I just want to tell the person who posted the solution to this problem. "thank you, thank you,thank you". Your solution worked for me, too. I was ready to throw the MP3 player away. It's working fine now.

You can reset it with a paperclip. The reset button is on the bottom. When immediately after you reset, hold the play button and you will get the recovery screen. From there you can reformat(erase everything and start over). That should work. If not, you probably have a bad hard drive.

My Dell DJ Ditty keeps saying its hooking up to my computer on itself when it is not hooked up to my computer.

Blow out the connector port real good. Sometimes dust or foriegn matter gets in there and shorts the connection making it think it is synching.

Dell DJ Ditty - manual – How to Troubleshoot the Dell DJ Ditty – from Dell - Firmware for Ditty

Did you run the installation CD first? If you don't, Windows will load its 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 you’re going to have problems even if we get it working again.

The DJ Ditty does recognize DRM-encryption for WMA files – make sure the license is up to date, or convert the file to mp3 format if you are experiencing licensing issues.

If you are experiencing frequent freezing, or a file system/corruption error, or getting the “Warning! Reformat with Firmware Updater!” message, there are two ways to format the DJ Ditty:

Format using Windows Media Player:
Run Microsoft Windows Media Player.
Connect the DJ Ditty to the computer.
Click the Sync button on the top of the menu.
Click the "Format storage media" button on the right-hand side of the screen.
Disconnect the DJ Ditty and power it back on.

Reload or upgrade the Firmware:
Connect the DJ Ditty to the computer.
Download and install the latest firmware from
Run the firmware upgrade program with the "Format Data Area" checked.
Disconnect the DJ Ditty and power it back on.
