VISUAL LAND (VL-557) MP3 PLAYER - Technical Problems

Good day,
I got this MP3 player last christmas and I am having 2 problems with it.
- It seems to be affected by any kind of movement. For example, if I put in my pocket and walk around or something, it stops playing. But, I can hold on to it and shake it around but it still plays one. It does not make any sense.
- It has started skipping songs. It can skip up to 10 songs and then start playing again. No matter how I try to rewind to get back to the song before, it wont play as long as it skipped that song.

Please help. The manufacturer and reseller will not help with the problem. Thanks.

How do i add videos in this i am using realplayer sp thought i got the music right cant figure out how to put in vidoes

You have to make sure that the video you are downloading to the Visual Land VL-557 is of the right format. The format that this player uses is:
Video format: AMV only
Audio format: MP3 · WAV · WMA · ASF
Your player will not work with any other video format, I believe that is maybe your problem.
You can see the information for your MP3 player at this website:
You can download a free AMV video format coverter at this website:
Good Luck, I hope this helps
