This came from their website. I’m going to apply this and modify it in case I run into problems.

Procedure for Uploading New Song to VIVAUS MINI

Requirements: Any USB Flash Drive – any capacity but preferably 1gb up (except USB with U3 smart Drive)
1. Insert USB Flash Drive to your computer.
2. Create a folder named “200” in your USB DRIVE
3. Download BIN files (Vivaus MINI) from our download page. (Kumyoung Bin Files Location)
3. Copy the downloaded BIN files inside the “200” folder in your usb drive.
4. Remove USB drive from your computer.
5. Power on your Vivaus MINI.
6. Press SETUP button on your remote control, then input your password (default is 1234), a SETUP MENU will appear then press ARROW DOWN Button until you go down to NEW SONG UPGRADE, press OK button, then input password for updating new song (default is 5678) a NEW SONG MENU will appear press OK button to NEW SONG READ.
7. Follow screen instruction by inserting USB Drive at the back of the player, then new song will automatically uploaded.
8. Then Power off your player and remove USB Drive, then Power on again to see list of songs uploaded to your player.


My Comments:

My first attempt failed at step 6 to 7. I inserted my HD into the USB slot and it said it couldn’t find the binary file. “Warning didn’t find binary files. Please power Off and then Remove USB Memory Stick”. I tried it again but failed at the same step. Can’t it read hard drives? Oh well, I need to search for a flash disk then. I’ll update this when I have more info.

2nd attempt:

I used a CD-R King USB and it still failed me. I was able to get further and it looked promising (it was already uploading,copying songs) until it again failed. I’ll try with another USB stick.

3rd attempt:

It worked! I just used another flash drive. 🙂

Till next time,

  6. Hi! I have a Vivaus Mini and followed the steps in updating new songs. Nagkaproblema din ako on my first 2 tries using an 8GB PQI Flash Drive which was formatted as NTFS. I reformatted the disk as FAT32, and on my third try using the same USB drive, it updated. We need to ensure that the USB disk is not NTFS but FAT32. I hope everyone finds this helpful. Thanks! 😀

  8. Sir, pano yun Kumyoung Vivaus Pro II? Pareho din ba ito sa Vivaus mini? Tnx! 🙂

  9. Sir, pano yung Kum Young Vivaus Pro II? Pareho din ba ng pag download ng songs sa internet at pag upload ng songs sa machine? Tnx! 🙂

  10. Wala pa po bang NEW SONGS? 2012?

    • Hindi na update ung website nila e. 🙁 pero pag bumili ka ng pic chip, bibigay naman nila sayo ung files or sila na maguupload sa player mo mismo.

  11. Good eve, i just bought my vivaus mini and im a real newbie user. I would like to check if I can already update the songs so I tried to register to http://www.kuyoung.ph and set my username and password. But it has been almost a month already, I had been trying to login and it always prompts me: It is under approval or check username and password. Any idea? I already tried to create again a different username and password but still no reply. Please help me please. Many thanks in advance.

    • hello, I don’t think their website still works or gets updated. Your best bet is to go to their service center and have it updated there. 🙂

      yo if
      u want to register and its saids under aprooval it means u need to wait on 2 days to login ur Kumyong account

  12. Hi Sir Allen, does that mean I can no longer download new songs over the internet? One of the reasons I bought the Vivaus mini is because of its feature that I can update its songs, just what the salesman of SM Appliance guaranteed me over and over again when he is convincing me 🙂 How about your previous conversations that you can download, how does it work? Perhaps that will work also for me, aside from going to their office in Pasig? I live here in Tarlac City 🙂

    • Ah, you can still download but not via their website. You can call their office and ask them to send you the files via email. Also, note that every 3 months, you need to buy a new pic chip so that the updates for those 3 months would work.

  13. Hala?! pic chip? need pa po talaga nun? tinanong ko din sa nagbenta wla na dw ganon..dahil 500 gb na dw capacity ng mga latest models, all you have to do is download. how much naman po ang 1 pic chip if ever at sa office lang ba nila un nabibili? wat’s the latest songs you got? my vivaus mini only got til Dec 2011. Sa inyo pwede po ba me manghingi if ever 🙂 Tnx po talga sa help, mejo may nalilinawan me pro naguguluhan pa din 🙂

    • yes, you need a pic chip. For example, my mini was updated last December 2012. In order for me to get the updates for January 2013 to March 2013, i need a new pic chip. For April to June, I need another one.

      When did you buy your mini? If you just bought it this year, it should be updated to at least January 2013 else, they sold you an old stock.

      Pic chips can be bought from their office or via online sellers (a bit more expensive).

  14. hindi ba parang panlolo ko ito? nung binenta sa min ang vivaus namin wala naman ni mention na pic chip. ngayon lumalabas, magbabayad ka ng 500 kada 3 buwan para ma update ang unit mo? Tama ba ang intindi ko?

    • I agree. You should complain to your seller about this because the pic chip is a very important piece of hardware needed to update your unit. No pic chip means no updates in the future aside from the 3 months of data your current pic chip has.

  15. Sir.. ask ko lang…yung kumyoung singcus 500hd,pano rin ba ba update ng new songs?.. bakit di ko makita sa site nila ang ganito model? meron lang yung vivaus ,tas mini… tnx po

    • hello everyone im also a vivaus mini user and kailangan talaga bumili ng pic chip para maiload nyo new songs….medyo magastos nga po but mas mura pa rin sya kaysa sa ibang videoke mics.if you want to upgrade pls contact mr kevin of sulit.com.ph…sa kanya na ako bumibili ng pic chip and free na yung new songs…plus pwede pa kayo humingi ng technical assistance kung may problem vivaus mini nyo…check mr kevin here…http://kevinshop.sulit.com.ph/
