Question about Thomson Lyra PDP2842U MP3 Player
Big Problem. I've dropped the player and when i turned it on the text "Filed to load files Resen unit to resume operation" "Update Lyra Hd Files System if problem persists" I found the recovery program, but the player won't connect anymore to USB. I had uploaded 4000 songs, help help help! How can i fix the connection?
Whoa, i've been so busy lately, I almost forgot about this place... Unfortunately, this is yet another mp3 player HDD problem. It's broken and there is nothing you can do to fix it except replace the hard drive. I hate to tell you this, but your songs are lost. If you desperately must try everything to get the songs back, I would suggest freezing it in the freezer (put it in a plastic bag if you fear moisture getting into the unit). After removing it from the freezer, you'll have a one to two hour window to try to get all the songs off before the hard drive thaws and you won't have access to the songs anymore unless you refreeze it-the window will shorten everytime you do this. The reason freezing MIGHT work is because most hard drive failure problems deal with the actuator arm touching/scratching the platter in which case the platter is being damaged and/or information cannot be read correctly. The coldness causes the arm to contract and stop touching the hard drive. Be aware that there might be more damage than freezing can rectify and the actuator arm might not be the problem. But hey, it's worth a try. If that seems a bit extreme(and indeed it is), you can send it in to a hard drive recovery specialist such as one listed here: http://dmoz.org/Computers/Hardware/Storage/Data_Recovery/
