The ribbon cable that connects the hard drive to the board came off due to shock impact.

A local repair facility will be able to reconnect the cable.

Reset the player first. Then reload the firmware from the website if resetting fails to resolve.

Lightwave hdd media player that disconnects & reconnects

It could be either because of loose connection or fluctuating current supply to HDD. So make sure there is no loose connection. For the second problem, connect both the USB pins for the cable, if provided with the HDD. Also try connecting the hdd to different USB ports as well as to different computers.
If nothing solves your issue, then the problem is internally in the HDD, you have to get it repaired.
Please come back and rate my solution if it turns to be helpful for you. Thnx

I have a dell inspiron 6000 laptop and whenever it boots up i get a message that says, ''A disk read error occurred.'' I got a new laptop for christmas, but there are things i would really like to have...

Get yourself an eide/sta to usb adapter. This will let you take a removed HDD from the old computer, attach it to the adapter hub and plug the usb connection into your new computer. Your new computer will read the old one as an external HDD and you can take all the files you want. Most computer retailers and Ebay have them for around 15-20 bucks.

crc is READ errors.
what is this install media
you never said, what media, CD/DVD or USB stick
nor how it was made. by you, or media came from maker.
crc is error checking system for files.

it can happen 3 ways, one reading a bad CD
or writing your HDD. (bad hdd)
windows does the check both ways
and the actual HDD does it internally, and if Sectors in the HDD
are bad, it replaces them (unseen on the fly) until such day the HDD
runs out of spares and is DOOM.
we run SMART test on all suspected hDD
the more modern unstated windows by you, will tell you the HDD is failing early, W10 for example warns of HDD internal errors.

Simple answer
CRC is like dropping deck of cards to the floor
you pick them up , count 51, and now right away this deck is no good. no need to count suites. at all.
CRC is the big brother to Checksum (card deck answer)
MD5 is what we use to check large down loaded files for integrety
cheers !

Repair the GoGear - warning: this will delete all files from your player.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

HDD read error

I had the same problem with my mp3 player. The problem seems to be that the charge had been depleted - even though the screen said the charging was complete when I plugged it in. Disregard the screen, charge your machine for two hours, and if your player is like mine, it will be functioning properly afterwards. Hope that helps.
