Frozen LG mp3 screen

I guess I transferred too many files? on my mp3 player and its now frozen on Rebuilding Library for some days now.I tried holding down the reset button -nothing works ?

When I connect it to the Computer -it isn't even recognised.
So I can't format it. When I try to charge the player a little while after
pulling it out - the screen goes dead saying "Battery Power is too Low"
THE model is JM53 mp3 player by LG -8gb.

Thanx alot

If you already try both reset, then try doing a firmware update.

On computer try unplugging computer power cable, and if it is a laptop also remove battery, this sort out problems related with electrostatic charges on computer USB ports.

First time MP3 player users.

Its a great pleasure to own a portable MP3 audio video player. You can carry your songs and favourite videos everywhere you go. Here, I am providing few tips on how to use your Philips MP3 player.

If you have an older version, you can simply use drag and drop method to transfer music from your computer to your MP3 player. You can also use Windows media player 11 to transfer music. Here is a link:

If the songs are DRM (Digital Rights Management) protected, please use Rhapsody to transfer them. You can refer to this link:

All new players use Philips Songbird software. You need to transfer the video and audio files using Philips songbird. You can also use drag and drop method for the audio files which are in MP3 format. You need to transfer the Videos to the Songbird library and then transfer them to your player. You can install Songbird from the CD that came in the box, or download it from Philips support site.

Here is how to Rip CD using songbird:
Insert the CD into your computer and launch Songbird.
Once the CD is detected, it will automatically show up on the Philips Songbird screen.
Click the "Rip CD" on the right hand side and the ripping process will begin.

You need to transfer the Videos to the Songbird library and then transfer them to your player. Here is how to transfer files from songbird to your MP3 player:
1. Click "File" in the toolbar and select "Import Media". Choose the folder that stored your media files.
2. Select the media files that you want to transfer and then Right Click to display a drop list (You can press and hold the Ctrl button on the keyboard to select more than one file).
3. Select "Add to Device" and "(Your player model)".
Or you need to go to Songbird library and then drag and drop the files to your MP3 player's icon on the Songbird software.

File system errors / possible firmware bugs.

Here are some observations.

With the internal memory formatted by the player itself:

1) The player always has multiple malformed root directery entries that don't show up as files in Windows Explorer. Particually, the "Services" folder is slightly malformed. On some systems, the Services folder won't show up in Windows Explorer (like Windows 98).

2) Any memory formatted by the player whether intneral or a microsd card, will be completely missing a partition table.

If the internal memory is formatted by anything else other than the player itself:

1) The player will not be able to write the library database and user settings to the internal memory. The song and artist names will always be "Unknown" and "rebuilding library" every time the player is truned on. The library database and user settings files show up as multiple zero length files in the root directory, one with the same name for each time the player is turned on.

2) The Audible directory will be created and filled with many, many garbage files with garbage names with very big sizes that don't actually take up memory space.

3) Trying to use a microsd card that was formatted by anyhing else results in the player hanging when rebuilding library when it tries to scan the external microsd card. The player has to be shut off buy holding the power switch.

Sony walkman NWZ-B135F doesnot turn on properly.. When turning it on 'Walkman' text appears and '.......' is appearing. after that no action.tried resetting also, no use

First guess. you have a large library and just added something. it is rebuilding its index

Second guess: you have other files than just music on here. it is rebuilding the library and has to scan all the non-mp3 files. Mine takes about 2-5 minutes to boot after adding / removing files

Reset with needle and while it is rebuilding library press and hold the center button it should take you to the format screen and get rid of the corrupted file by reformatting.

Try resetting it by inserting a paperclip into the reset hole on the side of the player, just under the on/off switch

if it keeps on rebuilding the library the disk had a bad spot on it try going in to recover mode and do a clean if that doesn't work do a format if that doesn't work download the latest firmware if that doesn't fix you will need a new hard drive or flash drive.

Zen frozen

Go to recovery mode, and do a disk clean up. If that doesnt work, then you might have to format it.

Did you reset it properly? To reset your zen, put a pen head in the hole under the power button for 20 seconds
