Do NOT format until you've made a backup of your unit's contents. Use Explorer, not Home. If not sure how, see here:
Now then, once you are sure the backup has been done, you can format the unit by right clicking it in My Computer under removable drives and one option is format. You want fat32 and do NOT want quickformat.
But, how do you know 3 files are corrupt?

unclick the Quick format option and it will do a full format.

I've also tried to format my totmtom xl iq routes device (win xp). But it doesn't work.. When I start formatting it goes properly, but when it ends, the XP tells me: it can not finish the formatting... What can be the solution?

I try it now. It is going now but I have 9 format error lines. (eg: Format Error occurred at offset 1,703,936 (1117)). I don't know if it will go to end or not, we will see
