I need to fix the direct drive record player on my Electro Brand Retro Cd Am/fm With Turntable 45rpm, 78rpm, Built - In Speakers Model 9263, I dont have the manual and can not find it online.

Are you certain it's a direct drive model, because DD models with 78 speed are not common at all? If it is a DD model then you need to check that power is getting to the motor. There could be a switch that's not turning it on somewhere inside the unit.

I have installed ubuntu on my iMac as I couldnt install windows or boot Mac os I have a external drive that has Mac os and recovery partion but I can't boot with it but in ubuntu j can read the disk I...

You could copy the contents from the external drive to the internal one. Boot from an external CD or DVD with the Ubuntu installation image on it. Doing so will allow you to write over the internal drive. Learn the dd command (start with "man dd" from your Ubuntu terminal window. An example might be "dd if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sda"

"if" is short for "input file", but can represent the whole device (drive), which is what you want. "of" is short for "output file". You can use Ubuntu's Disk Utility to examine all your drives and figure out which one is which.

This is a very powerful command and nothing else I can think of can wipe out a disk you meant to keep any faster or more thoroughly, so be very sure you figure out which (sda sdb, and so on) is input and which is output. The "dd" command produces no output until it's done, just quietly working away on gigabytes as ordered.

Ps3 hardrive corrupt and fails to recover


What you will need:

  1. Bad PS3 hard drive
  2. New hard drive of equal or larger size
  3. SATA to USB cable or a spare USB enclosure
  4. Copy of 'dd' for the OS of your choice
    • (Linux and OS X users should have it by default, Windows users can get it here)
  5. Time, patience, and a desire to recover your data

The process:
  1. Remove bad drive from the PS3
  2. Connect bad drive to a computer that has enough free space as the size of your drive
  3. Make a backup image using 'dd'
    • WARNING! You should be able to do this without having administrator/root/superuser rights. However, if for some reason you have to do this with admin/root/su rights, PLEASE, quadruple check what you type and make sure you have the correct paths. It is entirely possible to completely ruin a system install if you overwrite your computer's main hard drive and 'dd' will do this without blinking an eye if you tell it to.

    • The command I used was
      • dd bs=10M if=*path_to_your_ps3_hdd* of=*path_to_ps3_save*ps3_save.dd
    • Where *path_to_your_ps3_hdd* is the full path to the bad drive and *path_to_ps3_save* is the full path to where you want the backup image to be stored.

    • For example, I would've used
      • dd bs=10M if=/dev/sdb of=~/OMGPLZWORK/ps3_save.dd
    • As a Linux user "/dev/sdb" was the path to the bad drive when connected via the USB adapter and "~/OMGPLZWORK/" was the path to where I wanted to save the image.
    • Note that you DO NOT want to specify a partition number (/dev/sdb1) as you want to image the whole drive. There probably won't be a partition number, but just in case.

    • If you are a Windows user the command would look something like this
      • dd bs=10M if=\\.\e: of=c:\OMGPLZWORK\ps3_save.dd
    • Note that dd for windows requires "\\.\" before the drive letter.
    • Please read the "dd for windows" website if you are at all confused.

    • And for OS X users it would be something like this
      • dd bs=10M if=/dev/disk2 of=~/OMGPLZWORK/ps3_save.dd
    • As with Linux, you DO NOT want to specify a partition number (/dev/disk2s1) if there is one.
    • Note: '~' is a shortcut to your home directory.

    • Linux and OS X users (and I suppose Windows users too, if you wanted to install gzip, but I won't cover that) can use a variant of that command that will compress the image as it's created
      • dd bs=10M if=*path_to_your_ps3_hdd* ' gzip -9 > *path_to_ps3_save*ps3_save.gz
    • This will not compress the image much, as it will only compress free space on the drive, but it took my 320 gigabyte drive to around 260 gigabytes.
  4. Connect new drive to the same computer
  5. Restore image using 'dd'
    • The command to use is
      • dd bs=10M of=*path_to_your_ps3_hdd* if=*path_to_ps3_save*ps3_save.dd
    • or if you chose to compress the image
      • gunzip -c *path_to_ps3_save*ps3_save.gz ' dd bs=10M of=*path_to_your_ps3_hdd*
  6. Install new drive into the PS3
  7. Boot up the PS3 and let it attempt to restore
Note: If you have the available hardware, there's no reason you couldn't just 'dd' the data from the bad drive directly to the new drive.If you wanted to do that the command would be
  • dd bs=10M if=*path_to_your_bad_ps3_hdd* of=*path_to_your_good_ps3_hdd*
For example
  • dd bs=10M if=/dev/sdb of=/dev/sdc
If you choose to do this, you run the risk of writing the new drive over your bad drive if you have a typo (even if you're not running with admin/root/su rights!), so quadruple check the command and paths before executing.

If all goes well your PS3 should be back up and running with little data loss. However there is NO guarantee that this will work for you. If you're like me, though, it's worth a shot and you never know, it just might work.

Not having a whole lot of information to review, it might be easier to just replace the CD drive. You can also upgrade the drive to a DVD writer while you are at it.

Hard disk replacement for lacie ethernet disk mini 250 gb

I managed to fix mine with a little bit of work.
This website has a readme file that specifies the partitions. You must be using Linux.

1. Plug the drive in a Linux computer, or use a Linux Live disk.
2. Create all the partitions according to the readme file. Use extended partition for the first "container". Linux Swap for the second partition. Use Ext3 format for the remaining.
3. Extract all the SDA6-8 files with bzip.
4. Use "dd" command to write those images to partitions sda6 - sda8 which you just created with this command: dd if=/dev/home/ubuntu/sda6 of=/dev/sda6 bs=512
5. Substitude /home/ubuntu above for the location where you placed the image files.
6. Once all 3 images have been written, the drive should be good to go. Put it back in the edmini, start it up and see if the website comes up. You may have the "format" the drive from the admin utility once its up and going.

Hope this helps.

use the "dd" command in
