Ruizu x02 mp3 player, change language from Chinese to English
I bought recently a small Ruizu x02 mp3 player on ebay and it came
with the language set to Chinese. Funny symbols everywhere. I did not know what to do with it
and the seller had not provided any instructions on how to change it to English.
Fortunately I found a friend who could help and change the language
settings to English.
I am posting this here for those who end up in a similar situation.
The photos below are in English to make it easier to understand the flow but even if the player is set to Chinese it is still the same path that you have to take through the menus to change the language.
The actual language selection menu is
fortunately not translated to Chinese and you can find a line that says "English".
Here is what to do:
Ruizu x02 review
Overall I am quite happy with this little mp3 player.
The mp3 player reviewed here is a RUIZU X02 purchased in 2018. The only model identifiers are on the back of this device:
- hardware: light but solid, it is a plastic case with a rubber like
coating similar to the classic ibm thinkpads. If you like thinkpads then
you will like the casing of this mp3 player.
- functionality: this is mainly a mp3 player even though it has some other features too. It
can supposedly play the music formats MP3/WAV/APE/WMA/FLAC but I tested
only mp3. It can as well display AMV videos and text files but the display
is too small for that and it would have been better if they had removed
those features and focused on music only. It has as well an FM radio receiver and there might even be other functionality in this little device that I have not discovered yet.
The mp3 player music sorting is file based.
That is: you can navigate through
files and directories and play/select music based on files and you can see the file names. I organize
music on my PC in files and directories and this way of working
translates perfectly to this player. I had in the past "smart" mp3 players that would
use only the meta data in the mp3 files to sort and organize music and
that does not work at all for me. I am happy with this player since it
fits my way of organizing things.
- sound quality: I could not hear any noise and the mp3 sound quality is crystal clear.
- battery: Built-in rechargeable lithium battery.
- connectivity: micro USB cable and 3.5mm stereo jack. You can have the
player on/off switch in off position and still play music while
charging. This is perfect if you use it in the car and power it via a 5v
usb charger. As the player stops then as soon as you turn the ignition off and
you can play again the next time you start the car. The player seems to have
some support to resume automatically where you left of last time but it does
not always work. I have not figured out what the logic it but there is probably a software fault in this area.
