Memorex mmp8565 wont turn on after firmware update

Ok so heres the deal, i let my cousin borrow my memorex mmp8565 MP3 player, and he for some reason decided the firmware needed to be updated. so he updated it, and now it will not turn on. i called memorex and they said i have to send it in and pay 30 bucks to fix it. i bought it for 45! when i plug it in, my computer reads it as like STMP 3600. i have the firmware updater on the computer, but when i go into it, it says it found a device in recovery mode, then i get an error. do i need to replace it, or is there something im not doing right?

Just a thought, is it possibly locked?
There is a button on the side with a symbol that looks like a padlock.

My memorex MMP8565 MP3 player will not boot. I have tried reset and charging but it will not come on.


HI. This unit has internal memory(1gb) that can become unstable, thus, causing start up issues. With that said; This will most likely be a dead cell(battery). I would replace the battery with a new one if it is over 1 years old. This lithium cell may be defective. Once you have purchased a new battery, be sure to charge it fully before using the player. It takes three whole hours to set a newly purchased lithium cell. Once that is done, power up the player and update your firmware. Use the steps below to update properly:

1. Download the updated firmware at www.memorexelectronics.com.

2. Unzip the file, then double click setup.exe in the Desktop folder to install the software to your computer.

3. Connect the player to the computer using the supplied USB cable and the installation screen will appear. (If the installation screen does not appear, unplug the USB cable and turn off the unit). Connect to the computer again and press and hold the Power On/Off/Stop button until the installation screen appears.

4. Follow the on-screen instructions to install the driver.

5. When finished, click START and locate the newly installed software “Deco” andselect “Firmware Download”.

Now, after the update, you will need to reformat the player. Use the steps below to achieve this:

1. Use the USB cable to connect the player and the computer.

2. Double click on My Computer, then right click "MPT Player", "MMP8565"or "Removable Disk" and left click on"Format".

3a. For "MPT Player" or "MMP8565", at the "Format" window, click OK to confirm and the player will start to format . When
finished, click "OK" to close the Format window.

3b. For "Removable Disk", at the "Format" window, select "FAT 32" from the file system pull-down menu, then click "Start" to format the unit

  • NOTE: Make sure you have selected "FAT 32" at the file system pull down menu; otherwise, after formatting, the player will not work properly.Then, click OK to confirm and the player will start to format. When finished, click "Close" to close the Format window.

  • NOTE; If for some reason you cannot update your firmware, you will need to reformat the player first, then, update the firmware after the reformatting process.

Memorex mp3 player starts up, but freezes when FM is selected.


Once the unit freezes up what you can do is put a paper clip into the tiny hole located on the unit. This will reset the the player and then try to use it again. You can check the Memorex web site to see if there is firmware update for that unit so you can upgrade it. This might also help the player to stop freezing up.

Flashed to an official firmware Memorex MMP8565 - and it died...


Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard

Boot Error, Shutting Down


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.

Media player wont show files.


You all are not all having the same issue at all. The vast majority of you have loaded songs that are the wrong format into the player, which is why they aren't recognized once you disconnect from the PC. You should convert them to Mp3 format to avoid having this problem in the future.
