Posted by inspectortech on May 21, 2009
Is this MP Player sold by lovehuangfeifei2008 really 8GB? No it is not. It is only 2GB. So how did a victim fix this MP Player?
See how Niko managed to restore the Fake MP Player sold by lovehuangfeifei2008 to it’s real 2GB size. The solution could help you repair your fake MP Player to it’s true size so you can use it.
Inside the MP Player looks like this:
Niko said about the larger chip:
The chip inside this player is a SAMSUNG 910 k9gag08uom it came up as 2GB when I looked it up. Seems like something is grayed out then pcb0 and below it on the chip reads ycb578dcc
Here is how Niko fixed the player:
The smaller chip AK1025 is 8I028AB 0II OR 81028AB 011, can’t make out if its a 1 or a I
Fixing this player wasn’t hard, honestly I would need another one to write step by step instructions on that.
Before finding H2TESTW 1.4 I found a Check Flash 1.09 I put it on a Write and Read test, full pattern set, test length manual 5 cycles. Access type was either as logical drive or as physical device.
I left it runing for the night, it wrote over everything on the chip few times and verifyed it few times and was still at work when I got up.
I stoped the program, unpluged the drive, looked around the menus, I might have changed the Online Type/mode in the set up and plugged it back in, the drive wasn’t formated so format came up with 1.9GB drive, formatted and its been 1.9GB / 2GB drive ever since.
These players have a interesting Online mode in the set up options are:
on this player, mutli drive showed two partitions one with my content and other had some kind of encrypted content some strange filenames all messed up supposedly big files in there atleast two 3GB files etc.
normal mode shows the disk for the user content
encrypted only shows only the strange partition.
Thats the way it worked before I wrote everything over, now it only shows the 2GB disc on any setting.
I would definitely need to buy another one of these to write step by step on it, but the firmware might be different from another seller so its pretty tricky, it might not get fixed the same way, the 16GB player that I have which is actually around 4GB the same steps didn’t work on it.
You can get check flash 1.09 from:
I suspect any kind of proper format might fix this player (all sectors written, could be done with windows format, from command line with format /X /P:1 Driveletter: (/P:passes Zero every sector on the volume passes times.)
Note becareful to pay attention with programmes that run in command boxes and use parameters, make sure you get your drive letters and parameters sorted out first!
Niko’s solution may work for you too. If you bought on of those many fake MP Players from lovehuangfeifei2008 you might like to try. If you have an MP Player like the one shown in this solution, you just may be able to fix your MP Player and restore it to it’s true size!
