The soft reset worked, I am so darn pleased I am beside myself!! I can't believe what an easy fix that was. Good to be up and running, the grandsons love their special programs I have recorded for them, especially their Toddler Tunes.
Thanks again to everyone, I have book marked ALL of the suggestions just incase there is a next time but with a different problem.
