  • bb7275 Jan 08, 2009

    I thought there might be something wrong with the disc so I exchanged it for another one. Same problem-nothing happens and I can't install the disc. I thought maybe since I have Vista there was a compatibility but the user manual since it is compatible with Vista. I cannot figure out this problem.

My element GC-820 mp3 player shows the starting sign but wont turn on. how do i reset it


First of all hit the reset button for about 10 seconds and the player should do a hard reset.Now try turning it on again.

If it still wont start up then connect the player via usb to a computer,you should see your player in the list of devices in "My computer" right click on it and select the format option,this will wipe your player.

Visit your manufacturer website's support section and download the latest firmware for your device,save the file to your computer and connect your device to the computer and update your firmware

I need the firmware of the gc-822

You should be able to download the driver here:

Just select "GC-820" on the dropdown menu after "MP3 Players"
Then, click "Get Driver"
It should start downloading it to your computer.

(FYI: GC-820, GC-821, GC-822 and GC-823 are all the same model of MP3 player, they're just different colors)

Since you posted this under "Mac Laptops", though, I'm not sure the driver will help you out. According to Element Electronics' website (, it looks like the MP3 player is only compatible with Windows machines.
If you *are* on a Mac, try just plugging your MP3 player into the computer and see if your computer recognizes it.

Hope this helps!
I'm not sure if this MP3 player will work on a Mac though. Plug it in and see if it shows up in Finder.

How do I make the Element GC-820 shuffle music?

There is an Element Owner's manual on this site if you go all the way to the bottom and click on manuals when you first enter this site. I have read from reviews that this manual is not very user friendly but it will have what you are looking for.

Describe your element gc-822 error Problem I loaded the songs and they wont play. It says "disc error."

check to see if your files are MP4, vs MP3. MP4 files won't play in this player, so you'd have to convert them to mp3.

Computer wont read the dic that came with the element mp3 player

You really don't need it. XP/Vista will see the device as a storage device. Drag and drop MP3 files. If you want to do videos - google for AMV converter (It is a compressed native format and the only type the player will see and play.) You can get the same one that is in the manual for free online as well as several others.
