technika mp3

  CiderBob 00:12 28 Dec 2005

I have a technika mp3 player from tesco 256 mb. It has been okay and I have 50 songs in it. I put it in my lap top tonight and it wants to format the mp3 player and it can't find the files. It has been okay for 2 weeks and not had a problem until now. Can any one help? I am running XP home on all my pcs.

I bought one of those,great for £10!
Is it ok in your pc but not working on your laptop?
Is it playing any files?

I used to rip a cd to windows media player files,plug in my mp3 player and put the files into it. I could also view the files in my computer but if I try now, I get the message....The disk in drive E is not formatted. Do you want to format it now?....I can play the file alredy on the player, but cannot view and update them on my computers. I have also tried on my main computer but same thing.

Use the search forum box at the top of the page, there have been several threads on this mp3 player today.

The other link didn't help so I bit the bullet and formatted it. It works okay now so I guess when this happens, all you can do is reformat. Luckily, I kept all my files in another folder on my other laptop. Thanks anyway.

Did you format it when you first used it,to wipe the demo?

I've cracked it
I have finally worked out how to use my techika mp3. Firstly I downloaded the files into My Music and then used the windows media player. Go to copy CD or device - i then right clicked on my music file highlighted copy to device and it worked up in the windows media. Where it says items on device highlight your removable disk ( mine was J) and then press the red copy button and hey presto it works!!
Good luck
