    Btw I checked the error details and it said the cause was "blue screen" so I'm guessing maybe it's my RAM idk. what do u guys think? and if it is my RAM do I replace both sticks?

It seems your new HDD is not formatted properly there are few bad sectors so u need to format once more. Thats a page file error once your OS detected you new HDD it started using root of that HDD for pagefile.sys and that fall on bad sector which generated delayed write and in turn you got dun dun dun.

SONY NWD-B105 it says BOOT ERROR and it shut down


Hey,FRIEND!! I actually found out a solution regarding on the problem by myself,accidentally, lol. As you guys mentioned, everytime you try to play a song, the device automatically turned off itself. Now, i'll tell the trick behind. You may simply hold the "Play/Pause" button and don't let it go. At the mean time,try to select song by pressing "Next/Previous" button. The moment you select song, you let go the "Play/Pause" and hold it on again within a million second (that's mean you need to do it damn fast). Right now, you're listening your favourite song,but you can't just let your thumb keep pressing the "Play/Pause" button,right? Here is the "HOLD" button comes to work, you flip the "HOLD" button to activate it. TADA! You can let go your thumb and relax yourself with the songs playing. The battery will eventually dies out,nevermind though, you always can recharge it. Repeating these steps everytime you want to listen songs, my mp3 actually fixed on its own. I admit that it's still not the best solution it appears to be,but you guys should really try it out, you're not just going to give up your mp3 like that,agree? haha, all the best and good luck!
IT IS EFFECTIVE, PLS RATE IT, THANKS

My ipod nano has a white screen


Try this - it at least seems to have fixed the same problem, at least for now, with my 2nd generation Nano:

1. When you see the white screen, hold down both the Play and Select buttons together, pressing the Play button a little bit before the Select button.
2. When the white screen goes to black, release the two buttons almost simultaneously with the Select button released slightly before the Play button.
3. Hopefully, if done with the right timing, you should get your normal screen back. If not, try switching the Hold on and off or changing the starting mode by listening through headphones to see if it is playing or not.
4. Once you have recovered the screen, plug it into your computer to sync without turning it off and perform a complete sync. After I did this my Nano stayed in the normal screen mode. Before I had done this step, it kept reverting to the white screen.

One more thing to try if this still doesn't work is to first try restoring the Nano completely through iTunes.

I'll be interested to hear whether my solution works for anyone else.

Loading My ITunes library into new Sansa Clip


Hey guyi,

According to information provided by the manufacturer (Sandisk), the Sansa Clip MP3 player can use two different methods to upload songs: a simple drag-and-drop interface, or syncronizing the player with Windows Media Player.

With the traditional drag-and-drop interface, you would need to connect the player to your computer and select the "Open device to view files using Windows Explorer" option when it is presented. Once you have done this, you should be able to double-click on the "Sansa" player and then the "Music" folder. After this folder has been opened, you should be able to drag and drop (or copy/paste) the files into this folder to upload them to the player.

For more information or instructions on how to add files to your Sansa music library using Windows Media Player however, you may wish to refer to your owner's manual or the following link on the manufacturer's website:

http://www.sandisk.com/assets/File/Downloads/user-guides/clip-usermanual.pdf

Unfortunately Windows Media Player does not currently appear to support the ability to directly import iPod playlists, but if you keep most of your music files in the same folder/directory on your computer, both programs should be able to share the same music library. Please keep in mind that this may only apply to music that you loaded onto the computer yourself and other unprotected file formats that both programs recongize (like .MP3 files), and may not necessarily apply to copy-protected songs downloaded from iTunes or other online music services.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
