Temporary Sticky. Formatting your MP3 player.
by R. Proffitt - 3/25/07 9:03 AM
Given the number of posts asking about formatting a MP3 player I thought I'd share some advice.
1. Don't do it.
2. Some models shrink in MB when you do that. Hint? They are units that you read about in this article -> http://forums.cnet.com/5208-7595_102-0.html?forumID=71&threadID=159124&start=30
Let me be blunt. If you have some flea market, _Bay unit that does this please go get your money back. The boards are flooded with people asking for help to get the memory back. This will never happen since the memory wasn't there to begin with.
3. READ THE MANUAL.
After fixing more than a few I've come down to simple problems such as not checking the manual. For instance in one mode you must have the folder Media and the other mode the files go in the top folder. Save others from your questions and check that manual.
4. Does my MP3 Player work with iTunes? (It's not from Apple.)
No. For now and today this question has a short and clear answer. I'll remove this post and answer if this changes.
Hope this helps you avoid some pain,
