Siren player does not want to switch on. Computer recognizes the player,
I can play the music from the player thru my PC & LapTop. Sent Firmware
from Siren support. Firm ware will not install either from XP or Vista.
An email to Siren support suggested a hardware failure... then suggested I return the unit to place of sale. As my warranty was out I decided to open it up. Not suggesting as a viable solution - worked for me. Pull the battery cover and battery. Two teeny screws - a couple of pry-points next the to screw holes. Carefully lever the covers apart. Once apart I put the battery back in place. Unit fired right up. Kept working after re-assembly. So far so good. Good luck.

MP3 players can only play music files in mp3 file format.
You need to convert your CDs to mp3 music files onto yourcomputer or download them from the Internet and then copy them to your MP3player. You can do this using Windows Media player and Rip the CDs - Media Player willcreate a MP3 music file for each music track. Click on this link for instruction on converting music files to mp3 file format:-
Simply plug the MP3 Player into your computer, and when it is recognized, open my computer and access the MP3 Player. Inside it there will be 2 files one that says Audio and the other i think says data, open the Audio file and your songs will be there, then simply delete them, and problemo solved!
Hi, Plug the player into a computer. Go to My Computer and the player will appear as a Removeable Drive. Explore the player and copy the songs you want to keep and paste them to a folder on the computer. Now right click on the Removeable Drive and press Format. This will wipe the drive and it will be clean. Now transfer your files back onto the drive. Done :)
There was an installation Cd that was supposed to come with it. See if Windows Media Player recognizes it - if so, you will not need explorer. Unfortunately, Siren does not keep the software on their website, but you can call them: 254.224.0222
Here is a link to the user's manual: http://www.sirenplayer.com/support/Siren4GBManual.pdf
The songs that you are syncing may not be in the right format for this particular Mp3 player. Where did you get the songs? Q: What type of files can I play?
A: Mp3 and WMA files. DRM protected WMA files, such as those purchased from many online music services, must be copied to the player via Windows Media Player or the music management software compatible with your online music store.
The player does not support AAC file playback. (i.e: iTunes will not work)
Try windows Recovery Mode first: Try this: disconnect the player from the
computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to
the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume +
button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into
recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found
New Hardware Wizard.
