Welcome to the world of Microsoft Windows Updates - late 2007-early 2008. Ever since the mid-Novemebr Windows Updates, there have a been a rash of problems with players that worked just fine previously. The protocol before was that every mp3 player was an MSD or Mass-Storage Device. Now the protocol is that most players have to be a MTP or media transfer protocol device.

Try resetting the device by inserting a small #1 paperclip into the reset hole. Hold it in for a good 15 to 20 seconds - the player will shut off and then power up again.

When you say that the firmware upgrade failed, did it fail to upgrade the firmware, or did the firmware upgrade fail to resolve the freezing issue? I know for a fact that the firmware upgrade is good on the website.

As far as the computer not recognizing the device, I have often found that restarting the computer rather than the player will resolve the issue. In fact, I had more trouble with my Rio back in 2005 than I do now. In those early days, I was always restarting my computer over and over to get it to read.

Let me know if you have continued problems.

My mpio mg100 keeps freezing, i have to keep resetting it?


Hello

The freezing may be as a result of;

Outdated Firmware
1. Every few months,the manufacturer will publish a firmware update designed to fix bugs in the previous firmware and improve the overall function of the device. To check for updates, connect your player to your computer and open the player software. If you are connected to the Internet, the software will automatically check for updates. If an update is available, a notification window will pop up. Click on the notification to start the new firmware download.

After downloading it installs the new firmware automatically and you are good to go

The freezing might also be as a result of corrupt firmware and you will have to re-format the player,the firmware and all the content will need to be wiped and re-installed.

To do this, you will need to connect your player to your computer,. Launch Windows Media Player while the device is plugged in. Click on the "Sync" button. You should see your player pop up at the bottom of the device list. Left-click once to highlight it, and then right-click to bring up a sub-menu. Select "Format" from the list. All of your content will be deleted and the firmware will be reinstalled.

Philips GoGear Firmware Upgrade
You need to get the latest firmware upgrade from the Philips website:
1. Go to www.philips.com/support
2. Enter your country/language
3. Enter your model # SA6045 or whatever
4. Click on the link for your exact model # (the one w/o the "B" in it)
5. Click on "Software & Drivers"
6. Download the updated "Device/Firmware Manager"
7. Once installed, open the Philips Device Manager
8. Click on the "Update" tab, then the "Update" button (with your mp3 player connected to the computer, of course)
9. Your Mp3 players firmware will update automatically
If you do not have the latest version of the Philips Device Manager installed (the latest is the version from the Philips website), then clicking the "Update" button will give you a false positive saying "The firmware on your device is already up to date."

5) Then upgrade the firmware ( note that this will erase all the songs- read the read me file that come with firmware);

Error message "failed to connect to player" "data blocked failed"


Don't buy an iPod...
I would recommend wiping and rebooting your player cos it's cheaper:

Windows only.... Please post if you are not using windows...

Open My Computer with your Rio plugged in.
Right click on your Rio player and click on format.
Leave the default values - if it asks you something then use your initiative.
Then click on format.
Then when it has finished formatting go to your firmware (can be downloaded from: http://www.digitalnetworksna.com/support/rio/product.asp?prodID=112).
Follow the instructions and then it should load the firmware onto your player.
When it has done then your player should (in theory!) work properly.

Hope this helps

Creative


try downloading the MP3 player recovery tool from Creative's website (the tool contains the latest firmware update available -- 1.15.03). Plug your ZV+ into your PC, run the program and let it update the firmware. Then format, reload your music and try it.

By the way, before updating the firmware, let the battery have a full charge, ok?

I hope it won't keep freezing on you after the update.

There are two ways of updating firmware updater or internet updater. complete instructions are also available. further you would need to connect your Rio to a PC to perform the upgrade. Good luck and pls post back should you need further information. Kind regards.
