Question about BUSlink MP3-SK512 (512 MB) MP3 Player

2 Answers

My BUSlink MP3 player is flashing "Hello"

Never dropped it or anything, but now when I turn it on it just flashes "Hello" and keeps going like that until I take the battery out. When I plugged it into my computer, it showed up but I couldn't over it because of an I/O device error. What should I do? Just toss it or is there some sort of way to fix this? Thanks!

    I'm having the same problem as Linda. I've followed the 2 suggestions offered but neither of them helped - in fact the Micrsoft Troubleshoot application pretty much told me to go find help elsewhere - go figure! I tried reinstalling the drivers and that seemed to help until I unplugged the device and then went to turn it on. It began to flash the Hello again. So here I am, with the MP3 blues... Please, if anyone has any other suggestions...

Hi I had the same problem. Buslink had me remove the battery, and use the disk that came with it to reload the software. Buslink can send you all the info, but check to make sure that you use the FAT table files in the download ( read the file on the disk ).

Have you checked the battery voltage? make sure its in the original capacity. Go to Control panel>Performance and maintenance> System> Hardware> Device manager> Universal Serial Bus Controller, click on the + sign to see the list of installed devices. If your player is connected, it should be listed there with a yellow flag (the yellow flag indicates that although the connection is there, it is not working properly). Right click on it>Properties>Troubleshoot. See if the troubleshooter can help. And you can format it there.

My sansa will turn on but it will just stay on the sandisk logo and keep repeating that and i cant get to the main menu or anything what should i do


the software of your player is corrupt. It must have gotten a virus from either your PC or any other that it was inserted into. This is why the player cannot load even when it try's to.

Your player needs to be flashed, that is, the software needs to be reinstalled.

This can be done by experts that specializes on mp3 software installation.

Take care

My BUSlink MP3-SK256 MP3 only show me the "hello" word and no more, that is all. How can I fix it?

Do the following to reset the firmware. Once the firmware is reset, everything should be back to normal.
1. Install the application from the mini disc that came with the MP3 player - which can also be downloaded from Run the "Setup.exe" file.
2. After it's installed. Connect the MP3 player to your computer. Make sure there's no battery attached to the unit. Wait until it's fully connected, and then run the software ( Go to PROGRAMS and look for "SigmaTel MSCN Audio Player". Run the Firmware Download. The software will automatically search for the unit. )
3. Make sure the "Format Data Area" option is checked (Warning: all files are going to be erased). Hit the "Start" button. The firmware will be reset, and the MP3 player should be back to normal.

Phillips pss110/05

hello, i found the original cd that came with the mp3 player, uninstalled musicmatch and pss device manager, disconnected from the internet and reinstalled everything on the disc. i then reformatted the device and had to go into settings on the portable device option in musicmatch and selected pss 110 rather than flash. the device works now although i had to select the 'add' from portable device rather than sending to it from musicmatch jukebox.
hopen it works for you. you may have to keep selecting the pss option as it seemed to re-set itself as a flash device a few times. john

OK this is an "Internal" problem and it must be returned to the supplier/manufacturer for repair/replacement. I have seen this countless times B4.
