Question about Fostex Computers & Internet

Open Question

PD6 upgrade read about this a couple years ago... My understanding was that the main drive is some sort of Fostex proprietary format. The DVD-RAM is the only true UDF volume, and that is what you can not mount the main drive via the firewire. I've read of people trying to convert the DVD-RAM drive to a CF drive, but it never went anywhere. It seems in order to make it work, it would require a firmware that allowed the CF card. Its too bad Fostex didnt work harder to keep this unit in the game. I'd pay for an upgrade to CF in an instant.

SOURCE: CF Card Error

Well there is a known problem witht eh CF memory design, i hope this is not your problem but it may be. Take your camera into a well lit area or get a small flash light. Open the memory door and peek down inside the camera and look at the pins inside the camera. Are they all uniform? does any look bent or out of place? there should be 2 uniform rows no pins should be missing or out of place. If they are you have a connection problem. This is one of the issues with this memory format and its why they have changed the design to SD. This is common with people who remove the cards alot and use a reader over time the card and the slot becomes warn and its very easy to bend pins because the card isnt sliding in smooth. If this is your problem (a few bent pins) you may have to take it in for service or try and fix it yourself. Ive read about people using a mechanical pencil. Remove the lead and the pin slips right into the top and you can carefuly move it back. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: my 3com officeconnect doesn't work after upgrding the firmware

Are you able to login to the router? If you can reset the router to factory defaults..If you can't login to the router...Is there an external reset button on the router you could try to reset. with a paperclip? Otherwise, I had this happen on a linksys router/switch. New router time. You should just return it where you purchased the product. There was already something seemingly going wrong if it was rebooting. 3 weeks? just return it. don't even mention the firmware update. Here is the site info for 3com: http://knowledgebase.3com.com/ OfficeConnect - Firmware upgrade fails with incorrect user interface image Problem: Incorrect user interface image Problem: Firmware upgrade fails Problem: Error when upgrading firmware Problem: Incorrect firmware Problem: Wrong firmware Fact: Firmware Fact: Download Fact: Update Fact: Upgrade Cause: The downloaded .exe has not been extracted Fix: The downloaded .exe needs to be extracted by double clicking on it. When performing the firmware update use the extracted files that were obtained from the "exe" file. e.g You will obtain a "bin" or "dlf" type of file which is the firmware required for your upgrade. Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim

SOURCE: firmware upgrade

Only 2 things to try

1. try formatting the player again
2. try upgrading the firmware again

if no luck then it will have to be returned for fixing. There are warnings about not completing the upgrade process. Don't mention the above when returning it for repair under warranty.

SOURCE: want to upgrade firmware version 9.1.52

MP3 XINTAI Firmware. Please pass it to the other repliers at the forum, or anyone who needs it.

Hi pals.

At last!, I've backed-up the firmware for Xintai MP3 Player from Wilson Co. Ltd., and put it here:

http://www.paginasprodigy.com.mx/darkwing/Xintai9152_Wilson.zip

Don't worry cause one of the files (at UI30.RES) has an incorrect checksum. It's due to prior edit on ASCII labels.

I couldn't say it is really the firmware you want, so you must check and verify thoroughly before proceed.

Please note:
1.- Do not update or reload firmware if your player is working fine (more or less).
2.- If this firmware is not EXACTLY the same version, for the same chipset, there's no guarantee. The player could not work or, even worst, could suffer defintive damage.
3.- It's highly recommendable you BACKUP the existent firmware, despite damage suspects.
4.- To backup and/or restore firmware for this player, you can use "S1res" Ver 4.1, downloadable at:

http://www.s1mp3.de/tools.s1res.html

For restoring firmware, you can also use the "Player Upgrade Tool" Ver 4.18 or superior (part of "MP3 Player Utilities"), downloadable at:

http://www.mympxplayer.org

Enjoy your music.

