    Whenever i turn on my Magnavox MP3 player, MAGNAVOX comes across the screen for 3 seconds, then it just shuts off. When i plug it into my computer the screen freezes.

    My MP3 player will never stay on. Noo matter how charged up the batteries are, when I turn the player on, I get the MAGNAVOX sign for 3 seconds before it shuts off. When I plug it into the computer, the whole screen freezes up. What do I do???

The MSA2025 is a neat little player - you just pop off the cap, and the usb connecter is directly attached to the device. So, no more cords.   The reset is simply to remove and reinsert the batteries.  It can work with Windows XP or Vista, and it is compatible with Windows Media Player 11. I would go ahead and upgrade the firmware at the first sign of trouble, because my friend, who is a Magnavox tech, had her share of problems with this one before upgrading the firmware. The only drawback of this player is that it is not compatible with DRM-protected WMA files - so it won't be compatible with Napster, Bearshare, Leap Frog, and many others. It is not compatible with iTunes.  Rhapsody's Mp3-Only service will work, as will Mp3's from Limewire, Morpheus, etc. I would only use mp3 files with this device.
I would reccomend using Windows Media Player 11 to Sync songs to your Mp3 player, but you can also drag and drop using Windows Explorer - just drop  the files in the Music folder of the Magnavox.

The manual can be found at:

The Magnavox website also has the "Magnavox Device Manager" - which is the same as a Philips Device Manager but with a different logo.

I tried the solution for this problem.

I held down the back button and the "+" volume button (just for good luck). My PC recognized it then, and the Magnavox device manager tried to repair it, but it didn't work. I tried to repair again and it worked. Then it refused to turn on so I replaced the batteries (again) and it works just fine now.

Good Luck!!!

Just to follow up on the post by Blu2aRox If you don't have the software you can download it here: The "Back" button is the arrow button next to the volume control (took me a while to figure that out). You hold down the back button when you plug it into the pc, and windows will recognize it, and the magnavox software will ask if you want to repair it. I had to do it twice - the first time the software said it failed to repair. But I think that was because Windows was still installing the device - if I had waited for that to finish it might have worked the first time. Thanks Blu2aRox! Works great again.

How do I load songs from my computer to my mp3 player? Also, how do I delete songs from my mp3 player?

Copy the songs from their location and paste them in your MP3s drive.
Or better yet use the windows media player/winamp to sync.
you can delete them the same way you add them.
use the windows explorer or windows media player/winamp
