apologies if this message finds you long after posting this problem ,
but I am currently working through a backlog of problems that never got
answered and hopefully this info can still be of use if not now possibly
Please download Disc Digger HERE.
This is a free tool you can use that works very well and there is no
installation required, just run the program once you downloaded it.
you have connected the memory disk / hdd to the computer , run the program.
the program , select the dig deep option for accidentally deleted files
or dig deeper for a formatted drive. Then select the disk you want to do
the recovery on and run the program.
The data will be displayed
and you can recover it from there. This will only work if the card has
not been used since the data was lost. Save the files to a location
on the computer hard drive and not back to the disk it is recovering from as this will
overwrite the other pictures that still needs to be recovered.
Some of the properties of the files may become lost in the recovery but the pictures should be fine.
You will also only be able to recover certain file types using this method.
Sounds like a corrupt file system. Assuming you are using Windows, If you can view the disk in My Computer, right click on the drive, select properties, tools tab, in the error checking option select check now. You may also be able to format the drive by right clicking on the mp3 player's hdd and selecting format, then quick format. Copy any music you wish to keep though on a separate drive as format will erase it.
It is indicating that there is a hard drive fault. Here is another users suggested method to clear the fault.
Following some extensive use I switched it on one day to find that it hung on the Archos home screen and kept going in a loop. Luckily I could see the red HDD light flickering so knew that the Archos was trying to do something and that the HDD was recoverable. When I entered into the recovery mode I found that I had an recovery code (101) which indicates a HDD fault.
I used the following steps to recover the HDD:-
1. Connect the archos to the PC using the USB cable (the unit will start but will need to be shut down again by pressing the power button) 2. Press the power button and the 'lock' button together for a few seconds and you should get a basic recovery screen 3. Scroll down to repair disk and select 4. Click on done and wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive in 'My Computer' (Note that this does take a few minutes) 5. You now need to back up your data, movies, music, widgets etc as the next step is to format the Archos HDD which will wipe it all. 6. Disconnect the Archos, turn it off and then turn it back on again by pressing the power and 'lock' buttons together. 7. Scroll down to format disk and select. The Archos will now delete all files on the HDD and you will get a message asking to connect to a PC and install the update file. This is the firmware file that can be obtained from the Archos website. You'll also notice that the recovery code has changed from 101 to 108 8. Connect the Archos to the PC, wait for a few seconds and you will see the archos as a drive in 'My Computer' again. 9. Drag the firmware update file from your PC where you've downloaded it to directly on to the root drive 10. Click 'done' on the Archos and it will begin to update the operating system. 11. Once this is complete then there should be an update successful message, select done and the archos should restart giving you the nice bubble screen and asking if you want to enable USB. 12. Note that the Archos is now in a 'factory built' condition so you'll need to adjust settings etc according to your preferences. 13. You can now start the long process of transferring your files back to the Archos.

My mustek seems to be able to play music files (wma/mp3) fine but i don't know how to play videos on it. I've used the converter that came on the CD with the mustek and I've also tried converting using various media converters.
Well i tried this and it worked
Install net framework 2 (from microsoft)
Also if you don't want to use the rubbish softward provided
Download a programme called HERBERT
Select your HDD 120 hard drive from my computer and install HERBERT on there - creat a shorcut of HERBERT to your desktop & you can put albums etc from that (you do have to ensure you have the latest firmware installed - Herbert can do this for you as well
Then you should be ready to go - its a lot faster than DMM!!
first remove the screws on the back then remove the hard drive silver metal part with a black plastic edge and then put it back in then replace the cover the back and put the screws back in and this should fix the can't initialize the HDD problem well it did for me
