Question about Samsung MP3 & Digital Media Players
I have a Samsung YP-53Z 1gb MP3 player. When i try to turn it on, it shows 'System loading and the percentage...' then 'Free memory space available...' then it turns itself off. I have reloaded the drivers and done all updates available, but it still continues to turn off. I have phoned Samsung, but as it is just out of warranty, they will only suggest a chargeable repair. Please can you help?!?! Many Thanks in advance
There is a hidden file in the root of
the MP3 folders.
It's called SETTINGS.DAT
(It can be seen if you change your explorer view to show hidden files and system files.)
If you delete it from the MP3 player, this hanging problem is solved.
This unfortunately means you need to be near a PC to solve it. It seems to occur when the battery gets depleted mid-song.
