Question about Freecom MediaPlayer-3 Digital Media Player

1 Answer

I installed a 3.5 IDE seagate barracuda 400gb HD into the Freecom. I followed the formatting instructions and did the partition steps, I could only format in NTCS, no FAT32 available as Windows XP. I got a drive letter assigned and sent movies to the HD. I can see the movies on the HD. When the machine is plugged into the TV there is no HDD icon lit only the wireless icon is lit. The HDD light is on on the front of the machine and I can hear the discs turning - what am I missing, I have tried re-formatting again and again but the machine refuses to light the HDD icon. Thanks

How do i set a seagate barracuda 7200 hd to slave


you don't need to setup as a Slave drive like IDE drives. You simply install the new SATA drive on an open port and follow the steps in this thread to format the hard drive. This will allow the hard drive to be used as a storage drive or whatever you plan to use it for.

Can i just hook it up and run the disk wizard? or is there another formatting ,partitioning tool I should get?


Use Disk Wizard. No 3rd party tools are required at all.

Scenario: 1 Pipeline SATA. 1 Barracuda SATA. 1 IDE drive with current OS. Is this correct?
Just treat the Pipeline from the DVR as an extra drive by formatting it, and moving the files over. You then can remove the IDE and Pipeline for peace of mind, but the OS advance setup should give the option of all three drives for install destination.


Leaving the IDE drive should not affect your resources.

Hi,
Seems like your hard drive is malfunctioning, try another HD. That 80gb is already obsolete and the circuit board might have some defect.
If you could pull out the underside circuit and clean the gold contact points and try it again, if still not working...... buy a new one!
Check also the jumper and cable it must be in the "master" configuration.

Hope that helps you out!
Thanks for asking FixYa!

Trying to make my seagate barracuda 7200.9 slave


1) Open your computer case
2) On the back of the drive where the connectors are, you have jumpers. These small plastic tabs change the function of your hard drive. All hard drives have a special setup procedure. The information about jumper settings is on the top of the hard drive.
3) Remove plastic tabs and put them according to "Slave" instructions.
4) Connect drive to middle connector of the cord.
5) Connect power supply cord.
6) Secure the drive in place and close computer case.

Also make sure that the main drive is not set as slave.

Wrong format on drive


If you want to save your data first you'll need to back up the drive. Go to seagate.com and download Discwizard and it's instructions. Follow the instructions and you'll be able to make the drive any size you want up to it's limit.

I just upgraded my hard drive to 400gb seagate barracuda HDD, and i wanted to install new Os on it, but for some reason my PC is not able to find this drive to load files in it, i checked BIOS either it...


Ok, an old trick, hook the drive up, via a USB, dongle, and Format it with that Windows, Operating System. return the Drive to the laptop, and you'll now be able to "See" it. A Drive must be Partitioned and Formatted, before it can be used. .You can do this with a Windows install DVD. Or say Partition Magic, or similar. A gret tool is a CD called Ultimate Boot CD, download link below, download and burn a copy, this will allow you to do anything you wish, there are numerous "Tools" and things to resurrect PC's.

If it is all jumpered and, the software still will not see it, & you still cannot access it, then it must be faulty

Seagate barracuda7200.9 80 gig.


Some of the following answer assumes a windows operating or possibly DOS based operating system. If your original OS was not Windows or DOS -- there may be different considerations.

1) Did you lose the contents of both partitions?
That depends were they soft or hard partitions.
Soft partitions are created as files inside of other partitions
If that is what you had allocated in the formatted partition
you have lost their data content.
Hard or physical partitions allocated using FDISK and some other utilities the second partition would still exist.

2) Where are/were your system files. Often but not always they appear as the first partition of the master drive on the primary IDE controller all assuming a PC (based on the master slave comments you have indicated.) (sometimes the second when diagnostics are loaded on the first partition)

a) if the partition on the drive you formated contained the system files yes they must be installed to access anything on the disk for the most part. A significant exception may be utilization of a DOS boot diskette might permit DOS access to the other partitions if they are formatted with the FAT file system.

NTFS partitions and possibly FAT32 partitions may not be accessible to all versions of DOS -- there may be some bootable CD's that would allow access to NTFS partitions without installing an operating system.

Question back from the DOS and older version of windows days and even some more modern operating systens in subsequent actions with the disk did you use FDISK or another utility to rewrite the boot blocks to point to a different partition?

Question this was not a dual boot machine was it?-- if so disregard anything that follows.

Question did the machine boot after formatting the partition and before you started moving the drives around? If so the operating system is probably on a drive you have removed from the machine. It needs to be replaced onto the same cable position it was originally located upon -- probably on the Primary IDE cable master position or jumper setting.

If not reinstallation of the operating to the formatted partition is probably the correct next step. Be careful in doing this because if you choose one of the other partitions that were not formatted it could wipe out the data in them based on the installation process chosen.
