Sounds like you may have some corrupt music on the device.

Try formatting the device thru My Computer.

My Computer>Device Name (e280)>Right Click and select FORMAT.

This will erase everything and you should see all of your space available again.

Best of Luck.

My philips dvdr1000 shows only ab f092as when i am power on

The meaning of specific error codes is known only to Philips themselves, but 'AB' errors are to do with the analogue board circuitry and unfortunately this signals that the machine may require a factory repair. However you have nothing to lose by performing a firmware upgrade, which cured the problem for some.

Make sure you use the correct firmware, depending on whether your machine is a Mk I or II. Note that ff9o is the only firmware you can use for the former.

I m trying to upgrade my HP compaq nc6320 RAM MEMORY from 1GB to 4GB, Do i need BIOS upgrade if yes from were i can find the drivers and how can i do it? thanx i am gone wait for respond......


As far as I know, the machine supports 4GB of ram, so you purchase the ram modules from a pc parts dealer and install them inside the machine, removing the existing ram, there are 2 slots, so you need 2, 2GB cards.

You do not require any drivers or bios update.

Windows will need to be upgraded to 64Bit version if you wish to use the full capacity. as normal windows is limited to 3-3.75GB

Further questions? let me know.
