  • FAQ :

Can I use a Mac OS X system to prepare the contents of my SD card?

You can either prepare your content on MAC OS X, Windows or Linux. All these systems are fully supports the FAT32. However when using a Mac OS, thecopying of files create a number of hidden system (. DS_Store, etc.) files. These files can interfere with the proper operation of your player. This is why it is highly recommended to remove them. Many utilities for Mac lets you remove these unwanted system files such as: Hidden Cleaner, CleanUp smb mess, DS_StoreCleaner or Onyx.

The WAV file I created with Protools makes an odd noise each time it starts up.

WAV files created with Protools as well as with certain types of audio software are not standard WAV files. These are WAV Broadcast files which contain ‘metadata’ as well as the standard audio data. The player plays the ‘metadata’ zones in the same way as the audio data, which causes an odd noise at the start of the file reading. To resolve this problem, you can make your WAV files conform by taking out all ‘metadata’ so that only audio data useful to the player is kept. If you do not possess the necessary audio editor to carry out this operation, you can make a copy of your audio file using the software Audacity. This software is under a GPL licence and is free to use whatever your operating system (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux)

I’m using a USB stick with a number of very large audio files. How can I improve the start up time of my player?

During start up, the MicroPlayer mkII carries out an automatic listing of all the files present on your media support. If the number of files present in each folder is large, this operation can take considerable time. Owing to the technology integrated in MicroPlayer mkII, using an SD or SDHC card is preferable. Start up time will be 4 times faster with a high-performance SD/SDHC card.

I have put a number of large files in the same folder but not all of them seem to have been read. Why?

The number of files accepted by MicroPlayer mkII in the same folder is limited to 999.

I don't know how my file is encoded. Which software can i use to know precisely which are the caracteristics of my file? (format, type, encoding, bitrate...)

If you have not any software for this, you can use MediaInfo software (http://mediaarea.net/fr/MediaInfo). This software, provided under BSD license, is free and opensource on all operating system (Windows, Mac OS X or Linux).

I have properly named "000" the autoplay folder, but the player reads the folder just one time, what is the problem?

By default, the folders are not played in loop. The condition to play a folder in loop depend to the add of a specific parameter in the name of the folder. This parameter is a jump function, done when the folder is fully played. To play your folder in loop, please, rename the autoplay folder from "000" to "000 [J000]". For more informations on the folders parameters, please, refer to your owner's manual.

I have created a text files "config.txt" and/or "serial.txt" as specified into the manual, but the player does not include instructions that i put in the configuration file. Why?

Make sure that the "config.txt" and "serial.txt" files are generate with a basic text editor like the "Notepad" of Microsoft Windows. Otherwise, your text editor needs to create a "ANSI" file, 100% ASCII. "DOC", "RTF", ""UTF-8", "UTF16", "UNICODE" or other format of text file are exclude.
