Re: Won't work. It turns on only when connecting to PC/

First check the battery to make sure it's in correctly. Remove the back panel to do this and look for the contacts. Make sure they align correctly with the contacts on the battery.

Try depressing the reset button which is next to the HOLD switch for about 5-10 seconds.

Attempt to power up the device on its own. If it powers up then try clearing all data and resetting to default.

Connect the device to a PC and see if it connects. Perform a full formatting to FAT-32 (or FAT-16). Eject and disconnect the device after the formatting is completed. Atempt to power on the unit on its own.

If all works you can try to load one song and see if it'll play. If yes, then use as normal.

How To erase songs from my mp3 player

Connect your player to your PC. Open Windows Media Player or Windows Explorer, and select the player on the left panel (the device will display as Player or GoGear, depending on the device you have). Once the contents of the player are listed, you can delete content you don't want.

I want to erase music of my ipod nano

Go to itunes and click on a song that you want to delete and press the delete button on your keyboard and it will ask you if you are sure you want to delete this song from all playlists and off the ipod and click yes and it will delete. Unfortunately, it will not let you delete it from the ipod menu without connecting it to a computer.

How to delete music off of the ipod shuffle?

You can either do a restore:
Connect to your computer and open itunes.
When you first open itunes you should be in "Devices"
Make sure you're in the "Summary" tab and you will have a button that says "Restore"
Click that and it will do the rest.

Sync with an itunes library that has no files on it, this will also remove the files from your ipod.

Changed pc and new pc cannot work with ipod

You can download a developers version, not the final product of Songbird. It works just like itunes, but less problematic. It will allow you to "mount" the ipod as a disk, then you can save, the songs to your PC. It will ask you if you want to sync with it, just say no and you will be able to view the contents. I didnt make Songbird, I have just used it recently for the same problem. Best of Luck.
