Dead Hard Drive?

I was listening to my player this morning when the sound cut off abruptly. The display sceen was a mixed up jumble as though it had cut and paste information over itelf in layers. The display lights up, but the hard drive does not seem to access the info. When I hook up to usb I am toldit is not connected. I've had it about 3 years.... is this the end?

The sceen isn't showing anything. It was just working and now its not showing a display or charging.

try turning off the device and then turning it back on and listen to those sounds that it makes. if it does make any sound, gotta be a problem with the display.

1995 Kia Sportage RADIO DISPLAYS ''hold''

hold is displayed when the power has been abruptly cut, like huge surge from dead battery, and someone jumped off car for examlpe.
Sooo, the fix is take out the radio, get the serial number off radio and take number to Kia dealer and they can look up the code to reset it.

Radio cuts out

yes it sounds most likely like an ant amp, and it is not that hard to replace, the best way to determine it is a new one since it is intermit, it is located in the C-pillar i think on the pass side but i could be wrong all you have to do is remove the light from the trim piece detatch the top part the pull up it sits in a groove, looks like a small white plastic box

Corrupt portable drive

I had the same problem with my WD passport. Most of the folders displayed wierd characters and couldn't access those folders. Thanks to Zero Assumption Recovery software, I had successfully recovered all my files. Check this link on how it works:

Creative zen malfunction with usb,Device not recognized

It looks like you need to restore the firmware on this players. There is a firmware utility. Sometimes though the creative player will not even be recognized by the firmware utility. Listen to the player and make sure the hard drive spins. If it does you can send it to a Creative Zen Repair service. They will take the hard drive out and write the firmware directly to the hard drive to get you up and running again.

My daughter's new ipod 4gb has picture but won't play sound and the pictures of the artists are all jumbled.

I would try restoring it in Itunes and then sync the musics on to it again. If this has not worked I would format the hard drive when it pops up in My Computer and then restoring it and sync in itunes.
