Re: Hardisk problem...

Try holding down the play/pause button whilst pushing a paperclip into the reset hole. you should hopefully then get the choice of several options to try. If that doesn't work you could also try looking on creative american website for instructions for other players - some of these work for different models even when not specified. Good luck!

Re: Hardisk problem...

Do what denise1 said. usually the recovery mode menu comes up. to keep your music already on the player select clean-up. clean-up won't damage the music files.

When listening to music it suddenly stopped playing. Screen frozen saying shutting down but nothing happening

That could be a short in your mp3. You should be a small hole somewhere on it that says reset. You would need to get a needle or something that thin and push the button inside the hole and hold it for ten seconds. That should fix your system.

My philips gogear vibe wont turn on

Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,

if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.

Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.

If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.

Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."

This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.

Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.

Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.

Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.

Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.

Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.

Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.

This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.

If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.

Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.

hope this helps

16gb Sansa player that recharges and plays for only 3-4 hours

let your battery run out by leaving you mp3 player play as long as it can....then open up the back of the mp3 player take out the battery and put the battery a freezer for an out or 2 then let it sit out for a day then put it back in the sansa and recharge it and it should either fix it or help add more life span to the charge

Automatic on & off

This sounds like it may have a power issue. I would suggest taking the back cover off to gain access to the battery (should slide off). Next I would remove the battery from your MP3 player for one full minute. Then put the battery back in and check it. If that does not solve it, try recharging if rechargeable or replacing if disposable battery(s) are used.

Problem with music playing with speakers; pressed FORMAT and all music disappeared!

Hello hiinthesky03...
Okay, I'll discuss your 1st problem first. Check the battery of your mp3 player. Playing songs require a lot of energy.

Secondly, hitting 'format' will empty your mp3 player. So, now that you've formatted it, you download songs and more again and then avoid hitting the 'format' next time if you don't want to lose all your files.

Hope this helps...should you have further questions, just feel free again to post your comment for this answer (to let me know if this helps or not)...Thanks!

After a few minutes the scroll button of my iriver H10(5GB) starts to scroll down of its own accord.The music is still playing but can't be heard,and scroll button is still clicking. Ray

I don't know yet if I've solved it or not. It has been playing for approx.30mins. without a problem, but
all that I've done is recharge both of the batteries,( which were not showing empty) . What is the life
span for one of these batteries, and why should the music carry on?

Cheers, Raymill.

No recording message

I was just playing with this little wheel, switchinig from one folger to another, and suddenly it was playing music again. The problem is solved, but I really don't know how. I suspect that somehow the empty folder was turned on. I don't know if there are empty folders to fill with recording or the folder is created after the music was transfered to the player. I would be gratefull for the answer to this question.

Cannot charge or copy music onto the sansa e270

You might not have the battery "seated" correctly. Try removing and replacing the battery.
