How do you reset your MP3 player if it is corrupted?
K, to erase internal memory do this:
1-Turn off device.
2-Hold power to start but keep it held + the menu button, hold those UNTIL the menu comes up.
3-let go of the switch and button and scroll to 'erase internal memory.

YES! Hold the POWER switch to the right while holding the MENU button. SERIOUSLY, I was having it be stuck on Profiling Media Files for a long time and THIS WORKED. It then comes up with ERASE INTERNAL MEDIA? Select YES.

Mine froze and some how holding the slider for the power to the right for longer than usual got it to come back on. this didnt work before but its easier than the annoying battery option. if this doesnt work then i would advise the battery option as the support page didnt help me at all. my player does this and i think its a software issue with the player. i did a lot of research and there doesnt seem to be any other reset options than the ones already posted.

Only way I've found to reset it when it freezes is to remove the back cover and unplug the battery and then pluc it back in again look for the black circle on the back it's just a sticker covering the screw. Just a simple eyeglass repair kit is all you really need hard part is connecting the battery again

To reset the unit to the factory defaults or erase all files on the player do the following;
1. Press the MENU button
2. In the main menu select "Settings" and then press the PLAY/PAUSE button
3. Select "System" from the menu and then press PLAY/PAUSE.
4. Change any of the three settings listed depending on what you want to do. You can either erase all files from internal memory, erase all files from external memory or reset the unit completely back to factory defaults.
You can also try doing a soft reset on the unit by sliding the Power switch to the right and holding it for 10 seconds.
