SOURCE: Device Error on ALpin CDA-105 CD reciever

Sorry to say my friend, but the problem is with the Archose. I recently installed a Soundstream unit for a customer of mine, and he had an Archos aswell. The Archose will go in to slave mode, and act as a removeable mass media storage, but that's as far as it will go. Other mass storage units will work fine, you can even use a regular old usb thumb drive, but not the Archose.

I have a brookstone brand record player with the ability to convert records to mp3/wma files via a sd slot and a usb slot. Every time I plug in an empty flash drive/ usb toward an external hard drive, or...


Hi,
External drives require to be formatted before use on somewhere else..
Pls "format" it on your Pc and than try again....
Sometimes proper formatting is possible on the equipment itself (like Digital Cameras )
I was not able to get into your units detailed specs to see if such feature is existed..
if its exist ,you must access thru "set up menu"
Secondly ,if the display recognizes the HD than your Record player will create its own Files/ folders..try to record something even it reads "no file" and than plug it into your PC to see what has been recorded..
Hope this helps!
Take care and please

My freestyle player says format error how to fix?? it was working fine and then this error.


Hello there,

Q.: My player is having a DRM error / Format Error / Empty Disk Error
what do I do?
A: For all 3 errors, the first step is to attempt to reset the player, this can be accomplished by pressing the play and menu
buttons down together for approximately five seconds. If reset does nothing, make sure all the songs are .mp3s, if all songs
are .mp3s, attempt to format and re-sync the player.

if you need it

How do I convert my iTunes into MP3 format?
A: See Music Conversion Instruction Document: Transferring and Playing Music on Freestyle Audio mp3 players with
iTunes.

if you need to format the player here is how for MAC and windows.

Q.: What's Reformatting, How do I format my Player?
A: Reformatting your player basically wipes you player clean and deletes all songs, leaving you with a blank slate. Like
most removable drives you can reformat your player with no worries of damage to the unit. When reformatting on a Mac
make sure you choose the MS-DOS format style.
(CAUTION: FORMATTING WILL ERASE EVERTHING ON THE DRIVE)
PC (Windows NT, 9x, XP and Vista):
1. Plug in the Mp3 Player.
2. Put the Player in removable drive mode. Under "My Computer" you should
see the player as a removable drive.
3. Right click on the "removable drive" and a Drop down menu should appear.
4. In the menu select the option "format..."
5. Make sure that "FAT" is selected as the file system and that Allocation
Unit size is set to "Default Allocation Unit Size"
6. Now click format and wait, after it says format complete, you're done.
MAC OS 9 (and Earlier):
1. Plug the player in.
2. Put the player in removable drive mode.
3. Single-click the disk's icon on your desktop to format.
4. Pull down the "Special" menu from the top of the screen and select "Erase
Disk..."
5. Enter whatever name you want in the "Name:" field in the window that pops
up. If the disk is a hard drive, select "Mac OS Extended" from the
"Format:" pull down. If the disk is not a hard drive (such as a Zip Disk
or other removable media), select "MS-DOS or MAC OS Standard" for the
format.
6. Press "Erase." The drive will be formatted and ready to use.
MAC OS X (and later):
1. Start your computer and plug in the player in the USB port after the Mac
OS has completed loading.
2. Put the Player in removable drive mode.
3. An icon for a removable drive should appear for the flash drive on the
desktop.
4. From the Dock, open "Disk Utility".
5. Click "Erase" from the top selector (next to "First Aid")
6. Choose "MS DOS File System (FAT16)"
7. Click the "Erase" button
8. Perform the instructions given on the screen and finish the formatting.

if you need any help with a Step let me know and i hope this information was helpful don't forget to Rate .

16GB Flash Drive NTFS Formatting


what brand flash drive is this? some of the cruzer brand flash drives are partitioned to 2 drives. you may need to go to the manufacturers website and remove the partition with a 3rd party software. if it IS a cruzer, that software is on the larger of the two drives that show up when you insert the drive.

Clarion DXZ385USB will not play from the usb input


It is not compatible. I had the same receiver and mp3 player. according to the Clarion website, an "ERROR 5" is the message for a compatibility problem. You probably got an "ERROR 2"(format problem) when you had the player plugged in and then cycled through the sources(that's how I received the error).

I have since bought an Ipod and the USB input works just fine. Clarion says the deck is MTP compatible, but it will not run a lot of MTP devices. Only Ipods and certain memory sticks. The Creative Zen Vision M is read as an MTP device when it it plugged into anything like a computer, Xbox 360, and the Clarion USB receivers. The Clarion units even attempt to read it as an MPT device, but will not play. It is not an issue with the receiver or the MP3 files. The Creative Vision M is not a compatible device, sorry.

USB flash drive not holding data


Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player 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 "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything.

Cruzer 2gig won't see usb 2.0


1)maybe not all of the slots are USB2.0 try the furthest slot from the one you put it in or in front of your computer.

2) you should NEVER format a flash drive. It will not work after a format. You now need a new disk.

You should backup your data and format the player. Plug her in, copy your music onto your computer, then format it by right clicking the drive in My Computer, then going to Format, then clicking Start. After it's finished, copy your music back over to the player and it should be sorted.
