Question about Alesis ADAT HD24 Fireport (ALADHDFIR)

1 Answer

HD24 won't mount drive in Bay 2

Drive mounts, immediately unmounts, and read-oud says to check jumper setting. All ribbon and power connectors are tight. Switching power connectors changes nothing. This occurs in bay 2 only. Bay 1 operates properly

    I have the exact same problem in Bay 2 only. I have a Western Digital drive

    I have the same problem except it is on both drives. One time it will boot up fine - next time nothing but the "Check jumper settings" message. It is a WD 320 gig.

    I have the same problem with both bays. Mine has done it every since I owned it. I have just made pulling the drive out and putting it back in until works part of my normal operating procedure. Mostly I have WDC drives. After it does mount, it seems to work well thereafter.

Alesis published a patch for the HD24 which involves adding a 2200uF capacitor to the HD24, which solves this problem for some drives that never mounted before. As electrolytic capacitors age, their capacity reduce- which may cause this problem. It may well be you can fix this problem by replacing the existing 2200uF capacitor with a fresh one, keeping the polarity of the capacitor in mind of course.

Will mounting sdv8622t/27 antenna higher improve reception.also if the booster stays dry is it ok to mount outdoors


yes, mounting the sdv8622t/27 antenna higher will improve its reception. The more the antenna goes up, the better the reception it receives. There won't be any interruptions if the sdv8622t/27 antenna goes higher. So, it is better if you mount the antenna higher as you intend.

As for the booster, it is not okay for the booster to stay outdoors. The booster should remain indoor, while the antenna stays outdoor.

I believe this is clear to you now. If you still have any more questions about your sdv8622t/27 antenna, please let me know as I would be please to respond to you.

Yours sincerely.

No mounting instructions in package. will it work on an LG 47 inch led tv? To many peices in the package?

It should work with the LG 47". you need to find the correct bolts that fit the mounting holds on your TV. There should be a bag of bolts packaged with the Omnimount.

I need help with running my alesis fireport 1394 with windows 7

Either use the legacy drivers for your 1394 interface or do as I did and just download HD24 Tools program until Alesis makes a device that works on modern operating systems! Don't stay up late waiting for Alesis to do that. Ask yourself when the last firmware upgrade for the HD34 was.

SCSI vs. SATA vs. PCI Controllers

to use your external hard drive as boot drive you will need to set bios to boot from it if the bios allows you to
i do not know which section of the dell bios it is but it will have boot order or similar you will have to follow instruction to set it the main problem having extenal boot is windows will not install to USB devices

As for the hard drive from dell it could be a sata drive they sold you you need the standard one
Hope this helps your dilemma

Optical drives should eject (via their front panel eject button) whether there's even a data cable connected or not. If yours is not ejecting, that makes me question it's power connection. Try plugging the drive into a different power connector (preferably on a set of wires that doesn't already have a device on it, if possible).
