    iI turn it on and it says making playlist and nothing happens,i waited but it didn't do anything.I turn it off and back on but it automatically goes to making playlist.

  • Brecshkowsky May 25, 2008

    Exactly what it says there, I can put music on it, or take it off, but as soon as I unplug it from the computer it freezes on the Making playlist screen. What do I do? I didn't try anything so I wouldn't break something.

    My MP3 insignia is stuck on, will not play, its just stuck with the light on displaying a full screen like its on pause. I connected it to my computer, but nothing changed. the light is still on and nothing popped up on my PC. I have not opened it to take out the battery, I would rather not do that until I have tried everything else.

When you copy music files from your PC to the Kix and the transfer is complete, do not immediately unplug the Kix from your USB. Instead, leave the Kix plugged in the USB on your puter for at least 10-15 minutes. The Kix will display "OK to disconnect," but just leave it plugged in for a good amount of time AFTER you copy all the files you want. I have found leaving the Kix plugged in for several minutes allows the play list to be created and not get stuck.

Just called Insignia at 800.699.9218 and they had a fix. You will lose all data on the player when you do this, so transfer what you need off of the player first.

Basically, you just Format the player. Put the player in your computer, find the icon for it, right-click, select Format. Do a full (not quick) Format. Pull it out, see it it gets past the frozen screen.

This seems to have worked for me; have only tested briefly but seems OK.

On my Gogear Raga 2GB I can't make a playlist. (SA2RGA02). With WMP I can synchronise the music, but there's no playlist on the device. All the music is stored in different folders on the Raga and not in...

Sync all the songs you want onto the raga via 'songbird'.
Stay connected, then go to windows explorer, identify your device. Then in 'Music', make folders for your playlists. Manually transfer (drop and drag) your songs to the required folder/playlist.
When using the raga use the 'folder' option. Works as playlists.

Need Creative Zen user manual. No longer on the website. I really just need to know how to create playlists if you can help me with that.

  • Creating playlists for Creative Zen MP3 player
  1. Step 1 Turn your Creative Zen MP3 Player on and add music to its hard drive if you haven't already. Without music on your player, you won’t be able to select tracks for a playlist.
  2. Step 2 Select "Music Library" from the Main Menu. The Main Menu should appear as the first menu when you turn your device on.
  3. Step 3 Select "Now Playing" from the options available, then press the Options button.
  4. Step 4 Select "Save as Playlist" from the list of options. This will save the tracks you have listed currently as a playlist that can be reloaded later.
  5. Step 5 To play a playlist back, go to the Main Menu, select the playlist and click

Unable to play playlists on my Hitachi MP3

You can try dragging the playlist into the folder that you open up when you connect the player and then you want to drag and drop music. Then drag the folder and drop into the music folder which means you are copying from the player to another folder on the player. This manages to solve the problem of the player re-arranging files alphabetically and may help your playlist issues.

Philips GoGear SA3245 - Playlists Not Showing Up on Player

Have solved this problem on GoGear syncing with WMP 11 by going to options on the device itself, then go to the "settings" option, scroll down to "PC Connection Preferences", from here you will select the check box saying "MTP" then back out of options and connect your device and go back to your WMP 11 and drag your playlists to the syncing area and resync your device. You should then be able to see your playlists under the playlist option in music along with the "playlist on the go" playlist.

Hope this will help!

Ok, What we need to do is do a simple test. First hold the power button for 15-20 seconds, then hold the centre enter button for 15-20 seconds. Keep doing this and it should reset!
