Same problem for me. First it started showing "file system corrupt", then the screen wouldn't stop flashing, then I got the "hard disk temperature too low." I found that the temporary solution is to unscrew the back, take the battery and 5 GB micro drive out of their slots without disconnecting the terminals, and placing them back in their spot. Not sure of the reasons behind these problems, but it could be because the manufactures cheaped out on the processor design to save money. If the screen does a flashing blue toggle repeatedly, I found the best thing is to take the back off, find the LCD output pins and run a screwdriver across them until the screen goes blank. This seems to do a good job of resetting the display. Mine works fine for now, we will see how long it lasts.

I had the same problem on my daughter's Lyra 5GB MP3 player. I fully charged it, tried the 10 second power button reset, and was on the way to remove the back to check the disk drive cable when my daughter dropped it and it started working again!
Good job too, since when I checked, the disk drive connector appeared to be soldered on.

When I turn on my ipod shuffle & hit play it blinks green and orange several times and won't play


The Apple iPod shuffle is a digital music player that contains a single indicator light that relays information about the device's battery condition, computer connection and any errors the device is having. The indicator light is capable of blinking red, green or orange as well as displaying a steady red, green or orange light. The iPod Shuffle includes a Universal Serial Bus interface and buttons on the front of the device for controlling music files.

Blinking Orange A blinking orange light indicates the iPod Shuffle is receiving an update via iTunes to the device's internal components. The update could include a patch to repair an error the player encountered once before, an update to the player's file-saving software, or a combination of security, repair and software updates. Updates are free and automatically sent directly from Apple through iTunes to your iPod shuffle before a sync process starts. Disconnecting iPod Shuffle When the player's light is blinking orange, do not unplug the device from your computer's USB port this will stop the update process and possible corrupt the device's internal hard drive. Let the update process and sync process finish before clicking "Eject" within iTunes and removing the player. Disk Use Enabled If you use your iPod Shuffle as a flash drive and not as a music player, a blinking orange light means that the device is connected to your computer and ready to accept files. The "Disk Use" enabled setting is changeable within iTunes if you decide to use your iPod Shuffle for music storage instead of file storage. When set up as a flash drive, the iPod Shuffle is assigned a drive letter by your computer's operating system and the drive lets you "drag and drop" files to the device. b> Charging If your iPod shuffle's battery is completely depleted or low on charge, connect the player to your computer immediately for charging then leave it connected to receive any updates to the device's software and internal components. Its indicator light may or may not blink orange until after it is fully charged. If the battery is low on charge or completely depleted, you may receive an error stating that the iPod is corrupt or needs restoring, close the error message and let the device fully charge.

My coby mp705 wont turn on but when i plug it to my computer it works.. what kind of assistance shall i do to make my coby back to normal? any kind of answer would be wonderful


sounds like the battery is the problem if it wont start wothout a power source

Check the system requirements for the MP3 player.

Most Coby players require Windows XP or higher and at least 1 GB of RAM to function correctly.


Check your Coby owner's manual to ensure that your machine meets all the required specifications before proceeding.


Charge the MP3 player fully.

Often, a player will act unexpectedly if it has a low charge.

A charge can also help reset the MP3 player if it has frozen or locked up.


Once the player has finished charging to 100%, see if the problem persists.

Re-sync your player.


Plug the MP3 player back in to the computer and then remove all the files.

If you have not done so already, make sure they are backed up to your hard drive.


Unplug your MP3 player and then re-load all of your files.

Check for corrupted and wrong format files.


Most Coby MP3 players only play back MP3 files, and will perform unexpected operations

if files of other formats are uploaded to the device.


Go through your uploaded files and check the extensions.

Anything that does not say ".mp3" or is not listed in your owner's manual needs to be deleted from the device.


