Re: i having the same problem
Yeah, they have this annoying habit of putting the hidden/crucial files in the same folder where you add music. If you try to delete songs in bulk, you can end up accidentally deleting crucial system files. It sounds like the computer is recognizing that something is plugged in - you may want to see if there is a firmware upgrade available for that player - the upgrade might re-add those missing files. Call Nextar also to see if they have any bright ideas - if they can't fix it, and you are still in warranty, then they can replace it for you. Best of luck!

If there is no power with what ever you do try to reset the player. If this wont work either it is possible that there are errrors within, as a last resort you can open to check the battery within.
But keep it connected to power overnight to crosscheck on battery charging before you open.when connected to computer does it indicates charging, if not carefuly save off all your files to a new folder and format the drive. Now repeat the procedure and check for battery failure.
Click Start, click Run, type regedit in the Open box, and then click OK.
Locate and then click the following entry in the registry:
Right-click NoDriveTypeAutoRun, and then click Modify.
In the Value data box, type 0xFF to disable all types of drives. Or, to selectively disable specific drives, use a different value as described in the "How to selectively disable specific Autorun features" section.
try this method. insert pen drive into usb open up my computer right click on the pen drive and format.
sometimes when you have the folder open that you want to format it wont want to do it, so by opening up my computer and only right clicking on it, you wont be accessing any of the data on there you will be just telling it to forrmat it.
that failing you might need to search for a pen drive utility that combats these issues specifically.

Plug unit in and open my computer, if it can read the unit it will show up as a removable disc, usually drive F:, copy and paste or click and drag music files into this drive to load your player.
Hope this helps.
If the drive is ticking, it suggests the actual HDD is dying. You can try the following to see if you can fix any disc errors through your PC, however if your PC does not recognise a drive has been attached you may be unable to do anything other than have it repaired elsewhere.
If you have problems with the file system on your Gmini you can try to fix it using the DOS utility, check disk (chkdsk).
Do the following;
? Make sure external AC adapter is powering the Gmini.
? Quit all running applications.
? Properly connect the Gmini to your computer
? Wait patiently (up to 5 minutes) for Windows XP to show the local drive as mounted.
? Open a DOS window. Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.
? At the prompt, type chkdsk e: /f. Use e: or f: or whatever drive letter is representing your Gmini. The /f argument tells the program to automatically fix errors.
? Be patient, this may take a while.
? When it is finished, exit the DOS Window and properly disconnect the Gmini from your computer.
Try using the device now and see if makes any difference. This method should help to fix any disc errors that have occurred within the FAT and help your PC recognise it again. If you have more problems, try formatting it using a DOS prompt. You MUST make sure NOTHING is trying to access the disc before you can format it - this includes windows explorer.
Do you have the software from the CD installed on the computer?
Have you tried shutting it off while connected for a few seconds and turning it on again?
Have you tried restoring it and updating the software on it?
After you install the update on the PC, Connect iPod shuffle to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
If you?re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn?t open
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
Go to Control panel>Performance and maintenance> System> Hardware> Device manager> Universal Serial Bus Controller, click on the + sign to see the list of installed devices. If your player is connected, it should be listed there with a yellow flag (the yellow flag indicates that although the connection is there, it is not working properly). Right click on it>Properties>Troubleshoot. See if the troubleshooter can help. If not, click on Action on the top bar and then Uninstall. Leave your shuffle on and connected and reboot. XP should now recognize and install it.
Another possible solution.
Click on Start, click on Run and type the following in the opening textbox:
and press the Enter key
A window will open (black and white) and will display the following:
C:\Documents and Settings\Your Name\
Type the following at the end of the above line after the \
Net start stisvc
And press the Enter key
You will get a message that service is already started (if so this does not solve the problem) or that it is starting (if so this may solve the problem). Then try connecting your camera after you close this window. To close this window, type EXIT at the end of the displayed line and press the Enter key.
Yet another possible solution:
Open Tweak UI if you have it. Get it if you don't. In Tweak UI, open the My Computer tab/line and click on Drives. A list of all possible drive names will appear with the ones you want to show in My Computer checked. If your removable storage/generic volume/camera drive as shown in Device Manager (mine was F:) is not
checked, check it. The drive will appear in My Computer.
If your drive is already checked, it's something else.
Tweak UI can be downloaded from the following site:
