SOURCE: Opening the case on Dell DJ 30GB
I have the opposite problem. I have opened my Dell DJ 30 and removed the battery. Where did you buy the battery?
To get access to the battery, you need to use a sharp knife (construction type). Cut the interface between the plastic bottom at the outside casing interface and remove the plastic in one piece. It is sort of glued to the bottom, but it comes off easy once the perimeter is free. Under the plastic cover, there are 4 philips head screws to remove a small metal covering plate. Once the plate is removed, you can see the connector for the battery. Remove the connector and then gently pull the battery out. There is nothing holding it in place except the friction of the other components inside. Mine came out easily. Now I need to buy a replacement battery.

I had the same problem and it turns out the firmware did get loaded, the program just didn't close out properly. If you go to Settings & Info-->Information on your DJ you should see that it is the updated version.

if your Dell DJ player is no longer recognized by the upgrade firmware even with the correct, original device driver installed, then you will need to install a windows 'MTP' driver by doing the following. Note that this applies to Windows XP only.
1. make sure you have the SP2 XP upgrade.
2. Install Windows Media Player 10 or roll it back to version 10 if you are using a later version. You can roll it back by going to 'Add or Remove programs' and uninstalling any WMP upgrade from the 'Change or Remove Programs' dialog window. Note: don't uninstall WMP enitrely from the 'Add/remove windows components' dialog.
3. Go get this file: fixup.zip Unzip it in a temporary directory and run the fixup.cmd by double-clicking in explorer or using the windows 'Run' command. Follow the instructions it prints in its DOS window about deleting the Dell device in the hardware manager.
4. plug your DJ player into the USB port. XP should now say 'Found MTP device' or something similar.
5. Get the Dell DJ 1.02 firmware from their support site appropriate for your player. Run the firmware upgrade. The software should detect your player this time.
A good reference for the Dell DJ stuff is here: gotzune.com
Note: I can't personally recommend the 'PlayForSure' firmware as I have not been successful upgrading to it. WMP 11 does not seem to work with the Dell DJ but WMP10 does and the device Sync function works just fine.
For almost ALL of the MP3 players out there that seem bricked due to a firmware upgrade failure or some other reason, they can be usually restored in a simlar way by installing a basic 'MTP' driver which allows windows to at least send a file to it, and by putting the player into a recovery mode as defined by the manufacturer.

I had a similar problem when I had to reload my Windows XP. The MusicMatch wouldn't recogzine my Dell DJ and I couldn't locate any plugins. I ended up on the Dell website and downloaded a copy of Dell DJ Explorer. This program uses Windows Explorer to manage the songs, playlists, etc. I used it on my Dell Pocket DJ (5 gb) and it worked fine (after a short learning curve).

go to the dell website, download the driver for windows XP, before installing the driver right click on the install icon, go to properties, securities and select "Run as Administrator". Now install the driver. This should allow you to run your driver and software. I have the 30 gig and it worked for me. good luck and I hope this helps.
