View Full Version : I just had it with my 508 - now HD problems
Well, today I just had it with my 508
After I used the FTP and couldn't se any files on the HD
I thought that this is another FTP problem - it's NOT
When I turn the 508 on and check the HD all info is unknown and no files listed
PLEASE SAVE MY SANITY AND HELP ME !!!
maybe your harddisc consumes too much energy while in use? This could completly corrupt the filesystem.
Well in this case SHAME on KISS since this is stock 508 unit ....
sorry made an mistake. thought you modded it.
But as far as you described something went wrong with the filesystem, maybe a shipping damage? What fw do you use?
any other details you can provide?
If you flash the firmware, does it ask for initial setup for the hdd?
Does it complete the setup?
Also, the first movie, copy it from the dvd so the folder is created (hdd/video)
Hope something just went wrong and there's nothing broken in the player.
You might have to sent it back if it's the player.
(To initialise the player, use KiSS firmware and not modd firmware)
Just in case.
When I got it I loaded the latest KISS FW
Than changed to latest ET FW
Created folders using FTP and with lots of disconnects uploaded about 30-35 movies.
I'm like to avoid formating the HD
If I use FTP to create new folder I get message:
550 Can't create directory: Read-only file system
OK, it's done with .... I used the HD clean up button and that formated the HD.
All back in order but all movies gone .... I hope this was only 1 in 1000000 error :roll:
That's what i wanted to hear...
Now I have to copy all the movies back ....
I heard that this isn't so uncommon as I like to think ...
There is a problem with the KiSS firmware for copyong to disk that also will be fixed in next release. (I tested this and it works fine now in the Beta 2.7.8 DP-508). There was still a little issue on loosing some bits but i've been told that's fixed too...
If the files are copied corrupt, you have to recopy them anyway...
I hope it won't happen again but hope is all we can offer until the next release is out...
Just copied about 15 movies using the cd-rom NOT LAN and it works great :)
No problems like those anoing disconnects using FTP.
I would still preffer to use FTP and avoid burning every movie
If u are using the dvd from KiSS to copy to hard drive...
You will loose bits along the way...
Movies will turn green and so on...
Known bug to be fixed in next release...
(Don't shoot the messemger)
Hmmm, tested couple of them and they all worked fine but I no longer holding my hopes to high ....
They will play fine but as you watch a whole movie, a bunch of 'em will turn green... Then you'll have to time search for making it normal again...
I have that alot when copying from dvd so i no longer do that...
No harm in trying though.
