Probably because the files you are trying to play are not .MP3 files (an .MP# file has a name that looks like 'songname.mp3). Those are the only files your player recognizes and can play.

SOURCE: my MDA 256-100 player tells me "no files" but when connected to PC via USB music file appear and I am able to play, what wrong????

This is most likely a file format or digital rights management issue. Make sure the files are in a compatible format. The computer can play them because it is just looking at the player as a storage device and does not rely on it for playback.

If the files are .wma, try converting them to .mp3. Your device may have come with software that will perform this function for you.

NO DATA appears on the sreen


Hi,

Reformatting your player will delete all existing data files which you have personally installed on the unit.

Reformatting does not however, delete any drivers or firmware.

If you enter the menu and look for your System Files folder, you should be able to determine if your firmware is still present.

If you're concerned, just go to the manufacturer's website and download the latest firmware for your player, save the firmware file onto your pc, connect your player to your pc and transfer the firmware file directly to your player.

Follow the installation as per the instructions.


Hope this helps.....

I couldn't delete song files from T.sonic 850. I connect it to my computer thru USB & when i delete the song files, it get duplicated & appear as 0MB. when i play the player, those songs appeared...


I had this exact problem as well. The solution was to allow Windows to "Scan and Repair" the file system. The scan will likely detect all the duplicate 0-byte files created as you tried to delete files, and will remove these. In addition it should resolve the underlying problem such that you can now delete files normally without creating more of these 0-byte duplicates.

Player Problem, Connect to PC, Start Device Manager


Sounds like one or more system files have been deleted or corrupted on the player, possibly by formatting the player from windows.

Install and run the Philips Device Manager and select the Repair / Restore option. Follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the device and re-load the system files.

ALL FILES WILL BE DELETED FROM THE DEVICE. Back up files before restoring.
