First Gen Dell DJ 20 Gig "File Cannot Be Written" Transfer Issue

Because I use Yahoo Music Jukebox I cannot transfer tracks directly to my Dell DJ any longer because Yahoo does not support my first gen Dell DJ. I have had to go back to using the Dell DJ Explorer software to transfer songs and playlists to my Dell DJ (which is fine). I've been doing this for about 6 months when all of a sudden yesterday I went to transfer a new mp3 file to the music library and I got an error message on my computer screen that states "file cannot be written". I tried to reset my Dell DJ with a paperclip in the side and all it did was wipe out the Dell DJ music library. I'm very frustrated and do not know what to do. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. You guys are the best!

Yahoo jukebox was bought out by Rhapsody. I had the same problem and their only solution was for me to buy a Rhapsody subscription. I know this is not the solution you want to hear but that seems to be the only way to keep any music that was stored using the yahoo jukebox.

My computer does not recognize that my dell dj is plugged in when using yahoo music jukebox. When I try to transfer music from the computer to the dj, it tells me "no device connected".

Found here-

FINALLY, after all that, it did in fact connect, and load the firmware successfully."

I can confirm this does work mine is now working perfectly!!

Dell jukebox not working, want to transfer music


Mine has also ceased to charge. For awhile it would charge if I manipulated the charging plug in the socket but now doesn't respond to anything. It does make a nice paper weight now. I suspect mine has a bad connection in the charging circuit somewhere, perhaps just the socket has gone bad. Who knows? --- GB

Cannot get my computer to recognize my Dell Jukebox


Assuming that you don't have windows vista, you can load the Dell DJ Explorer program that came with your DJ. It comes up as a regular looking window that should "see" your DJ when you plug it in. If it doesn't, where it says "not connected", right click and then click refresh. Sometimes it works better to plug in the DJ first, then load dj explorer. When it sees it, "not connected" should change to the name of your DJ. Double click that and it should then 'read' your dj, showing all the files on it. Then its just a tedious amount of copy and paste to another folder on your computer (like your My Music folder), and your music is restored to your computer. Take care, as DJ Explorer can also delete files from your DJ if you tell it to.
If you no longer have the DJ drivers and DJ Explorer and Musicmatch loaded on your computer, you can still download that stuff from the Dell site.
If you Do have Vista, try to find a friend with XP. Load the DJ explorer software on their computer, and pull your music off the dj to your friend's computer, then use a USB drive or something to move it to yours. Or better yet, upgrade your computer from VIsta to Xp (yes, I said upgrade - Vista is ****)

No license to play track


That means you will have to sync your devicce in oder to play the songs on the device..what you will have to do is to transfer one new track that you download to your device...then once you finish transfer it the tracks, it should update every single tracks on the device...if that doesnt solve the problem you are having..what you will have to do is to format the player using windows media player then once you format it transfer the tracks over and the should be playing...
Hope that helps
Thank You

Dell DJ Gen 2 Won't connect


if your Dell DJ player is no longer recognized by the upgrade firmware even with the correct, original device driver installed, then you will need to install a windows 'MTP' driver by doing the following. Note that this applies to Windows XP only.

1. make sure you have the SP2 XP upgrade.

2. Install Windows Media Player 10 or roll it back to version 10 if you are using a later version. You can roll it back by going to 'Add or Remove programs' and uninstalling any WMP upgrade from the 'Change or Remove Programs' dialog window. Note: don't uninstall WMP enitrely from the 'Add/remove windows components' dialog.

3. Go get this file: fixup.zip Unzip it in a temporary directory and run the fixup.cmd by double-clicking in explorer or using the windows 'Run' command. Follow the instructions it prints in its DOS window about deleting the Dell device in the hardware manager.

4. plug your DJ player into the USB port. XP should now say 'Found MTP device' or something similar.

5. Get the Dell DJ 1.02 firmware from their support site appropriate for your player. Run the firmware upgrade. The software should detect your player this time.

A good reference for the Dell DJ stuff is here: gotzune.com

Note: I can't personally recommend the 'PlayForSure' firmware as I have not been successful upgrading to it. WMP 11 does not seem to work with the Dell DJ but WMP10 does and the device Sync function works just fine.

For almost ALL of the MP3 players out there that seem bricked due to a firmware upgrade failure or some other reason, they can be usually restored in a simlar way by installing a basic 'MTP' driver which allows windows to at least send a file to it, and by putting the player into a recovery mode as defined by the manufacturer.
