Hi , i did the same thing. But i also save the software. But after formating. Now i need the firmware back. If some one can help me in tht i will be very thankful to him.
I have fixed this, and I hate this player, however this is the solution
I've uploaded ALL YOU'LL EVER NEED on this rapidshare link, I format my player and bringit back to life with only this...
1.- unrar to the player
2.- try if it works, if not go to 2.1
2.1.- install the software, included in the rar file, then try if it works it should
IMPORTANT: when you have manage to make it work do this, it will save you a lot of time
1.- browse your player to the system/data folder and backup those files, if you get any future troubles (like no music found, strange characters instead of artist's list) replace those files with your backup, backup those files always after adding new music!!!
2.- save the rar file I've uploaded, if you have the wmp plugin already installed and you get the "Oh dear this hard disk doesn't work" message again, just format the player, and put every single file from the rar to the player
3.- excuse my english...
