    Thanks for your reply, but i've tried all that.
    Sometimes i get the message my mp3 has malfunctioned, other times it just does not come up. After a first, in a long time memory recovery came up, and then i went to reformat my mp3, the mp3 was finally founded on my hardware, but during the reformat state, when the bars start loading up , and it says do not take out your mp3, about 75% of the way, this message came up error:

    Semaphore Time out period has expired.For some reason the mp3 virus check thing is not working neither.

    That's a pretty opaque error message without any more information; if the error repeats itself when you retry, you might try formatting on a different USB port, or without your webcam or whatever running, until things are so simple it just works...or proves that its software is going awry. Try again after rebooting your PC or another PC and see if it's the same in that case....

    If that fails, maybe reinstall or update the player's software, or run an antivirus, or convince your antivirus you really mean to format.

Want to use my current speakers with a new surround sound system. Current system is 5.1 channels, rated at 100w per channel @ 8. Ohms. New System is rated 145watts, 5.2 channels at 6 Ohms. Will b ok?


Hi Ronald.
8 Ohm speakers will work just fine as replacements for the
6 ohm speakers. When fitting speakers you need to consider
The power handling capability. The impedance and the frequencies
involved. Power handling is expressed in wattage ie 100W.
Unfortunately this can be expressed in rms, max or peak music. The rms value (root mean square) is the only really relevant figure as this is the continuose handling power at 1 KHz. The impedance
is the resistance that the amp sees but is not a dc resistance and
varies with frequency. The lower the impedance the more power
will be drawn from the amp. In the event of a short circuit across
the speaker the amp will try to deliver infinite power into an infinitly
small load in an infinitesimal amount of time and will self destruct.
Using an 8 Ohm speaker draws less power than a 6 Ohm speaker.
Connecting speakers in parallel; results in the impedance beingreduced. For example two 8 Ohm speakers in parallel will result
in a 4 Ohm impedance load but in series will be 16 Ohms.
Incidentally the the .1 (5.1) is the sub woofer which only has
to handle the bass frequencies, a small percentage of the
amplifiers overall frequency response..
Connect your speakers and then power up the amp last
after double checking there are no shorts on the speaker
cables.
All the very best from Vintie.

Pioneer audio video receiver VSX-D710S but there is sound to the speaker, but no audio coming from the player


Try to check the audio setting of the player. If you user using optical or coaxial then the audio out put format setting should be Raw other wise it should be PCM. You will see the setting if you go through the menu of the player
