Dell DJ Problems

Archived from groups: alt.sys.pc-clone.dell (More info?)

I'm having problems transferring songs to my Dell DJ. I gave up on
musc match and tried the explorer software that dell offers for a free
download on their site. It works most of the time (i just drag and
drop mp3s via the windows explorer), but sometime abut after 5 song
transfers, it refuses to transfer any more songs because of a lost
connection with the player. I then have to unplug the dj or reboot it,
which is a pain! Any suggestions for me?

I saved a lot of money not buying an iPod, but I would have preferred
to spend a little more and save myself this hassle!

    If you just downloaded the Explorer software and didn't update your
    firmware, that may be your problem. You might enjoy visiting the

    I do have the latest firmware -- in fact, I have the version that is
    only suggested for users with an FM tuner. Do you think this could be
    the problem? Can I roll back my firmware upgrade?

    Yes, you can roll back to the previous firmware upgrade.
    Apparently you are not the only one having similar problems.
