BOOT ERROR - SHUTTING DOWN

I tried turning on the mp3 player but "BOOT ERROR - SHUTTING DOWN" appears. I tried to reset it again but it says the same thing whenever I turn it on! I even tried to format it but it couldn't as it just says to "INSERT DISK INTO DRIVE E:! Meaning it cannot read from the MP3 player! It looks normal though on the mp3 as it say "USB CONNECT" as battery is charged! I really need your assistance on this issue as soon as possible!


PLEASE HELP ME!!

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

It keeps sayin boot error shutting down everytime i try to turn it on


Hello,

the software files of your player is corrupt and that's why its showing boot error.

The player needs to be flashed for the player to boot well again.

Take care

When I turn my player on it says boot error, shutting down I have songs on it and have been using it for five months. This is a new problem. Memorex mmp8567


Memorex=3M. Like the video tapes, it's guaranteed for life. There's probably nothing you can do yourself if it uses MTP as opposed to UMS, otherwise you could just format it on your PC and start over.

It seems i have over charged my sand disk player so right now when i switch it on it says battery too slow and then it shut down it self, please i need a help to this problem .


Hi teddyabout,

There are few reasons your SanDisk Player is acting up. Here are some things to try out.

Make sure the HOLD switch is turned off before you power up your player. This will sometimes cause errors in booting.

If that doesn't work you can try a soft-reset by holding the power button down for 15 seconds then try turning the player on normally again.

Finally, if you are brave enough, you can take the battery out of the player to force a complete reset of the player and battery. This is done by taking the four screws out of the back of the player and removing the battery. After 30 seconds, put the battery back (be sure the it is seated properly) and replace the screws.

Good luck

"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.
