Re: mp3 player doesn't work
According to panasonic only the SC-EN27 out of this series can play mp3's.
It looks just like the SC-EN25 you posted on its page.
In case you have the 27, this is what the manual has to say:
? You may not be able to play MP3 if you have copied
a multi-session disc that has no data between
? When creating a multi session disc, it is necessary
to close the session.
? The amount of data on the disc is too small. Set the
amount of data to greater than approximately 5 MB.
Hope you work it out. If you want you should be able to connect it to an external mp3 player.

Please ensure that you copy the MP3 Files back to your device after you format it.
When you are done copying the files, restart the MP3 Player and check if the files are being read.
If the files are not being read , then connect your Mp3 player to your computer and change the format mode while you format the device and then again load the mp3 files and then restart the player to check if the files are detected.
To clarify , if you formatted your device using a NTSC format earlier , check formatting it in the fat32 mode and see if it works find after copying the files to the player.
Hope that helps ...:) In case you have any queries, feel free to contact me.
In order to see and read pdf's on mp3 players it must support a pdf reader. I must be put in the correct folder and the the pdf version (of the ebook) can't be newer than the pdf reader else it won't read it. Coby doesn't like pdf format as one that is automatically read by the player.
To resolve this issue, try one or all of the following:
Wave® music system is designed to play commercial CDs, CD-Rs,
MP3-encoded CDS and CD-RWs. If your system has trouble playing MP3 CDs,
make sure the discs were recorded with compatible formats. See Cannot play MP3 CDs
The system may not be able to play certain CD-RW discs. Playability
is dependant on how the disc was recorded, including the format it was
recorded in and the actual disc used for recording. Note: iTunes
defaults to AAC as the encoding format. In order to use iTunes to make
CDs that will play on the Wave® music system, you’ll need to change the
format to MP3 How to Choose Import Options
Different brands of CD-Rs and CD-RWs use different materials which
may affect the ability of a player to read them. If you are burning
your own CD-Rs or CD-RWs, experiment with different brands of discs
If a commercial disc won’t play, check for scratches, fingerprints
or other physical damage. Try the CD in another player. If it still
won’t play, there may be a problem with the disc
Reset the system by disconnecting the power cord from the wall for one minute, then plug the system back in
Hi I can see the icons for music, radio,
microphone etc. but there is not text to read what is going on. When I
hook it up to the computer, there is not text on the mp3
player, only a white screen. I would like to format the player, but it
does not show up in "My Computer" I tried removing the battery for
hours, someone suggested that hold the menu button down for 30 seconds
but it still does not work. Any thoughts? Thanks
A few suggestions:
1] I’ve tried using a 1GB sd card in the MMP3642A with no success. Interestingly, I can transfer files to the 1GB card when it is in the MMP3642A, but when I turn on the player to listen to the files, I get the sigmatel formatter error message. I tried running the sigmatel formatter, but it doesn’t understand the 1GB size. Apparently whoever programmed this braindead formatter program only programmed it for up to 512MB sd cards. Interestingly, I tried flashing this player with the MMP8500 firmware, and then the player does play files off of the 1GB sd card, but the LCD is mostly cutoff and only 25% of the LCD shows up. So it seems the only obstacle to using a 1GB sd card is this stupid formatter program. I tried formatting the sdcard to fat16 instead of Fat32, but that did not help
2] If you want to use a card with more than 64MB, you need to use the CD that was with the player. DO NOT USE AUTORUN! Explore the disc, go into the "products" folder, run the stusbmscformat.exeapplication. It will show a the drive letter for the player, click the arrow and select the next drive letter down, then press start. This worked for me, I hope it will be useful. Why memorex doesn’t address this issue is beyond me.
3] How do I correct the error: Reformat external media with sigmatel formatter? If you have installed the software disc that you received with your MP3 player, you will need to follow these instructions; -- From your computer, click 'START' -- then 'PROGRAMS' -- then 'MEMOREX' -- then 'FORMAT' -- choose the 2nd drive If this doesn't correct your error, you will need to return the memory card to the retailer for an exchange. connect your memorex mp3 player , then turn it on and click start .....i did the same and its working now.
It's .wav format. However if you burn your MP3s as an audio disc (not an MP3 disc) with a program like Nero or Roxio Easy DVD Suite, then it will automatically convert them to .wav and burn them to CD and it will work with your CD player straight off.
the best thing to do is RE format the disc. i am currently having the same problem , witch i am tired of fixing them. if the item is from ebay : hong kong , i suggest you tell the buyer and complain. people will do anything for good feedback. saw formatting it will work. but you'll have the same problem in the future. either you copy all your music files to a folder. or buy one from Argos , woolworths etc etc...
