I have taken the case off the webplayer, I have located the 44pin ide connecter. I have used an adapter that lets you hook a laptop HD into your PC and I used it in reverse. The adapters 44pin female connection is hooked to the 44pin male connecter on the board. The 40 pin male connecter of the adapter is hooked to a standard 40 pin cable. The 40pin cable is wired to a 3.5" HD. I have an extra PC power supply for power to the 3.5" HD.
I turn on the HD, boot up the Webplayer, Press the "book" (F2) key and enter the password,
It does not detect the HD under the Main setting...
I go into I/O Device Config, Local Bus IDE adapter, and choose [Primary],
I set Installed O/S to [Win95] and Large Disk Access mode to [DOS]
It does not detect my HD under the Boot setting...
Exit and save.. reboot.. Still.. No HD..
I have tryed a few HDs and have tryed all the jumper settings on the HD..
I MUST be overlooking something simple..
Please help or post you HD problems here for us to all figure out..
