Simply remove the old drive and install the new one. The OS for the Akai DPS16 is kept on the motherboard. Once installed, format the disk and it will automatically partition. My new 80GB drive partitioned into 7 @11GB each. Leave the jumper at CS (cable select).

DVRs store files on either data tapes or on hard drives or on memory chips such as SD cards. If SD card then simply remove the card and plug into a computer where it will appear as a removable drive. If internal hard drive your DVR will be equipped with either a IEEE1394 mini socket or a USB mini socket. In either case plug the appropriate cable from your DVR to your computer where it will appear as an external removable drive. If you are talking about a proprietary DVR such as a Foxtel IQ or other brand name DVR then you have to know the format of the video files. Foxtel, for example, uses their own format which can be recovered and saved to an external hard drive on a computer using a video capture card and playing the file back in real time. Time consuming, but that's how I do that. Other branded DVRs use standard video file formats that can be copied to your computer easily via an HDMI socket or USB3 or whatever it has.

I have a WD media player and my HD crashed recently. I installed a new one but i now get an error message saying that my HD is not detected yet it works fine on the PC - please assist.


If it works OK on you PC and not in the WD, it suggests to me that you have the disk incorrectly formatted. Most media players use a Linux format not a windows format (fat or ntfs). Try deleting the partition in the PC and then format it with the WD. I presume that you replaced it with the same size disk as many of them will not use anything larger than the original size.

I have a brookstone brand record player with the ability to convert records to mp3/wma files via a sd slot and a usb slot. Every time I plug in an empty flash drive/ usb toward an external hard drive, or...


Hi,
External drives require to be formatted before use on somewhere else..
Pls "format" it on your Pc and than try again....
Sometimes proper formatting is possible on the equipment itself (like Digital Cameras )
I was not able to get into your units detailed specs to see if such feature is existed..
if its exist ,you must access thru "set up menu"
Secondly ,if the display recognizes the HD than your Record player will create its own Files/ folders..try to record something even it reads "no file" and than plug it into your PC to see what has been recorded..
Hope this helps!
Take care and please

I have a yamaha dvd-c750. I have just created a slideshow using iphoto on a Mac, burnt to a TDK DVD +R. Inserted into the DVD drive. Machine tries to load it. Gives a message "unknown disc"? ...


DVD players can be picky with the type of file format that they use. According to an amazon.com review of this player, it does read DVD+RW/+Rs & DVD-RW/Rs so the problem probably resides in your file format.

The problem is probably the fact that the DVD Player does not recognize the file format of your Mac slide show. The computer recognizes this format, as it plays the slide show. The DVD player recognizes JPG file formats, which is the standard format of a picture.

If a DVD is made with JPG Files, not your slide show files, it will display thumbnails of each picture, allowing the choice of what picture to view.

If the slide show is a must, try to save it to a video file format, such as a *.mpg or *.avi which are common video file formats. These files would be movies of the slide show that you have made.

I have a marantz sr 7001 amp and am running canton 4ohm speakers to front and centre should my amp get really hot and go into protect mode when I am giving it some serious volume


it is not made to drive 4 ohm loads.also if you measure the impedance on the speaker,at some frequencies,it is closer to 3 ohms.This will cause the amplifier to shut down.Today's amplifiers are embellished specs.the old marantz 2325 was 125 watts a channel and weighed 80 pounds.It would eat alive some of the 1000 watt home theater amps of today.Marantz is very nice stuff.

My movie is in dvdrip format but i am not able to play it using usb why?


DVDRIP IS NOT A FORMAT,IT JUST MEANS THAT THE MOVIE WAS COPIED FROM A LEGIT STORE BOUGHT OR RENTED DVD.
WHEN YOU SAY USB DO YOU MEAN USING A FLASH DRIVE?THE FORMAT MAY HAVE BEEN MP4 WHICH IS MAINLY FOR DOWN LOADING ONTO I-PODS AND SUCH.

My drive belt on my optimum turn table has come of how do i put it back on?


Hi mcmassous
Refitting the belt is easy.
1.) Remove rubber pad/mat.
2.) Remove platter just beneath mat. Some platters are "press fit" onto the center shaft and seemingly can't be removed, the trick is to lift up on the platter while simultaneously lightly tapping on the top of the shaft with the handle of a screwdriver. While others may have a "E" clip at the base of the center shaft which must be removed with the a screwdriver, with care that it doesn't fly away before the platter can be removed.
3.) Use rubbing Alcohol soaked cloth to clean outside of large 'lip' or ledge underneath platter and the (usually) brass pulley shaft on platter drive motor which should now be visible.
4.) Install belt around the ledge underneath platter. Belt should be somewhat snug without falling off.
If the belt just falls of the rim of the platter, then it is failing and needs to ne replaced.
5.) Optional: Clean then Lube main center platter shaft of turntable with 3-in-1 oil or similar.
6.) Re-install platter.
7.) look thru 'access window' in platter and rotate platter until platter motor becomes visible.
8.) Stretch belt from platter ledge over to far side of motor pulley.
9.) Re-install mat and start player.
