Trutech Mp3 Player / Defective product!

1 United States Review updated:

My son has had the MP3 for not even 2 months. He told me that he pressed the on button and goes on but none of the songs show up. When he plugs it into the computer it doesn't show the file that all the songs are in. I didn't keep the receipt because I didn't think that it would be this bad. I am very mad and so is my son.

    I bought my son a Trutech MP3 player and I down loaded music and it was fine for the one day. However, the next day he tried to listen to the songs it wouldn't let him. We tried everything and the songs are there but won't play. The square symbol that stands for stop won't switch to play and instead it will say no authority. If we are missing some kind of info as to how to fix this, let me know, thanks.

    I bought my daughter a TruTech, Model#T512-M, Mp3 player, & loaded her music on it. It worked for two (2) days & now nothing, (blank screen, no music, nothing). But when I connect it to my computer, it shows the memory used, & will list the memory available, but nothing else. I'm unable to find the receipt, & when I went into the store, I was told it's been pulled from stock.

    I get the "player is protected" error when I try to load mp3's but have accidentally left the "hold" button on. Switch the "hold" button to "off" and it might work.

    I bought one of these on my 16 th birthday which was 7months ago and it finally died. It won't hold any more then 6 songs now and the screen is glitchy. I honestly would have thought TRUTECH would make something better then this. Oh well, guess I'll go buy a 150$ Sandisk which can play videos and music.

    Oh, this is very scary. I'm from Brazil and a friend had bought to me the mp3. The computer doesn't recognize the mp3 already, and for me $30 dollars is a lot of money here in Brazil... I just hope this problem to be temporary... If anyone knows how can I resolve this problem, please help... Thank you.

    I bought my son a Trutech MP3 player model #SMP-1GBL for his13th birthday. However, we are totally unable to erase music from it. I cannot find a website for help either. I have other things to do with my time than sit on the phone having someone not be able to help me. I will never buy anything else with this product name.

    Trutech Mp3 Player - Cannot load music files!
    United States

    We purchased a Trutech Model T-1000M from Target and cannot load music files to it. there are no instructions or drivers available for XP users. Totally ridiculous wait times when trying to contact the company. We will be returning this "garbage" to the retailer!

    I bought one for my wife. When I put the battery in it got really hot and melted slightly. Of course it doesn't work. Thank the Chinese for this. I think it's about time we stopped importing junk from them.

    My trutech player has recorded the songs, but they won't play! I think they have been stopped. There's a small bold square on the side of the screen, andit looks like the "stop" icon on cd players and things. HELP!!!

    I was given an TRu Tech MP3 player and it has been nothing but trouble. In fact useless would be a better way to describe it. A nightmare to download music and the final thing is that when switched on it displays some message about flash error and needing formatting. No idea how to do this. But cannot switch the thing off except by removing battery! If anybody from Tru Tech reasd this, stop making MP3 players and do everybody a favour.
