    my sis has a 1gb flash mp3 player

    it wasnt working properly, so my sister asked me to look at it
    it was really mucked up ie i copied and pasted fiels to one folder and it appeared in another folder for some reason, so i just decided to format it
    however when i formatted it, it changed from 1gb to 500mb!!! yeh really annoying

    anyone have any ideas on how i might be able 2 recover the space that was lost?

    just to let you know: i formatted it in fat32 and i cant defragment it either

    did it come with any special software? because my 256mb creative one has to be formatted by special software.

    Try looking on the manufacturers website to see if it available for download.
