    Hi all,
    I purchased about 2 years ago, from Aldi (here in Sydney) a Portable Multimedia Player, model MD 95639 or MDVID 220 - which is also a rebadge of a MSI Megaview 588, model MS 588 (shown below).

    My problem is: it is now stuck on the intro "boot-up animation" screen when turning it on - and it cannot reach the main menu (as pictured), which it should do so after about 2 seconds on the intro screen.
    I am not sure if a) it is an age thing, as the device is about 2 years old, or b) because I have used it quite a lot since owning it, or c) if the 20gb hdd is corrupted from an "invalid" file I found and deleted just before it jammed.
    So my question is: can this device be reset? There is no reset pin switch, but is there a combination of switches and buttons that will reset it? So that I can format it.
    Has anyone else encountered this problem with this device? Or one of its similar rebadged models?
    Thank you for any help.

    I called the service people today after work, and the guy said there is no way to reset that device - and that I'm not to first to ask this. To his knowledge there is no way to readily restore the unit. He suggested that I could get the device serviced, but speculated the cost of such would surely exceed the value of the unit - to which I said no. There are plenty others on the market now that do the samethings... so that's that. It appears all that is left for this Aldi PMP now, is a kindly visit from Dr Foot!
