Problems With The NETAC A100 Car MP3 / WMA Player

  AirToob 10:32 10 Jan 2007

This is basically a neat little device (it is a USB memory stick with rechargeable battery that also plays MP3 and WMA files through headphones or FM radio, in linear or shuffled order, plus other functions) and excellent value for money at less than £50 (from for the 2GB version. However, it has exasperating problems (including NO FILES messages and deleting all its files) that you can overcome if you know the information provided below. It also has one of the worst set of instructions I have ever encountered, which is where most of the problems really lie, and a non-responsive support site.

In order to save other people some trouble, I have put a mini review and trouble shooting guide here:

I hope it helps! I haven't resolved all the problems by any means, so any responses or updates/hints would be most welcome. In any case I plan to update the document from time to time.

A good idea AirToob to create a website with your solutions but if theres so many problems with the item I would buy something else without all the niggles.
