Accidentally i format my player instead of card.

I noticed when that my clip sport, out of the box, was formatted as a super-floppy. It was not formatted as hard drives are, with partitions, but as one large disk. Using the player's own format option partitioned the disk creating a separate partition (drive) for the user files and configured that with the "expected" files and directories (such as the \MUSIC directory). That probably keeps the OS protected, away from the user partition. If you can use the player's own menus to reach its formatting command use that. If not ... well, SanDisk support suggested I reformat the drive using Windows since when I got it it had a corrupt file system. That was probably wrong. Luckily I was on Linux and could not follow their directions so they suggested that I use the player's own formatting command instead. It is probably not a good idea to format it until you run the player's formatting command to partition it first so you only have access to the user partition/directory. It is probably a good idea to back up the free stuff on the player (if you want it) and any stuff you added and use the player's formatting command when you start with it and only use the player's own formatting command. Almost every USB stick I have ever used came partitioned (one came as a super-floppy - so I partitioned that myself with one big partition). So ... I hope you can access the player's own formatting command
