    I could not install the device repair driver as it was not compatible with Windows LOGO.. This is our 3rd Philips MP3 player and it is a piece of junk! Lots of ongoing problems. They sent us a free one and it is bad too! BEWARE!!!!!

Not sure why this happens, but you could try repairing the player with the Philips Device Manager from the product CD.

Run Philips Device Manager, then press and hold [VOL+] whilst plugging into the PC.

Device Manager should show the device connected in repair mode. Follow the on-screen prompts.

This will format the player and re-load the firmware.

When you have disconnected the player, swithc it back on. It will show "initializing" briefly, then shut down.

Re-start the player. It should show "updating" and then go to the main menu screen.

Update will not complete


Just a stab in the dark: unplug the player for about 30 seconds, re-insert the plug and turn on, and see if that works for you. As I recall, the update involved creating a CD (or was it a DVD) with the updating firmware, and inserting that in the player and re-starting (but holding down any "magic" key combination?? So long ago that I really forget).

Blueant s4 stuck in DFU mode, does nothing, hung up while in the middle of upgrade firmware from 1.5 t 1.6 need the software to re flash it


I know this link is old but the same problem happened today to my new device a s4
I tried to update the device and the update program stopped halfway through.I tried this several times and each
time after the program stopped dead halfway through I pressed the cancel button and followed onscreen prompts,
I then noticed that the device would not respond and was just a dead piece of kit.It seems that it was still in
DFU mode(update mode)and needed the software to install an update to get it to work again.
It seems that the problem could be how the device reacts to the type of motherboard I have on my PC.BluAnt mention
issues with ASUS boards on their site wioth another device.
at the office. So after dozens of tries to get the s4 to update using the downloaded updater from Blueant,
I went into Windows Explorer and found the directory 'BluAnt Universal Updater' I copied the directory to my
memory stick and then took it home. On my PC at home I copied over the BAUU directory. Downloaded and ran the updater program
....and.....it installed the update within a couple of minutes. It seems that the update program downloads the update to a
directory within the BAUU directory and also places a 'Backup' directory there from your device, so if a problem occurs you can
tell the updater program to update from a file on your hard drive.Please pass this 'fix' on.

Avatar will not play on my BDP-S300 Sony blu ray. Any recommendations on how to fix this?


I recommend you go to the Sony website and find if there are any updates for your blu ray player. If there are they will have you download the update, unzip the download to a new file, copy the file to your DVD burner, and install the DVD Update into your player, press "play" OK a couple of things and shazam! Updated! That is unless your lens just needed cleaned, Good Luck.

My computer cannot read my V200


My MuVo was having problems until I installed the latest firmware. The last firmware release was in August 2006. If you haven't updated the player's firmware since then, try downloading it and installing Creative MuVo V200 Firmware 1.13.03.

If you can't get your computer to even recognize the player anymore, you could try reinstalling the Creative Mass Storage Driver 1.07.00.250.

Other downloads for the Creative MuVo V200 are located here.
