Question about Alesis MasterLink ML-9600

1 Answer

Upon turning on our Masterlink, it read "LOAD OS".

The mfg suggested a new Harddrive; which I installed. but noticed an electrical short (frying sound). Had electrical problem repaired last week.
Now, the CD drive won't open so I can load the OS.

this is the error I'm getting when I turn on:
FATAL ERROR HD ERROR 178 (then this fades out). but this appears & remains:

HDCD to Reset
HD ERROR 178

I would greatly appreciate some assistance on this.

If you are computer savy, you can disassemble the masterlink and test the cd drive in another computer. if it works, check the power connector to the cd drive. switch it with the hd connector to see if it fires up.


keep use posted.

How to download the OS firmware?


Hi, I'm in the process of restoring a Masterlink, and have just done what you are trying to do. Go to this link:

http://www.alesis.com/masterlink

Read through the materials and then go into "Docs and Downloads" and there you will find the "System Software Update Guide", which explains how to determine which OS version you need based on your serial number, so you can create the ISO disc for the OS you need. I suggest you print it out for easy reference. Then download and unzip the OS files and create your Operating System ISO CD. The instructions are pretty clear so if you're methodical you should have no problems getting up and running soon. Have fun!

How do i remove the hard drive from a hp pavilion a1320n


1) Computer unplugged from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions.

Anti-Static Precautions:
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open.
TOUCH the metal fame of the open computer case to relieve your body of Static.
Also before you take new hardware components out of their anti-static bags, or boxes.

If you leave your computer in the middle of working on it, be SURE to Touch the metal frame again upon your return.


HP Support > Pavilion Media Center a1320n > Opening the computer case

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00593575&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1818050&tmp_track_link=ot_search

Replacing the Harddrive, (Hard Disk drive),

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00639788&cc=us&lc=en&dlc=en&product=1818050&tmp_track_link=ot_search

The Harddrive is a SATA harddrive. Uses a SATA 7-pin data cable, and a 15-pin SATA power cable.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SATA

Top right photo shows the SATA data cable connector, and cable.
Top right photo below it shows a typical SATA data header (Connector) on a motherboard.

Typical SATA power cable, and it's respective connector,

http://www.playtool.com/pages/psuconnectors/connectors.html#sata

NOTE*
IF, your SATA harddrive has a connection for a standard 4-pin Peripheral power cable, (Misnomered as Molex), AND a connection for a SATA power cable, ONLY use the SATA power cable.
It will Burn Up the Harddrive if you use both.

If you are putting a new Harddrive in, you will need to have backed up, (Copied) the info you wish to save off of your old Harddrive, first. This is if the harddrive is not bad, of course.

You will also need the Restoration Disk/s to install a new Harddrive, if you are going to just replace the harddrive with a new one. (Larger, or replacing a bad harddrive)

If you do not have the Restoration Disk/s you can obtain them from HP Support.
In the US call 1-800-474-6836
24hrs a day, 7 days a week.
Disk/s are free. Shipping and handling is not.
$17 for a 5 to 7 day ship, $24 for a 2 to 3 day ship.
Have the Serial Number from the back of your computer tower handy to give to the representative.
(White Service Tag. S/N is Serial Number)

If you are not in the US, here is the Worldwide Support contact page,

http://welcome.hp.com/country/us/en/wwcontact_us.html

If you are going to install a new operating system, per se Windows, (Windows 7?), you may have to go into BIOS Setup, and in Boot Order set the first boot device to CDROM, if the disk does not automatically load.

Masterlink says load OS


go ahead and try it. reload the os. it is avail on the alesis site.
the o.s. may be corrupted and a reflash is what it needs. if the issue persist, the HD may need to be replaced.

you will need to burn an image cd for the masterlink. most cd programs can do this. if you cant, send me an email.

Replacement harddrive into acer pc


No matter what you do, you need to partiton and format the drive and install an OS, be it with the Acer recovery disks or with an original XP install disk. You will need to boot from your CD drive to install the OS, if your drive is not bootable you will need to boot from a floppy and load drivers for the CD drive. For information on how to get these boot floppies check out this Microsoft link:

Masterlink


I tried the "pressing play/pause and record simultaneously" during power
up, and it worked.....dunno for how long. The unit still makes strange
noises occasionally and doesn't seem completely healthy, but it's up
and I'm copying files that I want to save. We'll see.

Would pay for an OS Disc, I am unable to get the download to burn properly


Is this what you want.
Masterlink OS v2.21 For Windows & Mac
MasterLink allows new software to be installed via CD-ROM. If you have a PC or a Mac with a CD-burner, you can download the file below and create an updated CD for your MasterLink.
