The files are named MyPopcon_1.pop, MyPopcon_2.pop, MyPopcon_3.pop, and MyPopcon_4.pop. These files reside in the \U5\Popcon\ directory of the MP3 player and can be replaced with new graphics by connecting the device with a PC.

NOTE: The graphics in POP files can be viewed by renaming the ".pop" extension to ".bmp" and then opening the file with any image viewer.
