    i believe its quite expensive getting an expert to secure the recovery of the data so i guess ill have to live without it.

    the warranty was up last month sadly

I'm afraid if you would have damaged the cylinders inside...
if yours hd is under warranty you can try it with a computer repairman...else if would cost you more of the secure recovery of the data in the hd..

thankyou

Connected PC to LG with HDMI. Wonderful pic but NO sound. PC HDMI audio test works great and sound is clear thru TV. When movie is played from PC to TV there is no sound.


How do you get HDMI out to tv, through a graphics card? Is Is it HDMI direct out of the card or DVI adaptor? I believe you will get a ping even if the volume is turned down and when playing a movie you would have volume control throuh the DVD player, the computer and the tv. Make sure your volume is turned up on dvd player and right click on your speaker icon in taskbar, at lower right of screen and make sure that volume is up. When you do the ping are you checking a "HD" audio driver. Look in 'device manager" in "sound audio and game controllers" and right click on "HD" devices and make sure they are enabled. Let me know what happens. When you look at devices in device manager you also may see a warning. If so click on the symbol, ? ,!, or triangle and follow proceedure.

My external hard drive is not being seen by my computer?


1 of 2 things can be wrong...1 (cable may be loose) unplug the cable (ext HD) connected to pc, now reinsert back into pc..try this once or twice...until you see it appear in my computer....if this is not working and your ext HD came with a CD software..uninstall (make sure ext HD is not connected) software, then reinstall make sure your firewall allows it to be connected....this should do the trick...now plug HD back up to pc...do not format your ext hd unless you really really dont want the data on it (format erases everything)

I have an Archos 605, and have also purchased the console to connect it to my tv. This console has a USB connection, and the instructions say that I can connect my external HDD to it, and view this using...


Here's what you do.
Make sure that you can play one of the sample videos to your TV. Next, stop and go to the home screen.
Next, if your external HD has a powersource, plug that into the wall and the device so that it has power. Next plug the usb cable into the side of the DVR Station. The device screen (or the tv if you are still on tv out) should say, external device connecting. It will show the double browser screen and then just go to the file desired and click on OK. If the device doesnt recgnize and mount the external hd, could be because there is not enough power to the ext. HD or the HD is formatted in somehting other than fat32.

My media player 11 won't show up on my computer? it was working fine but now it wont show up


Read the warning about this device and Windows Media Player 11 at www.usasupport.philips.com

You will need to reformat the GoGear in Windows Media Player, but do a firmware upgrade first - open the Philips Device Manager and click on the Update tab. Then click the update button. After the firmware upgrade is done, open windows Media Player.
REFORMAT FOR WINDOWS MEDIA PLAYER - Erases Everything: Connect your GoGear to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Philips Go Gear SAXXX" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything, and make your player properly read in Windows Media Player.
