I have one of these been tampering with it for a couple months
just tried something...
HOLD the power key and plug the usb at the same time DONT RELEASE THE POWER KEY
be sure that the firmware programm is running before
after 30 second the programm has found the player hit START to flash the firmware DONT RELEASE THE POWER KEY
Aflter flash is done release power key unplug USB and power the unit on VOILA! a working MC5102 or 5104 a bit tricky but doable!!!

"Boot Error, Sutting Down"

You may have let a magnet get near the mp3 player. Go to "My Computer" Then double click on the Mp3 player. You will see "Internal Storage" Icon. Right click it and click format. You will lose all data on the device. Also upgrading to 3.003 does not fix the Boot error problem.
