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.. ;)

    I AM NOT TALKING ABOUT YOUR AVERAGE CRAP OFF THE SHELF DELL PC, I'M ON ABOUT A PRO PIECE OF KIT USED IN MUSIC PRODUCTION NOT A HOME PC.


    I think you didn't even read the original posting correctly.

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

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 insert my falsh drive into my mpc 1000 and i


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.

My mpc hard drive freezes


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.

Cheers and good luck.

Installing a 120GB HD kit into my mpc 1000 or RAM


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
