Sony (chinese) MP4 player with hour glass frozen screen

I have a Sony (IGB) 2in LCD MP4 player . The screen is frozen with an hourglass display and when I connect it to the pc, the pc recognizes it but cannot install drivers for it. It comes as other devices in the device manager . How can I fix this problem?

    I tried resetting . But does not help. I tried holding the buttons together . Looks like this is a common problem as I have read this in lot of forums.

    There is no model number since it is a chinese make. It is a 1 GB 2" LCD with sd card slot. tried reinstalling the drivers but I get a message that the drivers for the particular device is not found. Previously my computer recognized it without any drivers as a USB removable disk.

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.

    Could you give me the model number so I can further assist you? Did you try reinstalling the drivers (downloading the newest ones from Sony)? Did the computer previously recognize it and not have any driver problems with it when you connected it?

that mp4 player's virus might have spread and corrupted certain files... Chinese Mp4 Players often contain viruses that are type: worm. you're going to have it reformatted... or the best, get it replaced. yours might have the worm type virus. So good luck!

Please note that you may not have a genuine Apple iPod. iPods don't have hourglasses, and don't say MP3 or MP4 Player on them. The cable should also go into the player via a wide flat plug. To check to see if you have a genuine ipod, put your serial number into .
That said, You may want to try formatting the player. Your Firmware could be corrupted. If it works with itunes, click restore. Otherwise, right click the drive in my computer and select Format.

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...
