Firmware Update::Memorex MMP8565

The problem all started when I tried to get some songs off I got the songs downloaded and they are on the computer and I put them on to my brothers mp3 player and they work fine but when I put them onto mine they won't play. After reading loads of stuff I am thinking that the problem is that they are protected with that DRM thing so I read the manual and it says that it should be able to play it anyway and that if it won't I should update the firmware. So I was going to do that. So I downloaded the update thing off the site and got that on the computer and unzipped the folder but I don't understand what I am supposed to do next from what the book says. = ( and I am really afraid that I am going to ruin it if I do it wrong. It says in the book that I should unzip the file and then double click setup.exe in the desktop folder to install the software to my computer I don't see setup.exe or desktop written anywhere!!?!?

Re: Firmware Update::Memorex MMP8565

They're talking about the folder saved on your desktop that you downloaded. It should be something with the name of the player in it. You double click on that folder, and it has setup.exe inside it, and you double click on that. What site did you get the firmware update from?

Hi, my memorex is not switching on now.before it was showing boot error,shutting down, so i formatted it and added new songs and now its stable ie... it switches off in a second after i switch it

I suggest you update the firmware of the player. The update available at Memorex web site:

If that does not work, it may be a problem with the player itself. This product has a 90 day warranty and you can call Memorex Product Support at 1-877-363-6673 between noon and 9pm EST if the unit is under warranty.

My memorex MMP8565 MP3 player will not boot. I have tried reset and charging but it will not come on.

HI. This unit has internal memory(1gb) that can become unstable, thus, causing start up issues. With that said; This will most likely be a dead cell(battery). I would replace the battery with a new one if it is over 1 years old. This lithium cell may be defective. Once you have purchased a new battery, be sure to charge it fully before using the player. It takes three whole hours to set a newly purchased lithium cell. Once that is done, power up the player and update your firmware. Use the steps below to update properly:

1. Download the updated firmware at

2. Unzip the file, then double click setup.exe in the Desktop folder to install the software to your computer.

3. Connect the player to the computer using the supplied USB cable and the installation screen will appear. (If the installation screen does not appear, unplug the USB cable and turn off the unit). Connect to the computer again and press and hold the Power On/Off/Stop button until the installation screen appears.

4. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

5. When finished, click START and locate the newly installed software “Deco” andselect “Firmware Download”.

Now, after the update, you will need to reformat the player. Use the steps below to achieve this:

1. Use the USB cable to connect the player and the computer.

2. Double click on My Computer, then right click "MPT Player", "MMP8565"or "Removable Disk" and left click on"Format".

3a. For "MPT Player" or "MMP8565", at the "Format" window, click OK to confirm and the player will start to format . When
finished, click "OK" to close the Format window.

3b. For "Removable Disk", at the "Format" window, select "FAT 32" from the file system pull-down menu, then click "Start" to format the unit

  • NOTE: Make sure you have selected "FAT 32" at the file system pull down menu; otherwise, after formatting, the player will not work properly.Then, click OK to confirm and the player will start to format. When finished, click "Close" to close the Format window.

  • NOTE; If for some reason you cannot update your firmware, you will need to reformat the player first, then, update the firmware after the reformatting process.

Boot Error, Shutting Down

Go download the firmware from the memorex site. Hole the power and left buttons as you plug it into your computer. It'll be detected as a recoveryclass device, the firmware program should be able to reflash the device and fix it. If not, hold the power and left the entire time that the firmware detector scans, then let it flash the device (including formatting the data area) and you should be good to go.
