Subject: Major AJR20 Issues! HELP!?!
From: R Doe (i_r0x0r3d_j00_at_hotmail.com)
A couple weeks ago my AJR20 starting flaking out on me. It would appear and
disappear constantly when connected to my computer and wasn't starting up
reliably. I figured the problem was the HD (as I had been hearing a lot of
clicks while experiencing the problems). I ordered a 60GB Travelstar as a
replacement which I recieved today. I formatted the drive using FAT32 (one
60 GB partition) and can reliably access it using my PC. When I install it
in the AJR20 I run into more problems. Most of the time, the unit will hang
on the third or fourth bar of the boot screen. I hear the hard drive spin
up and click a few times as though the firmware is searching for something.
On occasion, the unit will finish booting and will give me an error about
not being able to access the HD. Finally, once or twice the unit has booted
successfuly but I did not have any MP3s on the drive to test. I'm confident
that the old 20GB drive is defective as I ran into problems copying to it
using my PC, however, I'm beginning to wonder if it was the only problem.
When I plug the DC adapter into the AJR20 (while it is off), it boots up
perfectly and goes into the charging screen. Does anyone have any ideas for
me? Am I stuck with an extremely expensive paperweight?
