It keeps sayin boot error shutting down everytime i try to turn it on


the software files of your player is corrupt and that's why its showing boot error.

The player needs to be flashed for the player to boot well again.

Take care

My SMP-1GBUB DIGITAL PLAYER is not working...

Try rebooting the computer - a cold boot (complete shut off of power and restart). then see if it will mount. It may have arrived with the operating file folder missing or it may have been accidently erased by you.

This unit appears to have a single level directory which holds the boot file to start it up as well as th eaudio files. If th eboot file is missing or was erased it will not work.

However sometimes Windows will forget how to look at it sattachments especially USB items and a restart from scratch will sometimes blow out the cobwebs. A restart won' thurt. Make sure it is a complete power down and not a RESTART (warm boot) or simply re-awakening from sleep mode.

Boot error

Problem Solved: My MMP8567 screen read ''boot error shutting down''.
Everytime I plugged it in to the computer the computer would find it but then it would disappear almost immediately.
I downloaded the Updater program from Memorex but it couldn't find the player.
The directions from Memorex said ''Hold down the play button and plug in usb cable.'' 'Another set of Memorex directions said, ''Hold down the power button and plug in usb cable.'' Neither worked for me.
SOLUTION: I finally held down the LOCK/UNLOCK button and plugged in the usb cable. My computer found the player immediately and a software driver window popped up asking for a driver. I let windows search the internet and it found and installed the driver. The driver it was looking for was: ''player recover device class driver'' After windows confirmed it recognized my mp3 player I started up the Firmware update program and was able to update the player.
I tried to be clear and detailed. Good Luck ;-)

Boot error

Hello all:

I just resolved this same boot error problem with my Memorex MMP8567 mp3 player. After talking to technical support, they could not resolve it, so I decided to try it myself. Here is what I did step by step:

1. Downloaded and installed the firmware for the player from memorex web site.

2. In windows xp, click on Start>All Programs>Digital Audio Player>Memorex MMP8567 Firmware Download to start the firmware program.

3. Connect the USB cable for the player to the computer's USB port.

4. Remove battery from the mp3 player and connect it to USB cable. At the same time depress and hold BOTH the 'menu' button on the left of the player and the volume control button on the right of the player for a few seconds until you see "initializing" in your firmware software program. Then click on the "format" option within this same firmware program. (Note: this will erase all your files on the player, but will also get rid of whatever is causing the boot errors!)

5. When the firmware program is ready, click on start and wait until it is finished.

6. Your MMP8567 should now work just fine!

I hope this helps out someone. Good luck!!

RCA Opal M4002A Won't let me access playlist without shutting down

You need to re-image your firmware--it sounds like something is corrupted there. I have seen this behavior on other mp3 devices in the past; sometimes it requires special techniques to reset the device. Let's hope this isn't the case with your Opal--RCA was rude enough not to provide a handy reset procedure.

If you are daring you can try to replace the firmware files directly on your Opal using your son's files. You need to enable viewing of hidden files to do this: Tools-->Folder Options...-->View-->Show Hidden Files and Folders. Also uncheck "Hide protected operating system files (Recommended)" and say "Yes" to the dialog that pops up. You can change these back later. For MacOS X, open Terminal, then type "defaults write AppleShowAllFiles TRUE", push Enter, Option-click (and hold) the Finder icon, then choose Relaunch.

Now, simply copy your Opal's files over to a local directory on your hard drive (this is a backup so you can't make things worse), and then copy your son's Opal files onto your Opal. The files should be as follows:

All of these files should be placed in the root of the drive--in the folder on the Opal that also shows folders like "Audible", "FMRecord", "Music", "Pictures", etc. After the transfer, stop and unplug your Opal. Try to turn it on and see what happens. If it looks OK, try to hook up to it with Windows Media Player. If you are still having trouble, use the firmware from the RCA website--even if it is the same version. Failing that, you may need to have the device serviced or replaced.

Good Luck!

"Boot Error, Sutting Down"

You may have let a magnet get near the mp3 player. Go to "My Computer" Then double click on the Mp3 player. You will see "Internal Storage" Icon. Right click it and click format. You will lose all data on the device. Also upgrading to 3.003 does not fix the Boot error problem.
