SOURCE: How to update The Samsung T10 firmware

This drove me crazy, too! The trick is that you have to search the download section of Samsung.com with your very specific model number. You can't just use T10 or T10JAW just because that's the example they used on the website. For example, mine was YP-T10JAUY. Save the zip file to your desktop, then extract the files to your desktop (doesn't matter what folder name as long as you remember where the file are). Next, open a Windows Explorer window by right-clicking the "Start" button and select "Explore". Obviously, your T10 should be connected already. You'll see the T10 on the left-side window. HERE'S THE REAL TRICK: you have to get the T10 files to show up in the RIGHT side window. Click on the T10 to expand the internal folders (still in the left side window), then in the left window click on either "Data" or "Internal Storage"--which one you see will depend on whether you use Windows Media Player 10 or 11. Click on that on the left side and it should open the right side Explorer window to the files in the Data or Internal Storage folder. This is where you have to put the firmware. On the right side.

You can't drag-drop the firmware update files into the T10 in the left-side window. This is NOT clear in the firmware update instructions that you see in the new manual that goes with the new firmware. After you copy the firmware to the T10, you just disconnect from the computer and when you turn it on, it should upgrade the firmware.

Those YouTube "how to upgrade firmware" videos don't describe this...a HUGE oversight. None of the other various supposed how-to explanations said this stuff either. JEEZ! It's not that hard if someone would just explain it correctly! I wasted HOURS trying to figure this out. I hope it helps you.

My mp3 player wont charge but will turn on when pouted in


connect the Sansa (via the player's USB cord) to different USB ports on the computer until the Sansa starts to charge. A weak or non-working USB port won't charge the Sansa.

  • Reset the Sansa MP3 player. Slide the player's "Power" switch all the way up to the "On" position. Hold the switch in that position for 20 seconds. The Sansa resets. Try to charge the player.
  • Install the latest firmware onto the Sansa MP3 player. Download the Sansa Firmware Updated (link in References), and then click the link in Resources for the specific model of Sansa you own to learn how to update the player's firmware.

    Take out the batteries from the slot and wait until the screen goes black.
    Insert the batteries the same way they were mounted and attached the lid again.
    Push the power switch upward to turn on the device.

    Tips & Warnings

    A good idea to stop Sansa devices from freezing is to always make sure that the player's firmware version is up-to-date. Download the firmware updater software from the Sansa website (see link in Resources).

    To update :

    Updating the firmware of your Sansa MP3 player is easy, and it will correct problems with the original software, and even add new features. Follow the instructions below to bring your device up to date. If you have any questions about the process, please consult the Sandisk website and support forums for more specific information. Links to these sites are provided at the end of this article.

    things you'll need:

    * A Sansa MP3 Player
    * A Computer with an Internet Connection

    instruction:

    Automatic

    Verify that the player is fully charged.

    Verify the the player is unplugged from your computer.

    Go to the Sandisk support site, linked below, select your player, and download the Sansa Firmware Updater software. Follow the instructions for installing it on your computer. If you need them, you may also download user manuals for your or watch how-to videos on updating the firmware.


    Put the player in MSC mode. Go to the settings menu, select the USB submenu, and then select MSC. Some players with early firmwares do not have the USB options in the menu. If this is the case with your device, then there is another way to force it into MSC mode: Put the device in "hold" mode by sliding the hold switch until orange is visible. Next, press and hold the left (rewind) button until the screen changes. Go to the next step.

    Plug your Sansa player into your computer and wait. The Firmware updater should launch automatically. Follow the prompts to update your player. Be certain not to unplug your player until the updater is finished. The software will tell you when it is safe to disconnect.

    Tips & Warnings


    If the above does not work for any reason, there is another way to update the firmware, by manually installing the necessary files. Consult the official support forum for specific instructions for your device. See the link below.


    Be sure not to unplug your device while it is being updated. This could permanently ruin it.

    Hope it helped...

    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 www.memorexelectronics.com.

    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.

    Charging


    USB Cable Make sure that the USB cable is properly plugged in and use the original cable that came with your player. Try a USB plug o the back of the computer. These plugs have more power available.
    Computer in Hibernation mode Make sure the computer isn't entering hibernation or sleep mode while the device is connected. The computer must be ON in order to charge your player. Check you screensaver and power settings.
    USB Port 2.0 Make sure the player is connected to a USB 2.0 port (1.1 occasionally causes charging problems).
    Battery Make sure the battery is fully charged. It takes approximately 3 hours to fully charge the battery.
    Latest firmware Depending on what Sansa player you have, make sure it's up to date with the latest firmware.
    AC charger (optional) AC chargers (sold separately) have a 500-1000 milliamp max output, which provides much better charging ability than a USB port. These accessories are available on our online store.
    Next try and reset the player. Resetting the player: 1. Slide and hold the Power switch up for approximately 20 seconds. 2. Release the Power switch. 3. To turn the player on, slide the Power switch up then release instantly.
    Once it is back working, go to the SanDisk support site and get the updater program and update your firmware.

    My tge sigmatel hb500 mp4 player displayed a message saying that my internal drive needed formatting, so i updated the firmware, and now it will not display anything but a white screen


    Firmware updates are fairly iffy for the hb500, and you should have formatted (deleted everything on) the player, not updated the firmware.
    If you can, connect the player to a windows PC via usb, then go to my computer and right click on the mp3 player. select "quick format" which will delete everything, and hopefully the fimware update will either work or be deleted. This is a long shot, I really don't expect it to work...

    Can't get sansa sandisk mp3 player to charge


    Battery does not have to be depleted, there is a reset as well as a Recovery Tool from Sandisk's website. You will need to upgrade the firmware if your computer is running Windows Vista.

    These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.

    Reset the Sansa Player first. On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer. Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced.
    Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website.
    Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
    Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp
    If these fail, then:
    Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
    If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version).
    You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer.
