Question about Philips SA4010 MP3 Player

1 Answer

Philips SA4010 1 gig really only half a gig!

Well it does have a gig of space, but half of the hard drive is reserved for the recording. I tried deleting the VOICE folder, but it still only allows you half a gig of space. I also tried putting mp3s in the VOICE folder, but they won't play. Is there anyway to work around this?

    I cannot use the software because I'm on a Mac, but I found out how to use disk utility and give it only one partition instead of two. I'll give your answer a "FixYa!" rating anyway, because I'll bet your solution would work.

1 Gb player should have around 894Mb or more of free space. The rest is taken up by the directory and firmware files.

Try running the Device Manager software on the product CD and use the repair option.

Video stream is jumpy .Download and burn movies that freeze up

How much free hard drive space and memory is in the laptop? Are you running anything else while the burn occurs? Have you tried a slower burn speed? DVDs hold more than 4 gigs of data. In addition to burning the video to the disk, the files are being encoded. There is really no practical way to speed this up. Make sure youre not running any memory intensive programs during the burn. 256 megs of memory is feasible, 512 megs or more would be better. Hard drive space--you must have free space on your drive at least double the size of the files youre burning.

Cannot partition the c drive

3rd party software like Partition Magic might do it, it's good but not free. However, if you google "best partition software" you might get some good free alternatives. In the worst case a fresh windows installation required. No, that's the second worst case, i think it doesn't aply but in the very worst case you need to wipe your HD totally clean with Boot and Nuke, at least not with the windows, free=ing some space the factory set's aside for recovery purposes. However, this method is drastically, only aply when 100% sure, plus the reserved space can never be that much. A partition tool MIGHT do the job but it sounds like it has some deeper root of the problem. Try google it and hope some1 recognize it (and probably had the same problem or a big brain). Sry i couln't help you more.

Hard drive keeps losing space lol

Are you surfing the internet a lot?  You may be getting a lot of temporary files.  Here is something to try.  In internet explorer go to tools / internet options / delete cookies, delete files (all offline contect) and clear history.  This should help some.  You are always going to go down in space.  Windows updates automatically on a regular basis.  This will cause a decrease in available hard drive space.
