Re: my mp3 player...

You may have to find the reset button on your player and try that. You can also format the drive if plugged in to a computer. The device will show up as a new drive. Go to My Computer and look for the new drive, right click it and click Format. You want to format it but not with NTFS. That will erase everything including games.

I had songs and could listen but i got a new computer and went to charge my shuffel and now when i try to listen theres no music and the light blinks green then orange and no music playes how do i fix

It sounds like you did more than charge your shuffle. You must have also synced it with the iTunes on your new computer. When you synced it with a new computer, it asked you whether you really wanted to delete all of your songs from your iPod, and apparently you answered "Yes".

Copy your songs from your old computer or from your backup of your old computer to your new computer, import them into iTunes and sync again. That will recover your songs.

There are old audiofiles that I can't delete from my MPaxx Series 9 MP3 player. They don't show up on the computer screen, but they can be heard when listening to the MPaxx 900 series MP3 player.

Hi mike davi936...
Try deleting your songs that you do not want this way.
Deleting Files,Pictures,Videos,Audio Books, Apps,etc. from MP3 Player/Ipod
Hook up your mp3 player to your computer
Go to your desktop and double left click on "My Computer"
When it opens you will see listing that says "Devices with Removal Storage" your mp3 player should be listed there.
Right click on your mp3 player, and a window will open, right click on "Open" and now your files/songs should be visible.
Hold the left click down and drag it across all the files/songs that you do not want this will highlight the files/songs you do not want, release,right click and then click on "Delete"
Now you mp3 player should be clear of the files/songs you do not want.
Please take time to rate me thumbs up

I accidently went to settings and went to format and presses yes and it deleted everything i had. It happened like 6 months ago. Over the 6 months i have started over with putting songs on it and...

Unfortunately, you have likely overwritten the old songs by copying new songs.

One free product worth trying is Recuva (

Download and install Recuva, plug the mp3 player into your computer, and see what can be recovered. Even if you can see some of your old songs they might be corrupted so make sure to listen to them.

I hope this has been informative.

Dont know how to delete old songs

That's fairly easy actually, just connect it to your computer and open "My Computer". Then select the drive your MP3 player is located (like mine is E:, but yours may vary). If you look around, you'll find the music folder (or if in MSC, it's in the root folder). Just locate the song and right-click and delete.

Computer doesn't recognize songs on the player

Go to disc utility and click on erase volume, then you will be able to add new songs. Unfortunately, as far as I can tell, you may have to delete the entire volume and start over.
