6. Appendixes
6.1 Specifications
Note: The specifications and design of this product are subject to change without notice.
6.2 Frequently Asked Questions
Question 1. My computer does not recognize my player.
Answer:
(1) Make sure the player is powered on. If it is off, the computer will not be able to find the
player;
(2) Make sure the player is connected to computer. (Refer to 1.4.1 for connecting player to
computer);
(3) When using Windows 98SE, install the USB driver first. After installation, restart the
computer. Then reconnect the player to the computer. (Refer to 1.4.1 for connecting player to
computer);
(4) If you installed the Windows 98SE driver over your Windows® XP, 2000, or ME edition,
problems might occur;
(5) It is not recommend using the USB ports in the front of your computer, try to use the USB
22 / 30
Downloaded from www.vandenborre.be
ports in the rear, because the USB ports in the front are often from non-powered hubs.
Question 2. When I try to disconnect the USB device, I keep on getting “The device
‘Generic volume’ cannot be stopped right now. Try stopping the device again later.”
message, what should I do?
Answer:
Close any program that might be accessing data on the player, including Windows® Explorer.
If it does not work, close all programs and wait for another 20 seconds, then try the green
arrow icon again. If it still does not work, you should shut down the player and disconnect the
USB cable.
Question 3. I find new file names and folder names that I never created before or they
have strange gibberish names.
Answer:
Most likely, the player’s file allocation table (FAT) has been corrupted. This might be due to
the player shutting down (due to low battery power) while reading or writing to your computer
by the USB connection. Windows and Macintosh often write extra files to the hard disk such
as finder.def or System volume info. These are normal and will not do any harm to the player.
Question 4. I used my player to transfer files back and forth between different
computers. Will defragmenting the player hard disk do any harm to it?
Answer:
Defragmenting the player hard disk may be useful after having transferred many files to and
from the player. It is never harmful to use the defragment on the player. Make sure no other
programs are running while using the Windows® defragment utility. Make sure you have
connected the player with the external power adapter during this procedure.
Question 5. My files have disappeared from the player.
Answer:
Make sure that you browse your files via the correct Browser mode which means correct
filtered views such as Photos, Music, or Movies.
Question 6. Why do some supported photo formats, cannot be shown in the photo
function?
Answer:
In the JPEG format there are different modes. The player doesn’t support all the modes. So
you have to change your photo format first as follow:
(1) Use Photoshop to open the photo;
(2) Choose ”File” then “save as” from the menu, as the picture on the left hand side shows,
select the picture format as JPEG, input the file name and click the “save” icon;
(3) After click on the “save” icon, a new window will appear as the picture on the right hand
side shows, select “Baseline (standard)” or “Baseline optimized”;
23 / 30
Downloaded from www.vandenborre.be
(4) Click the “OK” icon.
Question 7. During power on, why does the TV will have a short flashing, blue screen
or screensaver?
Answer:
This is normal, when the system initializes, it will setup the corresponding parameters so it
can output the correct video signal to the TV, during the initializing time, the TV will receive
incorrect signals or the signals will not be stable and will cause the TV screen to flash, some
TV’s will treat this as no signal, and will display a blue screen or screensaver.
Question 8. Why when I switch to Y/Pb/Pr 480P, 576P, 720P, 1080I, does the TV screen
display an unwatchable picture?
Answer:
Please check if your TV supports Y/Pb/Pr 480P, 576P, 720P, 1080I output, if your TV does not
support, please use the A/V signal display instead, press the TV SYSYEM button on the
remote control, then switch the TV’s video input to NTSC or PAL.
Question 9. Why is there no sound on movie or music playback when using Y/Pb/Pr
component output?
Answer:
Y/Pb/Pr output is a video output only, and does not include sound signals, when using
Y/Pb/Pr output, please plug the A/V OUT or the S/PDIF jack to output sound.
Question10. Why couldn’t the player find the hard disc?
Answer:
Make sure the firmware is installed correctly, and no system partitions on the HDD were
deleted. If hard disc failure occurs, please backup your data and reinstall the firmware using
the firmware in the Driver CD which is provided along with the player.
Question11. While playing movies in the multimedia partition, buttons like PREV, NEXT,
A-B, etc. sometimes could not be used.
24 / 30
Downloaded from www.vandenborre.be
Answer:
The above functions are designed for IFO (DVD) files only.
