Very loud noise / Corrupt files on PNY Vibe

I have been using my PNY Vibe for about one year now. Now I am facing one serious issue: There is very loud noise when I try to play some files. These MP3 files play perfectly on my PC, and they used to play well on Vibe as well. Now some of the files have horrible loud noise, alternating with the music. It is almost as if I was listening a radio station where the signal is low and one moment I am hearing the music for a second, then loud noise, then music again, then loud noise. The noise comes in irregular intervals and the music plays also irregularly. At the same time, there are certain files that play perfectly. Also the sound recorder works well and I can also listen the files. I have the problem only with the music player function. I assume the memory/filesystem is corrupt. Could this be the reason? Secondly, I have the blinking issue. Sometimes when I turn on the power, the player turns on, off, on, off, on, off.. When I remove the battery and wait for a while, it may turn off and play, or it may not. It is just a random issue. Perhaps it has something to do with our cold climate - warm summers, humid and rainy autumns and cold (zreezing) winters??

    I tried reformatting the stick, I tried both FAT32 and FAT16, but it just says "Error! Reformat media. FAT only!" The filesystem is already FAT. I am using Linux mkdosfs for formatting. What should be the filesystem type? FAT32?

    I re-formatted the player under windows and got rid of the "Error! Reformat media" -message. I also copied some files and got them playing. When copying some more files, it seem to have corrupted the earlier files, and all files have the same noise, again. If I copy the files to my PC, all files are played perfectly. If I copy them back to the PNY player, I hear the same noise again.

    I assume it has something to do with fragmentation of the filesystem or the way linux handles the filesystem. Perhaps the files are non-continuous. Really weird issue. I will have a look on it tomorrow.

According to page 15 of the Vibe manual, "When formatting in Windows XP, if File System is FAT32 or NTFS, VIBE does not work." Step 2 under "Formatting VIBE" states: "After setting File system to FAT, press Start button to format." Don't know if this helps, but, if so, you might want to download the manual from support at pny.com. Sanddollar

Why does Philips GoGear VIBE corrupt folder structure after transferring music


Could be several reasons. The program is only allowing space for certain tracks so puts them in a second folder.
Or the program is making a back up folder, which does not show up in windows (or less you specify show hidden folders).
It has settings that for example only allow a certain number of tracks on an album.

My dell d600 cant produce music sound


What program is playing the sound file? If you want to be completely sure that its not a codec issue then play it with VLC http://www.videolan.org/vlc/ - VLC can play absolutely anything usually.
If it still doesnt play then it can only be one of two things:
1. - corrupt driver / software issue - confirm this by seeing if anything else plays through the speakers, if you get noise from other things then its not this.
2. - Broken speaker - if you cant get anything at all to make noise, and its not 1, then it could be a faulty speaker issue. Technician needs to look at it.

Finally if its only one file obviously it could be a corrupt or broken file, but I'm sure you've tested on more than one file

When I start my gx280 the computer directly go in safe mode only yellow light on and take speed in loud noise.


You possibly have a harddrive issue, The noise thing doesnt sound good. Could be the drive thats physically Faulty.
I would start the computer with your windows cd in, Boot from the cd, And when asked, select the option R for recovery consol.
Once in the recovery consol, Run the CHKDSK /P command, And let check disk Find and repair corrupt files/ Hives.
If that doesnt help, You could also try doing a repair instalation, By using a similar method as above, Except when prompted, Select R for repair install.

Hope this helps
