Trouble w/ 250 controls

I have this new c250 and I synched it to Win MP.  But when I turn on the c250 it takes me top the first song, one of the pre-loads and starts playing.  So I hit MENU  and it brings me to the MUSIC screen.  I select and it brings me to the Menu

Play all

Play previous Artists

and so on

Buy I cannot navigate this with the Down/Option menu.  When I press it I get a picture of the album. If I hold it down the song is added to the Go List. The Play, Previous and Rewind do not work.  Any ideas?

It sounds like you’re hitting the silver center button.  That’s the select button.  If you are hitting that one try pushing the raised area around the center silver button.
