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.

check online for a reset. Should be a combination of your buttons, and volume all that jazz. If you can remove the battery do that and wait 5 mins. Plug back in. If you cannot remove battery then fix the factory reset (again look at their website or on this one)
95% of devices have this type of reset.
if that does not fix it then its broke.
good luck

I got water in my creative zen and it won't turn on. Is there any way of fixing this?


Probably not.
Remove the battery and place the player in a warm sunny dry place for several days until it drys out completely. Replace the battery, charge it and the see if will work.

My Philips GoGear MP3 won't turn on. Is there any way it can get fixed? I've tried resetting it but nothing happens.


(I "ASSUME" you charged it, or tried to). HOW OLD is your MP3 player??
If it's pushing 2yrs old, or played/used on a fairly regular/daily basis,
.....YOU MAY JUST NEED A NEW BATTERY.

Carefully peel up the UPC code strip on back of player. (There is a tiny screw underneath it)
Carefully remove screw. (The snap notches are 'L' shaped inside the edges of the case).
Gently slide/pry open the backside of the case, taking care NOT to break the snap notches.
Open case, REMOVE BATTERY. FIND/MATCH BATTERY TYPE. (look in WATCH batteries).
Place the new battery in player. Close case, restart/turn on player.

My Slick mp3 player is not working.Every time i try to turn it on it says loading but want go to the music or anything it just keeps saying loading.Please tell me what is the problem?


I have the same player, sounds like a hardware defect, there is not a lot of troubleshooting with these things, If a new battery and a re-format does not fix the issue, it is defective and needs replacement, they are cheap and i have seen them on the net for as little as 13$ i bought mine at a doller tree for 20$, get a new one, they are based on flash memory and flash memory tends to have issue after use due to the naure of the technology. if you want a mp3 player that is a bit tougher got for a Creative, ipod or a name brand with a warranty. ;)

The mp3 player's operating system is trying to load the songs which is not possible because most of the time itunes uses .aac format which is only compatible with ipods to fix plug into computer open device, and delete all the music files unplug and try turning on if sucessful plug back in ad load mp3's or wma's using windows media player

Gigabeat Will Not Turn On - Battery Flashes Then Goes Dead


have you only been charging it with the usb cable?
try plugging it into a ac adaptor, (make sure the button is in the off position at the bottom)
and it should hopefully restart, then turn it to the on when it's loaded, and leave it plugged in till it's completely charged

that might work
