HDD1630 Problem (PLEASE HELP!!)

My Mp3 player gets to the start up screen where it says Phillips, but all it does is that you can hear the hard drive clicking continuously, and it wont move from that Phillips screen, anybody have any ideas what i can do to fix it before i rip it apart and take a look at the hard drive?

Yep, that means the hard drive is probably fried. I had that problem, ended up opening up the unit and found the hard drive making the standard 'bad drive' sounds (the head moving back and forth repeatedly, unable to read data, occasional clicking sound).. return it.

Computer not detecting

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.

THEN, do the "Repair" in the Philips Device Manager

Go gear not working

Install and run Device Manager from the product CD.

Select the repair option, and follow the on-screen prompts.


If this doesn't work then it may be that the hard disk is faulty. There is an easy way to find out. The following procedure allows the player to connect to the PC as a removable drive. If the Pc reads the drive, then the drive is ok.

Connect the HDD1630 to the mains adaptor and the PC.

Before the computer has a chance to recognise the player, press "Power" and "Vol +" to reset the player.

As soon as the player resets (screen goes blank) press and hold "Vol -" until the PC recognises the player as a removable drive.

Try to access the player through "My Computer" as you would the main hard disk.
