Ok, I had started another topic on this, but now I have more info and images, so I'd like to ask you if any of you guys recognize this firmware:

Does it look like anything you know?

Apparently, the chip's an ALi (Acer Laboratories, inc, according to Th3_uN1Qu3). The player is manufactured by MoreStar and sold under several brands (mine is a Zipy, as you can see by the image)

If it helps, I have in my possession a software (probably a firmware updater, but I can't tell since I couldn't get it to run without crashing) and some files, that might provide an insight into what kind of firmware it uses.

Oh, and in case you were wondering what the "about" menu entry says, it's just: "ver: 03.10.00" (actually, it's written "ver: 031000", but I'm convinced that xx.xx.xx is the correct format. Read the original post for details. This post (and the one it quotes) might shed some light on this, but it could be just a coincidence...

Finally: this one appears to be the same firmware:

pawgal mentions a Bellwood BMP 102. There are several with that name, but with some luck the one referred might be the above. According to that post, Grundig MP 600, WIWA WMP 501 and KORR KMP 221 also use the same firmware.

Well, I'll appreciate any help.

Oh, I forgot to mention:

I tried both s1fwx ("no device found") and SigmaTel Firmware Extractor ("This device is not recognized as a SigmaTel device") so I assume it's neither of them.
