    We bought an offbrand mp4 player and now I cant' get anything to download. I keep getting the message "Internal Error, reformat internal media with sigmatel formatter." I even emailed the company (TGE Group HB500) with my question. Noone has responded yet.

    I've had the same problem with The TGE group HB500 MP4 video player, it says " Error! reformat internal media with sigmatel formatter" When I pree play after that I can listeen to my music, but when I plug it into the computer to ad/remove things, it says this disk is corrupt or unreadable. I e-mailed the company, but I doubt they will respond, I e-mailed them before several months ago, an I still have no response. I am not happy! I suggest that everyone who is having this problem tell it to their freinds and family how much of a problem this is, and how they do not help their customers. I hope that this can be fixed!

Error! Reformat
external Media With
Sigma Telformatter.

If You See This Error On Your RCA Jet ( S2001 A)
Then Your Absolutely Screwed!
I Hope You Kept The Receipt!
If Not Go Spend Another 50$ ( Keep The Receipt This Time )!
The RCA People Forgot Mention That The Memory Chip In The
Jet (S2001 A ) Is Easily Damaged or Easily Wiped Clean When
Attaching The USB Cable To A PC That Recognizes It As A Storage Drive !..Also If You Go Past 975mb of free Space Even Though It Says It Will Hold 1GB Of Music You Get The Same Error So Remember 2 Things ....
#1 Do Not Go Past 975 mb Of Free Space With Music
#2 Save The Receipt Every Time You Buy A Jet !

Sorry If Im Blunt ..But If It Helps I Had To Buy Another One Myself Cause I Had No Idea It Was A ( POS ) With Issues !!!

I formated my mp3 and it ggave this code. reformat internal media with sigmatel formatter


Preformat : By Fix-shad0w

#1
Insert your memory card into your computer's reader if you have one. If not, you can purchase a multi-format USB Memory Card reader from Amazon.com or Buy.com
#2
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
#3
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
#4
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
#5
Leave all the options as they are and click on 'Start'. This is a non-reversible process so make sure this is what you truly wanted to do in the first place.
#6
Once the process is completed, take the memory card out and insert it into your Digital Camera or any other device. Try to browse to it to make sure it works fine now.

TGE 2GB MP4 Video Player


I had the same problem, and I solved it by going to "My Computer", right-clicking the mp4 player, and clicking "Format...". The default paremeters were already preset, so I just clicked "Start" in the dialogue box. The paremeters were :
Capacity:  1.87 GB (prolly won't be exactly the same for everyone)
File System:  FAT32
Allocation unit size:  16 kilobytes
I did not check "Quick Format"
Mine now works fine.
Note: I have Windows Vista, and I'm not exactly sure how the formatter will work on other OS's

TGE 2GB MP4 Video Player


I can at least tell you how to reformat it. Go to http://www.tgegroup.com/en/support/download.htm
and use the correct firmware/driver link. It is going to be in the RAR compression format. If you don't have something that can decompress RAR formats, you can get the free program called autounpack (just google it). After you get the file decompressed and the program installed, you can run the program to update your firmware. There is a box you can check to reformat your player as part of that process. Hope that helps a little.

Memorex MMP3642A - SigmaTel format


A few suggestions:
1] I’ve tried using a 1GB sd card in the MMP3642A with no success. Interestingly, I can transfer files to the 1GB card when it is in the MMP3642A, but when I turn on the player to listen to the files, I get the sigmatel formatter error message. I tried running the sigmatel formatter, but it doesn’t understand the 1GB size. Apparently whoever programmed this braindead formatter program only programmed it for up to 512MB sd cards. Interestingly, I tried flashing this player with the MMP8500 firmware, and then the player does play files off of the 1GB sd card, but the LCD is mostly cutoff and only 25% of the LCD shows up. So it seems the only obstacle to using a 1GB sd card is this stupid formatter program. I tried formatting the sdcard to fat16 instead of Fat32, but that did not help

2] If you want to use a card with more than 64MB, you need to use the CD that was with the player. DO NOT USE AUTORUN! Explore the disc, go into the "products" folder, run the stusbmscformat.exe application. It will show a the drive letter for the player, click the arrow and select the next drive letter down, then press start. This worked for me, I hope it will be useful. Why memorex doesn’t address this issue is beyond me.

3] How do I correct the error: Reformat external media with sigmatel formatter? If you have installed the software disc that you received with your MP3 player, you will need to follow these instructions; -- From your computer, click 'START' -- then 'PROGRAMS' -- then 'MEMOREX' -- then 'FORMAT' -- choose the 2nd drive If this doesn't correct your error, you will need to return the memory card to the retailer for an exchange. connect your memorex mp3 player , then turn it on and click start .....i did the same and its working now.
