For Chistmas I got an eMatic EM102VIDB MP3 player. When I plugged it in to my computer, it crashed, and then refused to activate, even if I used the reset button.
The solution, not guaranteed to work, is to plug it into another computer. With any luck, it will re-activate. Do not push any buttons for several minutes. It needs some time to charge. After a while, you can try to plug it into your own computer. If it fails again, I’m afraid I can’t help you further, for it worked for me.
Rather unrelated note: The video player only plays MTV video files, a format so obscure even VLC can’t play it. Luckily, the package comes with a conversion program on CD.
