SD cards or USB drives not showing up on media players

Micca digital media players support the vast majority of commonly used storage device types, including SD cards and USB hard drives. There are, however, limitations that users should be aware of. The SD cards and USB drives must meet the following requirements:

  • Not password protected or encrypted.
  • SD cards up to 32GB, USB drives up to 2TB.
  • File system must be FAT/FAT32 or NTFS.
  • Partition type must be Master Boot Record (MBR).

While it is easy to determine the size of a drive, users often don’t know what file system or partition type is being used. This tutorial shows how a Windows PC can be used to find out the file system and partition type of a drive.

Photo Batch Reprocessing Tutorial

There are times when a few corrupt or incorrectly formatted photos will cause odd behaviors from digital photo frames or media players. While computers have powerful software and hardware to skip or handle these files, inexpensive electronics will often experience difficulties. This tutorial uses the free image utility FastStone Image Viewer to reprocess images in batch mode, which quickly fixes corrupt or incorrectly formatted images.

Deleted Media Files Still Show Up

If you’ve deleted some media files from a USB drive or SD card, yet the deleted files still show up, the issue is likely caused by the presence of Windows Recycling Bin or MacOS Trash Can folders on the USB drive or SD card. Fixing this issue requires emptying the contents of these folders permanently.

Warning: The purpose of the Windows Recyclin Bin and MacOS Trash Can is to allow you to recover previously deleted files that you later need. The steps below permanently empties these folders so you will not be able to recover these files again. Proceed only if you are certain that you do not need these files.

To empty the Recycling Bin folder created by a Windows PC, plug your USB drive into the PC, wait for the drive to show up in Windows Explorer. Right click on the drive and select “Properties”. In the “General” tab, click on “Disk Cleanup”. Place a check mark for “Recyclin Bin”, and click “OK”. This will delete the contents of the Recycling Bin on the USB drive.

For MacOS, there is unfortunately no built-in way to empty just the Trash Can on a USB drive; all Trash Can folders on all drives are emptied by default. To empty the Trash Can for all drives, plug your USB drive into the Mac, wait for it to mount. Next choose Empty Trash under the Finder menu or press Command+Shift+Delete. A pop up will ask you to confirm that you wish to empty the Trash Can.

How to remux videos into MKV format

The MKV container file format is quickly becoming the most popular choice for digital videos. Consequently, MKV is also the format that is best supported by HD-capable Micca digital media players. This tutorial will show you how to quickly convert a video that’s currently in a different container file format to MKV. It is also useful to remux an existing MKV file to fix any errors that may have been in the original file.

First, download and install the free MKVToolnix software from the following URL:

http://www.bunkus.org/videotools/mkvtoolnix/downloads.html#windows

After installing the the software, run the “mkvmerge GUI” program that’s now available from your Start->Programs->MKVToolnix menu. Follow the directions below to quickly convert videos into MKV:

  • Click on the “add” button and find the video file you want to convert into MKV. Once the video has been succsfully added, it’s audio and video tracks will be shown in the “Tracks, chapters and tags” box.
  • Click to select the video track in the “Tracks, chapters and tags” box. The video track is identified by “type: video” in parenthesis.
  • With the video track highlighted, go to the “Extra options” tab and change the “Compression” field value to “none”. This is a very important step.
  • In the “Output filename” box, specify the output file. By default, the program will use the same directory and file name as the original file but with MKV file extension.
  • Click “Start muxing” button to begin the conversion. Depending on the size of the original video file, this process should take just a few minutes.
  • Click on the “Ok” button once the conversion is complete.

And that’s all there is to it. The resulting file should be about the same size as the original and there is no decrease in video or audio quality. MKVMerge is a very powerful tool and it can do a lot more than what’s described in this guide. For example, it is also possible to add additional audio and subtitle tracks to the video file by adding them in step 1. If these additional capabilities are of interest to you, read the help documentation that is supplied with the software for more information.
