Question about Philips HDD1630 MP3 Player
Install and run Device Manager from the product CD.
Select the repair option, and follow the on-screen prompts.
NOTE: ALL FILES LOADED ON TO THE PLAYER WILL BE LOST.
If this doesn't work then it may be that the hard disk is faulty. There is an easy way to find out. The following procedure allows the player to connect to the PC as a removable drive. If the Pc reads the drive, then the drive is ok.
Connect the HDD1630 to the mains adaptor and the PC.
Before the computer has a chance to recognise the player, press "Power" and "Vol +" to reset the player.
As soon as the player resets (screen goes blank) press and hold "Vol -" until the PC recognises the player as a removable drive.
Try to access the player through "My Computer" as you would the main hard disk.
CLICKING HARD DISK is usually a sign of a problem with the hard disk. If this is the case it will have to be replaced.
The HDD16X0 series use a standard 6Gb Microdrive which are readily available, and much cheaper than the official Philips replacement. The new drive would need to be "Repaired" using the Philips Device Manager.
