I believe the problem lies in how quickly the battery life gets eaten by some types of music files. My MP4 player was an expensive Samsung one and the battery did not charge according to the instructions of the manual. It was brand new (a week old) and adequately charged when I first used it, then just died very suddenly without good cause or reason.
I discovered that it suddenly came back to life again a few days later once it had not been touched in any way. I then charged it as normal and everything fine and began to operate normally for several months.
Yesterday, I encountered the same problem again after six months. It just stopped playing and cannot charge it. I have checked for issues via device manager and nothing displays any technical problems or need an upgrade of driver : In fact, it does not recognise that the device is even plugged into the PC that most people have reported on here.
I have downloaded Java updates but this makes no difference at all. No amount of looking for driver updates/PC updates will resolve the problem (my PC fine) so have come to the conclusion that the battery in all MP4 players temperamentaland take time to cool down of their own accord after a few days to a week max.
I know it might sound crazy, yet this is what solved my initial problem that appears to be a recurrent one over time. If you haven't left in your PC to charge for more than 24 hours, spilt anything onto it or thrown it against a wall, then the MP4 is fine, it just needs a long time to be left alone for some days - Annoying as this is! - If the issue is still the same after a week without it, then contact the manufacturer to get it looked at or a replacement.

I have a craig mp4 player model CMP616F and i just bought it, charged it, loaded songs and used it 1 time. now when i turn it on a hour glass comes on the screen and blinks and cant do anything else

i had the same problem with mine searched online and found that someone said to let the battery run completely dead, (turn it on and leave it on til the screen stops blinking) that resets it, and then you charge it for 4 (i think) hours. Worked for mine and I hope it works for you too

My craig mp4 player shows an hour glass and will not work.

Turn on the MP4 player and let the battery go all the way dead. Plug it back into a computer and mine reset.

Hour glass

I have had 3 try this turn off your mp4 player and recharge it for 6 or maor hours so it fully charged. Then with it switched off get at good hair dryer and heat for one minute untill its very hot but dont melt it. then switch it on have your computor ready to back up your MP4 player and also remove MEMORY HACK search the net its simple to do and takes the stress for the small cpu witch is why it froze DO NOT SWITCH OFF the player use only centre button to do this and it will come on again. hope this helps

How can i fix my mp4 player?

I have a very similar Mp4 with an hour glass thingy as well and I've had to take mine back to the dealer 3 times now! if its brand new you should have sufficient warranty and be granted a new one. :)
