Hold pause down, press reset button with paperclip (in the little hole on left side), then choose clean up, then select reboot. It will reload your library and it wont erase your files try it, I did and it worked fine after that.

Hi,
I think your Dell pocket DJ is an XP based Operating system.
1 press the start button
2. go to all progams and choose windows update and update your laptop
3. when the update is done, restart your system and try again.

Please tell me the pocket version you are using?

I have a discontinued dell pocket dj player that when i download the software it says it isnt compadable how do i fix this i have a vista.


Go to dell.com and enter the DJ's service tag ID on the back of your player on the support section. It will give you a list of drivers and software that you will need for your DJ. If you are running Vista, download the XP drivers. They will work fine.

How do I download music from my comp to my dell dj pocket?


If you haven't tried yet, just plug it in.
Vista is loaded with drivers and it should be able to find one for your DJ.

I hope this helps.

Cannot get my computer to recognize my Dell Jukebox


Assuming that you don't have windows vista, you can load the Dell DJ Explorer program that came with your DJ. It comes up as a regular looking window that should "see" your DJ when you plug it in. If it doesn't, where it says "not connected", right click and then click refresh. Sometimes it works better to plug in the DJ first, then load dj explorer. When it sees it, "not connected" should change to the name of your DJ. Double click that and it should then 'read' your dj, showing all the files on it. Then its just a tedious amount of copy and paste to another folder on your computer (like your My Music folder), and your music is restored to your computer. Take care, as DJ Explorer can also delete files from your DJ if you tell it to.
If you no longer have the DJ drivers and DJ Explorer and Musicmatch loaded on your computer, you can still download that stuff from the Dell site.
If you Do have Vista, try to find a friend with XP. Load the DJ explorer software on their computer, and pull your music off the dj to your friend's computer, then use a USB drive or something to move it to yours. Or better yet, upgrade your computer from VIsta to Xp (yes, I said upgrade - Vista is ****)

http://www.dellcommunity.com/supportforums/board/message?board.id=dce_djmusic&thread.id=47830 – How to Troubleshoot the Dell DJ Ditty – from Dell

http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/driverslist.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen&ServiceTag=&SystemID=PDA_MP3_DJ_DITTY&os=WW1&osl=en&catid=&impid= - Firmware for Ditty

Did you run the installation CD first? If you don't, Windows will load its own, possibly wrong, drivers.

Make sure you didn't accidentally press the player's lock button:
The keys on the Dell DJ Ditty have been locked.
Unlock the keys by pressing in on and holding the
Volume/Scroll/Select dial until the lock icon disappears.

Reset method - Insert the end of a thin object, such as a straightened paper clip, into the reset button (near the headphone jack).

Also make sure your operating system is Windows XP - it won't work on anything before or after.

The Musicmatch service that this player was tied to was discontinued in October 2007, so you’re going to have problems even if we get it working again.

The DJ Ditty does recognize DRM-encryption for WMA files – make sure the license is up to date, or convert the file to mp3 format if you are experiencing licensing issues.

If you are experiencing frequent freezing, or a file system/corruption error, or getting the “Warning! Reformat with Firmware Updater!” message, there are two ways to format the DJ Ditty:

Format using Windows Media Player:
Run Microsoft Windows Media Player.
Connect the DJ Ditty to the computer.
Click the Sync button on the top of the menu.
Click the "Format storage media" button on the right-hand side of the screen.
Disconnect the DJ Ditty and power it back on.

Reload or upgrade the Firmware:
Connect the DJ Ditty to the computer.
Download and install the latest firmware from http://support.dell.com
Run the firmware upgrade program with the "Format Data Area" checked.
Disconnect the DJ Ditty and power it back on.
