Check hdd connection

I cannot see my music files or play them on the mp3 player. But I can take them on and off and transfer them between computers. The radio works. When I start it up it says "check hdd connection" then "check hdd" I have tried reformatting, resetting and charging fully, and reloading firmware. The firmware loads into player on the PC, but won't upload when I try to upload in the player. I don't think the hard drive is dead- I can hear it start up, and it turns on and off easily. Appreciate any ideas-- Thanks!

To those who may be looking for a solution to weird i-hp120/140 problems...

I had weird problems like 'check hdd' and 'usb connected' when it wasn't. Eventually it permanently displayed 'usb connected' and I couldn't do anything with it anymore. Turns out one of the chips on the piggy-back board had become de-soldered and was loose. touching all the pins with a soldering iron (no solder) to reseat the chip worked. All is well now.

Downloading music on my mp3

Your player appears as a USB mass storage device in the My Computer window. You can organize files and transfer music to your player while connected via USB connection.


1.     Click and highlight one or more songs to transfer between your player and your computer


2.     Use drag and drop actions to transfer music files and folders to your player


3.     Organize your music in folders. Your player will play your music folder by folder so that you can organize your music by artists and albums. You can drag and drop entire folders to your player. Your player will play the music files that are not inside folders first followed by the music files inside folders

I can't download music from my computer to my InVion 256MB MP3/WMA/REC. Do I need something special? Computer says it recognizes new hardware but I have'nt been able to download music

Are you getting a specific error message when you try to transfer songs? Does it look like they are transferrring, and then do not play? Are you just looking for the program that you would use to transfer songs? I would suggest Windows Media Player. Is iTunes your music service? If so, they will not work with this mp3 player.

You can also drag and drop the Mp3 or WMA files from Windows Explorer:
Try this - connect your mp3 player to computer --> double-click on My Computer --> double-click on the icon of the mps player --> double-click on the music folder --> drag and drop the music files to a folder/desktop of your own choosing

Check the format of the song - this player will play mp3 or wma, but if your wma's do not have "transfer rights" then you cannot transfer them to this or any other player.

File error

What's the music format of the songs that you placed on your mp3 player? Some MP3 Players only capable of playing song files with .mp3 extension and are incapable of playing other music format like wav, wma, etc. Check also the contents of the player for corrupted files and foreign files. Some viruses from a computer could affect the performance of your mp3 player.
