when buying it, you should have purchased a usb cable with it, see if u can connect it to your wondows computer, if you hae got win2000 and later installed, it should recognize it likr a thumb-drive/external harddisk, you'll be able to copy the mp3's from your harddisk to it then. If you have win98 installed and use an older machine that supports only the usb 1.1 standard, do install the win98 drivers from the (mini?)CD you got when you bought it. If you cannot find it,then come again -there's no support for this on the manufacturers homepage!
Next to the on/off is a hole. There is a similar hole in the bottom edge. With the help of a friend push the blunt ends of two needles in both holes at the same time; far enouugh to depress the spring clips. While the springs are depressewd, slide the front cover sideways toward the rounded edge then lift off. the back cover will now slide off easily.
The most common cause is a flat battery. There is a trick to charging
the battery in these small mp3 players. It wont charge if it is turned
on, and it won't charges if it's in sleep mode (zzzz). Here what to do... 1. plug the payer into your USB port. or wall charger 2. switch thje player on 3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting
"System" from the menu 4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.
Try to force recognition: 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
