Subject: RE: HD Error...My baby won't boot!

1. No idea, but if you can access your drive, back up your files ! If the
disk is partially damaged it can die completly any moment...
2. For extreme condition like yours (or jogging...) I suggest using
mechanism-free player like any usbkey witch can play mp3/wma. You obviously
won't store a lot of music (from 64 to 512 megas, you can decrease the
bitrate as your listening condition may be bad while ridding a motorcycle...
with low bitrates, wma can sound better than MP3) but this can do the trick
during your "high speed motorcycle trip" :)

Good luck
Nicolas

Objet : HD Error...My baby won't boot!

Dear Brain Trust:

     After a fairly high-speed motorcycle trip, it appears as thought I've
done in my Studio 10. It will not boot up. I only get the HD Error
message. When I connect the USB to my PC, everything is completely normal.
I can navigate through all of the files without any problems. But it will
not boot.

    I would like your suggestions on two fronts. First, is there any way to
get my unit to boot and return to normal? If so, what should I do.

    Secondly, perhaps I need to rethink the appropriateness of my Studio 10
for motorcycling applications. Even with the Rockbox anti-skip protection
cranked up to the max, I was still getting consistent skipping problems. Is
there a better unit out there for my rough-and-tumble application? Is it
conceiveable to install a more robust hard drive into my Studio 10?

    In short, I would like to fix the current problem and take steps so that
I am not in this position again.

    As always, your expertise and insight is marveled at and greatly
appreciated.

Nick Brodich
