Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems.

If you have not tried this already, please try a master reset of the device and let me know what happens.

Connect device to computer
Press and hold LAP/RESET and POWER
Release POWER when screen turns off (continue to hold LAP/RESET)
Release LAP/RESET when device appears as a drive letter on your computer
