But im pretty sure if i just replace the core files that come on it it should work again. so im wondering if anyone has those files and could copy those files for me and send them as an attachement to my email address. The files are
Copying this files from another player will not help you.
- MTABLE.SYS is the on-board database. The player actually builds this from scratch the 1st time you boot-up & ‘refreshes’ it when you add or delete files.
- RES_INFO.SYS is the ‘personal identification’ of your particular player.
- SYS_CONF.SYS is the settings (volume, back-light time-out, 12 vs. 24 Hr time, etc.) Again this will not help you from somebody else’s player.
- VIDEO_BM.SYS - Not exactly sure about this as I don’t get involved with videos, but I would assume that it also is a system file to remember video settings or what videos are on the player.
All these files are self-generating. They cannot simply be copied & pasted from another player.
Sound like you may have corrupted files and/or corrupted firmware. You need to manually install firmware either in Recovery Mode (if v1) or ‘forced’ MSC mode (if v2) and probably run ChkDsk and format the device to get rid of all the bugs and start over loading everything back onto it.
