I have fixed this, and I hate this player, however this is the solution

I've uploaded ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED on this rapidshare link, I format my player and bringit back to life with only this...
http://rapidshare.com/files/106001227/Player.rar.html

1.- unrar to the player
2.- try if it works, if not go to 2.1
2.1.- install the software, included in the rar file, then try if it works it should

IMPORTANT: when you have manage to make it work do this, it will save you a lot of time

1.- browse your player to the system/data folder and backup those files, if you get any future troubles (like no music found, strange characters instead of artist's list) replace those files with your backup, backup those files always after adding new music!!!

2.- save the rar file I've uploaded, if you have the wmp plugin already installed and you get the "Oh dear this hard disk doesn't work" message again, just format the player, and put every single file from the rar to the player

3.- excuse my english...
any further problems --> msn: sebastianoo7@hotmail.com

4.- help other virgin 5gb users

M4304 mp3 player building database then cuts off


I'm not sure if this is the correct thing to do, but it worked for mine. First, go to the RCA website and follow the instructions to update the firmware on your player. Second, disconnect the player from your computer when the install is complete. Then, turn your player on. Once the screen comes up that allows you to go through your folders and settings, turn it back off and re-connect it to your computer and upload your music. I tried to upload 3 GB of music at once and had to redo this process. So now I just upload a little music at a time.

Also, I found it is better to load your player with music through Windows Media Player than to use the software that comes with the player.

Here is the link to update the firmware:
