Question about Koss CDP3600 Portable Personal MP3/CD Player

Trutech 1GB MP3 player Model SMP-1GBL

Hi all! My boyfriend just got the player in the subject line. It worked for a day or two and now it says "Flash Error. Backup files and reformat device". It didn't come with any device drivers, works via flash drive, and of course the manual was lost in the Christmas madness! Any help would be appreciated.

    I've reformatted it several times after the screen came up telling me to do so. I thought I had it fixed, was even able to add files again, and then poof! It suddenly needs formatted again.

    When I try to turn on my Trutech Model SMP-1GBL it will not respond and the screen stays off. I have tried to put battery's in multipul times yet it still will not turn on. When I plug it into the computer on the other hand it works but once I take out the USB drive it turns to the blank grey screen. WHAT DO I DO TO FIX IT!

  • poison_ivy_2 Jul 14, 2008

    I am having a similar issue with my mp3 player. When I plug it in to the port, in the front of my computer, it reads the program, then it ignores the drive, telling me that there is a corruption while my computer is reading the device. I do not have a receipt with this product anymore, so how should I return this product, or find a way to correct this issue?

  • e602s Jul 15, 2008

    omg this mp3 player is a POS!!! it worked fine for about 3 weeks and then one day it kept saying error when i tried to play certain files...so i reformatted it and added files to it again. once i finished wasting my time downloading music for nothing, i unplugged it and now the screen lights up the same, but theres no letters or anything displayed on it!!!!

  • hkorporal Jul 31, 2008

I have had a similiar problem. When I went and turned it on, the thing kept shutting off. Went to plug into computer and it wouldn't recognize. Here I found the problem. I was deleting some files from the player and I deleted the voice file. Which is what the player runs on. Do not ever delete the voice file... What I did was plug the unit into my computer. Clicked on the drive that it used to run off of. It then said I needed to format device. Went and did the format. Unfortunately it erases all the songs, so I had to redownload onto player, but now it is working properly and doesn't shut off and my computer recognizes drive.

I have the same player and had the same problem. First make sure that you back up your files. Open up My Computer, right click on the device, and click onto Format. It will format the player, but will clear all your music, that's why you need your files backed up. It did fix the problem and my player now works fine. I hope it resolves your problems.

    Did you read my last post, get your self a good usb data cable.

    Problems?#@!*&%, at the command prompt ( you know, dos ) type, where X: is your drive letter.
    chkdsk x: /f /r

    It will take a few minutes depending on your machine.

    Then back to explorer or my computer. With the mouse, right button, go to properties on the bottom. click on tools. Check the drive again. High light the Automatically... and the Scan... box.

    When the scan finishes, Defrag the drive.

    It probably is better to erase all files. Then copy your good files at one time.

Posted on Feb 06, 2008

That player is a serious POS. Mine got extremely hot and partially melted. Yours may be a fire hazard too. Don't leave the batteries in it. You might consider returning it. Trutech is a seriously crappy brand of electronics. Google "Why you should NOT buy Target's Trutech brand."

One of the files uploaded is corrupted you have to remove all files manually. Go to my computer the mp3 player and open the internal memory and erase everything. Then start from scratch you might have to plug it in without a battery in it to reset it.

What you need to do is remove the battery. plug it into the computer and it will recognize it as a drive. format the drive. the when you put the battery back in you just hold down the play button and it will come up.

My ipod is showing file system error


Hi


File system error can appear due to unplugging the MP3 player without disconnecting it. It may have happened due to formatting it with a different file format or due to memory issue with the player. Please reformat your MP3/MP4 player. Connect it to the computer, go to My computer-> right click on the mp3/mp4 player after it is displayed-> select format-> Format it as FAT32 File system. Formatting the MP3/MP4 player will delete all the songs/data from the player. So, backup all data before formatting it. Hope this helps...

first you need is a RSD lite program or flash and back-up to flash or reformat your Motorola,

to enter the bootloader

hold * then the # then power button, your phone will boot to bootloader, and you will see there the flash program of your phone,

start the program rsd lite or flash and backup
then connect it to your computer VIA usb, automatically the program will detect your phone,

i prefer that you first buck up your firmware by using F&B (Flash and backup) then use RSD lite to flash your Motorola,

RSD lite its much easier to use than F&B, but for safety backup first your firmware,

Reformat player.

There are two ways to format an Mp3 player - one on the computer itself, and one in Windows Media Player. Both methods will end up erasing all the songs on the player, but the player will be "good as new" after that. Sometimes reformatting in this manner will override the player's native formatting and cause problems - this can be reversed in most cases by updating the player's firmware. Firmware upgrades are available from most manufacturers' websites.

WARNING: The following procedures will erase all songs on the player.

Check if the file system is NTFS. If yes, format it to FAT or FAT32. - Connect player to computer, double-click my computer, right click on icon of mp3 player and select format. This only applies to Windows-based computers.
You can also format the player in Windows Media Player itself:
Connect your Mp3 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 "name of Mp3 player here 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.
