Memorex MMP3642A - SigmaTel format

Inserting a 1 gig SD card gives an error message that it must be formatted using SigmaTel Formatter. I cannot find such software and have tried what Memorex suggests to no avail. Any help will be appreciated.

Re: 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.

My tascam dr 100 gives a 'writing failed' file error' message and stops recording

Try using a smaller memory card. This only happens to me when using a 4- or 8-gig card. 2-gig and below, No error.

I have a road tech ha90 digital music player . inserting a sd card with mp3 and wma format music . i get a erro message.

First, many SD storage music players do not support HCSD. Is the SD card bigger than 2gig? This could be the problem. Try a smaller SD card.

Missing a card, how do i get one? and what software do i download to make it work. How do i get music and videos on here?

Zvue uses a standard SD memory card (I think there may be a 2 Gig upper limit). Mine came with a 1 Gig SD card and I can use the one from my digital camera as a spare. I use an HP card reader plugged into my PC and just drag and drop files as needed onto the SD card. Then put the card into the Zvue.
To convert the videos download "Free Video Converter" and use the following settings: Output format - Avi, Codec MPEG-4, Size - 240 x 176, Fps - 15, Bitrate - 4880. Choose Rescan from the Options menu, and then relax and enjoy the music.

Preformat : By Fix-shad0w

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 or
Open up 'My Computer'. You should see it under the list of available drives.
Check its contents first to make sure that you have the right drive.
In 'My Computer', right-click on the drive and choose 'Format'.
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.
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.

See other solutions posted here about downloading new firmware. Included is holding down the play button when you turn it on and connect it. Click the box to reformat the disc and install ver 1.5 or later of firmware. It wipes the drive but it works. Good luck!

Transferring MP3 files from PC "C" drive "My Music" folder to SD card

you may want to try downloading only those that didn't download the first time. Sometimes when you try to download a large file (all the songs) it causes the "error message" you talk about. You may want to delete files already downloaded, or save the files downloaded to a different file folder, and try the download again.

Trouble using an SD Card

If Sansa e130 or 140 is version 1.x.x.10, SD card MUST be formatted as FAT (FAT16). Music files need to be on the root directory for better performance. I have a SD card (2 gig) formatted as FAT16 and the music plays good.

I was not able to upgrade my e130 to Version Firmware.
Hope this helps

HA90 MP3/WMA player

When I was looking at this product, I contacted the manufacturer and they made it clear the unit worked best with a 512 mb or smaller card. The problem is not with Sandisk or the SD manufacturer, it is with the HA90.
