It's not working...

Okay so a few days ago my nephew was playing with my mp3 player. I told him to put it down so he threw it. Okay so i freaked out and checked it everything seemed fine and it played and everything. So a few minutes ago I was sitting there listening and I attempted to switch a song. It switched twice then froze and it went to the black standing by screen. Now it won't do anything. I need help!

The Opal has a reset hole on the back of the unit in which a toothpick (non metallic) can be inserted to reboot the player.
If this does not work, I suggest that you reformat the player by using the WindowsTM format command on the unit. To reformat the memory

  1. Right click on the device within the Explorer or My Computer window
  2. Select the format command (full format) to reformat the internal memory of the device.
  3. Reinstall the firmware from

My son's Sony Walkman MP3 player went through the washing machine a few days ago. Now it will not turn on, but I'm still able to attach to the computer and see how much space he has left, his music, and...

Try putting it in a bag of uncooked rice, and in the refrigerator for a day or two.

I don't know why or how this works, but I picked up the trick while working at Radio Shack.

plug it in, then use itunes to restore your ipod to factory settings. Update it then when you want to put music onto the device drag the music over onto yout playlist/music folder for your ipod, click and drag the song you want to your ipod, do not release your mouse button until you see the +copy appear.

Help turning on

Push the play/pause button and hold it down for a few seconds until the light turns on. Once the light is on and solid push it again. The light will blink while it is playing songs.

My sandisk e260 wont play songs i down loaded

Well, I may have a solution. Some music websites or "free" mp3 websites put a type of license or protection thing on the files that you download so that when you try to listen to them, you can only use certin software/music players and also make it so you cannot use any of the files on your mp3 player/iPod. I tried a place called and they say you get 20, or so, free downloads BUT you can only use their music player for them. And the funny thing is, they have avertisements in about half of the packages of new mp3 players in the market. Try looking at their policy or license on the website to see if you can put the songs on your mp3 player. Good luck, and have a nice day.
