Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
I guess I describe the problem first; I was after a descend portable speakers for my MP3 player - it is a small, cheap 2GB one I got on eBay (sent from HK). It is no brand really but the screen is identical with some of IItronics one I see in Argos, I think with the exception of the body the rest is
the same (it has everything IItronics has).
I got iRythms A-460 off eBay again. It worked with AC Adaptor and my Nokia N95 fine. But does not work with 4xAA batteries at all (it doesn't switch ON even). On top of that as soon as I connected it to my MP3 player it blow up the screen. Now although MP3 player works
I can't see which album I am playing or were I am, basically useless (or as storage).
1- Is there a place can repair these (probably replace screen), is it worth it ?
2- I am sending iRythms back to get one that works with the battery and I have another MP3 player (very similar but "aigo" 2GB) and I am worried if I should connect this one. Although Nokia N95 works fine may be the impedence Ohm of this speaker is too low for small MP3 players, or could be that MP3 player was just a rubish model or the speaker was faulty. Any suggestions/ideas welcome....

It's unlikely to be a fault with the player.
I have just run the Arcsoft Convertor with a DivX encoded .AVI file and it processed correctly.
One possible cause of this problem is that you may not have DivX codecs installed on your PC.
To check this, try playing your .AVI file in Windows Media Player. If it doesn't play, then you will need to download the necessary codecs. Try www.divx.com
If it plays ok, then continue---->
I assume you are trying to convert and transfer directly to the SA6185.
In this case try converting the file before connecting the player and transferring:
Open Arcsoft Media Convertor
Drag the .AVI file into the program window
Click the "Select Player:" drop-down menu and select SA61xx manually.
The "Convert To" setting should default to Folder.
The default folder setting is My Documents/Arcsoft MediaConvertor/
Click "Convert" to start the process.
If this works, then when the process has finished, navigate to the converted file.
Connect the player to the PC, and drag & drop the .WMV file directly into the Video folder of the SA6185.
Disconnect the player when the display says "Ok to disconnect" and restart.
Go to the video option and your movie should be listed and ready to play back.
If the Convert process doesn't work then, the file is most definitely the cause of the problem. If so, post again with details of the file, and how it was created.

I tried to contact Coby via their website email links (General and Techsupport) to no reply. I returned it for a full refund to the store and bought a Emerson. That worked.

Testimonial: "Thanks for you approach. I did the exact same thing! Yet, the Emerson I got had problems of its own that lead me to return it after 2 weeks."
