Default New Silver 16GB P3 came with entire Dire Straits Catalog!

Hey all. First time poster and new P3 owner.

Right out of the box, the only thing I found on the P3 was all of Dire Strait's albums! Nothing else! Did anyone/everyone get this? Weird!

Also weird...and I haven't dug into this yet...almost 6 GB of the 16 GB are taken up by something?!? What gives?

Is it possible the firmware is messed up somehow? BTW...v2.16

Thanks!

Sounds liek a refurbished unit that wasn't reformatted or wiped.

You are missing the text files, the games, the videos etc.

Yup, it's not new, it's a refurb - I hope you didn't overpay.

Congrats on the P3! But if you paid for/expected new, I'd start making phone call/sending emails ASAP...

cheers,

Thanks, All.

Well...they didn't SAY it was refurb but I guess that explains it. I don't normally shy away from refurb (I have several things that are) but I want to KNOW that's what I'm gritting! I paid $125...

So how should I go about putting everything back as if new...install the latest firmware?

Install the latest FW anyways, and if it runs well - then just enjoy the Dire Straights CD's.

Me, I got mine used (from an ABI member) and I couldn't be happier!!!

Well, I hope your a dire straits fan....the 6gb was probably that. Were they in high bitrate?

ps: this is a sign that P3s SUCK! YOU SHOULD HAVE GOT AN S9!

LOL...no. They were @ 400MB total. I copied to my PC, reformatted the P3, installed the 2.18 firmware, original files and games. ALL of which only took 128MB so I am GOOD 2 Go!

Thanks, everyone!
