Re: 30g video hang!

Well, there's no need to panic - your iPod disk is probably OK. Here are few suggestions that may help you unfreeze the iPod and get it working again.

Step 1. Reset the iPod - Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Now press and hold the MENU and center button together for 10 seconds or until the Apple logo appears.

Step 2: If the above trick doesn't unlock the ipod, leave the device as such to drain the iPod battery. Once it discharges completely, reset and plug it to the computer for charging.

Always keep your iPod firmware updated - you can use itunes to check the latest version of the software from Apple website.

We tested this hack with the iPod Nano though it should work on other models as well like the shuffle or the video iPods.

Re: 30g video hang!

These symptoms are common for hard drive problems. It will probably have shown you the sad face or folder icon by now (I see you posted in November). However, it may just be a coincidence so you should try using a different USB cable to connect the iPod to a different computer. If it recognizes it then, try restoring it.

No video software came with my Zvue Elvis Presley mp3 player now I can't put any on. What can I do? All the video's I want to put on it are in avi, mov, mp3, mp4, or mpeg form..

Conect the ipod player to the computer where controls are acquired. For example, the computer would provide accessibilty to the mp3 player. media playes like windows media player, real one player, apple media players, juke box media convertors are the audio, video management software programs on the computer. As long as the computer would acquire media as videos, the computer mediaprofram should provide the transfer buttons between external connectable devices like mp3 players. However, the media players have various compartibilities recognisable as media formats. The mp3 player should have dictated the compartible format that is capable of being encoded. Important notes includes that, mp3 playes would only encode medias that have been loaded onto the computer completely. For example, if wanting to acquire music transfer to the mp3 player device, the music CD has to be extracted first into the computers media player like windows media player from where transferability is achievable into the MP3 player. Usually, the computer media player should state that the feature functionality is capable of MP3 IPOD transfers. For example, once login to the windows media player software, copy available media files from the files library into the player list area to be manipulated as transfers/sync. Also, the media player of the computer should recognise connected media devices with popup logos indicating transfereabilities.

Unable to play songs on the Alba 512 mb Mp3 Player

Managed to fix it !

Windows XP or any other version had an issue in completely recognising the media player.
Every time I would plug in the MP3 players, Windows would show that a new hardware has been plugged in and try to set-up the drivers. It would also breifly recognise it as being a music player and assign drive E: and F: to it. However every-time I would try and select the E: or the F: drive to inspect its contents Explorer would hang-up and crash.

So I re-did this in MS Dos prompt mode. i.e. for thos who are not familiar do the following :

ClicK Start - Run - and type cmd to bring up the command prompt

then type cd\
and go to the root C:

Plug in the MP3 player and wait for the detection. Once detected on the C:\ prompt

Type Format E:\

Be Very Very Careful that you don't type ***** Format C: ***** otherwise that would be the end of your hard drive and all the data :-)

After the E:/ has finished formatting the control should return back to the C:\ prompt from where you would be able to type E:/ and go the E: drive

Unplug and plug the mp3 player again and now windows should be able to detect the player properly and not hang-up.

You may have just lost all the songs on the mp3 player but now the player is back into life. So start copying your songs and enjoy your player !
