The lock switch is on the back of the Sandisk card - it sometimes takes a magnifying glass, it's so hard to see

Why does my iPod keeps turning itself on when I lock it?


iPods have no traditional on/ff switch. They power up with the slightest touch, which makes turning the iPod on as simple as touching the menu. Turning the iPod off, however, can be more tricky. Waiting for automatic shut off wastes battery life, and surfing the menus yields no way to stop the device from running. Turning off the iPod Nano, though, is almost as simple as turning it on.

Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch at the top of your iPod Nano. It will be located on the top of your device on the left side. Make sure the device is unlocked. When the device is locked, an orange bar is visible. When it is unlocked, that bar is not visible. The iPod needs to be unlocked in order to power off. Locate the "play/pause" buttons. These are located at the bottom of the control wheel. Press at the "play/pause" section of the wheel and hold for a few seconds. Your iPod will power off. Do not touch the wheel again after powering off, as this will power the device back on. Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch again. Slide the bar to the locked position so that the orange bar is visible. This will prevent your iPod from powering on in your purse or pocket and wasting battery time.

Tip

Well I spent about two hours on the internet looking for a solution to why my...


I have a stunning new breakthrough on the frequently cited problem - "I cannot add any more songs to my Mp3 Player." Before we proceed, I am assuming that the reason you cannot add any more files has nothing to do with available memory space. Of course, if your Mp3 player is full, it will not accept any more songs. But, I am assuming that this is not your problem.
Apparently, if you add too many folders, especially via Playlist, via Windows Media Player, the Mp3 player's file system will become unstable - it can only handle a certain number of additional folders.

To resolve the issue:

1. Connect the player to the PC using the USB cable.
2. Open Windows Media Player.
3. Go to the Sync or Devices tab and delete all content from the player.
4. Go to the Tools menu and select Options.
5. Select the Devices tab, highlight the ILO or Siren player and click on Properties.
6. Uncheck the box "Create Folder Hierarchy on Device"

Now, when music is transferred, it will be placed in the root directory of the flash memory disregarding the folder structure and allowing all tracks to be seen.

This procedure was designed for Siren Mp3 players, but is applicable to many other Mp3 players. It is not a guaranteed fix for every Mp3 player and every error of this type, but it is certainly not a widely known or reported solution. i hope that this benefits many Mp3 player owners who are experiencing this issue.

Hello,

To see music in the music folder on your computer, change to MSC in USB mode in the player from:
Main Menu > Settings > USB mode
For firmware FW 1.01.11 and below on the Sansa Clip the selection for USB mode switching is not available: For adding this selection update the firmware of the player.

On the top is a switch. This switch goes left for lock. Make sure it is not locked. Once it is unlocked, you can touch any switch, button, or dial, and it "wakes up" the device. Now you should have the screen available.

This may not answer your question. Please provide more details if not.

As a note, in case you didn't discover it like I did, if you want to turn off the device to save power when you are not plugged in to USB and you aren't using it for a while...turn the device off by holding it in the "on" position for about 2 seconds. The device will shut down. Place the top switch back into lock position so it will be harder to accidentally turn it back on.

Good luck.

Something unrelated. If you don't have Windows Media Player 10 you may have problems getting music to sync to your device the way you want. Then again, you may have problems even with WMP10. See how it goes.

Pixxo mp3 player can not find disk on pc when conected to USB port.


El Passo 77.. TO play MUSIC... on a PD-A288 PIXXO MP3 player (this works on my 4GB unit):
1) turn on pixxo player (press and HOLD then BIG >| button for 4 seconds).
2) use the left-right button to highlight the MSC (MUSIC) icon
3. press the left-right button into the pixxo (avoid making it go left or right when you do this!!!)
4) Now use the left-right button to select a song.
5) now press the BIG >| button on top to begin playing the song that you selected.
6) you will see in the upper right corner numbers like 00:00 (secs into song) and a MM:SS total length.
7) To pause the song, press the BIG >| button. So >| acts as a toggle between PAUSE and PLAY.


HOPE THIS HELPS YOU!
