    Ditto, same problem.

    I recv. my GPX MW238B for xmas. I sync'ed some tracks and it was working great. Turned the unit off, took a nap and when I went to re-start it later all I got were the letters GPX in the LED. I tried to bring it back to life on two different computers but the PCs will not recognize unit (USB port). I changed the battery and tried some resets I learned over the years. Nothing works. If you hold down the "M" button on top of the unit while powering up you get a code (this is the code I got "0 1--04--22" ). Anyone know how to salvage unit?

Unplug computer power cord for ten minutes, if it is a laptop, also remove battery at same times.

If the gpx is battery powered, also remove the mp3 battery.

If the reset above does not work, test the GPX on a different computer.

If player works on a different computer, then try a system restore, or reinstall windows if necessary.

If player does not work on a different computer, then the player is probably faulty.

I just bought a GPX MP3 player (ML651B) I put music on it and was charging it. It now doesn't even want to turn on. I looked at the GPX website and I couldn't even find this one among their products. Now,...

The power button (more like a slide) on the bottom right side will turn it on once it's ejected from the computer. Hold the slide in, and let go after a second or two. Give it a few seconds (like 10) and it should power on. I got mine as a gift and am still working through the interface.

Computer was checking files and it got unplugged now the computer wont recognize it and wont get past the gpx loo screen.

I solved this problem the next day by plugging it into a windows 95 computer which recognized it when my toshiba didnt. It was frozen on the checking files and I was able to manually end it. There must be something in a 95 that isnt in a 200 model.

There could be more than one reason - the most likely is that the HOLD button has been engaged. Your USB port may not be 2.0 - try a different usb port on your computer. You could be running Windows Vista or some other incompatible OS. You may have forgotten to download the install CD. The following information is straight from GPX themselves:
"What if I cannot troubleshoot an error message?" You will need to format your player. Connect the player to your computer using your USB cable. Make sure the HOLD switch is in the unlocked position.
Formatting can be done in two ways:
  1. Within the Start menu, select My Computer. In the My Computer folder, right-click on the icon representing your GPX player. You will be given a list of options. One of them will be to Format your drive. Click on this to erase everything on your GPX player. A warning will pop up to make certain that this is the choice that you want to select. Once your player is formatted, reload your music files onto your GPX player.
  2. Open Windows Media Player. In version 10, open the Sync tab. On the right-hand side, there will be a listing for GPX audio player. Just above this and to the right are a set of four icons. The icon furthest to the right represents, “Format storage media.” This icon resembles a pencil. After formatting, synchronize music to the player. In version 11, open the Sync tab. On the far left column, there should be a listing for GPX Audio Player. Right-clicking on this listing will result in a menu containing Format. Select this to erase everything on your mp3 player.

It wont stay on and windows media wont detect it!

What OS? Win98SE requires drivers & updates which can be downloaded from the GPX web site under "support".
