Music files will not play
If ripped from a CD, It's possible that the copy protection in Windows Media Player was checked. This would limit the times a file can be played or transferred. Verify the audio quality is no lower than 128 Kbps when ripping.
Reset your MP3 player
Press the reset hole with a thin object such as a paper clip. If your player is freezing during a specific file, the file(s) could be corrupt and should be deleted from and re-transferred to your device.
Format your MP3 player
Upgrade or reinstall your firmware
If your device doesn't display "Charging" or "USB connected" while connected to the PC, the battery may be completely drained (or faulty) and it may take a few minutes before the PC detects the player and begins to charge it. If after ten minutes the player isn't detected, try using another USB port on the PC.
The battery may be exhausted and will require replacement.
I had this problem a few days ago. I connected it to a computer that was running Ubuntu 7.1 and just deleted every file on the thing. Unfortunately this will not leave you with a functioning mp3 played, but if someone would please upload the files off of their working one it would.
I had the same problem. Connecting it to my Linux server revealed that the filesystem was corrupted. After I ran a chkdsk /F /X and some other options (on a Windoze machine) and a reload of all files solved the problem. The Linux machine could still read all files so a backup was quickly made, the Windoze machine could not open the volume at all. After this, the stick worked again.
My guess is that when the files are copied to fast, the file system chokes at different times and that causes the corruption. In the future I use the Windoze machine to copy files to the player.
