Question about Goodmans GPDR40 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

Bypasses menu screen and goes straight to usb/printer screen

When I boot my media player up, it gets to the menu screen then immediately goes to the usb/printer selection screen. If the battery needs charged, then it will stay at the menu screen for awhile and then goe to the usb/printer screen. WHen it's at this screen, the buttons become unresponsive and the player cannot be turned off. I have tried resetting the player an few times and copying over the software again but none of this has worked. The player is under warranty and I have tried emailing Goodmans but I get no replies and cannot get through to them by phone.

    I have the same problem. After initialise the message

    Mass storage / Direct print appears and then

    Dont connect to PC! Direct to printer!



    None of the controls respond and also connecting to a printer has no effect. Furthermore my pc crashed when connected to the GPDR40.

    Reset has no effect either. I was, however, able to retrieve all the stored files to pc so the material is not lost

    It would be good to use the DPDR40 again though.

    Any suggestions?

    I have The files in a zip file... just replace them after a re- formating of the player should do the trick.

When I plug in the ac cord, the screen goes to Creative screen,


First thing,make sure your battery is charged.When you power on your player,put it close to your ear.If you can hear the hard drive (a faint clicking noise) then your hard drive may be stuck.When you power on player,tap coner of player on mouse pad while player is booting up.If it doesn't work,try again,tapping a little harder.This is a common problem with these players.Good Luck

Boot error


Problem Solved: My MMP8567 screen read ''boot error shutting down''.
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 ;-)

Windows media player will not open onto desktop, but goes straight to the bottom toolbar and sits while playing a CD. I can't get into the program to make any changes or corrections or help.


Start up the media player, right click on the taskbar, scroll up to toolbars, uncheck windows media player. It will pop up to full screen. Now when you minimize it, it will be clickable like a minimized browser window.
