Yes, this can be repair if you can identify which song corrupting your mp3 player. All you have to do is to plug your mp3 player in a computer and then transfer all the songs there. After, delete all the song in your mp3 player. Then go back to computer where you sve the song and play each song so that you can see which one is corrupted. Unplayable song mean that is the corrupted files that cause problem in your mp3. Check all the rest and then transfer all the playable song. This is what I did before and it surely solve your problem.

Regards

Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. You can try to reset the player and see if it will works if not then you need to bring the system to a service center or local tech to check that part of the mp3 that is causing the problem. Regarding the cost it will depends on the problem of the mp3. Try resetting the mp3 first and hopefully it will work

Recovery Mode:

Tturn off the player, move the hold button to the right, and press the on and rec button, then conecting to the computer. When folder opens create a NEW FOLDER (not a text document) called "Sansa.fmt". then disconec the usb and it was fixed.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya

    Hi,

    Just try this first:

    1) Turn on the "hold" function (move slider on top of the player so orange is showing).
    2) Hold down the "Rec" button on the left side of the player.
    3) Power the player on.


    The
    player will enter recovery mode and ask you to connect it to your PC
    via the USB cable. Do this. The player will then display "Enter USB2.0
    MSD mode." Disconnect the player, let it reboot, and reconnect the
    player.

    Your player may now be OK at this point, or it may show up in Windows Explorer as a removable disk. Open it create a NEW FOLDER called "Sansa.fmt". then disconnect the usb and it was fixed.

    If still wont work you might have a bad player.

Is it possible to change the order of the tracks?


When listening to music, you can hit 'M' to access the menu. Whilst in the menu, go down to Repeat. The sub-folder has several different options, among them being Random All on the second page. Though the order it plays songs in does not often differ (i.e. When you click random, it will always play Track 4, then 9, then 2, and so on and will do this again the next time you go into your music selection), it can be useful for when you have prior sub-folders to trade off between.

If you have already tried this, you can also plug your player into your desktop computer and move the songs off of the player via the folders available there. When you re-upload files, they tend to be in alphabetical order, so you can also rename them (i.e. from "Charlie on the M.T.A." to "01 Charlie on the M.T.A." and so on and so forth) to get them in a playlist-style format. If you have more than thirty files in a folder on the device, things tend to become out-of-sequence anyway, so that can add a pleasingly random element to your music.

Enjoy <3

I have a coby mp-c582 that I bought used for my grandson. I like it fine but am not completely sure of what each button does. The o and x button on the side for instance. What is that one for. I thought it...


You are confused because the buttons have several purposes. The +/- are volume up and down and Next/Previous. If you press and hold the button, you control the volume. Quickly press and release for Next or Previous. The button below them is Pause/Play and Power (again press and hold to power on or off). The switches on the left side are Hold (no buttons work) and Random (play loaded songs in a randomized order)

For the hold feature, move the switch to the padlock. Unlock by sliding the other way. The Random switch has a more obvious label - Random or Normal.

The user's manual for the MP-C582 is available here: http://www.cobyusa.com/files/manuals/MPC582_MN.pdf . If the direct link doesn't work, try the support site: http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=doc and search for the model (MP3 & Portable, MP3&MP4 Players, MPC582.)

I hope this helps.

Put in disk in 360. Play Playonline viewer, but screen goes black, and says cannot read disk, need to clean or restart. I did this several times and same result.


I had this problem recently. What happened was you closed the game without logging out of Playonline. The long shut down I call it. This corrupts the FFXI data on your HDD. And since FFXI does not appear in the memory you have to format your HDD and redownload. I can guarantee if you put the disc in your xbox with no HDD that it will read or even place it in an xbox with a HDD that has never had FFXI.

Forgot how to use my Insignia MP3 player.


Power up:

If the player is laying flat with the screen facing left, you will see a large circle button and two buttons above the circle. The button on left above the circle is the power button.

To start playing music:
Press the button in the middle of the large circle with a small triangle facing the right (the play button)

To stop music:
Pressing the same button mentioned above will pause the music while pressing the power button I first mentioned will turn off the unit completely and stop the music as well.

Matsui MAT 140 MR mp3 player


If your Matsui is working suggest you leave well alone -- I've been looking for utilities (new firmware, reflash utility and firmware extractor) and it's all very confusing.

Apart from the ghastly menu system the only problem I've had with mine £8 ($16 used from a flea market) is that Win XP's data write-behind feature means that XP merrily suggests that file transfers are complete when the player is still digesting the files. If you interrupt this by mistake XP stops responding or complains that data has been lost.

Hardisk problem...


Try holding down the play/pause button whilst pushing a paperclip into the reset hole. you should hopefully then get the choice of several options to try. If that doesn't work you could also try looking on creative american website for instructions for other players - some of these work for different models even when not specified. Good luck!
