    Theres always a CD which u get with the flash player...The CD has a utility for formatting da disk....And the filesystem used is dufferent, so u HAVE to use da software provided by the manufacturer...Try to procure it aditya & format ur flash drive using it...

    even i got the same thing and have the same problem with that player.
    these players are formatted by the manufacturer and the memory is compressed so when you re-format it it reduces to half
    so i will suggest you not to do any thing to your player and enjoy 256 mb as you can end up destroying that too
    also see "http://www.s1mp3.org"

    shhhh!!!!! on a sniper point
    Earlier there was a thread similar to this. Actually cheap ones only has half or even less capacity and shows a big value by flashing it or some other s/w means. If u dun have formatted also u couldn't use the mem greater than the real one nd trying to use them causes s/w problems nd we try to formatt it nd the truth comes out. Its same with all cheap flash based MP3s.
