Question about Digital Mind Corporation HD-500 MP3 Player
Hello: I have a DMC Xclef and the on-disc software to allow it to encode MP3 files has been lost. Can I get the software somewhere to reload on the unit? Thanks, Dave

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.

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!
