First disappointing thing: Not worked on my Windows XP Professional (other USB devices including mass-storage, HDD etc. work). The only USB device which not works is: G-FLASH WMA-MP3-Player…
Contacted Maxfield support which answered quickly. But got no real solution yet.
Tried the thing on following systems:
- Windows XP Professional (desktop):
The system recognized that there is something but the device was not visible and hanged Explorer! Only if detached the device the Explorer worked again!
- Windows XP Home Edition (desktop):
Nothing happened if attached the device
- Windows Server 2003 (Laptop DELL Latitude C810):
USB Device Not Recognized

The next disappointing thing here. Worked at home (only one frequency worked). But not worked in my car! I was buying this device to hear MP3/WMA in my car…! CAUTION: Disable RDS on the radio!
WMA on HiFi via FM-Transmitter
Very quietly even G-FLASH Player and HiFi on maximum volume!
MP3 on HiFi via FM-Transmitter
Same behavior with WMA files.
WMA on car radio via FM-Transmitter
If you turn off RDS it will work! But the sound quality and volume are very disappointing. I’ll turn back to my music CD’s.
MP3 on car radio via FM-Transmitter
Same with WMA.
Works now on 2/4 Windows installations. Don’t know why… Works fine now. Support is good and manual is available online as PDF documents. Supports folder navigation. Turning on the XBASS feature improves sound quality. I’ll never buy such a FM-Transmitter again!
