Olympus m:robe mr-100 mp3 player

When I turned my mp3 player on a sign appeared. It's an exclimation mark with a caption saying: "FATAL SYSTEM ERROR SERVICE REQUIRED /004". Then I tried to turn it off again but it wouldn't swith off. The only way it eventually turned off was when the battery died. I then plugged it into the computer, because I thought the m:trip program might be able to do something, but again the same sign just appeared. I'm not to sure what I should do. Thanks for your help :) -Heidi

4 small (tiny!) screws ... one either side at top and 2 at bottom, then pull the case away from the unit , catching the rubber bit that will fall out of the 'phone socket!. the 2 stickers are actually on the hard drive (bottom of unit) you just shove a flathead jewellers driver in the grid to the right and move the arm up and to the right. THIS SHOULDN'T REALLY WORK, BUT IT DOES!

I had this problem, and it turned out that the arm for the hard drive was stuck (a solution i found online) of course, this may not be the problem for you. When you turn it on, put your ear to the unit to see if you can hear the arm moving around. If it is...then something else is your problem. HOwever, if you don't hear the arm moving, or you hear whining, like it's trying to move...you'll need to open the unit, peel the two stickers (one brand, one protector) off the battery and use a small screwdriver to push the arm back to the right where it rests. Obviously, if you still have warranty, this would be a stupid move.

I too have a fatal error message on my m-robe m-100


Depending on what the error is, it's probably pretty easy to fix. If it's showing error 004, then it's having a problem loading the firmware from the hard drive. Usually this is from a deleted/corrupt file. To find out what the problem is, do this:

Plug the M:Robe into your computer, then when it says charging battery, push the power button and hold the player up to your ear. If you can hear the hard drive spinning, then it's almost definitely just a software issue. If you don't hear the hard drive spinning, it may have a dead drive. If that's the case, you'll have to send it in to have it fixed or buy a new one. There's usually several cheap ones on ebay that have same software problem, and you can just swap parts, or fix the one you bought.

To fix the software issue:
1. Download the firmware from this page: http://www.olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/software_results.asp?id=1145&os=w
2. Plug in your mp3 player, and turn it on.
3. Run the program you downloaded, and follow the instructions.

If step 3 won't work, it could be a damaged file system. If that's the case, open up your 'My Computer' and find the M:Robe drive, then format it, then do step 3 again. You will have to put all your music back on it.
