Make sure that it is fully charged and then if there is an option for usb mass storage on the player, select that. When you hook it up on the pc, press Start, then Run, then type compmgmt.msc
It will open up the Computer Management program and then select Disk Management. If you see the drive that corresponds to the player, format it and then after the format, you can now load music onto your mp3 player.

Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

Presuming you're running OS X and not booting into MS Windows, you shouldn't need any drivers at all. I see the same logo, etc. on my centon's display when I plug it into my Mac (via a hub), so that's a good sign.
If the centon doesn't show up on your Mac's desktop, does it show up in Disk Utility? If it does, and it's grayed out, try selecting it and mounting it. If it doesn't show up in Disk Utility, does it show up when you open System Profiler and click on 'USB' in the left-hand column?
If it doesn't show up at all, try plugging it in with the battery installed.

the device hardware is damaged....
replace it, if it still in warranty

Centon... | Answered on Jul 26, 2010

This is either an internal problem, or a problem with the jack itself. Given the model of the mp3 player I would suggest picking up a replacement could easily get one for about 15$.
Thank you,

I had the same problem--It turned out to be corrupt data on the USB drive.

Remove the battery.

Make sure the "HOLD" button is "OFF" and insert the drive in your computer's USB port.

Find the USB drive in your "My Computer" menu and right click on it, then click "Format." (Note: Some computers to not supply power to certain USB ports. If you do not see the USB drive, try another port. If you can't find it using any port, put the battery back in and try again.)

Quick-format the USB device as at FAT, FAT16, or FAT32.

To prevent drive/data corruption, ALWAYS click on "Safely remove hardware" in your computer's taskbar and "eject" your USB device before removing it from the USB port.

You should have all menus and functionality restored, it worked for me.

On my 2GBMP3-001 MP3 Player I simply hold down the silver button for a moment and it begins recording.

If your "Hold" button is on, turn it off. The hold button write-protects the USB drive and you cannot add or delete files.

Remove the battery, then put it back in, restart windows and plug it in,
make sure windows see the devise.

If you removed it while it was still loading, you could have locked the devise
from working, and you will have to send it to the MFG to get it fixed.

Go to there website and see how you have to send it back.

There is a user guide for the Centon MoVex MP3 Player here (the manufacturer's support web site) . . .


Since all Centon's MP3 players seem to be alike with the only difference in storage capacity, this manual may serve you . . . it did for me with my 2GB player (whatever make it is.)

As for charging the batteries, if yours is like mine, then the MP3 player uses AAA size batteries, so you won't have any internal battery to charge.

Hope this info helps.

this may be because your hold button is on. Make sure the hold button is off. It's on the side of the player

Centon... | Answered on Jul 16, 2009

To open the battery cover you first need to take off the USB cap at the end of the player. Then it just slides off like a cover on a remote control
