Hi,

Take out the hard drive.
Format it using fat32 either by usb connector or install it in a pc.
Put new firmware on the hard drive. do not put it into a folder.
Check player for a button battery if there is one installed remove it and leave out for about 10 minutes.
Replace the button battery, replace the hard drive and boot it up.
Hope this helps.

Drive should be formatted in FAT32. This is more preferrable than NTFS
Firmware for Cyclone is
_mpd1100_ (do not rename)
check google for cyclone firware upgrade to get latest firware file as named above
Drive needs to be blank.
Transfer extracted file to the disk
Use Setup -> Firmware Upgrade. Confirm after F/W compare.
hope this helps

    Sorry to seem a bit thick here but how do i get the Cyclone to read the USB stick with the firmware onj it as there is no setup facility on the Cyclone box? i have the media centre box with Firmare _mpd1100_ (latest) all ready to go on .. cheers

  • craigie05 Feb 21, 2011

    Also, mine used to stick allot,, very unresponsive and thrustrating so i plugged the box into the laptop, took all the movies off it and formatted the 500GB HDD and then put 4 equal partitions on it and then transfered all my movies back onto the 1st partition (36GB worth) and it seems to work fine now ... i dont think it likes reading the 500GB as a whole drive but prefers smaller partitions - all i need now is to updatee the firmware - i have the .bin file (mpd1100 latest) on a USB pen drive but cant seem to find a setup option for the box to read from the USB to update the firmware ..any suggestions would be much appreciated

  • MackHenry Feb 21, 2011

    I think they all stick if you use a non compressed video format or use pause and fast forward alot. I play divx converted video from the start and it works every time. I know this is a limitation but its a great way to keep alot of stuff in one place that can be accessed quickly. I never had the problem you mentioned maybe it needs to see the whole drive formatted in fat32 with the firware file loaded before it will run setup. I never used a pen drive just usb to my computer

You will find that your PC has far more video codec support than your media player..
If your avi's are playing out of sync,I would recommend re-encode them using winavi etc...
I find BRRip to be the best media to play on these media players and never have audio sync issues...hope this helps

I have the same problem, I tried to update the firmware, the screen went blank, I left it for around half an hour and realised nothing was happening. Since then it won't return to the menu and just hangs on the logo screen. Any idea on how to reset the firmware? There is no battery to remove and no obvious jumpers to clear the settings.

Hello peoples,

I seem to also have made the school boy error of having a secondary partition in NTFS which has resulted in the voice/video sync issue. I intend on formatting the drive in FAT32 and re-installing the latest firmwear.

Any body have a link to the latest firmwear I have the basic none HD Sumvision Cyclone 3.5" HDD Media Player

How to find internal storage on cyclone micro 3


There is a "Firmware" update to Cyclone micro 3 .This can be downloaded from Sumvision web site :-
http://www.sum-vision.co.uk/productinfo/micro3b/micro3b.asp
When downloaded copy the file on to a Memory stick or card and click the USB entry or memory card entry on the main menu, and the Cyclone will update itself .
There should now be an entry on the main menu for "internal storage"

I have an unlocked/jailbroken 2g iphone with 2.0 version. All aspects of iphone work except music module. Itunes on my PC will not access iphone - wants to restore which would cause data loss and brick. ...


Do you still have all the songs on your pc? If so then you can just re-download the songs so I would restore it. If you can't connect it at all then you probably will not be able to back up the data. If you still need assistance let me know. If you have a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly it would be greatly appreciated.

I have an ipod classic 160 gig but keep gettin the error code 1439 wen i try to restore what should i do?


Hi, now, when you restored your 80 gB classic, did you upgrade the firmware to 1.1.2?
If so, do not.
I refuse as my firmware 1.1.1 works the ipod great and the only trouble started (twice) on trying to update the firmware.
Try a hard factory reset:support.apple.com/kb/HT1339

Then, charge fully with AC charger (this was recommended to me twice in an Apple store)

After wards, use USB to connect to your computer and do not allow it to upgrade to 1.1.2

(See incidental article about ipod touch: rupertgee.wordpress.com/2007/12/02/downgraderestore-ipod-touch-firmware-to-version-111-using-os-x/ this might even work on ipod classic - you've got nothing to loose); also have a look at Apple's updates: apple.com/support/downloads/

This seemed to work for me:

1. Download latest version of iTunes
2. disconnect from internet (I did this by removing my wireless adapter).
3. Put iPod into disk mode (hold select and play until display says "disk mode" at the top).
4. Connect iPod to computer
5. You should be prompted to restore, click yes.
6. Message will appear saying can't connect to internet, do you want to restore to latest version "2.0.1" instead? (Something along those lines).
7. It should start restoring and work this time.

Hope this helps.

I made a mistake and upgraded mym iphoone and i


You can download a downgrade in firmware for the iphone from felix bruns website. Then when you open up itunes you can choose which firmware file to use for a restore by holding down the shift key when you hit the restore tab. Then choose the lower firmware version you downloaded. Once you have downgraded your firmware, blackra1n is the software you need to unlock and jailbreak it. It is extremely user friendly, and google is your friend to find it free. Remember to back up all of the data on your iphone before tryng any of these proceedures. Good luck!

Power led is blinking after I upgrade firmware


Something went wrong during the upgrade of your firmware. If you were upgrading the firmware from Linksys website you need to call their tech support and have them replace it for you. If you were trying to hack it with a 3rd party firmware you probably need to go buy another one and maybe consider using the firmware it comes with. You cannot restore the device because the flash killed the restore function. Your device is cooked. Put some BBQ sauce on it and serve it for dinner.
