Hour glass sign on the screen of my MP3. won't go away and MP3 won't start working. The hour glass sign just stays on the screen.

I have a Craig CMP616F MP3 player. In "Set Up", After I set the "online mode" to "Media Device" from "USB Disk", it was working ok until I loaded Apple iTunes. When Apple iTunes attempted to load, it crashed! Flashing start up screen, blue with Hour Glass, then blank out, attempt to restart and the same thing, blue screen with hour glass. There is no known reset proceedure at this time, I started it, let it run and recycle endlessly until the batteries expired. Not recommended, because of battery life, but this did reset this model. Success! A drastic step for the irrecoverable MP3. When I used a standard charger 110v Ac to USB (wall current) it started up, no lost files! Lucky, maybe, I hope this will work for you if you haven't thought of it.

I have the GPX MW3847 and I couldn't get it to work at first. I finally figured out that the switch on the side needs to be set to off before you try to press the play button down. This sounds weird I know but it worked for me. Before I did this it kept saying "bye" and turning right back off.
