Your hard drive is dead, you are going to need to buy a new one, you can buy micro drives off ebay of about £30 of you could take it to a sony repair center but that is going to cost.

Sony NW-A1000 will not play,

If you get the spinning disc error on your sony nw a1000 it means the hardrive is knackerd.
The hardrive in the sony NW A1000 is a segate ST1.2 6gb and these can be bought off ebay for around £8. If you can't find a 6gb one you can fit an 8gb hardrive BUT your NW A1000 will only use 6gb of it.

If you search on the internet you can find instructions on how to remove the back cover of your NW A1000 which is very easy to do! You then unplug the hardrive (be very careful!) and replace it with the new seagate hardrive. Turn the NW A1000 on and go to the home menu, select "settings", then select "intialize disc" and it will format your new hardrive so that it can work with NW A1000.

Maybe the mp3 player is dead.. but.. you should install the firmware update for it.. because maybe the mp3 player ROM has a defect..

Stuck while loading music??

The same thing happened to mine a couple of times.. I let the battery run completely down then plugged it into my computer.. after a couple of attempts it seems to recognised the mp3 player, and works at least for a bit after that. I've now deleted and added quite a few various tracks, and it has been fine for a while now.. so not sure if it might be a corrupt/dodgy file taht I've now deleted or something?
