Mp3 player freezes at initializing screen

Plug it into the usb device.
Hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Go to the RCA website download the latest firmware and install it.
That fixed mine and a few other people I know that have one.

Turn off the player after turning it off. Perform recovery mode ( Enable hold switch + Press Record button + Power/Menu button ) until it says welcome to recovery mode and perform the update for the player. Then after doing that you may have to format the player. :D

Loading circle constantly onscreen

Try formatting, synch your library using a synch software like media player, realplayer, media monkey etc. Do not remove the USB if it is 'Updating'.
