    My mp3 is also stuck on the writing screen. It's wierd because I can put songs on it but when I'm done transfering it gets stuck on writing. I usually wait for the batery to die but that takes about 3 to 4 hours and well is there an easier way to fix this problem or should I just do what I usually do?

All I did was hold down the power button for about 60 seconds and then it restarted. Plays music and everything fine now.

So mine broke at work ... took about 10 minutes to pop the back off without a screw driver ... then you unhook the battery. afterwards u can still use it as a USB thumbdrive or you can try hooking up the positive and negative wires to a 9volt battery with some electric tape ... at least it's not a total loss if u can still use it as a portable usb thumbdrive. alright well, BACK TO WORK! be sure not to burn urself on the battery. don't try to pop the metal things off, that's how i burned my finger. smells like burned plastic now.

On the screen, it reads WRITING with 2 arrows above it.

I had a similar problem with mine, but this may not apply to you. I used my kix on my new macbook, and it worked fine. But when I tried to use it on my family's xp computer afterwards it said that it was writing and media player wouldn't pick it up but the computer itself did. My guess is the problem comes from switching systems between windows and apple. I also never bothered with disconnecting it "properly", which I recommend since it may have also caused the problem. But tell me if this helps.

Hold the power off button continuously for 15 seconds. This should force a shutdown and reboot.

Rio Carbon stuck "WRITING"

The writing message may appear for a good forty minutes after completing the firmware upgrade - make sure your player is fully charged and just let it sit for an hour on that writing status - it will stop eventually.
