Hello Jed1969, i am really greateful, your advice worked properly amd I was thinking that I will throw away the mp3 but now I am glad that it works again. My problem now is now to load, I was asked to use window player 10 to sync music but I have tried but all in vain

    i just changed the battery in mine and got the message saying "Initial Fail {device cannot initialize hdd, please connect to adaptor and try fix"

    i found out i'd dislodged the hdd connector on the main board so i reconnected it and all works fine again.....

    if the music studio software above did not work then undo the 4 screws on the back of your player and take off the back

    than get a stanley knife or another thin tool and lever the hdd out by inserting the knife in only a fraction "because circuit board 10mm back" between the main mp3 player housing and the rubber on the hdd and prise it out....then check the hdd is connected properly to board by pressing lightly on hdd connector....should click if its loose, the click is it inserted correctly.....if not working after checked connector i'd personally remove hdd cable from board then reconnect just in case of a dirty or faulty connection....

    hope you get your problem here if you do....jed

Samsung YH-J70

I had the same problem - the hard drive had failed, which is a common fault. I bought a new one on eBay - a Toshiba MK3006GAL 30GB - which worked fine.

BUT... the drive came completely unformatted and I had to format it on a laptop first as I could not get it to format in the YH-J70. If the drive is FAT32 format, however, you should be OK to just put it in the YH-J70 and format it with Samsung Media Studio.
