I don't know of anywhere that deals with generic players like those except the manufacturer. Most often whatever they offer is the only firmware available. AFAIK firmware is hardware specific and trying to use one that was written for another device either won't work at all or will brick the device.

Most often the firmware the manufacturers offer is to repair the device. The few times I've tried reinstalling the firmware when helping someone it hasn't done anything to fix the problem.

Putting it as nicely as possible I'd say they're junk that's best avoided. The combination of shoddy assembly, cheap parts and poor firmware makes them a waste of money.
