Cowon iaudio mp3 player

It doesn't seem to accept the charge when i leave it even for a long time. It could charge all night, it can even say completed and i still get very little use out of it. If i wait until the next day to use it then i just get the low bwttery message and it shuts off. Do i need a new battery? How do you get one installrd?

Yes you should get a new battery, it sounds like the battery you have must of died out, or is in bad shape, once you buy a new battery everything should work

Hi. I had problem like this, now resolved. My device is iAudio 9+ otherwise it's not matter.
You can find some solutions on the web but... maybe you can not do proper result first or second time. It comes because of some differences for so lot of devices.
I used this method.
How To Recover your Bricked J3 using Tcctool iAudiophile net Forums
Only one way working for me.
1. Prepare drivers and firmwares. Tcctool and Windows drivers for USB flashmode. Latest FW for your iAudio from Cowon Korea site. Unpack all files/folders into special directory in root of your Hard Drive (c:\COWON for example).
2. Boot your PC in compatibility with non-authorised hardware mode. Press F8 button when PC loading and choose Drivers signature disabled mode.
3. Turn off your iAudio with reset button. Press both M(enu) and VolUp buttons and boot on power. Screen doesn't fire but device standing up in flashmode. Connect USB cable to device, then to PC. On Windows Device Manager you must find new Unknown Device. Install drivers manually from your specific directory.
4. Run on PC new task CMD, e.g. terminal window. Change work directory to your specific, f.e. cd c:\COWON
Run execution tcctool.exe -d cowons9 "name of your FW file"(without quotes).bin
Attention, your FW file (iaudio9P_fw.bin for me) must be in same directory with executable tcctool!
5. After flashing your iAudio must be connected to PC immediately as USB flash device. So you must copy all firmware files (named *.bin) to root of your Cowon device memory. Then reboot, your player must updating firmware and working fine. If still no, try use tcctool to boot on once more, then reboot normally. Copying FW files again doesn't required.
Hey you don't give up!

Problem with my cowon a2

Why don't you try to scan your cowon, with your antivirus??? it should work... and so you'll be able to get rid of the troyan.

I started scaning my A2 a while ago (I have kaspersky ) and it worked.

Earphone socket on the Cowon iAudio XL5 30 gig.

try to send it back to Cowon company, or try to solder the joints, inside the mp3 player most likely it is at the top of the mp3 player, but know what your doing otherwise it can be destroyed, if you don't repair it the right way

Yes it does, but the screen is small and the playback rate (15 frames per second) is slow for a fast action movie.

If you really want a video player with the same audio quality as the X5L, then take a look at the A2 from Cowon.

IAudio X5 not recognised as removable drive

If there's no difference in the operating systems, or other software, a possibility is a faulty USB socket on the computer. Try another USB, or swap workstations... ;] hope it works out
