Question about Virgin Electronics VM-500 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Virgin VM-500 problems still

I have tried your solutions but am still having trouble. I think the problem is in where the songs are supposed to be downloaded to in the VM-500.

I have tried both WMP10 and Media Monkey and both report a succesful sync, but the VM-500 still reports "No songs found".

The drive on the VM-500 seems to work fine and I can view it in Windows Explorer. Can you tell me where the mp3 files are supposed to appear in the VM-500.

I've uploaded ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED on this rapidshare link, I format my player and bringit back to life with only this...
http://rapidshare.com/files/106001227/Player.rar.html

1.- unrar to the player
2.- try if it works, if not go to 2.1
2.1.- install the software, included in the rar file, then try if it works it should

IMPORTANT: when you have manage to make it work do this, it will save you a lot of time

1.- browse your player to the system/data folder and backup those files, if you get any future troubles (like no music found, strange characters instead of artist's list) replace those files with your backup, backup those files always after adding new music!!!

2.- save the rar file I've uploaded, if you have the wmp plugin already installed and you get the "Oh dear this hard disk doesn't work" message again, just format the player, and put every single file from the rar to the player

3.- excuse my english...

    music is stored in system/music however dragging music there will do nothing, it must be using wmp.
    the music list file is coded in the system/data files

Oh dear this hard drive is not working


To fix, you will need the following 2 links and Windows Media Player 10 (WMP 11 is not compatible with the VM-500)

http://a.b.vcdz.free.fr/vcdz/Virgin_Player_5gb_VM-500_setup.rar
http://a.b.vcdz.free.fr/vcdz/PP5020.MI4

The first link is a zip file2_bing.gif that contains the setup file for the VM-500 along with the user guide that explains how to resolve the "Oh dear! this player is a piece of junk" (okay, so I ad libbed). The 2nd link is for a critical file missing from the set up. The solution is basically 3 steps:
1) Plug in your VM-500 into your PC and right click to select "Properties" and then select "Format" to clear everything out of the device to start from scratch.
2) After downliading the zip file from the "setup" link above, unzip and run the setup.exe program on your PC. It will detect the VM-500, install the firmware and the system folder and subfolders.
3) Using the 2nd link above, download the file PP5050.mi4 to your PC and then copy it to the system folder (not the subfolders) in your VM-500.
That's it! Your VM-500 should be all fixed and should bring up the "device tour" tutorial. -Hank

How to load songs on to it?


If the player is MSD (Mass Storage Device) compatible, then a drive should show up in My Computer when you plug it in. Simply copy your songs to this location.

If the player is not MSD compatible, you must use the software that came with the player.
