Nextar mp3 will not stop freezing up

I have a nextar mp3 512MB.

It use to work perfectly fine and then one day it started acting silly. Sometimes when I turn it on, it doesnt want to and an hour glass will show up, then maybe turn off. Sometimes it will got to the changing modes area but then it will freeze. If I DO get to get to my songs, it lasts about a mintue before it freezes, goes back to the hourglass, or completely shuts off. I wont do anything when I plug it into the computer anymore, and now sometimes it wont even turn on. I dont know what to do. :(

I had the same problem and the Nextar support line couldn't fix it. They said send it back. To much hassle so I kept pushing buttons and finally figured it out. The player was not in the play music mode, but the record mode somehow. Screen read DVR, not MP3. Try pushing and holding the mode button in, not in the direction of the arrows, but straight into the housing. Hold if for a while and then you will enter the world of settings, voice recordings, music playing and much more. Good luck and I hope this helps!

SOURCE: can't load songs on nextar mp3 1 GB ma933a- 1p

There are several possibilities:
1) The songs you are trying to load to the Mp3 player are not compatible with the Nextar - a good test for this would be to connect your Nextar to the PC, open Windows Media Player, and click the Library tab, then the Sync tab - if a little blue "i" appears next to the song, it will not work with your Nextar. In fact, any song that is not in mp3 format or unprotected WMA (very few WMA's are unprotected unless you Ripped them directly from CD) will not play in the Nextar.
2) You have the Hold switch engaged - unlock it
3) The PC's you are trying to connect it to are running Windows Vista - not compatible with Nextar

I cant install nextar mp3 to the computor

Did you go into device manager and uninstall the mp3 player off of your compputer and the reinstall it? If not try that go into control panel then go to hardware then go to the button that says view installed hardware the go to uninstall device! Then reinsert the mp3 player back into your computer and try again. Also if you are not already try upgrading to the latest version of windows media player most mp3 players will malfunction if you do not have at least windows(R) media player 10 although 11 is the newest version available.
