    The unzipped file is an application, still not anything I can post to this forum.

You have to open the zip file on the computer itself (using WinZip or some other unzipper), and extract the individual files that are contained within the zip file. The zip file is sort of like a container that holds other files.

I put some files on my mp3 player. when i go to play them it says format error. however, that isn't my major problem. now my computer keeps telling me to format my mp3, which will wipe my entire memory,...


Hello,

Files on the MP610 could be in the wrong format or corrupt. For the correct format look in the manual on page 40:
  • cobyusa.com/files/manuals/MP610_MN.pdf

And there's a firmware update for this issue for the MP610, see next site:
  • cobyusa.com/?p=prod&prod_num_id=212&pcat_id=1001

For the update look under Downloads and select the zip file MP610_firmware_update.zip:
1. Right click "...update.zip"
2. Save Target As... to save the file to a location on your computer
3. Unzip the zip file: an instruction for how to update the LCD firmware
is included in a pdf file.

Hope this solves your problem. Just post a comment in this thread, when needing more help.

How can i get my coby mp-610 stop saying file system error???


View MP-610:
http://www.cobyusa.com/?p=prod&prod_num_id=212&pcat_id=1001

Manual:
http://www.cobyusa.com/files/manuals/MP610_MN.pdf
Quick setup guide:
http://www.cobyusa.com/files/setupguide/MP610_SG.pdf

File system error refers to incomplete startup often due to low battery, faulty firmware or not matching files in the player.

When the startup failed try point 1.Resetting and 2.Charging:

1. Try to reset using the reset button hole on the backside (8).
299c492.jpg 2. Make a connection with the computer and have the device charging for a long period, full load needs 8 hours. Make connection directly to the USB of the computer preferred at the backside of the computer.
When using a laptop see to it that the USB is powered: laptops often switch the USB off going to sleep op hibernate mode.

When this didn't solve the problem, perform a format and reinstall of the firmware, point 4 - 8:
4. Connect the player to the computer and backup your data to the computer using the Windows explorer: copy MUSIC, MOVIE, PHOTO and TEXT directory to a location on the computer.
5. Format the removable disc of the player in Windows explorer.
Check your removable disk having its full memory capacity free after format.
6. Download the firmware for the player: firmware download for MP-610 ( zip file ):
http://www.cobyusa.com/files/software/MP610_Firmware.zip
7. Unzip the file: once unzipped there's a pdf instruction added in the zip file how to perform the firmware update.

8. After the firmware reinstallation the player is ready for transferring
data again. Remember the requirements for the format of files that is put on the player.

How do i update the firmware for the VP8870? Ive already downloaded the zip file. All my video files suddenly disappeared! Anyone know why?


While performing firmware update all data will be erased !
See the manual on page 36:
Vosonic VP8870 manual

The firmware update for the player is PMP.VP8870-1.0.0.B2.mtg :
Since you've downloaded the zip file, were you able to unpack it with
Winzip op Winrar ?
When using XP you can unpack by:
1. [Right click on the zip file] Open with > Compressed maps [left click on Compressed maps]
2. The next screen shows the opened zip file. On the left side the
folder task manager can be opened ( Folders / Maps in the top bar not selected): "Unzip all files" : follow up the Windows unzip wizard and
remember the location of the files.

How to do the firmware update is explained in the pdf file "How to update 1.0.0-B2 - VP8870 .pdf", added to the firmware update in the
zip file.
Remember:
While performing firmware update all data will be erased !

You must use the native software - still available on rio's website. No other transfer method will work with this player.

Siren MP3 Player switch on / off problem


An email to Siren support suggested a hardware failure... then suggested I return the unit to place of sale. As my warranty was out I decided to open it up.
Not suggesting as a viable solution - worked for me.
Pull the battery cover and battery. Two teeny screws - a couple of pry-points next the to screw holes. Carefully lever the covers apart.
Once apart I put the battery back in place. Unit fired right up.
Kept working after re-assembly.
So far so good.
Good luck.

Not working


I had the same problem.
Do the following and the player will SURELY work.

Download this .zip file:
http://www.transcend.nl/support/dlcenter/Driver/TS840V1.61_1009.zip

Extract the file and read the firmware update manual.

Next run the TS840_V1_61.exe file and follow the instructions.
When it tells you to insert the player, press the decrease volume button while inserting it into the computer.

After some time, the firmware update will be complete. Now add the files you want to play.

This also works for people who do not have specific sections of the player working. (i.e.) players in which only the photo and video part does not work, etc.

CAUTION : If you follow these steps, your MP3 player will be restored to their original quality. This is a foolproof, sureshot method of restoring the player. But all your files will be deleted. So take a backup and then proceed.

Thank you.
