Anything unusual happen to the player before the problem started? Dropped it or perhaps unplugged it from pc while synchronising?
The most likely fixable problem is a loose connector on the HDD/main board cable, or a failing battery/power adaptor giving the HDD a voltage too low.
unfortunately however the HDD on these players is a bit vulnerable to rough treatment.
When you connect it to a computer, does it still appear as normal or is it not recognised etc. What operating system PC are you using - perhaps formatting from the PC first before trying to install the firmware will help.
Are you using the latest firmware from Dell or are you using a cd that came with the player?
Is your player still under warranty or do you want to try and open it up and have a check yourself.
Let me know more info and what you wish to try :)
Sounds like a corrupt file system. Assuming you are using Windows, If you can view the disk in My Computer, right click on the drive, select properties, tools tab, in the error checking option select check now. You may also be able to format the drive by right clicking on the mp3 player's hdd and selecting format, then quick format. Copy any music you wish to keep though on a separate drive as format will erase it.

I had the same problem with my mp3 player. The problem seems to be that the charge had been depleted - even though the screen said the charging was complete when I plugged it in. Disregard the screen, charge your machine for two hours, and if your player is like mine, it will be functioning properly afterwards. Hope that helps.
