Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Firmware upgrade

NEVER EVER UPGRADE UR FIRMWARE OF ANY HARDWARE(MP3, SOUNDCARD, BIOS, MOBILE, DVD PLAYER, ETC)
UR HARDWARES DO NOT REQUIRE ANY UPGRADE OF FIRMWARE
THEY ARE MENT TO WORK THE WAY THEY WERE MFG
MOST OF THE MFGS DONT RECOMEND ANY FIRMWARE UPGRADE UNLESS THERE IS A LARGE CHANGE IN THE FUNCTION OF THE HARDWARE AFTER U BOUGHT THE HARDWARE AND IF IT IS COMPATIBLE FOR THE CHANGE.

SO NEVER EVER UPGRADE FIRMWARES OF UR HARDWARES.

IF U DO, IT WILL BE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND YOU MAY DAMAGE THE EQUIPMENT / TOTALLY LOSE THE HARDWARE FUNCTIONS.

I have also the same problem and after firmware upgrade i found that my drive does not detected by my pc's bios setup. is there any solution for backup the process or repair the drive.I edited the registry,but still both drives wount show up in BIOS like they're vanished.The system restore didn't solved the problem I get the message ''primary(master) IDE drive not installed,secondary(slave) IDE drive not installed,press F4 to abort'' then it finds floppy and HDD and after that boot into windows.I have 3 CD ROM drives but only two are connected CD ROM AND CD-RW drive.Thanks for any help.


did u upgrade ur BIOS firmware ?
if so it's gone corrupt...if u have the backup of the original firmware...then FLASH the BIOS with that...else u may have to change the BIOS chipset....but that may be a tricky issue as the chip is fixed in the motherboard....
Cardinal Rule 1
NEVER UPGRADE / NEVER MAKE ANY CHANGES TO UR FIRMWARE ON ANY HARDWARE.....THE HARDWARES ARE MFG TO AND FIRMWARES ARE INSTALLED TO WORK THE WAY THEY ARE MADE...99.99% of the people who made changes to the firmware on any of their hardwares....have always faced issues later with the hardware...

Rule 2,
Always take a backup of the original Firmware if u can else dont venture into this complicated issue...

Battery won't hold a charge...


Your problem is probably hardware-related, and will require replacing the player, but you can try this:
Download the latest firmware upgrade from www.rcaopal.com to restore the player. The firmware upgrade file will be on the "Download Upgrades" section of the website.

it wont play anything


Reset, upgrade the firmware - if the problem persists then this is a hardware issue and will require replacing. Sry.
Reset and then do a firmware upgrade if the problem persists.
