When I turn my mp3 player on, the start up menu flashes continuously and will not search for files, allow me to get to the main menu or even turn off unless I take the battery out. I just got this player as a gift 2 months ago and the store won't take it back because I don't have a receipt? What should I do?

Windows has a 'Search' facility that allows you to find a file whose name include part of the file name(s):
- In Windows XP, the ''Search" facility is available via the (Player) drive context menu (Right Mouse Click) or via 'Start' menu -> Search.
- In Vista or Windows 7, 'Open Windows Explorer' -> enter part of the file(s) to be found in the Top Right Hand 'Search ' box which will immediately start a search on ALL DRIVES under 'Computer'
- If you type .mp3 , it will locate ALL files that contains .mp3 suffix.
ps. Next time you download the a file (which by default WILL NOT BE ON YOUR PLAYER unless you change the 'options' default drive/folder of course), take note to which drive/folder you are downloading it.
Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. Then Connect your MP3 player to the computer. Some MP3 players connect directly to a USB port, while others connect to a USB port by way of a specific USB connector that comes with the MP3 player. Open the folder on the computer that contains the music files you want to transfer. This is usually the "My Music" folder; available from the "Start" menu, but it can be any folder where you save your music files. Scroll down to the song you want to transfer to the MP3 player. Right-click on the title. When the options are displayed, click on "Send To." Scroll down the "Send To" options and select your MP3 player. This can be listed as your MP3 player's name or as "Removable Drive." Click on this selection. Continue this process until you have transferred all songs that you want to your MP3 player.

i had my GFs mp3 player and it was flashing green light, not solid, but still was frozen and couldnt even bring it up on my computer after plugging in the USB cable. but i just tapped the reset button on top right side, and it stopped flashing and turned off. i turned it back on and started to play normally. not sure if it will be the same since the light situation is different, but the reset button worked for me. good luck
This happens when you load a file that has a filename that is extremely long. If you use UMS firmware, you can just connect to the USB cable again, find the long filename and shorten it (use the [F2] key to reduce the name length, but keep the extension to .mp3.)
