Re: Problem

Maybe cause by a corrupt boot loader in the device, upgrading the firmware will help resolve this issue. Perform Recovery mode on the player. Enable Hold Switch + Press and hold record button + Press And hold menu or power button until it says on the screen welcome to recovery mode. Then download the sansa firmware updater on your computer and perform the update.

Froze up totally

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.

Craig mp3 1gb player cmp580d

this is a no brainer.....first thing I did was set up (formatted) the player with the disk drive utility supplied with mp3 player. Next you add in your MP3 songs. Turn on your player and with the mode button...go to MSC it will be highlighted black....then press in mode button to enter folder. Songs shouls be seen....and press power button to start.

Can't hear songs on my MP3

Are they .mp3's or .wma's? I haven't gotten .wma's to play, but .mp3's work fine.

You may also want to try creating a folder in the player that contains your music. Shouldn't matter, I know, but you know what that's worth.

Opal mp3 1g

Sorry I don't know where the "Profiling requires 4mg of free space" came from. But one thing I do know is that one GB of space should hold up to approx 600-650 songs unless they are WAV files then they take up 30 megabytes per song.

Hope this helps

Same thing

Hi, you can try to upgrade the player's firmware, you can download it from the RCA Website (moz-screenshot.jpgmoz-screenshot-1.jpg, the firmware it's the second app listed.
If your computer doesn't recognize the player, you'll have to turn it off and keep "PLAY" pressed for 10 seconds while connecting it to the USB port, then update the firmware.

Device keeps shutting off by itself and won't synch

Make sure the songs are in the right format. Napster is a real bear about disappearing songs - try another music svc.
