    downloading song screen froze with name of song but it won't play, won't turn off or do anything but show the name of song. There is at least a half charge left on the battery icon.

All you have to do is stick a small needle in the small hole in the top of the player. Wiggle the needle around and it will turn on by itself. I just recently figured it out. This problem happens alot.

I had the same problem here is what I had to do: Go to Download the firmware and then follow the instructions in your manual on page 32. If you no longer have the manual here are the instructions: UPDATING THE FIRMWARE WARNING! Do not update the firmware unless you are experiencing problems with your digital audio device. Incorrect or faulty firmware installation will cause the player to stop functioning. 1. Download the updated firmware at (The link I gave will go straight to the download page) 2. Unzip the file, then double click setup.exe in the Desktop folder to install the software to your computer. 3. Connect the player to the computer using the supplied USB cable and the installation screen will appear. (If the installation screen does not appear, unplug the USB cable and turn off the unit). Connect to the computer again and press and hold the Power On/Off/Stop button until the installation screen appears. 4. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver. 5. When finished, click START and locate the newly installed software ?Deco? and select ?Firmware Download?. Now in number 3 I could not get the installation screen to appear so what I had to do was go into the "Deco" and manually select "Firmware download" BEFORE I Installed the driver. This basically completely erased everything from the player to the extent that Windows did not recognize the player. So I had to use the "New Hardware Detected" icon in the Windows start menu to install the player. Hopefully yours will work properly and you wont have to go through all that. But anyways good luck hope this helps

    When you download the firmware and you go to the "Setup" app, It may ask you if you want to UNINSTALL rather than install. Just say "ok" to uninstall then run setup again to reinstall.

    Good luck again

Try plugging the unit directly into the computer tower and not use the extension cable, plug it directly into one of the rear ports on your computer. This unit actually hardly ever breaks because its a simple flash drive.
