I have an Omnitech MP3 player (model #16737). This morning I tried to transfer songs to it and I received a window that stated that the drive was not formatted and asked me if I would like to format it. I have not received this notice before. I have had this player for over a year and it has worked perfectly until now.
I rebooted to see if that might solve the issue but it didn't.
Seeing no other alternatives, this time I chose to reformat the disk only to be told that the disk could not be reformatted.
Next, I connected the player to another computer and everything worked perfectly.
After this, I connected another player of the same model to my computer and it also worked perfectly.
Then, I switched the transfer cable from the other computer to mine to see if that would solve the issue. It did not.
I also tried using different USB ports on my computer but that did not solve the issue either.
So it appears that the issue only happens when I connect MY player to MY computer.
The Omnitech website offered no assistance on this matter; I'm hoping someone here can help.
I don't know if it makes a difference or not but I am using Windows XP SP 3. The other computer I used to troubleshoot was also using Windows XP SP 3.
Thank you in advance for any assistance you can offer in this matter.
