    I just bought my mp3 player about a month ago and it won't display a screen or shut off. I can hear the music playing but it won't shut down!

    boot error... shutting down. Computer won't recognize it. Downloaded the Deco Firmware update... it doesn't find the MP3 player. Held left and power button while plugging in, as suggested.. still nothing.

    I tried the fix from RoboticGolem, but it didn't work. I've tried plugging the player into several computers with the same result: the computer recognizes the device as MTP but it turns on and off continually and IF an icon appears in My Computer, it is a generic "Removable Disk" icon and it tells me there is no disk in the drive if I try to access it or format it. When I reset the player I get "A problem occurred during hardware installation. Your new hardware might not work properly." I've tried uninstalling the driver and reinstalling it with the Hardware wizard, but nothing works. Is this a dead player?

Go download the firmware from the memorex site. Hole the power and left buttons as you plug it into your computer. It'll be detected as a recoveryclass device, the firmware program should be able to reflash the device and fix it. If not, hold the power and left the entire time that the firmware detector scans, then let it flash the device (including formatting the data area) and you should be good to go.

Hi, my memorex is not switching on now.before it was showing boot error,shutting down, so i formatted it and added new songs and now its stable ie... it switches off in a second after i switch it on...is...


I suggest you update the firmware of the player. The update available at Memorex web site:


http://www.memorex.com/en-us/Discontinued-Products/Portable-Electronics/MP3/Digital-Audio-Player-with-1GB-Memory--Color-Display/support/


If that does not work, it may be a problem with the player itself. This product has a 90 day warranty and you can call Memorex Product Support at 1-877-363-6673 between noon and 9pm EST if the unit is under warranty.

When I turn my player on it says boot error, shutting down I have songs on it and have been using it for five months. This is a new problem. Memorex mmp8567


Memorex=3M. Like the video tapes, it's guaranteed for life. There's probably nothing you can do yourself if it uses MTP as opposed to UMS, otherwise you could just format it on your PC and start over.

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!!

Charging the battery by the computer


Reformat the player - the instructions are in your user's manual, which can also be obtained off the internet at: http://www.memorexelectronics.com/html/product_detail.php?PID=650#

If that fails, get the firmware upgrade from the above-mentioned website
