Hi, As replied to several other similar brand/model problem posts - This is a common problem with MP3 players with almost a full memory. Apparently, the firmware gets messed up and eventually losses recognition of its purpose or some of the files it keeps. Sandisk has anticipated this problem and has posted online utilities just for this purpose. They are available at > Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turns up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

Why my angry bird mp3player just keep on playing one song..? how would i know my mp3 needs to be charged ?

Not knowing what player you have, I have to give a general answer. I think you pressed (or touched) the repeat button and did put the player to repeat the sone.
Check your manual. Next time you have a question, please add more details about brand and model of the device, so I could try to fid the manual and give more specific answers. Thanks.

I have MiTone mitmp32 , bought week ago in duty free shop in Netherlands. The problem is, when i try to change the album or artist in the main music menu, it always gets back to a specific song(album) that...

I have the same problem and it irritates me like crazy. A weird thing that seems to work is when you want to switch off your mp3 player, put it on pause and let it switch itself off automatically. When you next switch it on, it will be on that same song and not some random one you listened to ages ago. Seems to work for me. Do you have any idea how to play music on shuffle by the way?

I loaded songs onto my sons mp3 player from windows and when we try to play the songs it reads error format.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format. You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player.
You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track.
