Try going to http://www.apple.com/ca/ipod/download/index_cgi.html . Download that program, install it, then open it and plug in the ipod. If it works u should be able to click restore and your ipod will work.

Cannot open drive E on Iomega zip 100

Assuming you have connected the drive and then restarted the computer with the drive connected and powered on... if it is model 31714 (not the same as the picture no power supply is required - if power supply is required make sure unit is powered on prior to connecting)

First guess at your problem. Your disks are formatted for a operating system other than what you are using. (Mac formatted disks on a PC or the other way around)

If you don't know how the disks were formatted you could test this by letting it get to the "insert disk" and then trying to right click and see if you have a format option ... note this will erase all information on the disks.. you will likely need to long format

Second guess the drive is bad... have seen cases where the drive is bad. If you have another computer you can use try hooking the computer up to another computer and see if you get the same result.

Let me know if this does not work and specific model number and op system I might have more ideas. I can also point you to a replacement If I know more about your system.

I've had some luck getting this to work again by using the linux ext2 format utility to format it back to the windows fat16 format, then use windows to format it again. There is something that windows doesn't like about the fat table when ext2 does it so you need to do this double format. Doesn't work all the time but does quite a bit.

Sounds like a corrupt file system. Assuming you are using Windows, If you can view the disk in My Computer, right click on the drive, select properties, tools tab, in the error checking option select check now.
You may also be able to format the drive by right clicking on the mp3 player's hdd and selecting format, then quick format. Copy any music you wish to keep though on a separate drive as format will erase it.

ERROR MESSAGE

Your DVD may not support the codec that you used to record with. There are many formats like DIVX, Mpeg, and Mov files. Your system must support the format that you recorded or it will not work.

Disk Error Message

the best thing to do is RE format the disc. i am currently having the same problem , witch i am tired of fixing them. if the item is from ebay : hong kong , i suggest you tell the buyer and complain. people will do anything for good feedback. saw formatting it will work. but you'll have the same problem in the future. either you copy all your music files to a folder. or buy one from Argos , woolworths etc etc...

"MTP DB Mismatch Format?"

I had the same problem In My Sandisk Sansa, and the way I fixed it is the following: Plug your player in your computer in MSC mode (On your player, go to settings, then USB and choose MSC) Then in "my computer", right-click on the player icon and go to "properties". In "properties" go to "tools" and in the first option, which is "error checking", click on "check now". In check disk options, check both "automatically fix file system errors" and "Scan for and attempt recorevy of ba sectors". It's going to take a few minutes (phase 1 and phase 2 will be displayed). Wait until it is complete. When it is done, close the "properties" window and right-click on the icon of the player and click on "format"! It should say format complete and the player should be then be ready to synchronize files again! Now Enjoy That Good luck!! From:-Javed(Taj)
