a Windows Media Player 9 or 10, you should do these steps again
Download the latest firmware and flash the MP3 player. Make sure you download the correct firmware for your MP3 player and follow the instruction carefully.
