Re: Can't be formatted
If Rhapsody, or Windows Media Player was open and "using" the device, it cannot format.
Try closing those first.
If not, you can format it in Computer management.
Right click on My Computer, select Manage. On the left side, select Disk Management. On the right side your device will be listed at the top. Right click on it and select format. Do NOT select "Quick Format".
If the device does not show, disconnect your device, change the mode and try again.
Best of Luck.

plug the card into your computer with a usb adapter or if you have an sdcard slot use that. then right click on My computer or computer if your using windows 7. click manage, click on Disk Management, under storage. You should see your SD card there. Right click and choose FORMAT.
ok do you want to delete individual file or clean it completely. if the memory card has gone corrupt the easiest solution to find out whether its gone faulty or just corrupt would be to format the memory card but this would mean losing all that is on there. to format your card 1. insert it in your computer or laptop 2. go to my computer and you should see your memory card or it may say removable disk :? (? being a letter which it will name it) 3: right click on card and select format from the drop down menu 4: select quick format and click next and all being well should be clean and ready to use again if it fails the format it generally shows that the memory card has gone faulty
Well formatting IS deleting all the files on your sandisk. I figured that out the first day i had it. So if you're formatting when all your songs are on there, then that's your problem. If not, then i dont know what to tell you.
Reformat 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
I had the same problem In My Sandisk Sansa, and the way I fixed it is the following:
Plug your player in your computer in MSC mode (On your player, go to settings, then USB and choose MSC)
Then in "my computer", right-click on the player icon and go to "properties".
In "properties" go to "tools" and in the first option, which is "error checking", click on "check now".
In check disk options, check both "automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recorevy of ba sectors".
It's going to take a few minutes (phase 1 and phase 2 will be displayed). Wait until it is complete.
When it is done, close the "properties" window and right-click on the icon of the player and click on "format"!
It should say format complete and the player should be then be ready to synchronize files again!
Now Enjoy That
