Re: mp3 palyer

Firstly, "re-set" the T9 (ie hold 'MENU & REC' for 3 secs to re-initialise the built-in firmware - refer to your manual, or download manual off Samsung website). This procedure will overide everything. If this gets it goin, then download the latest firmware update from Samsung website (download centre/mp3) and save newest firmware onto your T9 - your manual should explain how to do this. Always update your T8 with latest firmware when available (appropriate with your Windows OS), to eliminate any bugs in the firmware. Failing this, then a replacement battery is the next step. If still under warranty (ie less than 12mnths old), then have an approved Samsung service agent look at it Free of charge. Good luck.

My mp3 touch screen froze while i was useing it

1. Connect the player to the mains via the power cable.
2. Straighten out a paper clip.
3. Hold down the Play/Pause button, and poke the paperclip through the reset hole (still holding down the play/pause button)
4. This will acces the recovery mode. Scroll down and go to reboot. Press the OK button.

I can't remember if this resets the data though?

But once you have control of the zen head on over to their website and update the firmware (this will wipe all of your songs, but would you rather have an MP3 player with music you cant listen to?) Haha

Anyhow hope this helps.

Mp4 player problem,no song ??

Ok whats your MP3/MP4 brand? if it is generic then try maybe the folder is hide and u can see it in the computer because you allow to see hide folder but then the player can't see it(if thats the case). or try to reformat your player. then copy the music again, but before you reformat the palyer back up first ur music/files.

SONY NWD-B105 it says BOOT ERROR and it shut down

Hey,FRIEND!! I actually found out a solution regarding on the problem by myself,accidentally, lol. As you guys mentioned, everytime you try to play a song, the device automatically turned off itself. Now, i'll tell the trick behind. You may simply hold the "Play/Pause" button and don't let it go. At the mean time,try to select song by pressing "Next/Previous" button. The moment you select song, you let go the "Play/Pause" and hold it on again within a million second (that's mean you need to do it damn fast). Right now, you're listening your favourite song,but you can't just let your thumb keep pressing the "Play/Pause" button,right? Here is the "HOLD" button comes to work, you flip the "HOLD" button to activate it. TADA! You can let go your thumb and relax yourself with the songs playing. The battery will eventually dies out,nevermind though, you always can recharge it. Repeating these steps everytime you want to listen songs, my mp3 actually fixed on its own. I admit that it's still not the best solution it appears to be,but you guys should really try it out, you're not just going to give up your mp3 like that,agree? haha, all the best and good luck!

Sounds like the files are DRM copy protected.

You can check for protected tracks.
  • In Windows Explorer, go to the folder where the tracks are stored on your PC.
  • Click on View -----> Details
  • Right click on the header bar in the right hand window and select protected. (If protected is not listed click on More)
  • Tracks will be listed with No or Yes under "protected". Check your non-playing tracks are listed as No, under "protected".
The HDD1830 is not compatible with protected files, although your PC will play them ok.
