Question about Mustek PVR-H140 Digital Media Player

PVR-H140 doesn't work but cannot restore files

After reading some other users I thought I had the same simple problem: the software got corrupt,with only a fixed screen (the PVR light blue and the word "Initialize" in a corner) and then the player turns off. The procedure looked simple: to restore the software connecting the device to the PC and then, replacing the files. But... My PC doesn't recognize the PVR as a USB device. I tried with other two computers (with the PVR software installed) and none recognized the PVR as a device with a HDD inside. I cannot find the way to replace or restore the files.

Any Idea?? :-(

    Sounds just like my player. Stuck on Initialize until I get a HDD error and shuts down. My pc won't recognize it either.

    mine shuts down after initialise. its as if it cant read the hard drive. is there a software solution? It seems to be a very common fault and the unit is useless.

Problem is once the hard drive is corrupted you can't access usb to fix the problem. You have to remove the four screws on the back cover remove the 40gig hard drive. Find a laptop or an ide to usb adapter to reformat the drive. Must be fat32 not ntsf. Then copy all files back onto drive.

Download the zip file, then just copy all the files to the unit, should work fine, don't forget to keep a copy in case you need them again.

My mustek pvr-H140 freezing


Tje pvr-h140 basicall have 3 major components

1- 40 gb hard disk
2- battery pack similiar to the cordless phone battery packs
3- integrated panel with LCD and control buttons; usb port; power port; av in/out port.

when the unit hangs on initialize; this mean the hard disk is not responding. you can hit the recessed reset button and and power it back on. if the hard disk is OK this should clear up the issue.

if the hard disk is bad (crashed) then you need to replace the disk. Usually a fitjitsu 40GB notebook drive

also if the unit was dropped; constantly banged; etc then the cable to the hard disk to the integrated panel may be loose. The disk to cable is pinned and doesn't come loose but the other end of the cable is taped to the integrated panel and can come loose if the unit is not handled properly.

finally if the boot up files are corrupt; then you should be able to see it on the pc with the usb connection.

In this case you need to download and restore the files as discussed in the other solutions. Basically mustek has a website with all the drivers.

Hmm, what software are you using to convert your movie? and do you have the same problem if you copy a movie directly from a DVD? try doing that if you haven't already.

The supplied convertion software is awful, very badly written and a waste of time, I use "Arcsoft MediaConverter" it works well is fast and is just a simple drag & drop interface.

Hi,

Are you trying to restore the files you previously had on your Mustek or just trying to get it to work as it did before the format? If you're just trying to get it to load, follow these instructions:

"Install the PVR Console software in the bundled CD and connect the device to PC. The software will help to restore system data and boot up files to the device automatically. When the copying is done, restart the device for twice."

If you're trying to restore the data you accidentally formatted, connect it to your PC and try using a program such as Free Undelete to restore the files that were previously deleted. In the program, you need to browse to the drive that your Mustek shows up as on your PC (so if the drive is X: you need to restore files on X in the program).

How do you convert video to work on the PVR-H140?


The PVR h140 works on mpeg1 or mpeg4 format. If you need to convert avi files for example you will need a third party conversion programme such as Nero7 or similair free programmes. Check here for a 'how to' page. http://www.sharewareguide.net/article/Guide/guide:how-to-convert-video-to-mpeg4,-such-as-avi-to-mpeg4,-mpeg-to-mpeg4-and-vob-to-mpeg4-with-this-mpeg4-converter.html
