Screensaver stuck


Sounds like you have a runaway process that is consuming all resource. Sorry but you'll just have to hold down the power button until the machine shuts down. Then restart and you should be ok.

Power it down then plug it in with i-tunes opened on your pc when you power it up continue to hold the round button on the front until it completly powers up and it should go straight to recovery mode.

My ipod touch is disabled and i cant hook it up to itunes cause it needs a code but its disabled and is stuck at the disabled screen.


you will need to put your touch into recovery mode aka DFU mode.
Here are the steps:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Iphone and itouch dfu mode

Plug the usb cable into the Ipod and NOT into the computer.
Hold the Home Button down for 5 second (do not release it)
Then Press and hold the Power Button for approx 10 secs (count them out)
Your iPod will reboot.
Release the power button and continue holding the Home button for an additional 27secs.
You may see the screen go blank or not.
Plug the USB end into the computer with itunes open.
Your ipod will mount in recovery mode.
Restore it and Your all set.

My archos 605 has got recovery code 102 and i cant get it to conect to my pc to fix it can u halp


I fixed my son's 605 4 GB had Recovery code (104) on it. This might work for other error codes too. These are the steps i followed 
* Use the computer for this process that you always used for this archos Archos should be plugged in toPc before starting the process.
* Download the firware Upgrade 2.1
* Plug the Archos to Pc 
* When the white option screen comes up pick the format disk
* Wait until all done do not pick any option on archos after format is done Pc should recognize your archos in 5 seconds 

* Put the firmware in root section of the archos not in any folder.
* Safely remove the usb for Archos from your pc first and then unplug the cable.
* Do not pick any option on the Archos screen
* Just turn it off from the power button by holding it until it turns off
* Wait about 5 minutes and plug it back to pc 
* it will come up with white screen again but this time it will start Update you will see the progress bar moving, wait until it is all done, it will shut off. Turn it back on and  your archos will be back to normal

Zen player stuck on -shutting down


Try to find a small hole with the text "Reset" next to it. Find something small(paper clip for instance) and simply just press the button inside the hole, you will hear a small "click".

My PC does not recognize my Sansa c240


I just purchased this model for my boyfriend, had a hell of a time trying to figure it out, but after doing numerous google searches, I figured out that you have to place the lock/unlock or "hold" on some models into the lock position, then hold down the rewind button DON'T LET GO UNTIL THE PC RECOGNIZES IT!! It should work. I downloaded all the firmware and stuff I could (not even sure what firmware is... lol... just did it cuz that's what I read to do). Once I did this, it picked it up within 60 secnods and now my PC recognizes it everytime I plug it in. I was up unitl 1am this morning trying to get the darn thing to be recognized... I hope this saves you some sleep! LOL
