Many laptops do not have enough power resources to keep an mp3 player charged/properly functioning. To test, you will need to close all running programs, and devote the laptop solely to the function of charging the mp3 player (the laptop will need to be plugged into a wall outlet even if it has its own battery). This is not a guaranteed fix, but it is your only hope with a laptop. You will not experience the same problem on a desktop unless that mp3 player's hardware itself is faulty.

Gigaware mp3 4 gig locked up


If you mean, your gigaware mp3 is frozen and won't do anything, then there is a reset button on the side you will have to push with a something small. If that won't work, then wait for the battery to die. If you mean that your mp3 player won't stay on even if battery power is charged, I would get a plug-to-the-wall usb charger and plug the mp3 player to that. keep plugging it in and unplugging it untill it starts to work. Just keep playing with it until it starts working. If not then just wait a few hours to a day, then try to see if it works.

RCA M4304 mp3 player wont charge even when plugged in


As long as your computer can see the player, it is likely the firmware has gotten corruped.

First, connect your player and back up any important media items that are on it.

Next, download and run the firmware installer from the RCA website:

MP3 Player won't charge or turn on


Try charging it up on a different computer. It says in the instructions that they cannot guarantee the charging of the battery on personally assembled or modified computers. I had the same problem with mine on our independent computer shop bought PC, but it is charging up fine now that I've plugged it into my hubby's laptop which was bought in a PC supermarket. I hope this helps.

New iPod touch does not fully charge


Hi there,
To fully charge takes about 4hrs. The first 2hrs are a fast charge bringing it to about 80%. The following 2hrs are a trickle charge to bring it to as near to 100% as it can get. It is possible that the iPod hasn't yet calculated what 'Full Charge' is yet based on your devices installed battery. Give it a few days. If it still does this after a few charges and near complete discharges then do a reset. to do this, while it is on press and hold the Menu and Standby/Power buttons for about 10 seconds until the Apple symbol appears. This should get it to do a self test which will re-analyse the battery.

All the best
