Nice while it lasted,
This review is from: Creative MuVo TX 256MB MP3 Player (Electronics)
I agree that this is a nice little mp3 player for it's price...as long as it works. Unfortunately, however, a long lifespan does not seem to have been a priority of the manufacturers. I ordered two this Spring, for me and my girlfriend, and they worked fine at the beginning (nice sound and display, easy to handle). Mine broke first, after about three months. I didn't drop it or anything, it just simply stopped working, with the by now somewhat infamous 'file system error' message being displayed.
I discovered that the Creative website is full of people who have the same problems, and it seems that the technical advice they give, reformatting and so on, doesn't work for most people.
Now, after about six months, my girlfriend's muvo broke in exactly the same way, it just simply stopped working from one moment to the other.
We have since looked around in the net, and it seems that it is a very commen problems with the muvo. A word that is often used to describe it is 'disposable'. Next time i'll pay more for something that works for more that a few months!
