    Reset it multiple times with lock on, off, plugged in to the computer, and not, and it always hangs after it animates the Transcend logo. I cannot evoke any other response out of it.

    I recently downloaded a virus or bug onto my LYRIC Mp3 player I removed the virus by deleting every file , however I thought that this would just delete the content nto the entire file itself , how do I restore these files if they can be restored at all ?

I had the same problem.
Do the following and the player will SURELY work.

Download this .zip file:

Extract the file and read the firmware update manual.

Next run the TS840_V1_61.exe file and follow the instructions.
When it tells you to insert the player, press the decrease volume button while inserting it into the computer.

After some time, the firmware update will be complete. Now add the files you want to play.

This also works for people who do not have specific sections of the player working. (i.e.) players in which only the photo and video part does not work, etc.

CAUTION : If you follow these steps, your MP3 player will be restored to their original quality. This is a foolproof, sureshot method of restoring the player. But all your files will be deleted. So take a backup and then proceed.

Thank you.

Good day my sony walkman NW E003 mp3 player cannot be read by the computer. The computer doesn't even say "USB device not recognized" anymore. I've tried all that I could , sir. Please help me. Thank...


Try and reset the player by inserting a pointed object inside the small hole, press and hold for 5-10 seconds to let the player reset. If this doesn't work then connect the player with the computer and let it charge for a while. Now go to control panel-> administrative tools-> computer management/system management-> storage, check if you are able to see the mp3 player here. If it is visible then try a reset and try again. If not then reset the player while it is connected with the system. This will resolve your issue.

Hope this helps...

My computer wont respond to my zen mp3 player

hello! I had this problem, as you see, but i found solution. Go to and send an email about your problem. Then they will respond your email, and they explain what you have to do.
If you are too lazy to send an email, you can also FORMAT everything, in the reset menu. Then the problem is also solved, but you don't have songs or videos on it

if your player stopped responding like downloading the music from your computer to your player or after your player is not working just reset by using paper clip to the hole and press down until your player is off then press on it should work properly sometimes it does freeze or crashed at some point.
