Question about Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3 Digital Camera

Open Question

My pasasonic DMC-ZS3 only comes up with WMPinfo xml file

It was working fine for years I would connect to computer and normal Windows folders would come up where i could navigate to my pictures and videos. I think the issue happened when someone tried to connect to another computer, not sure. But now all i saw were a bunch of .xml files when connected to PC. Then they all disappear and i'm left with WMPinfo.xml file. I cannot get to anything, i even tried to pull pictures from my camera and i get errors. I can still view photos and pics from camera itself. Can anyone help?

Contact Panasonic - there is a widespread problem with CCDs in the last 3 or 4 years - keep pressing them for free repair as is your due with faulty goods, even outside the warranty period.
See the following link:-
Widespread CCD problems in consumer imaging productsCCD Sensor Problems in Consumer Imaging Products .... Given that the Leica DIGILUX 2 is a variant of Panasonic's Lumix DMC-LC1 design, it isn't surprising ...

SOURCE: Message: Memory Card Error - Memory Card Parameter Error on 4gb SDHC card

I have been rummaging around trying to find two solutions: 1) to get my Toshiba Satellite card reader to read SDHC cards and 2) to get my desktop USB ports to read SDHC cards. While MS offers a hotfix for XP, it does not always work because of the different Chip Sets in computers. I have also read where posters say that the SDHC card works in the compter NOW, but NOW will not work in the camera... and the SDHC card NOW works in the camera but will NOT work in the computer.... I found a tekkie article that may help clear the air... SDHC cards are formatted in Fat32x (NOTICE the "x") and SD cards are formatted in Fat32 (no 'x') and these compatibility problems arise when the user unwittingly or unknowingly RE-formats the SDHC card, either when it is put in the computer and won't read or when it is put in the camera and won't read... but just don't bother to mention that THAT is what they did upon inserting the card and only proceeded to complain about an apparent incompatibility. The camera or computer might even mislead you asking if you want to format the card..... but all is not lost. The Panasonic site gives a program AND a pdf instruction book on How To ReFormat an SD or SDHC card specifying the proper Fat32x or Fat32 format. Hope this helps.

Make sure you have the Mac driver for your camera. Install the Mac driver that came with the CD. Try to use a different USB cable. You can also try to isolate the problem by plugging your camera to a Windows OS computer like windows xp and vista.

Media player not opperate /open with mp3 song


I have been searching for few days on the same MEDIA PLAYER & RINGTONE problem for Samsung i780.
HERE IS THE SOLUTION:
Through file explorer go APPLICATION DATA, then VOLATILE . Remove every thing in this folder (VOLATILE). Reset your mobile and every thing should work fine.
Do backup your data before you make any move.
If this alone doesn't work for you remove WMPinfo.xml and MSMETADATA in program files (storage card.)

And i can't view my friends who are online.
If some one contact me i see him online.

Somebody know how to solve the problem ?

delete config.xml

Do not just install "over" the old version
quite often some files are not updated correct and get corrupt.

You can find Config.xml at:

Open Windows explorer select "show hidden files" in folder options

Paste or type %AppData%Skype in Windows or IE address bar.

Once you have found your Skype folder open your Skype username folder and look for the config.xml file.

delete config.xml any changes manually edited in this config.xml will be lost

exit Skype first

This config.xml will be rebuilt without any data loss, but hopefully error free, with next start of Skype.
Once you login again Skype will rebuild you config.xml file and download all you contacts.

What are all the folders in the Coby MP705-4G


MUSIC
PICTURES
Playlist
TXT
VIDEO

That's the same case the names on mine have.

In the root, there's 2 files....
MTP.BIN
WMPInfo.xml

That's it.

Can't delete preloaded files on 705


I had the same problem - VERY frustrating. Just found the answer, and am very happy to share it!

1. In setting/USB mode, select MSC mode.
2. Plug in Coby to USB
3. Open My Computer. Look for the Coby as a REMOVABLE DISK, not the Coby.
Files will be there for Viewing and Deleting! (On XP, at least).
4. Make a backup of MTP.BIN and WMPInfo.xml, which I think is the operating sytem?

I got the clue from here:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t357600-problem_coby_mpc7095_2_gb_mp3_player

Paupaul
Well, turn on you mp3 player, go on setting/USB mode and select MSC mode.

Then plug it on your computer and check in MICIN.DIR folder. You must find them.

It wasn't exactly what I saw, but once I looked, it was all there. Perfect!

Coby mp-705 2gb video mp3 player


im using 4gb MP-705 and i kinda read through the guide thing and the first problem with the ur vids are that, if u sync with window media player the video files becomes WMV, but you want AVI so change it to AVI and drag the files to the coby directly by going into computer-coby blah and movies folder. I dunno about the MTP.BIN and WMPInfo.xml, but i tried everything i knew for making videos work, but in the end it didn't work. Just try the method with dragging and if it doesn't work i dun really know im stuck there. don't forget to converse the files with the small cd program

Philips gogear sa6045 and wmpinfo


i had the same problem with my mp3 player after i refreshed the software.
this is what you have to do:
you have to connect your mp3-player to your computer and open the folder of your mp3 player (computer>click on your mp3-player) and then you just have to delete the wmpinfo.xml file.
(maybe you should save the file on your pc just in case the trick doesnt work)
after i did that all the songs worked again :)

i hope i could help anyone

1st approach (Quick one!)

1. Soft reset your device
2. make a backup copy of the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA if exists.
3. delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA.
4. Soft reset your device once again.


2nd approach (Long one!)

If 1st approach did not work, restore the MSMETADATA folder and try the following:

Step Zero: BACKUP
- Make a full backup of your device (including storage cards). If you don't like to do a full backup keep at least a backup of all files and folders we are going to delete as indicated below:

Step One
-In the main device directory delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the \Application Data\Microsoft\Media Player\ directory and all of
the files in it including the WMDRM folder.
-Delete the \Music folder

Step Two
-Go to your SD card main directory and delete the file WMPInfo.xml
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\MSMETADATA
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\WMDRM
-Delete the folder \SD-MMCard\Music

Step Three
-Repeat step two for any other storage cards.

Step Four
-Refresh devices in WMP and the storages card should show up in the left tab
and in the sync window you can click "Next Device"

Hope this helps...

Sounds like when you formatted your device, you deleted everything in there...you will need to get a firmware upgrade for your device..once you do that all the folder should be back in there..you should use windows media player to transfer files to your devic....
