Question about Audio Players & Recorders

2 Answers

I have Rave mp 256 mp3 player. I use a mac with O.S. 10.2.8. I have two questions. FIRST: My player turns on, shows the RAVE MP Title page, but does not go any further through the start sequence. After a few seconds it turns off. WHEN When I used to connect it to my computer it use to show up on the desk top as two files. One was the music folder, the other I assume was the firmware. Now only the music file shows up on the desk top. Do I need to reinstall the firmware? Is it still available? I cant find it on the internet. Second: The software that came with the device won't load onto my mac. It says the install file is unreadable. Is there a copy of that software available that will work on my system? Or it there some third party software that does? Joe

    I had already found the Rave-mp site before contacting FixYa, and tried to enter the support page but failed to get further into the site, I tried both my Safari and Foxfire browsers. They both get me to the home page but no further. I have never been to a site that I couldn't explore before. Any Ideas.

Yes there is firmware.but only the service center or the dealer of this product can provide you.
there are many users facing this same problem.some are able to get the firmware and some are still waiting as the company has stopped proving it in some areas.
hope you get it from the dealer of this product.
thanks.

You can downloaded the firmware update from www.rave-mp.com and then go to support and there will be a link to download the firmware update. After I downloaded and followed the directions on the firmware update, loaded all my songs onto it, then filled up a 256mb sd card and put it in there.
It doesnt have a software for MAC as such, but it connect to either Windows or Mac PCs via USB 2.0, and it supports dragging and dropping of files directly from your desktop to the player.

Hope this will fix your issue

Let me know
Thanks
Kevin

It occasionally happens on mine. I just basically have to hook it up to the PC and reload the firmware. (Tnough it seems the company is no longer in business, you might be able to find the firmware update file out on the net somewhere.) Seems to freeze up more if I have the SD memory card in there. Had better luck with some types of SD cards than others (faster speed cards seem to cause me less probs.)

This means that your unit is defective and is no longer working. The hard drive is bad.

I have bought 3 of these players. All of them worked for a while then had the eventual face/bug on the screen after turning the unit on. When the customer service number DID work, they said that the unit was defective and to return it to the store and get another.

This happened to me, like I mentioned, with 3 different units.

SD Card


Mine works with 2GB card... AFAIK, that's the max, although I haven't tried a 4GB card.

I found updated firmware at:

http://uiss.max.io/

*update*  site has not been updated and download links not working... useful info there nonetheless... I will put the file(s) on my site:

http://french.moren.ca/rave-mp/Rave-MP-Install.zip

http://french.moren.ca/rave-mp/iLO256Manual.pdf

expect them up there by Oct. 20/07...

the ILO player referred to there is electronically identical, if not physical and the update works with all the Rave MP AMP series. I had a hard time finding this but it was worth the effort.


works great :-)

Try a separate SD memory card (no bigger than 512mb). Also try replacing the battery if you haven't already. Mine has done this intermittantly since it was about a year old.
