My internal 80gig drive has crashed (i think). The MPC won't let it boot up, keeps looking for the autoload fie, but eventually boots up. When you look for the disk it see's an EMPTY hard drive but you can't access it, personally I think it's failed to mount. What would the sollution be for this?
You need to buy a replacement drive on ebay or fro seagate.com and if you can try to access your mpc4000 hd with your pc using akaisys...and if you can access the information, then store it on your desktop and when you replace the drive just load all of your info back on to the new drive..dont worry about the o.s. because its still on your mpc..so when you install the new drive and dump the sounds back on it..then your'e as good as new....i just finished the process on mine myself..hope it works out for ya..if not email me back @ email@example.com

Have you loaded sounds for the pads from an internal or external storage device? (Such as CD or Internal Hard Drive, if installed) - each time you turn on the power, the programs are cleared so the pads will not make any noise until you load the sounds you want.
Otherwise, it could be related to your speaker setup?
Provide some details on your system setup and whether you are loading programs etc.
replace all the leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions + IDE,SATA and the ones that attach from your motherboard to hard drive make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty or just replace them they are probably old and faulty ? hope this helps
First you must configure your PC to read your mpc 100 flush card. Just insert the software CD driver of your mpc 100 flush card, if you have the CD. Otherwise, you must have a download from the internet for the software driver.
Sounds like the hard drive either has bad sectors or has corrupted data and it needs to be formatted. If checking for errors or formatting doesn't help, you may need to replace the drive. Depending on the hard drive that is installed, it may be getting to the end of useable life cycle or has damaged sectors and causes the MPC to lock up. It may also be that the controller board on the drive is failing.
Check the drive either with the built in utility or connect it to a computer and use a non destructive test utility like HDD Regenerator that runs from a bootable CD on a PC.
well a hard drive is a logical drive in which windows and all the things you download are stored until the user deletes them, and the pc133 memory is a temporary storage in where when you open something on your desktop in windows it is then stored into your pc-133 memory so you can view it, the more of this you have the faster it will open items on the hard drive, they both pretty much accentuate each other, the more ram you have the faster your hard disk access will be
You could set the sample to "one shot" in the trim page or in the Program>KG Mix>Zone page.... it is currently set to "as sample"... i like to use the release to let the sample fade out as long as i like... its a lot diffrent from the old poly mono thing but i like it better overall... hope this is helpfull.
Dear fixya thank you for replaying to my e-mail about my mpc 4000 problem, and yes after pulling my hair out and further investigation i did fix the problem. i had no audio comming from one of the main outputs and all i did was change that one faulty audio cable and everything was all good. I took the no good cable, tied it in to a knot and dumped it right into the trash can. Now im back to master beatz...
