Re: froze

Push the power button and hold in the volume button at the same time every time this happens. And this is an automatic restart system that u may use in any situation, like if the MP3 wont play a song for EX. If this does not help, post it on and i'll try to answer this in better detail...

Re: froze

Hold the power button down and the UP volume botton at the same time to reboot it.
If that fails youll have to le t the battery die and recharge it, that will reset it.

Can you keep player plugged into usb charger while playing music files indefinatly or will it over charge and possibly cause damage? im shopping around and am not even shure it will play while pluged in to...

You can keep the Sansa plugged in without fear of overcharging. The Sansa will play while it is connected to a USB port that is supplying only power, such as a USB charger operating off a car cigarette lighter. It will not play while connected to a computer.

My Zen will not do anything,it's froze.

If a reset does not work using the reset hole, then try this: First, back up all of your music and do this: Turn off the player and disconnect it from the computer. Then press and hold the play/puse button and turn it on simultaneously. The player should be in recovery mode. Scroll down and select format (all) and let it format. Then reload all of music back onto your player and it should work like new. Hope this helps!

Inoi MP3

I have the same problem, sometimes, if I plug it up to the computer, with usb port and press the computer option, keep pluging and unpluging over and over it will reset and starts working again. But it still fails, It may have something to do with the internal battery being weak. Even thought it shows charged, may not be able to supply the current required to start the hard drive.

Frozen, Can't Access Files in Neeon, not charging either.

first thing first, there are afew things that we had in common; we owned neeon and we both had windows vista.

why vista?

as sophisticated it may seems, vista had so many trouble with the product. I believe that when you try to format the product with vista, it all goes well. everything vanished, the songs, folders, even viruses gone as if it were a new born son. when it all seemed nothing happen, you copy a song on neeon, you unplug it and turn neeon on. voila! no music appeared!

actually, the problem lies with vista itself. the solution is simple actually, no downloading required. while vista can't get the job done, you still had it predecessor, the marvelous windows xp!

just format the product again on your xp. vista can only transfer songs and organize the folders.

old stuff works well with all version of neeon.

believe me, if i had not discover this sooner, i would had trashed my 5 GB mp3.

Not playing music

No Music Files Problem solved
Plug the MP3 player to PC
In Windows XP open Windows Explorer and navigate to one of the music files
Try to play the file in Windows
If it fails, unplug player and once the player switches off carry out a reset
Reconnect player to PC and repeat the process described above
You may need to repeat this several times until the music file plays in Windows.
After this format the player using Windows XP
Select the removable hard drive, right click and select format
Choose Fat32, enter a volume label (for example GMP33005) and select quick format
If formatting fails try several times
Once format is succesfull reload your music files using the software that came with the player
Be careful not to exceed 2.5 or 2.6 GB (leave some free space as this might be needed for the player to work)
The player should now play the music files correctly

Frozen again

There are many causes for the freezes all of which I have found so far to be operator error. Except for the firmware upgrade. Follow all manufacturers instructions for resets and reinstalls (read throughly before proceeding) and all will be well again. We have 2 sleek photos I found the users to main the problem (2-teenages). Corrupt files (pics & audio)cause freezes. Find them and delete them. Regular cleanup from the utilities menu)helps alot these units are mini-computers but they do not multitask well- cant push them.

Been frozen for about a week

You have to hit the reset button. You stick the end of a small paperclip or even the wire part from those garbage bag twist-ties into the reset button which is the hole on the bottom of the player. As you push the paperclip into hole you must hold down the PLAY button. This should put it into the Recovery screen or else it will just say "Rebuilding Library". If it goes into the Recovery screen you select CLEANUP and then YES. After it goes through cleanup which can take forever then it will will usually reboot on its own or if it goes back to recovery screen hit REBOOT after you have done CLEANUP.
