The unit turns on and the initialization screen appears and a clock like icon appears with the hand rotating and just continues to rotate and never initializes. I tried resetting the unit but it just goes...

If you leave it long enough it should initialise. I had to plug it into mains power so the battery doesn't go flat while it's trying to ido so. But then again, your battery might last longer than mine as mine was a factory repair, so there's a laundry list of issues I've had with it.

Wont go to main screen

I had one of these for a while, before I finally got fed up with the crappy firmware and switched to Rockbox, an open-source firmware that is infinitely better than the default.

But if you do want the original firmware, go here: for a step-by step guide to reinstalling the firmware. Be warned that I do believe your music will be deleted from the player, though.
