I've had it for a little under a year now. Over the past few months it would start freezing if I forward through tracks. Now, it randomly turned off when I was using it, and it won't turn on. It doesn't respond when plugged into my computer. Any ideas?

I got my DR-05 a few days ago I learn something new everyday. You have to turn off your microphones to playback your recordings. Go to menu and scroll down to speaker and make sure you have it on. plus now see if your mic is off. scroll down to "other" click the fast forward. scroll down to "monitor mix", click the fast forward. Then you will see "Input" you got to turn that "off" to hear the speaker. The "input" is the sound that is coming into the microphones. You can\'t have it on when doing play back. There is a lot of little things about this, I am learning to. But once you get past these little things it\'s nice. I\'m working on different ways to record with the new quick button and limit controllers, haven\'t found much on it that\'s how I found you thought I would help while I am here.
Look further than the batteries. Take the whole thing apart. That's what I do, and I've fixed a lot of things. And keep looking on the internet. A few hours of looking can result in years of listening.
The same thing happened too me about six months ago after about a year and a half of using my zen with min. problems. It would freeze on 'Rebuilding..' and then there was an endless cycle of reset but eventually it would Rebuild completely and all my music and information was fine. It seemed to be playing fine but if it froze I had to start the reset game all over again. Then the real problems started. There are a few load screens before you make it to the Rebuild and it started to freeze on that instead after awhile. I was actually revealed when I froze on 'rebuilding..' and made it that far. If you can get it into recover mode and reboot it seems to have less problems freezing but that doesn't even work for me anymore. Then occasionally when it freezes it starts to vibrate terribly and make a horrible sound. Then it stops and flashes hard disk problems. This all happened slowly too me. It really wasn't worth the time I put into it trying to fix it. My advice is to work on getting a new MP3 player. If you can get it past the 'rebuilding..' your going to have to play the reset game every time it freeze and it will probably freeze more often.
Turn repeat off in the menu.
Setting iPod nano to Repeat Songs
You can set iPod nano to repeat a song over and over, or to repeat a sequence of
songs. iPod nano repeats songs within the list you choose to play.
To set iPod nano to repeat songs:
m Choose Settings from the iPod nano main menu.
â To repeat all songs in the list, set Repeat to All.
â To repeat one song over and over, set Repeat to One.
To turn repat off, go to Repeat off.
What you need to do is check the firmware. By doing so, set the device on "Disk Mode" and try to reinstall your firmware. Also make sure to back up all your files before doing so. If thats not the case, then it could be the battery life. Most of these reported cases all have to do with the battery performance. Freezing is the most common case of battery dysfunction. Make sure you get that checked out.
I had the same problem, it always freezes with such a dimly lit screen that I can't even tell if it's on or not. All I did when that happened was just hold the power button for like 10 seconds and then let it sit for a while to rest, and I'll turn it back on some other time. The ipod sounds like a good idea, I wanna just buy an ipod too and hope that it doesn't have as many problems...
sounds like you need a new hard drive, which has a little read-write disk in it that is getting finicky... just to get more use out of it lay it on side or other positions and hear if works ok...if so its diffently Hard drive.
you know the sandisks are 2 gigs no moving parts why doesnt somebody put 20 together making 40 gigs and replace the failing Ipods!!??? just pure electronics and no moving parts and much smaller...not like a hard drive. I thought of this over 30 years ago looking at the first plug in video game.
