    I bought the player around november last year, the model is MA566-1BL. I don't think it's the battery problem, because I used a brand new battery. The first time uploaded songs, I just simply dragged the tracks into the file. However, when I want to add more song, after i connected it with the computer, the computer shows it's a "Audio Player", after I clicked it, there are two files showed up, which are FMIN.DIR and MICIN.DIR, I couldn't find any songs in them. The only way I was able to add more songs last night, was to sync them with windows media player. I don't know much about computers, does this give you a bit more info?

    thank you for your help!

How long have you had the player? It may be because of an old battery. Also it may be the driver. It could be many things, is there any more details that you could give, like what the model is, what you use to load the songs on, and operating system. This will be a little easier with this info.

    Okay with this new information I have eliminated a few things, I don't think that is the driver, your computer, or your battery. However if you have not done so yet, reset the player and this might help. I had my mp3 player do this a couple months ago and once I reset it, it was fine. If this doesn't work then let me know.

    Let me know how it works out!

    There may be a reset button on your player, or hold down the power button for 15-25 seconds. If these don't work, then look in the manual that came with it.

    And just call me "Fixer Guy"

My sansa clip is frozen on the blue flower

One issue that people experience with the Sansa Fuze player is that the screen turns white when they are trying to use it. If you experience this common Sansa Fuze MP3 player repair issue, you need to reset your player. Hold down the "Play" and "Power" buttons for about 20 seconds. The player should automatically reset.
MP3 Player Freezes

Another issue is that the player freezes. You may see lights on the player, but it won't do anything. Follow the below steps to correct this issue:

1. Use the above steps to perform a hard reset.

2. Turn the player back on, and slide the "Power" button upward.

3. Use the USB cord that came with your player, and connect it to your computer. Only connect your player directly to the computer. Don't connect it to a USB hub.

4. See if your computer recognizes that a device was connected to it. Or, look in "Devices and Printers" folder, and see if the device shows up in it.

If your device doesn't reset, and the computer doesn't recognize it, contact SanDisk for additional assistance. Or, you can attempt to repair the device yourself.
Repairing Internal Components

If your Sansa Fuze player is out of warranty, you can attempt to repair internal components. This is an "enter at your own risk" solution, but you may be able to fix the issue. If it doesn't work, or if you damage another component, you will most likely need to get a new player.

1. Shut off the device.

2. If you don't have one, purchase a case opener tool. This is a tool with an extremely small head that is used specifically for opening up small devices.

3. Place the head of the tool in the seam of the device, and rise up the faceplate. Do not do this forcibly, or you'll break the ribbon cable connected to it.

4. Remove the ribbon cable from the faceplate.

5. Examine the battery cable. If this connection is loose, your Fuze player won't turn on. Plug the connection firmly into the port.

6. Check the LCD screen connection. A loose connection here means that you can't see anything on your screen. Disconnect the cable from the port, and reconnect it.

7. Reattach the cable to the faceplate, and reattach the faceplate. Turn the device back on.

These Sansa Fuze MP3 player repair suggestions may not fix all issues. If your player is still not working properly, either take it back to the place where you bought it, or contact SanDisk for additional help.

My Samsung YP-T9 MP3 Player wont turn on!!

I think holding down menu and the record button at the same time should fix it. I read the best solution and it just turned on. I was having the same problem, mine would not turn on either but just try pressing and holding down the record and menu button for about 5 seconds.

Computer not detecting

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

THEN, do the "Repair" in the Philips Device Manager

Can no longer connect with computer

possibly needing reset? Try pushing a pin into the reset hole under the back cover.

If that doesn't work, just wait until it runs out of power.

Then charge, and plug back into the computer

Possibly needing to format and reinstall the firmware. The firmware is on the site.

Good luck,
