Re: Freezes on start up

If you have problems with the file system on your Gmini? 402 you can try to fix it using the DOS utility, check disk (chkdsk). Do the following; ? Make sure external AC adapter is powering the Gmini? 402. ? Quit all running applications. ? Properly connect the Gmini? 402 to your computer ? Wait patiently (up to 5 minutes) for Windows XP to show the local drive as mounted. ? Open a DOS window. Programs > Accessories > command Prompt. ? At the prompt, type chkdsk e: /f. Use e: or f: or whatever drive letter is representing your Gmini? 402. The /f argument tells the program to automatically fix errors. ? Be patient, this may take a while. ? When it is finished, exit the DOS Window and properly disconnect the Gmini? 402 from your computer. Try it now and see if makes any difference,

My Zen mp3 player wont work.

If you can try to open the files on your computer by search files option, then opne them and save the lot to a secured folder. Then completely format the device, erasing all the date stored. reset teh device once again and now put back antivirus scanned files back from your PC saved folder. Please check all the files for any error befroe you reload. I hope this will help you out. Good day

H3y i have a sansa clip mp3 player and i was outside and then it froze and it dont wanna turn on but it is frozin please help me what can i do

Hold in the power button for 15 seconds or longer to reset it. If it freezes again, make note of the track that it froze on, and delete that track (and any others you grabbed from that same source) at your earliest convenience.
