Learning how to use the G.G.Martinsen MP3/4 player.

I am pretty good when it comes to my smartphone, and laptop, but I have to say that using the G.G.Martinsen Mini Usb Port Plum Button 1.78 LCD MP3/MP4 16 GB Portable MP3Player , MP4 Player , Video Player , Music Player , Media Player , Audio Player (BLUE) is more complicated for me.

I love the fact that it is tiny, and barely weighs anything.  In the box are:1 x MP4 Player 1x Earphone 1x USB Cable 1x User Manual.  The manual is very small, and I cannot read the getting started area, even with my glasses.  I tried a magnifying glass too, and that helped a little.

I charged up the player, got into menu, and then tried to load some music.  I have to be honest, that a friend help me do it.  If I were 40 years younger, I would have had no problems.

I like that it has 16 GB of memory, in such a small device.  I can’t wait to put photos into it, but that will wait until my next lesson.

I really am in awe of it, and what it can do.  I will certainly update this review, once I get to feel more comfortable using it.  That is unless one of my granddaughters in England, wants me to send it to her.  I know that she has an older model.

I received this item for free, for an honest, and unbiased review.

Update:  I  received another one from the same company this week, so planning on giving it to someone less fortunate as me.



  1. When I listen to music, turn off the device and turn it back on, it goes back to the beginning of the playlist. How do I get it to pick up where I left off?

  2. instead of turning it off, you have to pause it (the unit will turn off after a few seconds). Then to resume, you hold down the play/down button for a few seconds. it’ll come back to where you left off as long as you haven’t done anything else in the meantime.

  3. This is a squirely, poorly planned device.. However after lots of research and messing around with it, I believe you may have yours set to ‘repeat folder’ mode. Mine just moves from one song to the next until it completes the album (folder) then it goes to th enext folder in line. How to set it to continue with the next album (folder) rather than replaying the same folder:

    While a song is playing, click on the MENU button .. You’ll see a list of options:

    – Repeat / Equalizer / Variable Speed / Replay Mode / Exit.

    Using the right and left controls, chose ‘Repeat’

    You’ll be presented with the following menu:
    – Normal / Repeat One / Folder / Repeat Folder / Repeat All / Random / Intro .

    Using the MENU button, chose ‘Normal’.

    If your player is like mine (and there appear to be some variations) .. That should set you up to just play through al your songs.

  4. I downloaded a music file, but it will only let me play the other music, I tried going to the menu but it still won’t let me play it. Did I download the music wrong?


  5. If I cannot get answers quickly, too long already-considering… I’m going to toss this sad thing into the trash! And, I AM a tech guy!
