Question about PNY Vibe MP3 Player
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??
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
