Mp4 player - accidental deletion of software

Hi - I also bought a mp4 player (synergy) in Singapore, and gave it to my wife as a Xmas present. I managed to load some songs onto it, but when I tried to delete the demo songs, it deleted most of the software with it. It now cannot function. The main menu options are there (songs, pics, text etc) but when I go in there it simply says "empty disk". That is the same for every menu option. It seems I accidently and very easily deleted all the software. When hooked up to my laptop I see the usb connection there, but when I click on it, it is not recognised.
What can I do? Where can I reload the software?

Re: mp4 player - accidental deletion of software goes...

go to "My Computer"

Right-Click the "Removable Disk" icon, and scroll down to "Properties"

click "Properties" and another window will appear. There are Tabs at the top of the window. click the "Tools" tab.

select the "Check Now" function located next to the "Error-Checking" option. ANOTHER window will appear.

select "Automatically fix file system errors" and click "Start".

This takes around 15 seconds and usually fixes the problem. you will then be able to add/delete files in the MP4 player.

Re: mp4 player - accidental deletion of software

HI, I bought a Synergy as well a week ago in Singapore (without thinking) and am setting it in action right now. When connected to your PC, you should be able to see it as a drive in "my Computor". If so, you can drop WMA/MP3 into it and other as photos. I am still myself struggling to get video content into the unit hense the asian format AMV that is noy easy to find a working converter for. /mats jansson

Please call COBY electronics at 800-727-3592 and let them know you received that player as a Xmas present. They will tell you to send the unit to COBY with $6 money order and you'll receive a new player in exchange. During the Xmas warranty period which lasts until March, you will not need to send a copy of the receipt.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

My ASK 16 GB mp4 player with camera won't play the video I transfer into it cause I accidentally deleted the software files in it after connecting to the computer. Also, I can't restore the software...

I format my mp4 through my computer & when the mp4 suddenly freeze, I just have to connect it to another USB cable to my computer & it'll start working again. Basically, you need 2 'USB cable' to interchange if your ASK mp4 start freezing.

Doesnt do anything,but radio

backup the drive and all folders to your PC.
Then try Formating the Drive. create new folders, i.e music et,c.
** Please note:- The Chinese have very sneaky ways, of making these look bigger in size, than they actually are.
So if you,ve got a 4 gig, and when formatted becomes a 2 Gig.
Thats the true memory storage size.
Try this you guys, good luck.
