HD won't connect

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/

I dropped Hitachi external drive...


If you have no backup and your drive is damaged, that is it, no data.
Plug the usb in with your drive, leave your computer looking for the drive. If windows, it may take some time. If Mac it won't be long. If neither can see it, the TOC is damaged and it will need a computer engineer to try and recover the drive.

How to add videos


Don't know this unit so this is general for most players.What I know is that the problem I' ve had(and solved) is that Audio/Video files are unique in that there are many types, AVI, MP4, RM, DVIX .MPEG.FLV..... In addition resolution can vary, Then There's CODEXs . You must find out what file, files are supported by your player absolutely first.I have loaded files onto players and they don't even show up on menu folders or it's Drive. Many players have websites that you can download converters/media managers that are supported by your player.Not every file is convertable.Once you learn what you can convert to put it on your player is easy,either with media manager or drag and drop onto the unit when attached to the computer look for the new Drive letter that's your unit.This problem is frustrating but once you do the steps I've instructed it will work.Good Luck.

Downloading music onto a mp3player


I think I fugured it out. I think this should set the thing up for you. Turn the unit on. Push the button in and hold for the count of three. Wait as you count to two then push the buton in quickly. The screen should display a different "MUSIC" sign. Now the tiny file type in the upper left of the screen should say "mp3". Now make sure you are loading mp3 files. Be sure the unit is ON when you connect it to the USB port. Drag and drop files onto the mp3 player. I got it to accept 5 songs so far. I am working with Windows xp. Hope it helped!

Failed to Load Files


I was able to access the play list using Windows Media Player. I was trying to get the computer to recognize the player, and it wouldn't do it. I even downloaded the Lyra Personal Audio Player updater... that didn't work or recognize the player.
Try the programs that are on your computer for playing MP3's.
