INOi MH-720 problem

Hi, I have an INOi MH-720 wich I have used for a few months. I had the unit previosuly on the FAT32 system and decided to convert it to NTFS. Since I had big files on the disk I used the "convert h: /FS:NTFS" command on the cmd on windows xp. The conversion process was succesfull and it has no problem when connecting to any pc. But now everytime I attempt to connect my media drive to use the av playback function it starts but gives me a no disk screen and stays like that.
The drive is running on basic disk type and just has the primary partition

so my questions are:

- is there a solution to this issue?

- is there a solution to this issue that doesnt require a full format of my drive?

thanks in advance

    I've owned an iNOI MH-720 for about a year. A few days ago the video output died. The unit turns on, the hard drive spins, and the unit responds to signals from the IR remote control but there is no video from the component or composite outputs.

    I have tried several times of formating the drive different ways. Computer sees the drive fine as NTFS but the media player never pulled up a directory listing. When formated Fat32 always worked fine. Have searched internet several times still empty handed.

Convert ntfs to fat32


Hi,

First of all delete the partition that you wish to convert. This is done by going into Disk Management: right click on My Computer > Manage > Disk Management, which is found under the Storage section. Right click the partition you wish to remove, and click Delete Volume This will erase the partition. Once you have done this, you must re-create the partition. This is done by right clicking on an unallocated region of a disk, and selecting Create Partition. Then click Create Logical Drive. Bear in mind that Windows cannot format a FAT32 partition that is any larger than 32GB. This is the case because FAT32 is terribly inefficient on volumes that are larger than 32GB: fragmentation becomes a serious problem.

Or you can use partition magic software to convert it.

You can convert FAT32 to NTFS, but you cannot reverse this process. If you want to set up the hard drive for FAT32 you need to delete the NTFS partition the create a new partition and then format in FAT32.

My 1.5 tb mybook has been formatted to fat32, and i cant watch movies on my ps3 no more loads up files really slow even freezes. Also disappears on my laptop sometimes then reappears. But transfers and...


FAT32 was the file type used for the early Windows operating systems. With the release of Windows NT and XP it switched to NTFS file system. FAT32 is still used however to transfer data between Mac and PC. The downside of FAT32 is the files read slower and file size cannot exceed 4GB. If you do not use a Mac I would suggest using the Disk Management utility in Control Panel under Computer Management to convert it to NTFS.

In the setup I defined the Video to 720, and now I cant see anything on the TV, can you help me restoring the settings?


One way to do it is shut the system down by the button on your tower and bring it back in safe mode. Do a system restore back to when it was working.

Firelite 49 GB is no longer recognized by my PS3


hi,
it's cause when you formatted the disk, you choose to use ntfs file system and ps3 can only read fat32.
when you format a hard disk or eaven a usb drive you can choose wich fort to use.
there are different tipe, most common are fat, fat32, and ntfs.
most actula operating system uses ntfs, but fat32 is still he more compatible.
reformat your hard drive as follow:
got to "my computer" on your desktop, right click on your hard drive and choose format.
a window should pop up.
under file system chose fat32.
leave untouched all other fields.
you could perform a quick format, but i suggest a full complete format, so leave all untouched and wait till end.
now it should work.
regards,
Paolo.

320 GB Inoi media hard drive will not play on TV


Make sure you are using the original composite cable and check the connections.
If you are using a SCART cable check the connections.
Also make sure the remote control is responding to media player.
Check the drive responds when you press the “STANDBY” button on the remote.
If the drive responds then the remote is working fine. If not change the battery and see whether it helps.

Also try on another TV and see whether it works. If not back up all the data on the drive and format it and see whether it helps.

All the best!