Question 12. I cannot get SSID name, the screen always displays: ‘Can’t get any
SSID!!’
Answer:
When the WLAN USB Adapter is connected to the player, it needs some time to get initialized.
Please wait for about 1~2 minutes and try again. Then it will work properly.
Question 13. I configured everything correctly, but still cannot get the wireless network
connected.
Answer:
Are you using a firewall such as Norton Internet Security, McAfee Personal Firewall, Zone
Alarm, etc. or even the built-in firewall of Windows XP? (Don’t forget that Service Pack 2 for
Windows XP automatically upgrades your firewall and turn it on by default)
If you have a firewall, it may need to be configured or have exceptions created to allow you to
see and communicate with the player on the network. To test if your firewall is preventing
network communication (including PING and access shared folders), try disabling it to see if
you can connect. If you can connect with the firewall disabled, you may need to add the
player to the ‘Trusted’ list or configure the firewall for local intranet access. Worst-case,
disable your firewall long enough to use the player, then enable it again when done.
Question 14. When I am using the NAS function, I cannot copy files to the player.
Answer:
Please check the file system format of the hard disc drive partitions on the player. NTFS
partitions are read-only on the system. Therefore, files cannot be written onto any NTFS
partitions via the NAS mode. However, you can copy the files you wish to the NTFS partitions
via a USB cable.

These requirements apply to the modified work as a whole. If identifiable sections of that work
are not derived from the Program, and can be reasonably considered independent and
separate works in themselves, then this License, and its terms, do not apply to those sections
when you distribute them as separate works. But when you distribute the same sections as
part of a whole which is a work based on the Program, the distribution of the whole must be
on the terms of this License, whose permissions for other licensees extend to the entire
whole, and thus to each and every part regardless of who wrote it.
Thus, it is not the intent of this section to claim rights or contest your rights to work written
entirely by you; rather, the intent is to exercise the right to control the distribution of derivative
or collective works based on the Program. In addition, mere aggregation of another work not
based on the Program with the Program (or with a work based on the Program) on a volume
of a storage or distribution medium does not bring the other work under the scope of this
License.
3.You may copy and distribute the Program (or a work based on it, under Section 2) in object
code or executable form under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above provided that you also do
one of the following:
a) Accompany it with the complete corresponding machine-readable source code, which must
be distributed under the terms of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for
software interchange; or,
b) Accompany it with a written offer, valid for at least three years, to give any third party, for a
charge no more than your cost of physically performing source distribution, a complete
machine-readable copy of the corresponding source code, to be distributed under the terms
of Sections 1 and 2 above on a medium customarily used for software interchange; or,
c) Accompany it with the information you received as to the offer to distribute corresponding
source code. (This alternative is allowed only for noncommercial distribution and only if you
received the program in object code or executable form with such an offer, in accord with
Subsection b above.)
The source code for a work means the preferred form of the work for making modifications to
it. For an executable work, complete source code means all the source code for all modules it
contains, plus any associated interface definition files, plus the scripts used to control
compilation and installation of the executable. However, as a special exception, the source
code distributed need not include anything that is normally distributed (in either source or
binary form) with the major components (compiler, kernel, and so on) of the operating system
on which the executable runs, unless that component itself accompanies the executable.
If distribution of executable or object code is made by offering access to copy from a
27 / 30

designated place, then offering equivalent access to copy the source code from the same
place counts as distribution of the source code, even though third parties are not compelled to
copy the source along with the object code.
4.You may not copy, modify, sublicense, or distribute the Program except as expressly
provided under this License. Any attempt otherwise to copy, modify, sublicense or distribute
the Program is void, and will automatically terminate your rights under this License. However,
parties who have received copies, or rights, from you under this License will not have their
licenses terminated so long as such parties remain in full compliance.
5.You are not required to accept this License, since you have not signed it. However, nothing
else grants you permission to modify or distribute the Program or its derivative works. These
actions are prohibited by law if you do not accept this License. Therefore, by modifying or
distributing the Program (or any work based on the Program), you indicate your acceptance of
this License to do so, and all its terms and conditions for copying, distributing or modifying the
Program or works based on it.
