Iriver-395T cannot load any files, indicates bad sectors
My computer just did a diagnostic on my Iriver395T and says it has bad sectors, with 0 bytes available and 0 allocation units available on disk. I am unable to load any files onto it - get a message there is no space available. I unloaded all files that were on it, reformatted it, and still have same problem. The software user interface still works, and it can still play FM radio. I had not been using Music Manager, but was using it like a portable drive to transfer my MP3 files (my own recordings) on and off of it via Windows File Explorer. I am currently using Windows VISTA operating system.

My computer did boot up to the desktop, but was completely unresponsive from there when trying to open anything. I ran a system diagnostics and got this error with the status byte of 70. I rebooted into Safe Mode and was then able to open files. I backed up my stuff to a flash drive and then ran Error-Checking in the HD Properties which runs the CHKDSK function the next time the computer is rebooted. That found 2 bad file clusters and repaired them. One was a file called Windows.edb, which does the hard drive search indexing for Windows and was most likely my problem with the lockups. The other was a Napinsp.dll file. After these were fixed and the computer was rebooted, everything worked normally. This HD is only 9 months old, but if this happens again, I'll replace it again.
It looks like you have two arrays here. The first one being a mirrored RAID array and has only one disk. This means that the other disk has failed in some sort. This does not mean that the drive is bad, just the RAID failed for some reason. You will need to rebuild the RAID if you want to maintain the same level of redundancy.
You can just attempt a rebuild the RAID to the same drives but if this fails you will want to replace the bad drive. In order to do this you will need to make sure you can tell which drive is which. You do not want to mirror the bad drive to the good one.
If attempting a rebuild to the existing drive does not work or is not an option (because the failed drive could really be bad), you will need to determine which physical drive needs to be replaced. You may be able to hot-swap the drive but if you can power things down, that is always safest. Once the new drive is installed, you can rebuild to it and all should be well after that.
The disk-drive on your computer is having problems reading data, i.e., it's about to "die".
Sometimes, i.e., when your wireless is enabled, it's trying to read that part of the Windows software that controls the wireless device from the disk-drive,
When Windows writes a block of data to the disk-drive, it calculates a "check-sum" code, using 'ECC', and writes those bytes as well. When Windows reads a block of data from the disk-drive, it recalculates that "check-sum", and compares it with the ECC bytes that also were read from the disk.
A "mismatch" between the "old" and the "new" ECC indicates that the data has _not_ been correctly read from the "sector" (#6310750) of your disk-drive.
Backup your files, contacts, and E-mails, and replace the disk-drive, as soon as possible.
Most likely, it could be the amount of ram you have in your computer. If your running low on ram and it is using the virtual memory your computer can be running all the time causing a slow down in whatever you do. Check to see how much ram you have :)
question: from your iriver mp3 have you already format it or the files are still inside?
if your reffering old files as files you've accidentally delete from your player. the only way to retrieve the said files is by using a software "filescav" or filescavenger. this software can only retreive files from any removable device if the said device haven't been formated.
but if you only want to get the present files installed in your iriver, i do think that once you connect your iriver to a PC. the PC will search for a newly installed drive which is your player. and once detected you can open the folder of the newly found device and simply copy and paste all the documents and files you want to copy from your mp3 to PC.
note: you can download filescavenger from web free. just type in google bar " filescavenger" and it will show all the possible download site for the said software
Probably a hardware issue, but the issue could also be with your USB port - make sure that there are no yellow exclamations next to the usb port in the PC device manager.
The battery indicator might not be stable during the following activities because they use large amounts of power:
1. The backlight of the LCD 2. Volume change 3. Pressing function keys and buttons 4. Reading the CD or files (Loading data to the memory)
battery indicator shows the life expectancy of the battery based on
current power usage. During these high power usage activities, that may
only last a few seconds, the indicator will obviously show a lower
level on the battery indicator. Once the high power activity has ended
it will show a more accurate battery level.
