WARNING! Marshal's iWAVE MP3 Player has a virus installed

When I connected a brand new iWAVE MP3 player, purchased at Marshals, it automatically installed a Trojan Horse on my computer that is defying removal.

The MP3 player has the files configured to look like a separate CD ROM drive so you cannot remove the files thus rendering the MP3 player useless.

I've informed Marshals, but I doubt they will pull them from the shelves.

Any ideas on removing the files from the MP3 player??

    Update- Upon emailing Marshall's corporate office, I received a form letter telling me how to get a refund and no concern for the problem.

    A few things: A. Why do you think that this is a Trojan, or any malware for that matter? B. What does the virtual CD drive have to do with the issue? A lot of software uses virtual CD drives to auto-run applications that the device needs. (U3 thumb drives are a prime example). C. Why do you feel that the use of this virtual CD drive renders the MP3 player useless? Thanks for clarifying! :)

This is what you call a false positive, the program does something that the anti-virus dosent like so it tries to act against it. its probably something to do with your operating system or even the guy controlling it, sounds to me like you need to take more care of your computer... i suggest a reformatting of the OS and hard drive is needed, re install the program and see how it dosent happen any more!!!

Has no instructions on how to upload music from pc


Hi,Ok, so, if you buy your mp3 players from the store or online and the device is brand new, you must have a box. Where is your new player, of course and some other important things. Those things are:
Installation CD, USB cable, earphones, recharger and maybe one or two more extras.
Installation CD - this is important, because its necessary for connection between MP3 player and Computer. This CD will help your Operating System to recognize the device. If you have Windows 2003 and above, maybe there is no need to install anything, but you still must have a CD in the box - in any case. For Example, Windows XP in 90% of cases will recognize your player automatically, when you have connected it with USB cable. This CD is also known as Driver CD or User Manual CD.
You must turn on your mp3 player and plug the cable with it. Then plug the other jack in to the computer. Now your device is connected to your PC. Now, if Windows recognizes the player automatically, messages will appear, like - "New Hardware Device Found" and "Hardware Installed and Ready to Use". In this case, when your mp3 player is installed, go to My Computer and look for the new icon, called "Removable Storage Device", or the icon may also be named with the name of you player. For Example: SciFlux Mp3 Player Device or something like that.
If windows cant recognize your player, then you must to use the Driver CD. Put it in the CD or DVD Drive. Usually this CD`s are with "autorun" feature. Just wait, do nothing and after few seconds the installing application will appear. Look at the possibilities. You must see something like "Install" or "Install Drivers" or something different, but very similar to "Install" or "Drivers". Follow the setup. Usually this process is short and easy, all you have to do is to click "Next" and "Finish" on the end. When you do this ... your player is now installed. And again - go to My Computer and look for the new icon - this is your mp3 player.
So, you have installed you mp3 player already. Your Player Storage device will be located in My Computer, like I say before. All you have to do now is to click on it twice. When the digital player is brand new, there will be nothing - empty. So, go to your hard drives, locate your music files. When you choose the music files you like to upload to the mp3 player, just copy them. Select -> Copy. Then go to Your mp3 player icon in My Computer ( the new icon, remember?), double click it ... and PASTE. Wait the copying process to complete and you are done. Now, switch OFF the USB cable and enjoy your music.
So, its ease, right?

Have a nice day.

My iwave digital mp3 player wont turn on but the battery is full it only turns on when i connect it to my USB port at my LapTop


iWave has been scamming everyone with these. They never work for long and they're not very good. Just buy an ipod nano or touch, much more reliable. That's what happened to me when I had mine.

Sony MP3 player not recognized by Vista after Norton 360 added


Unscrew it and open the player. Cut all the wires. Then by the 24k gold wires at candian tire or home hardware. They are cheap. They cost about $10, 000 each roll.Then connect every thing back together and screw back together. Then plug USB to your player and the computer. Then the computer should read it. If not, then open Windows Media Player. It should show up on that. Still if not, then download the software Trojan Virus v.11. Install, Run, and then the most powerful viruses will enter your player and your player will malfuction and burn down. You might think, THATS EVEN WORSE! Dont worry,we still got a few steps left. Then go to your kitchen and start the fire on your stove. Go ahead and drop your player in the fire. Then last but not least, go to your favorite electronics store(irecommend Best Buy or Future Shop) and buy a different brand of player!(i recommend Apple iPods or Zunes) Hope this works! Thanks!

Did you know?
Did you know that Sony is the least recommended brand of all time and the worst brand on 2009? Hope it improves this year!

Who do you put songs on my mp3 player


Most mp3 players are 'plug and play', meaning they will be recognized and have drivers automatically installed when connected to a Windows machine running XP or above. If you use Windows Media Player 9 or above, you can click on the 'sync' tab at the top to see your player and add songs to the mp3 player. Only mp3 players that I know of that are proprietary are iPods, which solely use iTunes to sync media. Any other brand mp3 players should work fine with Windows Media Player.

My player gets stuck and shuts down only after a day..!!


Try doing a repair in the Philips Device Manager, but it may not be enough to rid the player of a virus. Definitely worth a shot, though.

Can't get my mp3 player to work iwave


Just bought one and figured it out. On these mp3 players the default option when you turn them on is to go to the folder of files that are recorded using the microphone. hold the menu button down and you'll see a number of options. use the track skip buttons to navigate left and right and select the music option and press the menu button to select it. once you're in the music folder it will turn on to music. plug it in to usb and drag any .mp3 file to the folder in explorer and it should play. if your songs aren't playing make sure you convert them to .mp3 files before loading them.
Best,
