My sony walkman nwz b133f(b) wont start. when on, it says boot error... what should i do? do u have the firmware availble that i can download myself?


I had the same problem but i solved it.
Follow the folliwing steps.
1- Download firmware nwz-b133f (firmware nwz-b130 V-1.01)
2- Download firmware nwz-b103 (firmware nwz-b100 V-1.3)
3- First execute firmware nwz-b100 , connect your walkman when the programm
asks: please connect device. Then the program ask format your device
you will loose all the data , click accept.
4- Don´t disconnect your device , wait until format and dataload are finished.
This is necesary because firmware nwz-b130 doesn´t do the format.
5- Disconnect your walkman and you will see it doesn´t start (logical it ain´t his
firmware)
6- Now execute firmware nwz-b130 , connect your walkman when the programm
asks: please connect device. Don´t disconnect your walkman wait until program ends.
7- When finished disconnect your walkman the save way.
8- Ready like new.

Sony Handycam DVD 650 - After recording on a disk and the disk is full, it went to a screen that is locked. It says "Formatting Start" and only offers formatting issues. I do not want to format as it...


Dear Sir,
Yes you are right, lots and lots have lost very nice recordings on these silly CD and Hard-Drive cameras, and with so many people having problems I hope Sony go back to the 8mm takes because some recordings we all like to make mean too much for us to just re-format over them.
While your CD is in your camera press the reset button, that puts menu back and camera like new, your disk will pop out okay that way.
I do think though that you should try to pick up a good Sony 8mm camera for those important movies, that way you know you always will have them.

I have sansa sandisk e 260. last time, after charging it in my computer, i plug it out without having safety mode in the computer. After then i can not open my disk. when i try to turn on pressing on Menu...


1. Download the Sansa firmware.

2. Turn the player off.

3. On the top of the player is a Hold switch located.
Move it to the right so you see "Orange".

4. On the left hand side of the player is a Record button.
Press and hold the record button while connecting the player to the computer.
Continue holding the Record button until you see a new icon under "My Computer": named "16MB FORMAT".
Once you see that icon release the Record button.

5. Drag and drop the download firmware files to your player (16MB FORMAT).

6. Disconnect the player from USB cable.
Several things will be displayed.
When you see Key Lock, System Shutdown, move the Hold switch on the top back to the left.

Otherwise download the Sansa Updater and start follow the points 2-4 and start the Sansa Updater.
After updating the firmware follow point 6.

Recording (toshiba dvr player se-r0265


Number SE-R0265 is not a Player. It is the model number of the Remote Control for a player.

However, your question is somewhat generic for all Player/Recorders. First you must use good original manufactures DVD media for recording. TY (Taiyo Yuden) is the Toshiba recommended media in many of its manuals. Verbatim and Fuji are also very good. They are more expensive, but very much worth the extra cost in reliability and headaches. Also, some older recorders will have trouble recording/playing back/finalizing newer 8X or 16X faster media. Try to by 4X and slower media if you are having problems, even with the three recommended above.

Second, DVD-R or R/W media has to be 'Finalized' before it can play on other recorders. DVD media do not. Try using DVD media if you continue to have trouble. Also, there are two recording/format types you can choose to record with on your DVDR Recorder, Video and VR, on -R/W media. Video is automatic Video format only on DVD media and do not need to be formatted (I think) before use or finalized after done recording.
If you are still having trouble using -R/W DVDs on other players, Try DVD DVDs in Video Format.

Finally, Toshiba is know for DVD media sensitivity. Many of their recorders have Firmware upgrades. Be sure you have the latest by looking in your manual to find your Firmware Version, then check out Toshiba's support site for any upgrades. But, start with good media, finalizing -R/W media, using Video disc format, then using DVD media, in this order.

R-09 broken, don't know where I can repair one fast in UK


Hi Igor,

You have probably long since either had your Edirol repaired or found a replacement. If the latter situation is the case, and you have your R-09 sitting around collecting dust, I might be able to help. The buttons likely did not fall off, but were pushed back into the unit. Try opening it up by unscrewing it from the bottom (First open the battery cap) and carefully opening it up. You'll lkely find the buttons pushed back into it.

I learned this after a friend dropped mine at my wedding. Determined, I set out to fix it.

Good luck to you or anyone else reading this post,

Will not initalize any disk.


A firmware upgrade is available here:

http://r00.liteonit.com.tw/DC/english/download/index.asp

You'll need to have a blank CD and a CD/DVD writer in the PC you use to download the file.

Follow the instructions on the website to upgrade your firmware, this should then allow you to write to DVD's once again.

Doesn't recognize disks anymore


This is a common problem with the Lite-on LVW range of DVD recorders due to changes in the construction of more recent DVD R media. It can be solved with a relatively simple firmware upgrade.
