Cannot erase files

THe best thing to erase all files would be to connect the player to the system and right click on the drive and format the MP3 player from the My computer/ Computer. This will delete the contents of the player but not the softwares in it.
This will work.

Computer won't open DJ Ditty

Windows Media Player 11 not compatible with this player.

The device doesn't know if it is a MTP or MSC device - in one of these modes, it will not allow access to the music folder. unfortunately, there is no way to switch between these two modes in the menu settings. Go to Control Panel - Device Manager - find MTP Deivce and update driver.

Mp3

Try doing a search for "users manuals". There are a lot of sites that have users manuals for different products. Then, look for your Dell mp3 player brand.

Dell DJ Ditty

We may be in luck - I actually found an owner's manual for this one. Did you run the installation CD first? If you don't, Windows will load it's own, possibly wrong, drivers.

Make sure you didn't accidentally press the player's lock button:
The keys on the Dell DJ Ditty have been locked.
Unlock the keys by pressing in on and holding the
Volume/Scroll/Select dial until the lock icon disappears.

Reset method - Insert the end of a thin object, such as a straightened paper clip, into the reset button (near the headphone jack).

Also make sure your operating system is Windows XP - it won't work on anything before or after.

The Musicmatch service that this player was tied to was discontinued in October 2007, so your going to have problems even if we get it working again. Use Windows Media Player 10 instead (downgrade if you have the current version 11 installed).

Let me know how everything turns out.

DJ Ditty Battery?

Battery is not replaceable on this unit. Removing the outer casing will just cause components to fall out - you will end up destroying the player.

Dell DJ Ditty

This is a flash memory type player, all you should have to do is plug it in to your computer, select the drive that it is plugged into and it should show all the items on that memory, then select all, and right click to delete. From here you should be able to select different songs from your files and copy them over to that particular drive... See if that helps

Dell DJ Ditty

For this player, mtp device = good, wmp 10 =good, and xp =good - so your system definitely meets the requirements.

Dell did not list any other repair methods other than reset. You could try this, but it is a long shot: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.


I'm thinking that this one just has a circuit/power supply malfunction and will need to be replaced. The starting price for an Mp3 repair service is usually $280, and most will refuse b/c the mp3 manufacturers will not supply parts (Dell officially washed their hands of this product in 2006).
