JXD MP3 player firmware

If you own a new JXD 1 gig mp3 player with sigmatel software and it does not hold the full 1 gig you can download the current (July 2005) firmware update here. It was sent to me as a .rar compressed file and I expanded it and re-compressed it as a zip file.  Both files are quite large and may take some time to download. Once downloaded you will need to use winzip or winrar to expand the files to a folder on your computer before you can load them. In Windows XP, creating and unzipping zipped files is a built-in feature.

click here for the ZIP file sigmatel firmware update zip. 4.75mb

click here for the .rar file sigmatel firmware update rar. 3.65mb **

** Some computers identify the .rar extension as a web page (.html). If you try to download the .rar version of the file and you get a window or page with lots of meaningless text, click the stop button in your browser or close the window to stop the text from coming in. To get the file you can try to right click on the link and then choose "save target as" and after it has downloaded you can change the extension back to .rar.

Darik's Boot and Nuke

Darik's Boot and Nuke ("DBAN") is a self-contained boot floppy that securely wipes the hard disks of most computers. DBAN will automatically and completely delete the contents of any hard disk that it can detect, which makes it an appropriate utility for bulk or emergency data destruction.

DBAN is a means of ensuring due diligence in computer recycling, a way of preventing identity theft if you want to sell a computer, and a good way to totally clean a Microsoft Windows installation of viruses and spyware. DBAN prevents or thoroughly hinders all known techniques of hard disk forensic analysis.



You must make a boot disk to use this software. The .exe file for Darik's Boot & Nuke is 1.6 mb and does not fit on a floppy directly. Please download the file to your hard disk first and then, with a blank floppy in the drive run the .exe file. The program will look for your floppy and it will then create the boot disk for you.

Microsoft Card File Program

This is the old Microsoft Card file Rolodex program, when used on your system you may have to launch the program and then while in the cardfile program navigate to your card file data file and choose it to open it. This is because the extension .crd is now used by other programs on windows computers. You can change the default program for the extension .crd but, that is at your own risk.

Microsoft created two versions of this program. One is 16 bit and was on early versions of windows such as windows 95 and 98 and will run on windows 7 32 bit systems, but not on 64 bit systems. The second version is a 32 bit program that was on Windows NT systems and it does run on windows 7 and windows 8 and 8.1 systems, however the help system does not work.

Cardfile.exe 16 bit will run on 32 bit systems.

Cardfile.exe 32 bit will run on 64 bit systems.
