I've uploaded ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED on this rapidshare link, I format my player and bringit back to life with only this...
http://rapidshare.com/files/106001227/Player.rar.html

1.- unrar to the player
2.- try if it works, if not go to 2.1
2.1.- install the software, included in the rar file, then try if it works it should

IMPORTANT: when you have manage to make it work do this, it will save you a lot of time

1.- browse your player to the system/data folder and backup those files, if you get any future troubles (like no music found, strange characters instead of artist's list) replace those files with your backup, backup those files always after adding new music!!!

2.- save the rar file I've uploaded, if you have the wmp plugin already installed and you get the "Oh dear this hard disk doesn't work" message again, just format the player, and put every single file from the rar to the player

Why my Centon digital mp3 player say,no mp3 files, when really there is a lot of them,when I put into the pc there are the files


I had this happen to me too! what I found is that the Mp3/mp4 converter I used was an older version than the player , it was mere a problem of format , it was different . how I found out was I downloaded one song to it in the proper format without using the converter and it worked fine , Then the light bulb over my head went on ! that's it a format issue !!

How do i format the harddrive of a Virgin mp3player 5 gb


Here is an easy way to delete what you no longer need...
BE REALLY CAREFUL NOT TO DELETE THE FIRWARE NEEDED TO PLAY YOU MP3 PLAYER.

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.
BE CAREFUL and do not delete files needed to operate your MP3 player.

How to load songs on to it?


If the player is MSD (Mass Storage Device) compatible, then a drive should show up in My Computer when you plug it in. Simply copy your songs to this location.

If the player is not MSD compatible, you must use the software that came with the player.
