There should be a lock/unlock button on the opposite side of your mp3 player other buttons. Slide the button to the left, and it should unlock. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: My sansa MP3 player is locked. How do I unlock

I loved that mp3 player, it's a great basic one. Anyways...

To unlock it, it require nothing related to your computer, it's on the side of your player, the old button.

Near the mic. I believe right now it's on a side with orange, tick it to the side that shows white. Open it again, should be unlocked.

How to turn off write protection


Look for a switch or button on the side of your MP3 player.

It might have a lock/unlock symbol on it, or read "HOLD."



This switch effectively disables the player so it doesn't turn on in your pocket when you don't want it to.



Move the switch to the "Unlocked" or "NO HOLD" position to remove write protection.

This position may also be labeled "R/W" for "read/write."


If you have no switch, continue to next Step.


Check with your manufacturer documentation and support.


Some players have options to securely lock them so data is not transferred or overwritten without permission.

Format the MP3 player.


This step should only be taken as a last resort because it will delete all files form your MP3 player.

To format, select "Control Panel," "Administrative Tools" and "Disk Management."


Select the MP3 player and click "Delete." Right-click on empty drive and select "New Partition." Follow the on-screen instructions to format.


hope this helps

My Sylvania MP3; touch screen is messed up... Well, the power/lock-unlock button is loose and will NOT turn off the MP3.. Nor will it unlock it. So when I try to select an icon with my pen, a lock pops up....


If you're a little bit tech savvy, you can open the player and fix the button yourself. It's pretty simple, but those who don't know what they're doing can mess things up pretty badly.
If you don't feel like doing that,
I'd suggest bringing it back to where you got it and getting an exchange!

My mp3 player froze while i was charging it and won't do anything


Creative Zen should have a reset button on the side, it is a very small hole that you will need a pin to push the button inside, hold the button for about 30 seconds. This should reset the player.

For the lock error or if you happen to see an error message on screen saying system locked unable to shut down or you cannot shut down your unit and a picture of a lock appears near the batterry indicator on the left side of your screen - Simply move the lock button on top of the unit to the left onto the orange area and this will fix your problem. This slide button is located next to the lock picture located on the top of your unit.

Dell DJ Ditty


We may be in luck - I actually found an owner's manual for this one. Did you run the installation CD first? If you don't, Windows will load it's own, possibly wrong, drivers.

Make sure you didn't accidentally press the player's lock button:
The keys on the Dell DJ Ditty have been locked.
Unlock the keys by pressing in on and holding the
Volume/Scroll/Select dial until the lock icon disappears.

Reset method - Insert the end of a thin object, such as a straightened paper clip, into the reset button (near the headphone jack).

Also make sure your operating system is Windows XP - it won't work on anything before or after.

The Musicmatch service that this player was tied to was discontinued in October 2007, so your going to have problems even if we get it working again. Use Windows Media Player 10 instead (downgrade if you have the current version 11 installed).

Let me know how everything turns out.

Coby MP-C7095 Won't turn on


On my Colby player there is a small reset hole in the back. Mine has sometimes just stopped playing and shuts off. If you use a small wire (paperclip works well) push it in and reset it.
