I have an mp3 player and it gave an I/O device error. the manufacturer told me to reformat it.

The problem is that when i go to my computer and right click the stupid menu doesn't come up. It takes forever as if its doing something but then goes back to normal and the menu never comes up. Once or twice by fluke the menu came up but then when i clicked format again nothing.
If anyone can help, i'd really appreciate any advice. I was also trying to look for like an automatic formatter or something where i could tell it which disk drive and it would just format it maybe that might help. but don't know the chances considering when i say "eject this media" on the sidebar it has the same behaviour stays busy for a while and then no result.

It's a Foxda mp3 player.

Cannot format from menu on the actual mp3 player because when i turn it on all it does is flash the reformat message at me.

Also, there was a disk included with it but all it contains is a driver and nothing else.

okie i think this should work so let's give it a shot. Connect your mp3 player to your computer via the usb cable or datab cable it came with. Now go to my computer and look for a removeable drive letter sometimes it's H or G depending on your partitions and other drives, in other words look for a drive letter which wasnt there before you plugged in your mp3 player. Right click on this drive and select format (if it gives you that option). A small window will popup. Checkmark the quick format box and press Start. This should erase everything on your mp3 player and hopefully give a new life to your mp3 player as well. Let me know if this works or not :)
