That might not work though, so, if it doesn't show in My Computer, you need to have the software CD it came with installed or get it from (www.philips.com/support) and use the device manager to restore it. You'll lose all your music and anything you had on the player. I had the same problem (my fault) and I did just that. Lost everything but it still works today.

The screen is stuck on a screensaver and it will not turn off or do anything


It often happens when it doesn't a file is corrupted. If it gets stuck on "Refreshing database", turn it off by holding the power switch until it shuts down, then plug it on a computer and when the sansa logo appears, unplug it. It will skip the datebase refresh and you'll be able to reformat it.

Insignia mp3 player ns-dv4g File System Fail


NAND is a type of Flash Memory, most likely the internal memory. If it has failed then the mp3 player is dead. If the device is still on warranty, then you may be able to get the retailer to replace it.
Flash Memory is not 100% reliable. Like all storage mediums, it will wear out or deteriorate over time. But it will mean that you have lost everything on it. You have my deepest apologies, but this does happen, if infrequently.

Player shuts itself off


There could be a damage or corrupted file in the sansa clip. I suggest to reformat the player. To reformat the player. First turn off the player. Then slide the power switch down it will be showing red, now press and hold the center or the middle button on the player while connecting the player to the computer. It will be detected as a drive on your computer, now right click on it and choose FORMAT, make sure the file system is FAT32 then click start to continue formatting the player. This will erase or remove all the songs on your player but this will fix the problem that you are having

The Sony NWZ B105F Music player


download the nwd-b105 firmware 1.1 (google it) and once you have it connect your mp3 player to an usb port of your pc. run the firmware file you downloaded and check the "delete files" option and run the firmware. you will lose all your files but your mp3 should be functional again. remember that when you do a firmware update you must keep your mp3 connected to the pc, also a if there is for some reason a power failure you may brick your mp3 player. my mp3 player had teh same problem as yours and i fixed it this way. the reason this happens is that sometimes the antivirus delete some system files from your mp3 and thus it cant access its database causing an error and shutting down the mp3 unit. hope this helps!!

Make sure the files your trying to put on there are compatible with your mp3 player. Some files wont go on because they aren't the right file type and so you need to convert those files to mp3s
