Here's the story: I had 102 audio files and 1 text file on this player when suddenly, without any warning, I turn it on and it displays a message saying: "*No files*". When I try to look at it on my computer a box pops up saying "J:/ is not acccesible. The request could not be performed because of an I/O device error." What the heck??
Help! Do I have a virus? Is it just a crappy mp3 player that isn't worth 20 bucks? Is it safe to plug it into my computer? Can I get my files back? Do ipods do this too? And, What is an I/O device error?
Download the current firmware version from the mach speed website http://www.machspeed.com/tech/firmupdate.html (you should be upgrading to version 011.620.130). I had to install it 4 (four) times before it finally took. The only way I could make it work was by checking the "Format Data Area" box. Unfortunately, this causes you to lose all info stored on (in?) it. You'll know that it took because a dialog box will open telling you that the player has been reset, and that you need to disconnect it so it can restart.
Got a solution--at least a temporary one. Try plugging it into your computer's USB port and seeing what drive letter is assigned to it--on mine it's G:. Then open up the "Run" tab under your start menu and type "format G:" Once it's formatted, it will take files again. The only trick is, they'll probably go away if the battery runs down again.
Mine wouldn't even turn on when the drive was unformatted, but once it was formatted, it worked again on battery power.

Check the specification of your MP3 player to determine thetype of video file format it uses.Most common video files that MP3 players use are, AVI andWMV, there may be others such as FLV, MOV and DivX.If your player cannot play a video then it is anincompatible video file format, then you need to convert that video file to aformat that your MP3 player uses. After video conversion then copy the videofiles to your MP3 player using the USB cable from your computer.Click on this link for instructions on converting videofiles for MP3 players :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r5874192-play_videos_mp3_player

Hi, it wont be a problem its just giving you that warning as the device is not on any list to say its safe, so your computer gives you a warning as its something it has never heard of, you will have no problems using it it happens quite a lot when you buy devices that are not from well known makers. so just run the disk and click ignore the warning and it will then load as normal and it will then let you access all the info on the mp3 player.
have you tried connecting the mp3 player without the disk installed just to see if you can access the files without having the disk installed. your computer may pick it up and let you put music on without the disk, it might be a bit harder and take a few goes to get right or just use the disk and do it the way it says in the manual
using the disk will not harm your computer or your files, if it was something you was downloading or a disk someone had copied for you then i would say dont use it but as its the original disk you will have no problems and you can then use your mp3 player
make sure the drivers for your mp3 player are installed on the computer b4 plugging in your mp3 player find the drivers on google type in your mp3 player brand and go to there website and find the drivers
so your looking for the audio book ok u get into your menu on the mp3 player and go to audio books then if your on the comp then you push open folder to view files
then it should be under data or watever u named it use the f3search when its ont eh computer
