The device cannot initialize HDD?

Remove the back panel of the player you will probably find that it will work fine. I did this to my daughters unit and found that the panel was pushed in and depressing the reset button all the time. I rescued it out of the garbage when she bought an i-pod, now I have this unit for myself and it works great.

I know your problem. Your HDD is not clipped in. Press that little square circut thing in untill you hear a click.

Cannot initialize HDD

Try taking the back off & unplugging the battery from the hard drive for a few seconds. This worked for me. You could also try pressing the reset button on the back of the player (I used the end of a bent paper clip). Leave it plugged into the charger when you take the back off. Good luck!

Initial fail error

The HDD is disconnected from the player. When you open up the player just carefully push the circut board thing on the gold foil behind the hdd in untill it clicks.
