Files that are transferred in one mode can't be seen on the player in Explorer. That's no doubt what happened there. You need to pick a mode, either MSC or MTP, and stay with it. I learned to avoid Autodetect quite a while back. It can and will change transfer modes with no notification. That's the source of dozens of "what happened to my files?" posts here and in other forums.

While I'll format a player during the original setup I avoid it unless it's absolutely necessary after that. Formatting uses more write cycles than just deleting files does. The number of write cycles is supposed to a very high number but I can't see using them up without a good reason.
