My xclef 500 hard drive just died after about 45,000 hrs, 7yrs of use. I was just barely able to retrieve the syst files off the disc and transfered them to another hd. Had a 160gig hd, but had to format it to 100 gigs for the player to use it. I have copies of the file folders that I could post to a site, if it allowed me to. Too bad this site won't let me post files.

SOURCE: My Xclef HD-500 will not boot up.

My OH finally solved this himself today! You need to update your firmware - just Google for Xclef HD500 Firmware and you'll find plenty of sites. He went to www.emmeau.com/xclef and downloaded firmware version 1.097 from the firmware section. This is an oldish version but I gather the latest ones can give some bother - and all I was wanting was my Xclef working again. You'll find full instructions there, too, but you'll need to download a couple of files - connect the XClef by the USB port and the power adapter (very importan!!!t)and then copy the two files into the "Firmware" folder of the Xclef. (If you go to My Computer you can see the connected Xclef there as another drive of your computer, and can look at all the folders and files, as you'll no doubt be aware). Do a USB safe removal in the system tray and unplug the USB cable, power on the Xclef - the firmware will update and it switches itself off automatically. Power on the Xclef again, press 'Menu' key for a couple of seconds, go to 'set-up', then 'system', then 'system initial' then 'OK' then switch off the Xclef and everything should be fine next time you use it. HOPE THIS HELPS!

Dvd player will not play disks that a lap top will. it says can not read disk.


Page 12 of the manual...

Just the CD discussion. DVD is above it on page 12...

CD [CD] [WMA] [MP3] [JPEG] [VCD]

≥This unit can play CD-R/RW recorded with the above formats. Close the sessions or finalize §2 the disc after recording.

≥ [CD] This unit is compatible with HDCD, but does not support the Peak Extend function (a function which expands the

dynamic range of high-level signals).

HDCD-encoded CDs sound better because they are encoded with 20 bits, as compared with 16 bits for all other CDs.

≥ [WMA] [MP3] [JPEG] This unit also plays HighMAT discs.

≥[WMA] This unit does not support Multiple Bit Rate (MBR: a file that contains the same content encoded at several
different bit rates).

§1 Includes single-sided, dual-layer discs.

§2 A process that allows play on compatible equipment.
≥ It may not be possible to play all the above-mentioned discs in some cases due to the type of disc or condition of the recording.

Tip

Do I use CBR or VBR for my TMPG v4.0 Xpress MPG2 encoding ?


VBR (Constant quality)
Used to make high quality clips no matter the file Compared to VBR (Average bitrate) this mode generates a bigger file but insure the best picture quality control possible.

VBR (Average bitrate)
Encodes using the VBR bitrate control mode, allowing for a smaller final output file size but requiring a longer processing time.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

CBR (Constant bitrate)

This is the Usual encode mode for most commercial DVD.
Because the encoding process is streamlined this mode allows a fast encoding but creates relatively big file due to poor optimization. This mode is usable when file size is not a constraint. Encodes using the CBR bitrate control mode, allowing for faster output but without bitrate allocation optimization, resulting in a bigger file size and possible picture quality degradation in scenes with a large amount of motion.

What does unknown format mean? Why can't i play music?


what this means is that you are trying to play an audio file on your mp3 player that is not supported by the player and thus it will not play. in order to make the audio file in question play, you will need to convert it into a readable format that is listed by the player it's self. to do this, find out what type of audio file it is (this can be determined be the file extention [.mp3, .mp4, .wav, .m4a, .flac] assuming your computer is set to allow you to see it. though most operating systems will display the file type in the info bar.) then search for "[insert format here] to mp3 converter" and purchase the software required. most of this software is relatively cheep and works on more than one file type.

Won't recognize an MP3 format CD


Usually a disc with audio files is not encoded with MP3's, but, rather, audio files. You can check this by manually opening the disc (right click on the player when the disc is in it), and looking at the files. If you only see marker (files of a few kilobits) in "MP3" format, then the disc needs to be "ripped" into MP3 format.

The ratio for audio to MP3 is 10 :1--this means a CD of 700 MB size with 10 tracks will become an MP3 collection of 10 tracks approximately 70 MB in size (this is a standard 128kbps audio quality CD) If the encoding is less (64 or 32kbps), the size of the resulting MP3 is smaller.

The hands down best ripping software to convert your audio CD to MP3's is called Goldwave. Although Nero and Winamp have functionality on a limited basis for this task, Goldwave is a far superior software package to not only rip, but also edit your creations. Once you have installed Goldwave, you use the OPEN CD button to read your files---then save them to your hard drive (in what CODEC or quality you want---MP3, Apple AIF, OggVorbis, etc.etc

MP3 Player not recognizing Real Player Video Files


That Opal's Easy Rip Software does not recognize Real Video format naturally. You may have to download a free program called Riva FLV Encoder to convert the Real Video files to AVI format. Once they are in AVI format, the Easy Rip software will recognize the file and convert them to your player. If you have lost your installation CD, you can get the Easy Rip software from:

How to download songs to the MP3 player


iTunes is an application that allows the user to manage audio and video on a personal computer, acting as a front end for Apple's QuickTime media player. Officially, using iTunes is required in order to manage the audio of an Apple iPod portable audio player, although alternative software does exist. Users can organize their music into playlists within one or more libraries, edit file information, record Compact Discs, copy files to a digital audio player, purchase music and videos through its built-in music store, download free podcasts, back up songs onto a CD or DVD, run a visualizer to display graphical effects in time to the music, and encode music into a number of different audio formats.

You have to download iTunes software and make a playlist then sinc the ipod.

I have a DMC Xclef HD 500 I accidently formatted now Now anytime I turn it on it says not formatted. I believe that I need the original programing


It would depend on how it was formatted. Did you remove it from the player and format it on a computer? The Xclef requires a FAT32 format / partition. I've upgraded the drive in mine on two occasions & found the easiest way to format the drive (there's no easy way though a windows OS) is to use this utility . . . "fat32format" . . . http://www.crapcontrol.com/e107_files/downloads/fat32format.zip
