Oops, correction ... I reset it again and tried it and it came right on. It looks great, it sounds great. If you look on the bottom of the player you'll see a tiny pin-hole. Just stick a needle or pin in it, reset it and try again. Good luck.
I've reset it several times. The cards still won't work; but right now my daughter is enjoying the movies i downloaded for her. It is still frustrating, because the money was spent on the cards. I got a refund on one of the cards. I would still like any possible solution for the other non-playing card.

Tips & Warnings
If you converted files using the Mix It Plug-In, you will need to use Windows Media Player 10 to sync them to the player.
I solved this problem by using WME (Windows Media Encoder) per Digital Blue's website to re-encode the video, however, instead of choosing 220x176, I chose pocket pc widescreen in the new session wizard. This is found on the encoding options page in the video drop down box. This changed the video size to 320x240. Suprisingly, this worked.
The Max Clip video cards are already in WMV format but have just have a .smv file extension so it's not necessary to convert them. Besides the Max Clip cards are read only so it's not possible to take the content off of the card to be converted and then placed back on the card. It's more likely that the problem is the firmware version of your player. Try following the directions at the link below for updating the firmware of your player.
I think I've covered this one before... not sure though so here we go...
First of all DVD's are copyrighted and digitally encoded so that they
can't be copied to your computer or other devices. Windows Media Player
can't rip them because of this encoding. Not only that if you were
somehow able to copy it to the player the Mix Max can't play DVD
formatted videos, it can only play WMV (Windows Media Video) formatted
videos that are properly "encoded" for play on the Mix Max.
Check out the link below for how to properly encode your videos for play on the Mix Max.
It has a PDF download with instructions on how to properly encode videos so that they will play on the Mix Max.
The Mix Max isn't an MP4 player. It's a WMA/MP3 audio player and it plays WMV videos. The videos have to be in WMV format to start and there are instructions on the manufacturers website on how to make sure that they are properly encoded. Here the link... http://digiblue.com/customer-service/faqs/disney/mixmax/07.html
here it is, for those who nearly threw out those little things away, im not a techie but after 2 days i finally figured it out. whew! my 2 girls love youtube and music videos so for those who wants to get and play them instead of movies (the batteries on the mix max are not so good anyways) this is step by step, so be patient.
1. download youtube downloader (i usually download at cnet or sites you trust) to get those flv videos you like. (its quite easy to use and its free!!!)
2. download stoik video converter-(its free too) to convert those flv files to WMA, its quite easy to navigate but remember on the OUTPUT FORMAT choose wmv, i used WMV for ISDN 128, but...STILL in the output format click "edit profile" (scroll down to the end and you will see it) another window will pop out and change the frame size to 192x144 (mandymmof2 was right theconverted frame size should be at least the same size or smaller so thanks to him i was able to solve it)
3. go to windows media player or you can just open your converted video. drag it to the sync list, (but make sure your mix max is already connected and it says create a list to sync to mix max storage (internal/external whatever memory you choose to use)
remove and play...
FOR THOSE WHO DONT KNOW HOW TO DELETE SONGS/VIDEOS/FILES FROM MIX MAX .
