Ok...the obvious question...are the batteries new and have you replaced them.
now for the bad news------..

from experience, mp3 players can become corrupted and they need formatting. Yes, just like a computer.
If you have the device in your computer, go to the drive it's in...right click on it and see if you have a "format" options. If now, which mp3 player is it....there should be available software from the manufacturer..
I hope you have all the music on your computer already and you weren't uploading them from your mp3.

Yes....formatting the little players can be a pain the the port...but they are salvagable .....considering what they are worth ....and what value we get from them....they are definately worth it..

Let me know if you need further assistance with it..
