Did it shatter? Does it power on? If it powers on,then just perform a reset by inserting a small #1 paperclip into the reset hole either on the front or the top of the device -hold it in for 20-30 seconds, release and wait. The Rio should pwoer back on.

If it shattered, then we are in trouble. Rio no longer manufactures mp3 players. The Geek Squad will charge more to repair it, then it would cost to get a new Mp3 player.

When I turn it on I get an error message: Error: Reformat internal media as FAT16. If I let the screen go blank then turn it on again holding the button for about 10 seconds it does finally come on. What...

you may need to reformat it according to the computer you are using. If you, just select the drive in my computer(where your hard drive/cdrom/all that **** is) hit format, at the top there will be a drop down menu, click fat16 from there, then select quick format...should fix everything

Got no sound


You do not specify as to the exact drivers you need for your audio, but, all you need to do is reinstall the audio drivers for the specific OS you are using, and your sound should work again. Hope this can help you.

Best regards

Dark screen on zen v plus

Was the device dropped or damanged? The most common problem is a cracked screen. The crack is on the back so you can't see it. The screen will need to be replaced.

Hii! I Need Help!

This model does not support MP5 formats.

If the package says "MP5", it's because it's wrong.
If not, please update the firmware or find a customer service representative for repairing.

i'm thinking the hard drive is messing up... you know when i dropped my gigabeat S30 it wasn't working n it was freezing and the video files weren't playing at all. it would freeze when i turn on or play video. then i turned it off and then back on using the battery switch. it said "contact the manufacturer for repair" with a yield sign. i really thought i killed it...but i still had my hopes high to fix it myself somehow n i really thought it was from the hard drive. so i took it in my hand and gave it a shake on my palm. like i actually hit it on my palm for once n then i turned it on and it worked =D fineee.... i was so happy n now it still works fine ;)

i hope that helps
