Question about Dell Pocket DJ MP3 Player
It's been a while since I was having this problem, and I no longer have my DJ so this solution is coming out of memory...
Press and hold the play/pause button on the player while you click the reset button with a paperclip or something...
Continue holding the play/pause button until the player restarts into recovery mode (should be under 30 seconds).
From the recovery mode menu you have a couple different options, I would select the option which says something like "find errors" or "scandisk" (I forget exactly what it's called). If it comes up with a scanning progress bar which takes several minutes to complete it's actually scanning the disk; if the progress bar blows through in only a few seconds, and or you hear odd repetitive clicking coming out of the device (or don't hear the whirring of the hard drive at all!!), that's usually a tell-tale sign of a hardware failure of the hard drive.
This is the first and safest option in attempting to recover your player without risking data loss, the next options involve reloading the firmware which can result in data loss, and formatting the disc which will result in data loss but try this option first before doing anything else...

The same thing happened to me. All you have to do is wait for the dell's battery to die then recharge it and it will work just fine