Wd external hard drive


Hi Regin, I used to have a WD drive and one day I started having all sorts of formatting issues. The WD was very sensitive and then a week or so later, it started making clicking noises, and then a day later it died.
I returned it and got a new WD but in less than 8 months, I lost all my data again! I never bothered asking WD for a new one, and used it as a door stopper for a year or more! Eventually, I threw it away about a year ago.
I recently read that someone whose WD drive crashed threw it in the freezer and left it there for a couple days and then it was fine!!! I am telling you the truth, i read that here on FixYa!
In any case, be care, be tender. Dont think that just because you have a back up drive that you are protected! My experience suggests that there is something wrong with a number of WD drives! We should all get our money bacK!
I would use another kind of back up system, personally.

My panasonic dmr-es35v dvd player will not operate, It goes into a 'no read' mode also will not go into a stand-by mode


The 'No Read' error is the DVD-RAM drive - the laser and/or spindle motor assembly has failed. As for standby mode not working, that would be an issue with the main microprocessor on the motherboard which could be expensive to replace (manufacturers no longer provide individual components; they provide exchange boards if available), making the unit virtually uneconomical to fix. The cost of a replacement DVD drive could cost anywhere between $150 and $400 plus fitting and firmware upgrade/reset.

The 'lock-out' you describe, would probably be an issue between the PSU and the main microprocessor (as mentioned above). Because you also had a 'No Read' error from the DVD, this unit, sadly, is not really worth fixing - BUT, you can always take it to a service centre, to get a quote and second opinion on likely cost(s) involved, at least then you can make a positive decision afterwards as to whether you want to go further with it or not. Up to you.

When you add it all up, you may find the total cost(s) to restore this unit to original working condition (if that's possible) may exceed the price of a new unit which can do the same thing this one did when it was new around 4 or 5 years ago. You have too many faults with this one.

Whichever is cheaper and easier for you - don't waste money on repairs if the quote you get is too high - buy a new (or refurbished) one with (optional) extended warranty and/or extra features - but only as a last resort, and keep this unit's remote if you do.

My Panasonic E55 is having problems reading disks after I try to erase something on them. I erase without success and then it tells me the disk is unformatted. Also will not format disk after that. I...


Sorry this isn't a solution, but I just want to commiserate with you. I am having the same problem. I guess the problem started about three weeks ago. The recorder will not recognize any blank DVD-R discs and it only recognized 1 out of 4 new DVD-RAM discs. It would read most of my older DVD-RAM discs but would refuse to erase some of the old recorded programming. It also refused to recognize some of the older DVD-RAM discs, so in frustration I reformatted one. I was able to record and watch a couple of shows, but now it is saying "Unformat" for that disc.
About a year ago, the DVR gave ma some trouble and I was able to fix it myself. (I think it suddenly wouldn't power on, but I don't really remember if it was that or if it was a "SELFCHECK" error.) I had to open up the case and replace two capacitors. I bought the replacements at Radio Shack and my son helped me solder them on. My next step with this DVR will be to open up the case and look for any obvious problems. The worn-out capacitors looked oily and damaged, as I recall.

How to forat the hard drive


Good day sir, hi, lets review first some of the reasons why windows xp cannot be installed on your PC, here are the possibilities :
  1. Your Windows XP CD is scratched beyoned readable. You will get prompts for missing files or files that can't be read on the CD. Get a good copy of windows XP.
  2. A memory module (ram) or some are defective, you get the blue screen with all sorts of warnings and data you can't understand and numbers you don't know. Check your ram modules. To be sure have it tested on another PC. If bad, replace it.
  3. Your memory should be aleast 128 mb or more for windows XP to install properly.
  4. Your CD/DVD drive is bad or selective of the CDs it reads, you may need to check the drive.
  5. your hard drive is bad, or has to much bad sectors near the boot area, where windows install its system and boot files, you have no choice but to replace it with a new one, or else you cannot format the old one no matter how.
Thats it, if I miss something, let me know, send me error messages to diagnose it properly.

DVD is not being detected by combo drive


Hi Imran,
Sadly this is a fairly common problem with combo drives. In all likelihood, it will cost you more to have the drive repaired than to replace it.
I will suggest purchasing a dvd writer to replace the combo drive.
They are fairly inexpensive.
Regards,
Graemevm

Failure to accept DvD Ram discs in a Panasonic DMR-E55 Recorder


Possibilities are that the laser lens needs cleaning (use a proprietary cleaning disc) or that - as long as you are sure you have original manufacturers' discs and not fakes - the discs are scratched or dirty.
