Default Mp4 player not 16gb from China


I picked up a MP4 off ebay that was sold as a 16gb model. When I load it up with the files it crashes around 8GB. When I plug it into my vista computer it says that it needs to be formatted and the windows disk management shows it to be around 8 gig. I can only put files on it using it on my XP laptop. The unit restarts using the small reset hole when it locks up. So how do I correct the format size. I looked at the MP3 player utilities version 4 and I don't think it reconizes the mp3 player. Can I use windows vista to do the format and what type of format will it do? I understand vista doesn't do fat32 formating.

Hi madhampster,

Unfortunately it seems you have a hacked player and that explains the crashing after 8GB.

Try formatting in XP firstly as NTFS. It should work fine in NTFS. Only the older players need to be in FAT32. Try that and see if that works and helps solve the problem with the crashing. It should hopefully also remove the 16GB and show the true 8GB size.

By the way, WHO did you buy it from? Do you have an auction link? It would be good to put that person as a BAD SELLER to let others know as well.

Look at HOW TO REMOVE MEMORY HACK thread if you have Actions player.

The sellers name is i.c.distribution

They have sold a lot of items on ebay. The new problem with unit now is that only a couple of the icons are responding now. I was wondering if the firmware is corrupted.

Hi madhampster,

Try FORMATTING your player and see if that helps. Sometimes the hacked memory in a player can cause you all 'weird' problems. Formatting it should wipe out the hack and it may fix your problems.

Let me know if that helps.
