After spending hours yesterday dealing with the freezing, then not reading songs etc. I woke up this morning and decided to reformat it again. Now it works fine.
I’m working on a MAC. Yesterday I first had to do the trick of pressing the middle button with switch on hold just to get it to read it. Then I reformatted it using disk utility. Then I reformatted it using itself. At this point it was reading the drive but when I would disconnect it, it would freeze. Turning it off then on would unfreeze it but never allow it to recognize that music was put on it. So today I just reformatted it again, and it all worked fine. I added some songs. But, this time when I unplugged it from the computer, it didn’t freeze. Instead it said something like refreshing. And, it is working. Thank God because I’m I can’t spend any more time on this.
