    i have tried to turn it on by pushing the button for about 10 seconds but it still doesn't turn on. I opened the devices and I noticed some kind of rust build up at the internal battery (not the AAA battery). what do you think is wrong?

You need to push the on/off button and wait for about 5 seconds (try 10 just to be sure it really doesn't work). Let me know if it's still not working.

Mp3 player says ''no file'' after repeated Sync attempts

I have one of these too and finally figured it out! If you push the menu button on the side, you get a menu that you can scroll through with the left/right arrows on the face. The music icon should be first in the list, but if not, scroll until you get it highlighted. Once highlighted, push menu again to select it. My trouble was in not realizing that the menu button is also the select button!

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.

Turns on but wont bring menu up

Try flashing the firmware first, if it won't communicate with the pc, try another pc. If it is still stuck you may need to replace the HD. I had the same problem after replacing the HD I was able to flash the firmware and get working.

Mpio HD-400 is stuck on loading screen windows doesnt recognize it

alotita, I have an MPIO HD-200. Does Windows play the sound like you have something attached when you plug it in? Or does Windows not regognize it al all? Either way, I've had to play with mine after I've dropped it a couple of times. I charge the battery all the way, then just keep plugging and unplugging from the USB wire. The last time, it took 20+ times before Windows would recognize it.

My mp3 doesn't work

A few options, one is that you deleted system files when deleting mp3's and now its inoperable. Sorry, can't really help you on that one. another option is that you're just not using the sony software to put songs in the player. song will transfer, but the player won't know what to do with it. I heard that apart from the sonic stage software, there's another simpler one (minus some BS) than the sonic, on the sony site. Good luck
