LOGIK mp3-player 256MB formatting gone bad

by Cherber / January 27, 2006 11:44 AM PST

Hi! I accidently formatted my mp3-player using "SigmaTel MSCN Audio Player" and now it doesn't even switch on. The LCD screen is off. Plugging it into the PC via USB doesn't have any effect because the PC can't even detect it. I don't know what to do. It was the appropriate software for my mp3-player and now I got nothing. Is there anyway to reboot the player trough any kind of button or switch. I tried putting brand new batteries in and no change.

Logik MP3-Player 128BM, 256MB, 512MB Formatting

Don't worry!
I had the same issue Yesterday and after some steps the problem has been solved.

If you still have Firmware on CD, you got delivered with the MP3-Player, all what you have to do is put the CD in CD-Driver (you will get on monitor: LOGIK Software CD. WMA, MP3 Player)

Use 1st. View Manual in pdf-format.

You can print it, before starting to download the firmware version 3.199 (Setup Driver)

How to proceed to solve your problem, please go to page 12/13 Trouble shooting.

Follow step by step.

If you still have this problem, write a message, I can assist you on other way.

Good Luck.

Will download WMA files but will not play them at all
by dalmartron / July 8, 2006 4:53 PM PDT

I have just bought a Logik MP3 1GB MP3 player. It works perfectly for MP3 files.
I then downloaded some of my WMA files and they will not play at all. They were recorded at 128 KBps so I did some more at lower speed, down to 64 and 48 KBps and these will not play either.
Any ideas what I might be doing wrong?

logik mp3 256mb
by cnet_ravi / July 6, 2006 3:55 PM PDT

I had terrible probs with my player but when i took it back to the shop they said one reason for loading trax but them not playing could be the audio quality is too high on media player.
Goto win media player - tools - ooptions- copy music tab - find the audio quality and slide the marker down.
This sorted my prob hope it helps someone else.

I gave up!
by Cherber / March 5, 2006 3:28 AM PST

Thanks for all your replies, but I gave up and bought a new one. I still had the recipt for it and added a few coins and switched to a better one.

So the best advice I can give you is always hang on to your recipt.

Good luck to you all. Technology is a great thing when it works.

Logic mp3 player 512Mb firmware files 3.199 (3.000.199)
by shannontk / August 29, 2006 10:57 PM PDT
In reply to: Need Firmware

I too have corrupted firmware and no CD and can't find exactly the right version after a prolonged internet trawl. Does anyone have the firmware files for this player? I just need the following set of four files (I think): resource.bin, usbmsc.sb, stmpsys.sb and bootmanager.sb - the sb files can be opened in notepad and have the firmware versions at the top - I think two of them will be ver 3.000.199. I bought 2 identical players from Dixon's UK as Xmas presents for my nephews which did not have support CDs but I have aquired the Sigmatel firmware updater from other sources and hope to reflash the broken one to make one nephew as happy as his brother.

LOGIK MP3 player 256MB problems
by GAURAV2007_2008 / June 17, 2006 9:31 PM PDT

I have a near identical problem!
My mp3 player just went weird.... The screen started to flash and would not play unless i put it in my usb port. I have tried Their website but unfortunately it is only available in a language i don't understand.

Where did you get the software to re-format the player?

No-one i ask seems to know how to fix these problems have you had any replies that help??

Logik mp3 player is a bad idea!
by lindpatt / October 24, 2006 12:33 AM PDT

Many people I know had bought these all around Christmas time, and fully enough about 4 months later, hardly anyone had one.
The reason why, they all broke. Mine still plays but the mp3 player is broken.
My friend says she threw hers away because she coudln't get the mp3 player to come on, it flashes a couple of times and then goes off. Onother person said the buttons didn't work. And another person also said she coudln't upload any songs to it.
My problem is if you had a song for example called "black" it would show up as bbbllllllltttkkk@***32k
Not useful if you want to search for songs quickly.
My advice is try and get a refund or get a different make. So many people I knew got them, and found problems with it, and so did I!
