    My song names won't show up! I can listen to them but I have to guess which song is which. I asked a friend and I guess i-pods do the same sometimes, and that if you let the battery die then recharge it, the problem will be solved. I tried it but now the names are there, but it mixes them up! I'll click on one song and it will be a totally different song!!!

Hi Tony,
This Is A Firmware Problem With Your MP Player.
The Firmware, Is A Small Program Flashed Onto A Memory Chip In The Player.
Whats Probably Happened Is That The Firmware ( the MP3 Players Operating System Instruction ) Has Been Corrupted.
Some Players are supported By The Manufacturer, to have firmware update downloads. wherby you,ll download a small file, and re-flash the device.
****Warning a Firmware Flash May Render Your Device unusable**** If the Flash Is Corrupt Or Incomplete, The Device May never Function Again. it is suggested that if a firmware update is downloadable, you should only download from a reliable source. And Backup your Existing Firmware If and Where possible. Always follow the manufacturers Instruction To The Procedures Listed.
**** Alternative Option:- If the Player Is Detected As A device by your Computer. You Can Right Click And Format. This Can Sometimes Remedy The Problem, But May Also render The Device Useless. Do Some Research For Attempting Either.
****** I Accept No Liability For My Proposed Suggestions****
Only Offer Help And Advice, To Solving Problems**

I have a Gogear aria black phillips 8bg mp3 player..playlist help

This is a good little player (although I don't kow why tey dont' include the actual manual for it)

It took me a bit BUT I found the manual online:

After you've created and saved your playlists...then clear the sync pane.

Then on the far left where all your playlist names are...highlight the ones you want and drag them into the sync menu. then click "Start sync".

After it's done I promise you all your playlists will be there complete with the music you added to the list

Trying to upload music...Names of the songs do not come up.

You may not need to format your player. Depends on how your songs are named, are you working with mp3's or wma's? Some software to name or tag wma's do not transfer the names to other players if not sync'ed togrther. Same for some mp3 tags. If your computer is a Vista you may have to go into compatibility mode to install - also Xp has some same features of backwards compatibilty. Try to download new software from manufacture. Then try and find freeware mp3 / wma tagging software. re-tag a few songs and see if they come up on screen. Dont format untill there is no other opption.

Song names in X20

i think you should try this...
if you dont already, download iriver plus 3
install it
open iriver plus 3
plug in iviver
go to tools>Portable Device>Disk Initialization

this should format your iriver and replace all the original files

i reccomend only putting music, video, pictures and ebooks on via iriver plus 3

and also please make sure you safely remove the iriver each time you connect it to the computer
if you dont, there is a chance that you will screw your iriver, you may have heard of the "building library" problem, which nobody has found a solution for yet.

i hope this helps you!!
good luck!

New songs= black screen

I had dropped it about 6 inchs and didn't think that that would cause any problems. My player would not power up. The blue light was the only thing that came on. I tried the soft and hard resets and nothing worked. Windows detected it as a tango media device and had no drivers for it. I finally took it apart and found that a board on the back of the player had come off. I plugged it back in, put it back together and it works again! I wouldn't suggest doing this if the player is still under warranty.

Wont connect

Try using Windows Media Player (version 11 should be fine) to sync music files to it. Using drag-and-drop to the device folder only sometimes works (and usually doesn't).
