Weirdly, all that happens when I tried the volume button trick, is that the player will turn on when plugged into the USB port, and I can actually play tracks, but the instant I unplug the USB cable, it turns off.

I work for Memorex tech support. Our number is 800-919-3647.
You can't sync the Memorex player to iTunes, however, you can copy music from your iTunes library for use on your Memorex. First you must convert the music you want to copy into .mp3 format since iTunes uses a different format (AAC) as its default. Follow the instructions below to change the import settings in iTunes:
1. Choose Edit> Preferences, click the General tab, then click Import Settings.
2. Choose MP3 Encoder from the Import Using pop-up menu.
Once that's done, go back to your library and highlight the songs you want to convert. Once they're highlighted, right-mouse click and you'll see an option for Create MP3 version. This will not effect iTunes ability to play the music and if you have an iPod, it will not be effected either. After the conversion is finished, I suggest draging the songs you want for your Memorex player to a folder on your desktop. These .mp3 files can be copied onto your player and will play just fine.

This problem can be easily fixed by running an update called firmware provided by Memorex. If you have the color display, by following the link below you will find the file to download which contains the executable application and instructions to run it.

HI. This unit has internal memory(1gb) that can become unstable, thus, causing start up issues. With that said; This will most likely be a dead cell(battery). I would replace the battery with a new one if it is over 1 years old. This lithium cell may be defective. Once you have purchased a new battery, be sure to charge it fully before using the player. It takes three whole hours to set a newly purchased lithium cell. Once that is done, power up the player and update your firmware. Use the steps below to update properly:
1. Download the updated firmware at www.memorexelectronics.com.
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” andselect “Firmware Download”.
Now, after the update, you will need to reformat the player. Use the steps below to achieve this:
1. Use the USB cable to connect the player and the computer.
2. Double click on My Computer, then right click "MPT Player", "MMP8565"or "Removable Disk" and left click on"Format".
3a. For "MPT Player" or "MMP8565", at the "Format" window, click OK to confirm and the player will start to format . When
finished, click "OK" to close the Format window.
3b. For "Removable Disk", at the "Format" window, select "FAT 32" from the file system pull-down menu, then click "Start" to format the unit
