Hi... I must be the 1,000,000th person to create a profile just to ask for help. I'm ignorant about many things. If that reason satisfies you then please do help me. I noticed this comment regarding a discussion for USB MASS STORAGE DEVICES: "check what format the drives are (fat, raw, fat32 etc), btw it is normal for teh external hdd to be recodnised as a hdd because it doesnt use a flash chip to store stuff." I have an MP3 Player with 8 GB of storage but I haven't been able to read it's contents on the computer (I don't want to format it because the last time I did it it changed it to 1 GB capacity). I read the contents of the MP3/MP4 device ONCE... and I even saved many files in it, including viewable movies and songs. But NOW, suddenly, no computer wants to read it... it always asks for formatting. The only thing I know is that it's a RAW FILE FORMAT DEVICE. Does anyone with knowledge about this wants to help me? How can I see its contents again? Please help me. THANKS. - OK COMPUTER.
