    Tevion Mp3 player from Aldi

    Tevion Mp3 player from Aldi 14th Jul 05 at 6:23 PM
    Did anyone get one of these today? My daughter got one and cannot figure out how to download music from the computer onto the mp3 player. The computer does not seem to recognise the device, even though we have put the mp3 cd in to install. We have windows xp.

    Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. :confused:

    Yes. bought one today.

    Didn't install any software, just plugged it in to a USB port and the PC recognised it as a "device with removable storage" or something. I could then browse the memory on the player just like a normal folder, drag and drop stuff onto it etc.

    Just tried it on my second PC and the same thing happened. Subsequently, it appears as "Removable Disk(H)" when I browse "My Computer".

    I am using Windows XP Home edition, including pretty recent updates.

    If it is like the one I got a while back from Aldi, that took SD cards as well, then with anything above Win98SE, it should just be recognised when you plug it into an USB port. You should be able to just drag and drop files in then.

    One of the annoyances I find with this type of device is that they seem to have minds of their own when it comes to preserving the order of tracks in say, an album. One freeware program that helps for me is called "ReOrganize!" and you should be able to spot this on Google. I found this invaluable with the tracks on the SD card in above device.

    Hope that helps.

    Regards,

    White.

    It does not take an SD card, it is the one on offer today.

    Still not managed to get it working on my pc!

    Have tried it on my friends and it works straight away.

    Any suggestions on what might be stopping it working?

    Thanks.

    WHich version of Windows do you have?

    Do you have any other USB devices which you can plug into the ports you've tried? (To check it's not a faulty / miswired port).

    The only thing to note is that it doesn't say if it'll play DRM files.

    Something to consider if you plan or currently use the UK music download sites.

    Re USB device working in the back ports of a PC only. Some PC's seem to only be able to support USB 1 in the front ports so any USB 2 devices have to be plugged in in the rear sockets.

    We have just bought (35GBP) the 1GB Tevion MP3 player that Aldi now have on offer (13/7), which sounds like a later version of that detailed by Tharweb last year.

    It looks good and sounds good, but we don't seem able too find anything about 'folders' in the manual, and all our songs downloaded to it so far appear as a single numbered sequence, even though we have created them in individual album folders in the 'removable disk' that it appears as on our PC (XP home). It's not too bad finding tracks at the moment with 30-ish on board, but it will become a nightmare in the future unless we sort it.
    I cannot find anything on the Web regarding this unit. Can anyone help?

    Also, the Aldi website mentioned about two 'fm headsets' being supplied with this unit - but our unit came with one, standard headset! I am not quite sure how the player can get power out through the audio connection to the headset, so I can only imagine that a 'fm headset' would have a small tuner+battery built into the leads.
    Has anyone bought a unit with 2 headsets, or even better 'fm headsets' - whatever they are!

    Tevion MP3
    Re the problems with the Tevion MP3 player I agree with simonsdad that it is a good unit let down by a poor instruction book. There is no mention of folders in the instruction book though it states on the box that the unit has a folder structure.

    How do you get in touch with Aldi for help? I'm not too sure the girl at the counter would be able to help.

    Anyone know how to access folders on this unit?
  • C_Ronaldo
    is there no number in the manual

    write to head office, the address would be on the receipt

    re the supposedly 2 headsets with the mp3 player and only 1 in the box, if you contact the store where you got 1 from they will sort you out with one,
