    I have used my Craig MP3 player once then it stopped working. The Battery won't charge. I have contacted the company and have alerted the business where I bought my Craig that they possibly may want to research the problems with Craig. As I read through a mountain of problems posted on the website with Craig, maybe their product is just a piece of crap.

    I have the same problem with my mp4 player. The hour glass is on the screen when I power up and it won't go any farther than that. I am not able to open the case so I'm not able to remove the battery to try to reset it. Got any ideas?

    I bought A mp3 player model # CMP622E In November 2008. Worked good for a while. The battery died, but I waited for 2 days to charge it.

    When I plugged in the usb to charge, i left it for almost 4 hours. I will see the hourglass icon, and if I 'm lucky my menu will pop up. but that has'nt happen too often. Costumerservice will tell you to use the original usb cable or replace the battery.

I found if I turned the unit on and let the battery drain completely, then plug it into the the computer and let it recharge for 12 hours, the player works fine.

It is apparently a charging issue...

Hope this helps.

Hi there,

I bought- like the rest of you an mp3/mp4 player”no name” at a reasonable prise which was 390, - Danish crones which approx equals 33 UK. £. The player is equipped with 8 GB of solid state flash disk.

At the beginning at delivery it contained a video with UK. Football stating that they believed to win the upcoming world cup In football (soccer) and this song I at thee beginning found quiet funny – I don´t want a hear it ever more.

After having added several videofilms and approx 100 mp3 music favourite hits I was looking forward to take it to Greece on the upcoming vacation.

At the first glance all looked well – but as soon as I was going to go to select another directory (map) the fuc…. Time glass came on. The player restarted and my confusion began to rise would this glamorous player go to work or what?

Several hours later I realised I had to reformat it.
So I did so.
The power went down in the middle and my confusion began ton rice.
Again I found out (not stated in the short manual that I received along with it) that the computer input power via the sub wasn’t enough for the whole process.

So I powered it with the live mains adaptor fort 2 hours and..

After several attempt I succeeded and started again – my conclusion to make this story short –
Add only the music you want hears and that goes for the video as well!
If ever the time glass should appear try to select another function switch it of by pressing the off button don’t use the switch it your mp4 player has one.
Then try select some games and finally select the area function that caused the player tor restart or show the time glass if it should happen maybe you have to reformat the player (mother fu….) and at a several times to make it work - mine is finally working at the time writing this.

Have a nice summer
Looking forward to see video photos hear music reed text as my upcoming summer in Greece is

Best regards

My mp4 player (craig model#CMP616F)will only flash an hour glass, what do i do?

Mine did the same thing. I talked with a guy at the company and he told me it was frozen. What you need to do is let it run till the entire battery is dead. Than recharge it completely. For 4 hours at least. That should reset it. Now my player works fine.
Good luck.

Craig mp4 players

try hookin up to the computer USB Port, and see if there is a charging Icon On The MP4 Player. leave it hooked up to the computer for 2-3 hours, then try it.
if non of this works, the internal batterys dead.
you can get replacements for these if you need 1.
theres a lot of chinese companys, that supply replacement batterys as spares.

My craig 256mb mp3 player wont work.

Quite frankly, my Craig MP4 is new and broken. It is a piece of garbage...Just get rid of it, don't put any more money into it. I just bought a used Creative Zen for $65 on Amazon....It is 500% bertter and there is no disappointment.
