BenQ Joybee 130 Won't play MP3

I've verified my formats; mp3 & wma. I can get FM radio. It started giving me intermittent problems, but now won't play any songs I've loaded to it. I've checked the battery and it's good. Please help.

To clear this problem, you must use the "firmware upgrader" from the manufacturer. Select the "format data area" checkbox when running the utility. You can download the utility and the instructions here:

Re: BenQ Joybee 130 Won't play MP3

Well, I have the exact same problem. Occasionally I can get an MP3 to play, but it only works if I play the radio for about 10-15 minutes and then play an MP3. Sometimes it will work, sometimes it won't... Sorry I can't answer it completely, tho.

When i connect joybee in my pc, i can not see my files

umm are your files on the mp3 players hard drive or on an SD card?

if they are on the harddrive, plug the usb cable into computer and mp3player, go to 'My Computer' there should be a new drive found called Joybee '130 (E,F,G,etc:)' double click this drive, withinn the drive should be three folders, FMRadio, MICIN, and MP3, double click mp3, drag and drop (or copy-paste) the mp3 files into the folder and you should be good.

If your files are on an SD card, you will need an SD cardreader, plug the cardreader into the computer, and again drag and drop(or copy-paste) the mp3 files onto the card

you likely have a music file other than an mp3 on there ( possibly wma or m4a file) i had a bunch of wmas on mine and wouldnt play, deleted them and added mp3 files and mine worked fine.

No continuous play

hold mode button for a few seconds, then select the play mode option, then select how you want it to play thruogh songs, that may be the problem..

Playing songs on the mp3 player

The songs are in the wrong format - convert to mp3 and you'll be fine

Internal 512 is invisible

There is a switch on the SD card that allows you to lock it. Check if the switch isn't on the "locked" position, that might be what's making its content inaccessible. Hope this solves it!
