Subject: Re: ATA Error -52 HELP! WORSE NEWS
From: SteamShip (steamship_at_sbcglobal.net)
Date: 2003-12-13


No if you read my PLEA for help talking about just replacing the 4 NiMH
batteries and it being a model 50277 you would see that it is neither a FMT
nor V2. PLEASE DON'T USE MY PLEA FOR HELP AS A WAY TO BASH A MODEL FOR YOUR
OWN SELFISH AGENDA!

I am posting a problem that greatly concerns me, asking for help as to what
is wrong, not to give you a soapbox to fight about some other issue. CAN
ANYONE TELL ME WHAT THIS MEANS, AND WHY? DID I DO SOMETHING WRONG?
