Error Code 82040100

When I try to import files and synchronise the device, I receive the Error Code 82040100. Even after several attempts at re-starting my PC and closing and re-opening Connect, and also re-setting the walkman, I still receive the same message. Strange because I have been able to import files before. Has anyone else had this problem?

ERROR CODE 82040100 SOLUTION: here's what I did to solve this problem: -update walkman's firmware to latest version (3.0) -control panel > system > hardware > device manager uninstall the driver for the walkman (remove device) -now connect player can initialize the player again, but I installed Sonicstage CP 4 which is much better anyway.

This sounds like you've got one of three things happening:

1 - Your USB cable is dying slowly. Over time connections become seperated within the cable. This causes data loss and all sorts of funny errors. Try a different cable and see if that helps.

2 - Your USB plug is malfunctioning or underpowered. If you are attempting to use a USB 2.0 device on a 1.1 connection, errors may prevent you from doing what you want to do. Try a different USB port, see if that helps.

3 - Your MP3 player has a setting somewhere locking files to the device itself. If windows tries to delete a locked file, you will receive an error. Browse through the manual of your device or the settings on the device itself and see if there's a lock or protection or USB mode somewhere.

Because you're getting the "cannot read from source or disk" error, I am strongly geared towards #1. Get yourself a new cable and see if that doesn't solve the problem.

It think its something to do with the DRM on your PC download this OMG Status file to check to see if all is working OK. It will tell you if the SDK is working

DRM OMG Status Check v1.0

It will also tell you the error code for example error 80040154 means that the application software is not loaded.

Many problems in using the FM37 media player. I wish I had bought the next Philips up from the 2GB model I have. At least they 100% know how to develop decent software, even a child could use. Using any...

I did solve the problems with the LG FM37 media player. After the download of the LG FM37 firmware to the latest version 2.20EN, the device kept mentioning "download & press record". As nearly every function is controlled by touching the screen, I pressed where it said "record" in the message. Of course to no avail. Then I though perhaps it is suggesting the voice record button on the side of the device, and when pressed the device did it's thing and transformed to version 2.20. When I turned the device on, all the files had become question marks, and nothing functioned. In fact I could not turn it off. So, **** the reset/microphone hole with a needle, I decided the best thing to do was to format the thing from the settings selections. Prior to the re-format, the device kept mentioning "error code 9001". That disappeared once the device was re-formatted. And that did the trick, once the re-format was done, there were no files, for sure, - but the first video a Donald Duck cartoon from Youtube was successfully downloaded. Previously I had been using a free on line video converter to convert the Youtube FLV to AVI - which is what the FM37 converter changes files to, then I would run that through the FM37 LG converter to size for the device. But it seems happier to have the FLV converted to WMV. I use the free "Any Video Converter", then to run that through the LG media converter, which it transforms to AVI. Since the re-format of the device and the conversion thing, the videos have all neen synchronised normally. I haven't solved the "Library" issue on the LG Media Converter, which still thinks there are a lot of files in the Library, which are no longer on the device. There is no delete facility, - crazy. But Windows media does allow you remove files from the device, but if set to automatic synchro, Media Player annoyingly reinstalles them in the device. Change Windows Media player to manual operation, to stop that. I don't know what changes firmware version 2.20EN made, but one useful thing is a "trash bin" icon at the top of file contents (videos in this instance). You can click on the file you wish to delete, then the trash can to delete it there and then. Useful for files you downloaded to the device without converting, for instance. However, it seems the LG Media Centre *will allow only an AVI file through (without further processing), but if not converted, the device itself will just show an error message and play the next video. The Philip's "Go Gear" Media Centre would *not allow you to download incorrect files. I like the way the LG plays all the video files one after the other, without intervention, as does the Philips (which can also repeat). That is the main reason I didn't buy Creative Zen, as one always has to return to the menu to selct the next video.

Error code:00007180

I have this problem too. Found that if you go to the folder that has the music file in it, right click on each problem file and select 'open with -> " and choose Sonic stage, then it will import the file. Next problem may be that it imports it with 'unknown' as the file name but if you then right click on the file within SonicStage and select 'Get CD info' it will find it. Tedious if you have several dozen/hundred files that won't import I'm afraid...
