Hi,
This error is generally the result of a corrupt or missing Custsat.dll file, usually located in the C:Program FilesWindows Media Player folder.To workaround this problem:
1. Remove the current Windows Media Player 10 install.
2. Download and install

Windows Media Player 11 for Windows Vista

or

I tend to use VLC Player, as it plays everything I throw at it..

Hope this helps

My MP3 Player is saying system disk err

use your computer to remove the files, and put 'em back on with windows media player.with another program open, you should have windows media player open and use it to put 'em on.Limewire and internet syncing sites usually stink.

My Windows Media Player 10 or 11 Everytime I open it up it causes an error that says Windows Media Player has encountered a problem and needs to close

delete the media player software and reload it as this 1 which you have loaded must not be loaded perfectly.also try to load mediaplayer --8 or 9 instead of 10 ,11 as your operating system must not be supporting this.

30 gb zune can't get into program

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.

Can't copy files to and from Windows Media Player

If the music service subscription that you originally used to transfer these files has expired, then you will get this error message.

Also, you have to fully resynchronize to the original computer yo connected the player to every 30 days.

Windows media player won't allow me to sync files to my My Musix mp3 player....

This player doesn't play well with WMP-11. Try reformatting inside Windows Media Player, but this may not work. Other methods you can try:
MyMusix's PD-6030:
If you have a Windows-based computer,
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.

If that fails,
Check the battery polarity. (+ and - must be in correct psoition)
Set the hold button to the unlock position.
Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes ,format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format

If that fails,
go to www.mymusix.com to see if the latest software update will correct the problem
