The EMP180C-4 doesn't have a reset button. In order to turn on the device make sure to follow the below steps:

1. Make sure the power switch is ON
2. Charge the device for 3-5 hours
3. Press and hold the pause & play button for 2 seconds and the device should turn on
4. If still the device is not turning on then it could be an issue with the battery or charger

Please let me know if this is helpful. Thank you

SOURCE: I Need a driver for my emerson Musicstick mp3 player

Not sure this will solve every ones problem but I had to upgrade media player to Version 10 to get this to work. I was running XP SP2 with media player version 9 and could not get it to show up in My computer. Also with ver9 I could download to the device but it would not recognize the files. Once I upgraded to ver10 all was golden. I think you also need to have USB 2.0.

Hope this helps

SOURCE: i don,t know how to put music on my mp3 player

Windows Media Player has the Sync tab. I believe that WMP 9 does. But not 10. Either way, you can just open up the player in the My Computer folder. Then copy and paste any music files you have.

When I look at the titles of the songs on my mp3 player it is in a language that looks Chinese and there is not even a Chinese language option on the device. What is wrong with this stupid Emerson 4gb mp3...

Use a paperclip or pin to push the RESET button located on the back of the MP3 player. Once you've done that, select ENGLISH as the language under the SETTINGS menu.

Emerson MP3 Player Won't Function

i have the same problem with mine. i just bought it. what i do is just simply hit the "reset" button at the back, and it starts working again. also, if u actually sync songs onto the mp3, it doesnt give that error message for some reason.... the problem i'm having with mine though is that it isnt fully charging no matter how long i leave it plugged in

I have an Emerson 2gb MP3 player model EMP 312-2, not sure if this info is for you or not. Make sure you are in the MUSIC MODE, when you use the menu button to go from music mode, voice mode, settings etc. you must push menu button again when the mode you want is hi-lited. I had a similar problem. Files were loaded (my music is on my harddrive already so I just copy to mp3 player) but when I turned player on it said no files. AHA, I finally realized I had somehow got into the voice mode and I did not have any voice files, so it said no files. I then went to Folder Mode and it only said micin.dir and it was empty, THAT WAS BECAUSE I WAS IN VOICE MODE, when I switched to music mode, they were all there. I know this sounds very rudimentary, but I am pretty computer literate and had no idea how I switched to voice mode. Before I figured this out for myself I called Emerson customer service, they said it was bad firmware and send it back. If someone there had walked me through what I just told you it would have saved me a lot of time. Hope this helps.

Mp3 player says ''no file'' after repeated Sync attempts

I have one of these too and finally figured it out! If you push the menu button on the side, you get a menu that you can scroll through with the left/right arrows on the face. The music icon should be first in the list, but if not, scroll until you get it highlighted. Once highlighted, push menu again to select it. My trouble was in not realizing that the menu button is also the select button!

My mp3 won't turn on!!

Sorry, as far as i know you can't, you nead to reset: 1. Recharge the product by connecting to the pc (pc must be running). 2. Press the reset button using a sharp tool. Wait 10 minutes then connect the player and pc. (The reset button is between the FUNC and MODE buttons.) 3. Turn the player off and press the mode button while making the player and pc connection. 4. The message ¡°USB Connected¡± displays when turning the player on. 5. Disconnect the player and pc. 6. Connect the player and pc after turning off the player. The player is charged in about 2 hours if the player is off. 7. Upgrade to the latest firmware (Ver. 1.11 or higher).
