Re: locked

There's a lock button by the headphone jack. Flip that switch and you should be good to go.

My ipod touch is locked

Your best bet is to follow the steps here  ( ) or download a piece of software like, Sharepod, pod plus and if your a mac user i recommend iprober and podworks to transfer the songs to you're new computer. Once you get all the songs onto the new computer and imported into itunes, connect your ipod to your computer as usual and in itunes restore the ipod to factory settings.. when all said and done it will now sync the songs and playlist like before and will now be synced to that computer. There is a good chance you'll lose all of your hopefully  you don't have any playlist that require those, as they will not work.
I hope that helps.  Jai

Wont turn on

did you try pushing the little button on the side towards the on positition. It should be in the middle by default. If you push the button down, it locks the songs so they can't accidentally be deleterd. But to turn it on you need to push the button up and quickly let it go. Don't hold it or it will turn off again. Then to turn it off when you are done you push that button again and hold for about 1 second. I hope this helps. You didn't say if you tried that so I am assuming you didn't.

My Creative Zen has a white screen but syill plays music
1. Fully charge the unit
2. Get a song to play
3. Lock the device
4. Wait for black screen and leave it like that for 20 seconds
5. Hold the play/pause button down and move the side switch out of lock mode, then push all the way down (like you're turning it off) and release (back to middle position)
6. Release the play/pause button

My songs are shuffled

Since you cannot see what you are doing on the screen, I will tell you what buttons to push to un-shuffle your songs. Press the buttons in the exact order I tell you. Ok. Turn off the mp3 player, then turn it back on. Press the little menu button. Push the left arrow button once. Press the play button 3 times slowly. You are now in the menu that gives you the following options to unshuffle your music:
1. Off
2. Repeat single Track
3. Shuffle/No Repeat
4. Repeat all Tracks
5. Repeat all With Shuffle

I'm guessing that you may have to push the down arrow once or the up arrow once. This should select the Repeat all Tracks option. After scrolling up or down one time, press the play button once, then the menu button twice. Now push play to start your music. If this does not work, you can set your player back to the default settings by pushing the menu button once, pushing left arrow once, hit the play button. Scroll down 5 times, hit the play button, and push down 3 times. Be careful, because if you do not push the down arrow THREE times, you might accidentally select the option of erasing the memory.Once you push down 3 times and hit the play button, push down once more to select Yes of reseting your player back to it's original settings. This should help you out.

AH! D:

The songs that you tried to load are in the wrong format, or do not have transfer rihts. Convert them to mp3 format and you will never have that problem again.

MP3 player problem