hope this helps

My eclipse 180 mp3 player is not being recognized by my computer


Hi wfowler05...
This is for an external hard drive, but the same applies to your MP3 player
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The problem is being caused by the Logical Disk Manager
Administrative service and possibly the logical Disk Manager service
not being started or the services might be disabled. to solve the
problem, click on the "Start" menu, click the "Run" command, and then type
in the box: services.msc , scroll down until you see both the above services.
right click on each of the services about and select properties, on the
general tab, change the startup type to "automatic" and click the start
button under the service status. do this for both of the services, and
that should will fix your problem."
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
For Windows 2000 and XP:
Right click on My Computer.
Choose Manage (This will open the Computer Management window).
Go to the Storage category and select Disk Management
Right click the new drive (usually listed as Hard Disk 1) and "initialize"
You now have the option to partition and format the drive.
The default settings of Primary Partition and NTFS- Quick Format are recommended for most users.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
External hard drive can not be recognized, are more common on computer
failures, what's the reason caused this failure?
1, Setting the CMOS parameters
If you never used the USB external device, there may occur the case:
The system can not detect USB hard drive even if the driver is properly
installed, which was mainly due to the motherboard CMOS default port is closed, if not set to
open state, it naturally Windows can not detect the external hard drive. In order to solve this
problem, we can re-boot into the CMOS settings, and set "Assign IRQ For USB" to "Enable" in
"PNP / PCI CONFIGURATION" column, now the system can be assigned to the USB port available
interrupt address.
2, Power shortage
As the USB drive need to consume some power when it at work, if directly through the USB interface
to take power, the power supply may be not enough. Thus, almost all of the external hard drive
comes with a separate external power supply or a PS2 keyboard to take power transfer interface,
at this time you should connect external power supply or through the transfer cable ps2 connected
to keyboard to ensure that it have provided adequate power to the external hard disk,
recommended that you should ensure the external hard drive have adequate power supply when you
use it, otherwise, the external hard disk is likely to be damaged due to insufficient power
supply.
3, USB extension cable fault
USB interface type does not match the external hard disk interface ,this case caused it can not
be used. For example the standard USB interface of the computer configuration is 1.1, while the
external hard drives purchased are USB 2.0, which requires the cable connected computers and
external hard disk must support USB 2.0 standard. Because high-speed mobile device plug in a
low-speed hub, the device may not be properly installed, and some people use external hard disk
while using USB flash drives, For convenience, they directly used USB 1.1 standard cable that
supplied by USB flash drives, as a result, the USB 2.0 standard hard drive not be recognized
correctly. Just replace it by the USB 2.0 standard cable can solve this problem.
4, Windows version is too low
Pre-Windows 98 operating system does not support USB peripherals, so in any case to install the
driver, set the CMOS parameters are unable to make normal use of external hard disk. In this
case, one solution is to upgrade the operating system up to Windows 98, another way is to
Microsoft's official site, download the appropriate patch to make it can identify mobile hard
disk.
5, The system is set incorrectly
When installed driver, the external hard disk icon will be seen on the Device Manager for some
Windows 98 users, but the Explorer does not include the corresponding letter identification,
which is improper system settings. In the Device Manager, double-click the Hard Drive icon, and
click the pop-up window in the "Properties" button, and you could see disconnect, could be
deleted, synchronous data transmission and Int 13 unit four options, of which "could be deleted "
is no tick in front of the system, and simply check this option to restart your computer, you can
see in the Explorer, the new external hard disk drive letter.
While the failure of the external hard disk does not recognized are more the reasons, but
generally not the USB interface or external hard disk's own fault, so it requiring us to consider
some more from around the association when exclude it, I believe you can successfully use the
external hard disk.

Hi I had the same problem and solved it like this assuming that you are running windows xp

With your external casing powered-up (it does not get power through USB does it?) and your WinXP
PC running, plug in the USB.
You should hear 'chime', what happens then?
If harddisk is recognised here, but does NOT have a drive-letter and cannot be seen in Windows
Explorer, the answer is in Windows Disk Management
...
Go Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Disk Management. ( on left column)
Maximize this page. Physical Drives appear at the bottom; Logical Drives at the top.
Hopefully your drive will appear at the bottom (physically), you must then 'import' it into the
Windows installation
; Windows will put its 'signature' on the drive and assign it a logical drive letter :^)
you can try to format it here if it is new and has no info on it , check back to My computer and see if present.
Please take time to rate me

All files deleted


This problem is caused by a corrupt database file. When the player starts it doesn't scan the hard disk, it reads the database file instead. Anything that it doesn't find in the file, it ignores. This means that your tracks have not been deleted, but the player can't 'see' them.

You will need to repair the player using the Philips Device Manager. This will format the player and reload the system files.

The latest version can be downloaded here:

https://www.p4c.philips.com/cgi-bin/dcbint/sget?url=/mprdata/060924/060924042328_15781.zip&ofn=HDD6320_6330_DM_WEB_ENG.zip


If you don't have the tracks on your PC, you can copy them off the player as follows:

Connect the player to the power supply and the PC.

Press and hold [POWER ON] & [VOL+] to reset the player.

When the player resets, quickly release the buttons, then press and hold [VOL-]

The player should register as either Removable Drive or GoGear, and a drive letter eg. e:

Once the player has registered on the PC, release the [VOL-] button,

You can now use the player exactly the same as a hard disk, and drag & drop the tracks to you PC.

Restart the player, use the repair function of Philips Device Manager to restore the player, and re-load the tracks as normal.

I've uploaded ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED on this rapidshare link, I format my player and bringit back to life with only this...
http://rapidshare.com/files/106001227/Player.rar.html

1.- unrar to the player

2.1.- install the software, included in the rar file, then try if it works it should

IMPORTANT: when you have manage to make it work do this, it will save you a lot of time

1.- browse your player to the system/data folder and backup those files, if you get any future troubles (like no music found, strange characters instead of artist's list) replace those files with your backup, backup those files always after adding new music!!!

2.- save the rar file I've uploaded, if you have the wmp plugin already installed and you get the "Oh dear this hard disk doesn't work" message again, just format the player, and put every single file from the rar to the player

DEVICE HAS'' READ ACCESS ERROR-CANNOT READ FROM HARD DISK''


If you have problems with the file system on your Gmini you can try to fix it using the DOS utility, check disk (chkdsk). Do the following; ? Make sure external AC adapter is powering the Gmini. ? Quit all running applications. ? Properly connect the Gmini to your computer ? Wait patiently (up to 5 minutes) for Windows XP to show the local drive as mounted. ? Open a DOS window. Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. ? At the prompt, type chkdsk e: /f. Use e: or f: or whatever drive letter is representing your Gmini. The /f argument tells the program to automatically fix errors. ? Be patient, this may take a while. ? When it is finished, exit the DOS Window and properly disconnect the Gmini from your computer. Try using the device now and see if makes any difference. If not you could try formatting it using a DOS prompt.
