Akai MPC 400 Plus Drive Crash

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?
HEELP!!!

TIA.. ;)

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 @ sdr_recordz_ca@yahoo.com

How do you wipe out everything and put back regular settings on the mpc 2500


from the akai forums:


to set the os back to factory settings press and hold the erase key till the mpc has booted to the main screen.

to erase the harddisk goto either the load or save screen and then choose utility - there you will find the option to format the hdd.

you can also format the drive (or any inserted compact flash-card) from your computer thru the usb connection, but it is recommended to use the internal format because the mpc can be a little picky when you format it from the outside.

at first i would check if there is any folder or the internal memory is set to autoload and just turn that of or point it to another folder of you choice. that way you can keep the factory delivered sounds. maybe you want to use them later, even if it is just to explore the mpc. the factory sounds can be also downloaded later, but be advised that there are different iterations of the stock sounds, depending on whether your mpc shiped with a 32 or 128mb compact flash card.

also the mpc os is not on the harddrive but in the internal memory. to check the version hit mode-> pad10. latest official version is os 1.24. if your main srceen looks different than in the manual check double and triple before you do anything, because the previous owner might have installed the third party jj os which comes in different versions. some of them cost a lot of money! if you find this check the other forum here for the alternative os.

I can't hear any sounds in my mpc 4000


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.

I purchased an akai mpc 2500 used and it came with sounds and sequences all ready occupied, how do I delete all these sounds, or restore its factorys settings?


Try holding erase while you turn it on. You may have to turn off autoload also. You'll have to read the manual first ( pages 110 and 114 especially ) available here:http://www.mpcsounds.com/download_akai_mpc_manual.php It depends I think on whether the previous user saved to memory card or the internal HD.
