    This problem started when I first replaced a battery after the former one ran down during use.  I have removed and replaced the same battery or a different one multiple times with same result.

    I have the same problem as yours.  I got it to work using the firmware, but then went to "boot error" again.

My MMP8567 screen read ''boot error shutting down''.

Update the firmware. Download directly from Memorex site, Support section.

Everytime I plugged it in to the computer the computer would find it but then it would disappear almost immediately.
I downloaded the Updater program from Memorex but it couldn't find the player.
The directions from Memorex said ''Hold down the play button and plug in usb cable.'' Another set of Memorex directions said, ''Hold down the power button and plug in usb cable.'' Neither worked for me.

SOLUTION: I finally held down the LOCK/UNLOCK button and plugged in the usb cable. My computer found the player immediately and a software driver window popped up asking for a driver. I let windows search the internet and it found and installed the driver. The driver it was looking for was: ''player recover device class driver''

After windows confirmed it recognized my mp3 player I started up the Firmware update program and was able to update the player.

I tried to be clear and detailed. Good Luck ;-)

When I turn my player on it says boot error, shutting down I have songs on it and have been using it for five months. This is a new problem. Memorex mmp8567


Memorex=3M. Like the video tapes, it's guaranteed for life. There's probably nothing you can do yourself if it uses MTP as opposed to UMS, otherwise you could just format it on your PC and start over.

Boot error


Hello all:

I just resolved this same boot error problem with my Memorex MMP8567 mp3 player. After talking to technical support, they could not resolve it, so I decided to try it myself. Here is what I did step by step:

1. Downloaded and installed the firmware for the player from memorex web site.

2. In windows xp, click on Start>All Programs>Digital Audio Player>Memorex MMP8567 Firmware Download to start the firmware program.

3. Connect the USB cable for the player to the computer's USB port.

4. Remove battery from the mp3 player and connect it to USB cable. At the same time depress and hold BOTH the 'menu' button on the left of the player and the volume control button on the right of the player for a few seconds until you see "initializing" in your firmware software program. Then click on the "format" option within this same firmware program. (Note: this will erase all your files on the player, but will also get rid of whatever is causing the boot errors!)

5. When the firmware program is ready, click on start and wait until it is finished.

6. Your MMP8567 should now work just fine!

I hope this helps out someone. Good luck!!

It says boot error shutting down and my pc won't recognise it


I have also had the same problem. Go to Google mail and type "MMP8567 boot error" in the search. You will get results where there is links to get the firmware. Especially, from FixYa. Down load the firmware and install it in your PC. Then it will format your player and install the new firmware. Your recorded songs will be lost.
