Your computer cannot find The Hard-drive Or operating System.
Your Primary Hard Drive, is reporting an error.
Try changing the Jumper setting on this From Master To slave.
( jumper is amall plastic Block ) on back of drive.
Then set your CD/DVD To Master.

What is wrong with my CD player?

Great player. Although the manual does not say a thing about this error, I'll try.
I think you use normal CD's and not disks you or someone burned for you.
The only thing I can think of is the CD must be dirty to scratched.
Or if you try to play disks, burned in a PC, that could cause trouble too. Although all CD and DVD burners in a PC, can play these disks, not all CD players can. Only the ones where the manufacturer says the drive is compatible with CD-R and or CD-RW.
A normal CD has metal as a reflector and gives a clear image from the ones and zeros on the disk. CD-R and CD-RV only have a dye on which a laser has changed the colour. Not giving a clear distinction between ones and zeros. The better CD players, have a stable motor and so on, but the laser is not set up for the dye disks. And although sometimes a disk can be played, for the player it looks lie a "dirty" disk.
I hope this helps.
If not, perhaps you should clean the laser, with a special cleaning disk. DONT open the player and DONT touch the laser.

Ples help me to download mp3 because i dont now how..

The Wave/PC system comes with a remote and connects to your computer through the serial port. The Wave/PC doesn't download MP3 files internally, it only needs to draw an audio feed letting your computer handle the storage and Net access requirements. Minimum requirements for the unit is a Windows 98 machine with a 200 MHz processor, 32 MB of RAM and 200 MB of available hard drive space. The unit does not support Windows 95 or NT.

I have a RCA RP3013 for Christmas, and it was working great till today, now the call numbers are all wacky on the radio and it won't play my CD's HELP!!!

This indicates a massive failure in the processor controller ic, the only thing you can try, unplug the power cord from the receptacle and leave overnight in an attempt to reset the processor. If this fails and there is no change it must go back where it was purchased for exchange.

Gemnini cdj20 will not reconize cd. sometime it will play and than just stop. I change cd but it won't ever spin.

Consult the manual, find a cd rom with the exact same specs and take a screw driver and a pair of tweezers to the damn thing. you can do it, don't worry.

Gemini CDJ02 - Pitch Control Slider Stuck @ 0% The Pitch Control Slider will pitch down all the way but sometimes it will randomly change pitch and most the time wont pitch-up past 0.1-0%. This happens on...

Your pitch control is faulty or dry. Try spraying wd 40 into the pitch sliding hole form top to bottom. Dont over spray it. Just a bit from top to bottom will do. If issue still persists, then there's some capacitors are weak which controls this pitch.

Sony LH500

I have emailed Sony with the same question, and they say there is no way of backing up the LH500 HDD, so if breaks down thats it! I've just plugged an Ipod into my stereo system - far better.

Skipping and Jumping

try CLEANING THE LASER FOCAL LENS with a cotton bus and windex. use a dry fresh one to remove any film after cleaning. IF problem persists, run machine on its end when mistracking occurs(may be hard if yo doing a gig). If the mistracking stops(because the top bearing in the motor is worn) then it may require a new spindle motor. A double check for worn bearings is a drop of 3 in 1 oil to the top bearing of the motor. If the mistracking stops, REPLACE MOTOR. Oiling it is just a short term solution and it will fail again.
If its not the spindle motor, you may need to REPLACE LASER ASSEMBLY I would do both for a commercial unit that does gigs. Where possible i also check the price of a COMPLETE NEW TRANSPORT. This way you get fresh load belts and tracking drive assly too. At any time replacing the laser, remember to check for(and remove) a solder short circuit across the laser diode to protect it from damage by electrostatic discharge. Do this after you have installed the loom if possible. And of course work electrostatic safe, at least GET A WRIST BAND while you are getting the spares.
