Samsung stick Mp3 player

Hi.............I`m having the same problem too I have 512 S1 Mp3 player Samsung Stick, I have also formated, in the hope of clearing out a VBS/Saraci virus that came with the Mp3 player




There seems to be little or no information regarding how to reset the player or even too re-fresh the software/firmware.

The translated user manual is crap, there is a remote upgrade program on the disk, but cannot locate some file called DogRUClt.dll, and the other tool: MP3 Player product tool V3.3 seems to be as useless as a chocolate fire guard.

It seems were stuck till we find the link to an upgrade site

Firmware?

Are we the only two who have formatted with disasterous effect
My MP3 player is a Samsung stick! no model or serial number although does say MusicStick on the front. If I try to update the firmware using supplied software, the device is not detected and switches off..........then switches back on, after deleting the warning?
Although I say my device is on.........every pixel is on! therefore it appears to be a dark blue/black screen.
Apart from maybe having damaged 30 of MP3 player, and buying a new one, has anyone got any ideas as to where one might be able to find a suitable firmware installer to get this stick up and running again ?

Four !!

Got mine this morning, broke it by lunch!!!!!!

Same problem, found with mine that when I unplug it from the PC, it stays on for a shot time. If while it is still on I press + Volume button it starts to record.....
Cant do anything else... O and the hold button now works back-to-front....

But no other buttons work.

I'm sure we should be able to re-program them ....

Telephoned samsung UK!

Eagle..Hi

I telephoned the UK Samsung offices recently, who advised me to contact Samsung USA? as they would be the ones who would actually produce the chips!!

However, Ive been advised, that without any model number, or name, its gonna be difficult to fix. further investigation, does show that
mine does have a serial number under a BAR Code which reads......J/H:ON512200488 and its says MusicStick on the bottom of the facia.
But still no joy todate. Looks like might have to buy another

If you guys bought your players recently, there should be a warranty still pendig. Read the manual carefully, and if it contains that "..can be formatted" or "Formattable", just bring the gadget back to the store, and they MUST replace/repair it, no cost. If it's not, then...well... Phone tech support.
I have a Fujitsu-Siemens MemoryBird 256MB, and the manual contains, that it CAN be formatted, just like regular HDDs. Never tried it though, but there is warranty for this in this case, if i **** something

Dont Do It?

At least yours has a Brand name ? Mine says "Japan technology" on the side next to a small 512 indication, and says MusicStick on the front, and is sold as a Samsung memory stick.
My son bought the same stick which came with a VBS/Saraci VIRUS installed.....how cute!! That has been sent back, after we formatted that one to. The seller has asked for it back for investigation,(still waiting for replacement) however, I lost the ability to use mine by trying to copy one to another. seems I uploaded nothing to my MP3 player which has left it useless..Might just have to buy another, put it down to carelessness ? Of the 3 that I bought, only one is still working.the 256Mb.....wont be formatting that one?
That aside.I can still format (FAT) and read write to the stick when its connected to USB, as Drive F: but cant switch the player on when in the hand? Also when in the USB port.the Display is Black, as all pixels are illuminated, so cant read anything?

Please if anyone can help i'd be so greatful!
IS there no way we could copy the firmware of another similar MP3 Player onto our broken ones...
As you can see my knowledge of firmware is pretty poor...
thanks,
Ryan

P.S. How many people here bought their MP3s off Ebay?

Whoaa matey.thats how I broke one of mine? Thought I`d be able to copy one to the other, using installer on CDROM.........................I must know even less than you about firmware copying!!!!
I bought 3 from ebay.A 256mb still working, and 2 X 512mb, One of which had a virus detected when connected to a Windows ME installation, and the other broke trying to copy, but a great idea, if someone can do us a program to install, with simple ENGLISH instructions? I`m gonna take a digital pic of my actual player and get it on this site soon? but is very similar to the attachment I`ve already provided.

Chas
