Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

My ipod nano doesn't appear on the itunes screen mhen i connect it to my computer, how can i sincronize it?


Well it sounds like a problem with the cable prehaps...
what you should do first is go on a freinds computer and see if it will connect on theres .
if it does that then it means that your computer is not reqonizing your ipod.... that may be a usb problem

but before u lose hope make sure u test with a diffrent cord and test on another computer..

My zen's screen wont turn on


i'm assuming you pushed the reset button at the bottom already. does it seem like it is booting (does the hard drive spin, the head move?) if nothings moves or spins i'm assuming you have a defective logic board. there is a creative zen repair guide that shows you how to do that, the part is on ebay.

My thing that hooks up from the mp3 to the computer wont work or somthing every time i plug it in it doesnt charge and the computer doesnt aknowledge it also i cant open up the phillips mp3 on my computer


If it's a standard cable, it's a USB to mini USB cable. Have you tried a different cable with similar ends? Also, have you tried a different USB port on your computer?

Boot error on mp3 player model 4008a


There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

"Boot Error, Sutting Down"


You may have let a magnet get near the mp3 player. Go to "My Computer" Then double click on the Mp3 player. You will see "Internal Storage" Icon. Right click it and click format. You will lose all data on the device. Also upgrading to 3.003 does not fix the Boot error problem.
