    mine did this also, I charged it and i got to use it one time. after i
    added a test song it and unplugged it from computer while it was still
    on, it would not come back on.. somehow i got it to reset, i believe
    one of the tiny holes near the usb plug is the reset switch , try
    inserting a safety pin or paper clip and it may turn back on. thats what i did, and miracle ! it did. this may not be a premantnet fix however. I think i ll try turning it off before removing from computer next time.

    I got this MP3 for Christmas 2007.And it's worked fine; I mean during that period of time, I've had some minor troubleshooting; such as slowed down loading,etc;.It's been,fine other than those few problems.But an exact year from the day I recieved it today.I found it in my sisters room and it was saying change format of player to FAT.And so I hooked it up to charge it and it went from saying that message to my computer not even acknowledging that it's their and the charging screen won't show up.

I have a few helpful suggestions for all who have Accurian 42-198 problems. First of all check here for troubleshooting. These players are made by perception digital, an oem maker. I have had great success flashing the player with firmware from funtwist. They have the same player with slightly different firmware that doesn't seem as buggy as radio shack's. Link to funtwists download page is HERE. Model # you need to download is D-Chord 327

Coby MP822-4G touch screen doesn't work with our MAC!


Unfortunately itunes only works for apple ipods. If the Media Player shows up on the desktop and discover where the music files should be dropped then he should be able to go to his user folder and then the music folder and then the iTunes Music Library and then be able to drag and drop his required music onto the player. Sounds a bit of a fiddle but a final piece of advice try it with one folder or even one music file and then see if it works.

How to put music on the player, wont connect to computer some reason


first of all, it depends on what mp3 player it is. but there is an obvious first step to ANY of them.
1) do you have it connected to the computer via usb?

Now that we are past the obvious, Here are a couple various solutions based on type of mp3 player it could be:
IPOD:

1) Download Itunes from www.apple.com
2) Install Itunes onto your computer.
3) Once it is installed, connect your Ipod to the computer, and it should register in itunes. Here, you can click on it, and go to your music.
4) Open a separate window with your music folder, and drag files from that window, to the Music area of Itunes. This is easy.
5) when you have all the music you want on your Ipod in the music list, press "synch". It will all go onto your ipod. and

Voila! you have music!!

Sansa:
1) forget rhapsody. its ****, ignore it, ditch it, it will charge you, and you cant even make playlists with it!!!
2) Open Windows Media Player
3) Open your music folder in a separate window
4) Drag and drop songs you want into a windows media player playlist.
5) Synch playlist to sansa.

OR

1) Still forget about rhapsody, it sucks.
2) Go to My Computer
3) Click on Removable Storage device (you should already have it plugged in at this point. the removable storage is said mp3 player)
4) Open a separate window with your music in it.
5) Drag and drop music files from your music folder into the removable storage disk. you wont be able to make playlists this way, but its easier.

Now almost any other mp3 player would work with one of these methods, possibly only with deviance in which program you will use. I hope this was of use to you.

Mp3


I have written a Wiki Manual for a generic mp3 player - it will show you how to do everything except the video part:
http://www.scribd.com/doc/10838786/Generic-Mp3-Player-Wiki-Manual

Helpful hints:
The computer may or may not recognize the mp3 player as a "Flash Disk" - just plug the mp3 player into the computer with a USB cord, and Windows XP or Vista should recognize it automatically - it will take a minute or so for the computer to initialize it.

Charging generally takes 3 hours from empty.

You can use Windows Media Player to transfer music and video files in most player - I have written a tips and tricks article under my profile on how to use Windows Media Player.

You can use Windows Explorer to drag and drop files into the mp3 player. Each file type has a specific folder associated with it. Only put music in the music folder, noy, video in the video folder, etc.

Good luck!
