Re: Interupted download after reformat... frozen.

I had a similar problem, although mine kept saying my mp3 wouldn't take subscription music. I just don't use wmp. I have set up so my music downloads to a music folder and then just copy files to my e drive.

Cant find the firmware version that was on it it

When my computer wouldn't recognize my Pearl, these are the steps I followed after downloading the firmware upgrade from
This program installed firmware v1.2.5.0

remove the battery,
start the program,
hold the play button while plugging into usb,
release the play button when the term "initializing" replaces "searching",
click the start button to replace the firmware.

You might want to try leaving the "format data" box unchecked the first time. If that doesn't work and allow you to backup your music, bite the bullet and format the data area.

After I did this, my pearl started normally, and my computer recognized it again. It also fixed my aac-error problem after I did it a second time and allowed it to format.

RCA Opal 8 gb mp3 player stuck in initializing mode

I had this problem. I had to really try several different things to get the software to recognize the mp3 player. RCA does have download software that will format your MP3 player and put the firmware on the player. It would be better to get the firmware on without formatting if you have files already on it. Just be sure that you get the screen that shows it is connected to USB.

My Ipod is frozen

OK what you need to do is reset it. To do this you will need to hold down the menu and select buttons simultaneously for approx 6 seconds until the apple logo appears on the screen. This should reset and un freeze your ipod.

Try this and let me know how you get on.

MP3 Frozen

go to and then to support. You need to upload the current firmware for model MMP8565.. I downloaded the firmware program and followed the instructions, it fixed all the problems I was having with the mp3 player. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully, it may get a little tricky if you are not somewhat computer literate.

You should let the battery be flat and then charge it.
It'd then work. It happened to me twice. Hope this helps.

Sansa m250 freeses on power up

throw it against the wall because sandisk is aware of this problem and does nothing about it... they should replace them for free but they don't... race condition in that firmware screws the player up...
