My INOI also has the same problem. It says "PARTITION ERROR" when I turn on (using the USB drive plugged into the computer). Upon reading and researching on the Internet, I feel that the battery inside may be weak for startup. Looks like installing a new battery would help ??

I have what I think is an Inoi Sata multimedia hDD ( Square aluiminum case) .I have connected it to a Windows 7 computer and has failed to be recocognised. Where do I find suitable drivers thanks


you should not need drivers for that all, windows should be able to recognize it.

These things usually need an external power supply, first check if it is connected.

Try it with a different computer. If it works then I suggest a system restore on the other comp.
If it doesn't work (which is likely) then you should take apart the metal case, remove the HDD (which is a totally standard desktop HDD) and plug it inside the comp with the SATA port. Windows then will correct the disk errr upon turning on. If it doesn't work this way either then it's dead. If it works flawlessly, but when put back into the case it doesn't wok again then the housing is faulty.

Good luck!

My inoi 500gb hard drive wont work: on the pc its recognising the usb but not showing up. on the tv its saying no disc. i know its a hard disc fault but is there anything i can do since the...

I am a little puzzled (from Manchester). I think you are saying that this drive is an external drive powered by usb connection to your pc. If this is so, have you tried it on another pc? I assume you are getting the "USB Device not recognised" message when plugged in. Try plugging it into the usb ports on the backplate (if it is a tower pc that is). If all else fails then try and download a linux (ubunto) distro and burn to dvd. Boot your pc from the cd and linux will appear as your desktop. now plug in your drive and if it opens ok then copy the contents to your original drive in the pc. If all goes well you can then delete the partition on the usb drive and when back into windows you can format the drive and if lucky you can copy back the pics back onto it. If this does not work then the drive is shafted. The only way to get the data from it is to give it to a data recovery company who will charge the earth but at least you will have the pics.

Good luck

This is caused by a defective hard drive. Possible reason is dropping the player. You need to change the hard drive to make it work again. You need a 1.5" (20GB) hard drive.

Remote won't connect with the 320gb Inoi media player

Can you please tell me, whether the drive responds when you press the “STANDBY” button on the remote?
If the drive responds then the remote is working fine and the actual unit is faulty. If the drive does not respond then the remote is faulty. You need to buy or get a replacement from the seller.

All the best!

Inoi MP3

I have the same problem, sometimes, if I plug it up to the computer, with usb port and press the computer option, keep pluging and unpluging over and over it will reset and starts working again. But it still fails, It may have something to do with the internal battery being weak. Even thought it shows charged, may not be able to supply the current required to start the hard drive.
