Akai mpc 4000 - hard drive & cd rom not found by machine

The hard drive & cd rom both have power connected but are not showing as devices in the menu. Thought that it may be that the hard drive was not set to master but this is not the problem.

You could set the sample to "one shot" in the trim page or in the Program>KG Mix>Zone page.... it is currently set to "as sample"... i like to use the release to let the sample fade out as long as i like... its a lot diffrent from the old poly mono thing but i like it better overall... hope this is helpfull.

Sounds like the hard drive either has bad sectors or has corrupted data and it needs to be formatted.
If checking for errors or formatting doesn't help, you may need to replace the drive. Depending on the hard drive that is installed, it may be getting to the end of useable life cycle or has damaged sectors and causes the MPC to lock up. It may also be that the controller board on the drive is failing.

Check the drive either with the built in utility or connect it to a computer and use a non destructive test utility like HDD Regenerator that runs from a bootable CD on a PC.

Cheers and good luck.

I am having my akai mpc2500 fixed and fully upgraded, the engineer has found a problem with the IDE line, apparently the hard drive and cd drive will not work with the machine he has tried a couple of


Hello there,
You dont say what was wrong when you said it was being 'fixed' and a Hard Drive and/ or CD added.
Has it been updated to V1.24 software which fixes a bug in hard drives formatting ? As per the release notes. http://www.akaipro.com/product/mpc2500#downloads


I would very much doubt there is problem with the IDE interface UNLESS this was the original reason you were having it fixed.

I would take it to the AUTHORISED AKAI PRO Dealer to have it inspected.and a PROPER understandable report given to you if the Machine still won't accept a Hard Drive or a CD mechanism.
Go to bottom of page here For AKAI PRO dealer near you. It cannot hurt to get a second opinion.

I can't hear any sounds in my mpc 4000


Have you loaded sounds for the pads from an internal or external storage device? (Such as CD or Internal Hard Drive, if installed) - each time you turn on the power, the programs are cleared so the pads will not make any noise until you load the sounds you want.

Otherwise, it could be related to your speaker setup?

Provide some details on your system setup and whether you are loading programs etc.

First you must configure your PC to read your mpc 100
flush card. Just insert the software CD driver of your mpc
100 flush card, if you have the CD. Otherwise, you must
have a download from the internet for the software driver.

Mpc 4000 lcd


Hey, it sounds like the LCD is not receiving any signal from the video output. I would take it somewhere to be opened up for a closer inspection. Again the cause could be something more serious on the internal circuitry. No way of telling till the schemata is tested.

Good luck
