This error was formed as a result of downloading the files repeatedly on a same computer. Some time the Microsoft Website won't allow users to download the same file repeatedly. In that case, the best option is to try again after 4-5 hours. Its also shown in the error message "setup cannot continue because there was an error downloading files,please try again later.
Hi, First of all formate your MP3 player through built-in format option of the player, remember dont try to format it through PC. then by using software provided with the MP3 copy songs of your choice and past in your player with the help of software, also don't copy and paste directly from PC to MP3. This will solve your problem. Thanks for using fixya.
I had this problem twice, the player keeps displaying some pixels spreaded randomly on the screen when I press the play/pause button or when its connected to the pc, while Philips Device Manager keeps displaying the error:
"Buffer overrun detected! Program: ...hilips\SA21xx\Device Manage.exe A buffer overrun has been detected wich has corrupted the program's internal state. The program cannot safely continue execution and must now be terminated." (I have an old SA2115/02 device)
When I contacted Philips about this problem, they said to bring the device to them but it was out of service.
So I tried lots of repair/recvery programs and got to a point where I couldn't even format the player cause of the write-protected error. I was about to trash it when I tried this last method :
-I used an USB cable extender so I won't brake my PC's USB port
-I started Philips Device Manager
-I began pluggin/unpluggin the device repeatedly while Philips Device Manager was loading
-after the program loaded and recognized the player without giving me the error above, I left the device plugged
-I used the repair option, took a deep breath and waited until the operation was finished and voila!
Now I don't know if it will also work for you because I tried lots of rude methods wich I don't remember the exact order, like the first time I've repaired it, but it's worth trying.
If you have problems with the file system on your Gmini you can try to fix it using the DOS utility, check disk (chkdsk).
Do the following;
? Make sure external AC adapter is powering the Gmini.
? Quit all running applications.
? Properly connect the Gmini to your computer
? Wait patiently (up to 5 minutes) for Windows XP to show the local drive as mounted.
? Open a DOS window. Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt.
? At the prompt, type chkdsk e: /f. Use e: or f: or whatever drive letter is representing your Gmini. The /f argument tells the program to automatically fix errors.
? Be patient, this may take a while.
? When it is finished, exit the DOS Window and properly disconnect the Gmini from your computer.
Try using the device now and see if makes any difference. If not you could try formatting it using a DOS prompt.
I/O error *usually* means it can't access the device, rather than the data on the device (i.e. doesn't matter how its formatted)
It can be caused by poor media, or it's timing issue, etc.
I would try to restart the playr, and even reformat it.
