20 Most Recent Panasonic SV-MP020 MP3 Player Questions & Answers

There is probably a reset switch somewhere that you will have to find, It will be tiny, Just big enough to put a needle in there. Press that and it should reset without losing any data. If it does the same "wait" thing again then remove any new songs you put on and put them back on one by one to see which one is corrupting the software and causeung the problem. Its a good idea to leave 25% free space on any storage device and especially MP3 players etc.

Make sure the usb jack is all the way in the player. Mine had a couple of mm of metal showing and felt like it was in, the display lit up, said 'wait' and then 'goodbye' :-(. Only later did I realise the jack still had to be pushed fully in, and then *bingo*, a working mp3 player

Try resetting the mp3 player. You can do this by sliding the hold button over and then turning it on. While on it should say hold. Then you push mode (-)(+)(-)(+)Mode(+)Mode(+)
Granted, that will deleted all the songs you have on there so make sure you have them backed up somewhere you can place them back on there.

I hope this helps.

Take the battery out :)

Don't worry about it, simply go plug in your mp3 player to the computer and sign in to Rhapsody. Go to your play list and the songs should be there. Unplug your MP3 player and it should work. You have to do this because the warrant or license on your songs is up and you have to plug in your mp3 player to renew that license to keep listening to it. Hope this helps! It worked for me!

go to www.panasonic.com. look for the tab near the top that says downloads or support. enter your model number in the search box. download the firmware. follow the instructions that come with it.

Under WinXP Pro the MP020 shows up as 'Panasonic Audio Player' with a folder 'Fixed Storage'. Try to do File>New Folder on the 'FIxed Storage' and no can do.
Build a new folder under you C: drive.
Go back and clip on 'Fixed Storage'. I see a file WMPinfo.xml.
Go back to the folder you just built under C: and click/drag to the right.
The new folder should be under the 'Fixed Storage' folder.
The new folder under 'Fixed Storage' has a bot more functionality associated.
I'm not crazy about having to do it this way but it works.
Now someone tell me how to speed up the transfer process

should have at least windows 2000 sp4 or xp sp1 as operating system. plug into usb port on computer while computer is turned on. computer should recognize and install it as mass storage usb device and assign it a drive letter. sometimes xp will recognize it as a panasonic mtp device. this doesn't matter, you can still drag and drop files on it through windows explorer file manager.
