    Sorry, what I tried to
    say is that I have two problems.

    1) When I turn on my mp4 (using the battery, unplugged of the PC) it displays a
    busy icon (hourglass) in the screen all the time, it never starts, so I can't
    use it, I can’t listen or see nothing.

    2) The other problem is when I connect to my PC, I turn on the mp4 and Win XP
    does not recognize it.

    I could use it for some moths but after I got sleep using
    the mp4 turn on all the night, those problems start.

    No, I don't see nothing. The first/only thing I see is the hour glass.

    sounds like it got a corrupt memory, do you get any menu to format or anything before the hour glass?

    is there any rest a small hole in the unit where you could reset the unit?
    the only other thing would be to take apart and see if theres an internal battery and i would disconnect that.
    that about as much help i can be.

Frozen hourglass symbol on mp4 screen

If you are using Mac, you must use USB to connect to connect to itunes. If you are using Windows you MUST use Firewire. I don't know why this is but each system won't recognize the other's connection medium. Make sure you are using the correct cable. If my wire connection doesn't work then it is reversed. Try it the other way around. The only other thing I could think of is that you are trying to upload an MP4 that the system doesn't recognize. try a format converter if this is the problem, they can either be demoed or bought four 20 bucks or so.

Sony (chinese) MP4 player with hour glass frozen screen

Try resetting the player. There should either be a button for that (possibly on the back) or holding certain buttons together may prompt it. Check your player's user guide as it will certainly say how to restart it. If you can't find out how to restart it, try disconnecting the battery.

Hourglass frozen on screen!!

Try and plug it in your computer once again and see if the hour glass budges. Then safely remove it by clicking the "Safely Remove Device" Icon on your PC tray (where the clock is on a PC)...

If not, theres probably a software reset hole at the back or sides of your mp4 player, try pushing it with a toothpick or similar pointed thing.

If all else fails, have it replaced...
