    I have the same problem after charging all night it says hard disk problem and clean up,format all, reload os, reboot comes up. I have reboot and it still doesn't work.

  • Lovesaxy Mar 19, 2008

    I tried the tapping thing and the player briefly went back to normal, but then froze. Try as I might it still would not do anything so I hit the reset button and then it went back to recovery mode. I tried the tapping again many times but I cannot get it to go back to working regularly. Does anyone have any alternate tips?

    I too dropped mine with the same trip to Rescue Mode and, after reading this post, tapped it and it worked!!! Thank you so much!! Did a stylus go off the edge or something when it dropped?

They say seeing is believing, If I did not see it myself I would not believe it in a million years. It did not work the first time or the second. They say third time is charm. The system came up, began to rebuild files & then the nomad came up with all my files & everything, data music everything.

I believe I am ready do die, as I have now seen it all :-)

My Mp3 PLayer is charged but no matter what I do, It wont turn on


your battery has run out and needs to be charged that's why it is not turning on.
connect it to a another usb port on your computer and it should be able to turn on and charge, it should work, if you still have problems, comment back.

It wont turn on!


If you were charging it with your USB cord, you have to keep the computer turned on the whole time it's charging, otherwise, it will be losing it's charge.

I think it over charged. I left it on all day. When I returned home it was turned off. Before when I tried to turn it off it wouldn't. I turned it back on and it was fine, but the battery was very low. I charged it for a smaller amount of time. It is now fine and working like normal!

When I turn the Gogear on, it has a file with a " ! "


This is usually caused by a problem with the hard disk. This is signified by a repeating sound from the hard disk inside the player.

Occassionally it can be fixed by tapping the player on a table when it is trying to start up.

WARNING

THIS CAN ALSO CAUSE FURTHER DAMAGE TO THE HARD DISK so only try as a last resort.
