Try resetting the unit. press down on the power/menu button for 15 seconds, and when the pinwheel turns off, wait ten seconds, the turn it on with the HOLD icon in place, and push and hold the record button while it turns on. this will usually bring you to the recovry mode. then you must plug your sandisk onto you rcomputer, and wait for it to tell you when to unplug it. I f this does not work, go to the store that you got it from, and tell them. They will usually happily replace it, but if they don't, then call sandisk, press four for MP3 SUPPORT, and talk to them about it.

Before you reset to factory settings Know that any data apps files contacts music etc you loaded onto your player will be deletted for good. To reset is basicaly the same as with most phones. going into your main menu look for the spanner and screwdriver symbol > settings > scroll down to additional settings to the very end here you should find FACTORY RESTORE. Again by doing so you will lose all data you have loaded. should you still have problems goto samsung/galaxyplayer/5

How do i restore a inspiron b130 to factory settings


You may follow the below steps to perform a full factory restore:

Use an external hard drive to back up any important files on the computer as all of the data on the computer's hard drive will be erased during the restore process. Connect the hard drive to the computer via the USB cable and transfer any valuable photos, music, programs or documents into the hard drive's folder. Once all the files are copied into the folder, right-click on the hard drive's folder icon and choose "Eject."
  • Remove any other unnecessary hardware device cables connected to the computer as they maybe damaged when the computer is restored. Disconnect any scanners, USB drives, MP3 players, smart phones and the external hard drive.
  • Close any programs running on the computer and turn off the computer. Turn the power back on and hold down the "F8" key when the Dell logo appears on the screen to open the "Advanced Boot Options" screen. Make sure to complete this step before Windows loads.
  • Click on the "Dell Factory Image Recovery and DataSafe options" icon. Select the language settings for the computer and click "Next." Check the box for "Yes, reformat hard drive and restore system software to factory condition" and click on the "Next" button to begin the restore process. The computer will then erase the hard drive and restore the computer to the original factory condition. Press "Finish" to restart the computer with the factory settings restored.

    How do you restore your carbon back to factory settings? i want to completely delete everything but i don't have the software...i havent for quite awhile. can you restore it just using the device itself?...

    You cannot restore the player without a computer but by formatting your drive and re-loading the Rio Carbon Firmware, you can reset it to factory settings.
    The Developers cut firmware (latest (unofficial) firmware) is still available here:

    Just not in the manual! I wish to clear all existing tracks and load it up afresh.

    If you follow the instructions on page 19 of the manual, Connecting to PC and transferring files, you'll see in step 5 that
    5. You can copy any files including MP3, JPG, and transcoded video files encoded by JetAudio VX to and from "iAUDIO" Drive.
    I recommend you try to just remove all the mp3 files in your folder at once, by control clicking or shift clicking to select multiples that you want removed. Unless of course there are simply too many.
    In that case, have you tried restoring the player to factory settings, as described on page 44 of the manual? (pictures not shown here)
    5.1. Resetting the Player to Factory Default Settings
    iAUDIO F2's settings can be deleted and re-initialized to Factory default settings.
    1. After the player is turned on, select the Music mode.
    2. If a music file plays, pause at the playback screen and do as shown below.
    3.When, initialized, the Language setting screen will appear when the player is turned
    - If the player operates improperly, press the "RESET" button at the bottom of the player and then restart the player. If malfunction continues, please initialize the player to Factory Default setting.
    See this link for an online manual.
    That's my recommendation. I'm going by the manual, though, as I don't own one of those players...I hope that's the information you were seeking.

    I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
    If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

    Can the factory loaded music and pictures be?

    You can format the player which will remove everything off of the player including your stuff, so back it up. You can do this by going into the players settings menu and select format. When it ask you if you are sure, select yes and let it format. After that, the device will be fresh to go with no factory loaded stuff on it.

    some of the files you deleted are probably the files that contain the installation settings, if thats the case you'll have to restore back to factory settings or download new settings online.
