Go to this webpage, http://www.tgegroup.com/en/support/download.htm I'm not sure if it will help you, you should download the correct firmware for your mp4, you can see the correct version of it turning your mp4 on and then you have to go to settings and click to the play button, it will say you the version mine is HB500(V802.551.517), so, I had to download this firmware, but... I have one problem more, my pc doesn't read my mp4, when I connect it and I open My Pc it stop my computer and I can't to see the content of my MP4, I don't know what's the problem I've tried with others computers and it doesn't works, if you can help me please do it, i would be greatful with you all my life.

My tge sigmatel hb500 mp4 player displayed a message saying that my internal drive needed formatting, so i updated the firmware, and now it will not display anything but a white screen


Firmware updates are fairly iffy for the hb500, and you should have formatted (deleted everything on) the player, not updated the firmware.
If you can, connect the player to a windows PC via usb, then go to my computer and right click on the mp3 player. select "quick format" which will delete everything, and hopefully the fimware update will either work or be deleted. This is a long shot, I really don't expect it to work...

See other solutions posted here about downloading new firmware. Included is holding down the play button when you turn it on and connect it. Click the box to reformat the disc and install ver 1.5 or later of firmware. It wipes the drive but it works. Good luck!

I had the same problem, and I solved it by going to "My Computer", right-clicking the mp4 player, and clicking "Format...". The default paremeters were already preset, so I just clicked "Start" in the dialogue box. The paremeters were :
Capacity:  1.87 GB (prolly won't be exactly the same for everyone)
File System:  FAT32
Allocation unit size:  16 kilobytes
I did not check "Quick Format"
Mine now works fine.
Note: I have Windows Vista, and I'm not exactly sure how the formatter will work on other OS's

I can at least tell you how to reformat it. Go to http://www.tgegroup.com/en/support/download.htm
and use the correct firmware/driver link. It is going to be in the RAR compression format. If you don't have something that can decompress RAR formats, you can get the free program called autounpack (just google it). After you get the file decompressed and the program installed, you can run the program to update your firmware. There is a box you can check to reformat your player as part of that process. Hope that helps a little.

Memorex MMP3642A - SigmaTel format


A few suggestions:
1] I’ve tried using a 1GB sd card in the MMP3642A with no success. Interestingly, I can transfer files to the 1GB card when it is in the MMP3642A, but when I turn on the player to listen to the files, I get the sigmatel formatter error message. I tried running the sigmatel formatter, but it doesn’t understand the 1GB size. Apparently whoever programmed this braindead formatter program only programmed it for up to 512MB sd cards. Interestingly, I tried flashing this player with the MMP8500 firmware, and then the player does play files off of the 1GB sd card, but the LCD is mostly cutoff and only 25% of the LCD shows up. So it seems the only obstacle to using a 1GB sd card is this stupid formatter program. I tried formatting the sdcard to fat16 instead of Fat32, but that did not help

2] If you want to use a card with more than 64MB, you need to use the CD that was with the player. DO NOT USE AUTORUN! Explore the disc, go into the "products" folder, run the stusbmscformat.exe application. It will show a the drive letter for the player, click the arrow and select the next drive letter down, then press start. This worked for me, I hope it will be useful. Why memorex doesn’t address this issue is beyond me.

3] How do I correct the error: Reformat external media with sigmatel formatter? If you have installed the software disc that you received with your MP3 player, you will need to follow these instructions; -- From your computer, click 'START' -- then 'PROGRAMS' -- then 'MEMOREX' -- then 'FORMAT' -- choose the 2nd drive If this doesn't correct your error, you will need to return the memory card to the retailer for an exchange. connect your memorex mp3 player , then turn it on and click start .....i did the same and its working now.
