Sony (chinese) MP4 player with hour glass frozen screen

I have a Sony (IGB) 2in LCD MP4 player . The screen is frozen with an hourglass display and when I connect it to the pc, the pc recognizes it but cannot install drivers for it. It comes as other devices in the device manager . How can I fix this problem?

    I tried resetting . But does not help. I tried holding the buttons together . Looks like this is a common problem as I have read this in lot of forums.

    There is no model number since it is a chinese make. It is a 1 GB 2" LCD with sd card slot. tried reinstalling the drivers but I get a message that the drivers for the particular device is not found. Previously my computer recognized it without any drivers as a USB removable disk.

Try resetting the player. There should either be a button for that (possibly on the back) or holding certain buttons together may prompt it. Check your player's user guide as it will certainly say how to restart it. If you can't find out how to restart it, try disconnecting the battery.

    Could you give me the model number so I can further assist you? Did you try reinstalling the drivers (downloading the newest ones from Sony)? Did the computer previously recognize it and not have any driver problems with it when you connected it?

Frozen hourglass symbol on mp4 screen

If you are using Mac, you must use USB to connect to connect to itunes. If you are using Windows you MUST use Firewire. I don't know why this is but each system won't recognize the other's connection medium. Make sure you are using the correct cable. If my wire connection doesn't work then it is reversed. Try it the other way around. The only other thing I could think of is that you are trying to upload an MP4 that the system doesn't recognize. try a format converter if this is the problem, they can either be demoed or bought four 20 bucks or so.

Hourglass frozen on screen!!

Try and plug it in your computer once again and see if the hour glass budges. Then safely remove it by clicking the "Safely Remove Device" Icon on your PC tray (where the clock is on a PC)...

If not, theres probably a software reset hole at the back or sides of your mp4 player, try pushing it with a toothpick or similar pointed thing.

If all else fails, have it replaced...
