Welcome to the world of Microsoft Windows Updates - late 2007-early 2008. Ever since the mid-Novemebr Windows Updates, there have a been a rash of problems with players that worked just fine previously. The protocol before was that every mp3 player was an MSD or Mass-Storage Device. Now the protocol is that most players have to be a MTP or media transfer protocol device.

Try resetting the device by inserting a small #1 paperclip into the reset hole. Hold it in for a good 15 to 20 seconds - the player will shut off and then power up again.

When you say that the firmware upgrade failed, did it fail to upgrade the firmware, or did the firmware upgrade fail to resolve the freezing issue? I know for a fact that the firmware upgrade is good on the website.

As far as the computer not recognizing the device, I have often found that restarting the computer rather than the player will resolve the issue. In fact, I had more trouble with my Rio back in 2005 than I do now. In those early days, I was always restarting my computer over and over to get it to read.

Let me know if you have continued problems.

My mpio mg100 keeps freezing, i have to keep resetting it?


Hello

The freezing may be as a result of;

Outdated Firmware
1. Every few months,the manufacturer will publish a firmware update designed to fix bugs in the previous firmware and improve the overall function of the device. To check for updates, connect your player to your computer and open the player software. If you are connected to the Internet, the software will automatically check for updates. If an update is available, a notification window will pop up. Click on the notification to start the new firmware download.

After downloading it installs the new firmware automatically and you are good to go

The freezing might also be as a result of corrupt firmware and you will have to re-format the player,the firmware and all the content will need to be wiped and re-installed.

To do this, you will need to connect your player to your computer,. Launch Windows Media Player while the device is plugged in. Click on the "Sync" button. You should see your player pop up at the bottom of the device list. Left-click once to highlight it, and then right-click to bring up a sub-menu. Select "Format" from the list. All of your content will be deleted and the firmware will be reinstalled.

My remote keeps freezing and i have to take the battery out to restart. Now when I put the battery in it says safe mode. What can I do now


Hi. If your remote is freezing all the time, the firmware probably needs to be updated. Doing this will also get the remote out of safe mode.

1- Click on 'Downloads' at the top of the screen in the software.
2- Click 'Firmware' and follow the steps to update the firmware on the remote.
3- Update the remote.

Hope that helps

My Rio carbon keeps freezing up


Your internal microdrive is probably playing up. You can either get a new microdrive (can be found in old ipods) or a CF card (sandisk CF ultraII work) or buy a new one.

Installed new update to fix freezing problem - created new one


I had the same problem. Mine originally stopped at 23/92 files. Then after a cool night, I started it again in the morning and got 91/92 files loaded before it started to fail again. I left the disk in and after about 20 fails in a row, it finally loaded!!! Recommend you just leave it in there and it should work. good luck

Zen v plus


Have you tried updating the firmware of your Zen V Plus? I've had mine for almost an year and haven't had these issues -- I updated the firmware as soon as I unpacked it.

try downloading the
MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?

I hope it won't keep freezing on you after the update


good luck
