Question about TruTech SMP-1 GBL MP3 Player

1 Answer

TruTech MP3 1 GB Player freezing up after no more than 1 min

I have had a TruTech SMP-1 GBL MP3 Player since Christmas of 2008. It's been working fine until around May or June and then it would turn off after playing music for a few minutes. I have reformatted the device countless times and made sure that the music is all synced with the right program. Again, I downloaded songs on to it around Christmas time and it has worked fine until a few months ago. When I turn on the device and it looks like it has turned off, I can still see the blue light on in the dark, even though the screen is blank, it's almost like it has just frozen up or something. When it "freezes up" I can no longer hear music, and the only way to turn it off is to take out the battery and then put it back in and turn it on, only to have it freeze up immediately. I'm thinking that this product is just defective, because I've tried almost everything I've seen online to no avail, but if anyone could tell me something else that may work that would be great! P.S. I have put rechargeable batteries in it that have been fully charged, yet it also did not fix the problem!

    There is no reset hole on this device, and I cannot find the manufacturer's web site. I don't even know if there is firmware on the device, but would be willing to try it if I knew where to download it.

    There is no reset button on this device, and I have no idea where the manufacturer's website is. I've tried searching it under everything I could think of, but have yet to find the website, so I cannot upgrade the firmware.

Please try to reset the player and see whether it helps.
This could be done by inserting a paper clip into the reset hole and press and hold for about 20 seconds.

If this does not help it could be software related issue. Upgrade the firmware via manufacturer's web site.

I had this same problem. If I tried to turn the player on, it just gave me the "format the player" screen. If I turned it off (by removing the battery if necessary) and plugged it into a USB port, it could still be read as a flash drive. I could copy the files to a backup folder on my computer and then (using Windows) I could right-click on the drive and choose Format. When it was finished, I disconnected it from the computer and turned the player back on and it was able to boot normally (it took a little while, but it worked). After rebooting, it automatically recreated the MUSIC.LIB, MUSIC.SEC, SETTINGS.DAT system files and the VOICE directory. I plugged it back into the USB port and copied the music back onto it and it worked fine. So... back up the data and format the player...

I have a trutech smp-1gbl and no drivers do you know where to get


Usually Windows Media Player 10 or above should be enough. For this model, there won't be any driver exclusively unless included with the player when shipped.

Won't Work suddenly.


What is happening when you turn the device on? Does it go on and then shut off? If so you will have to reformat the drive for the mp3 player. Simply plug the mp3 player in and click the drive that appears for the player. It should say this device needs to be formatted. Then just follow the steps. Keep in mind you will lost your songs. If the device stays on, do you see your first song on the list. If you do, try pushing the play button, (very last one on bottom) hard.