6.Each time you redistribute the Program (or any work based on the Program), the recipient
automatically receives a license from the original licensor to copy, distribute or modify the
Program subject to these terms and conditions. You may not impose any further restrictions
on the recipients' exercise of the rights granted herein. You are not responsible for enforcing
compliance by third parties to this License.
7.If, as a consequence of a court judgment or allegation of patent infringement or for any
other reason (not limited to patent issues), conditions are imposed on you (whether by court
order, agreement or otherwise) that contradict the conditions of this License, they do not
excuse you from the conditions of this License. If you cannot distribute so as to satisfy
simultaneously your obligations under this License and any other pertinent obligations, then
as a consequence you may not distribute the Program at all. For example, if a patent license
would not permit royalty-free redistribution of the Program by all those who receive copies
directly or indirectly through you, then the only way you could satisfy both it and this License
would be to refrain entirely from distribution of the Program.
If any portion of this section is held invalid or unenforceable under any particular
circumstance, the balance of the section is intended to apply and the section as a whole is
intended to apply in other circumstances.
It is not the purpose of this section to induce you to infringe any patents or other property right
claims or to contest validity of any such claims; this section has the sole purpose of protecting
the integrity of the free software distribution system, which is implemented by public license
practices. Many people have made generous contributions to the wide range of software
distributed through that system in reliance on consistent application of that system; it is up to
the author/donor to decide if he or she is willing to distribute software through any other
system and a licensee cannot impose that choice. This section is intended to make thoroughly

clear what is believed to be a consequence of the rest of this License.
8.If the distribution and/or use of the Program is restricted in certain countries either by
patents or by copyrighted interfaces, the original copyright holder who places the Program
under this License may add an explicit geographical distribution limitation excluding those
countries, so that distribution is permitted only in or among countries not thus excluded. In
such case, this License incorporates the limitation as if written in the body of this License.
9.The Free Software Foundation may publish revised and/or new versions of the General
Public License from time to time. Such new versions will be similar in spirit to the present
version, but may differ in detail to address new problems or concerns.
Each version is given a distinguishing version number. If the Program specifies a version
number of this License which applies to it and "any later version", you have the option of
following the terms and conditions either of that version or of any later version published by
the Free Software Foundation. If the Program does not specify a version number of this
License, you may choose any version ever published by the Free Software Foundation.
10.If you wish to incorporate parts of the Program into other free programs whose distribution
conditions are different, write to the author to ask for permission. For software which is
copyrighted by the Free Software Foundation, write to the Free Software Foundation; we
sometimes make exceptions for this. Our decision will be guided by the two goals of
preserving the free status of all derivatives of our free software and of promoting the sharing
and reuse of software generally. NO WARRANTY
11.BECAUSE THE PROGRAM IS LICENSED FREE OF CHARGE, THERE IS NO
WARRANTY FOR THE PROGRAM, TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED BY APPLICABLE LAW.
EXCEPT WHEN OTHERWISE STATED IN WRITING THE COPYRIGHT HOLDERS AND/OR
OTHER PARTIES PROVIDE THE PROGRAM "AS IS" WITHOUT WARRANTY OF ANY
KIND, EITHER EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED, INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, THE
IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR
PURPOSE. THE ENTIRE RISK AS TO THE QUALITY AND PERFORMANCE OF THE
PROGRAM IS WITH YOU. SHOULD THE PROGRAM PROVE DEFECTIVE, YOU ASSUME
THE COST OF ALL NECESSARY SERVICING, REPAIR OR CORRECTION.
12.IN NO EVENT UNLESS REQUIRED BY APPLICABLE LAW OR AGREED TO IN
WRITING WILL ANY COPYRIGHT HOLDER, OR ANY OTHER PARTY WHO MAY MODIFY
AND/OR REDISTRIBUTE THE PROGRAM AS PERMITTED ABOVE, BE LIABLE TO YOU
FOR
DAMAGES,
INCLUDING
ANY
GENERAL,
SPECIAL,
INCIDENTAL
OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES ARISING OUT OF THE USE OR INABILITY TO USE THE
PROGRAM (INCLUDING BUT NOT LIMITED TO LOSS OF DATA OR DATA BEING
RENDERED INACCURATE OR LOSSES SUSTAINED BY YOU OR THIRD PARTIES OR A
FAILURE OF THE PROGRAM TO OPERATE WITH ANY OTHER PROGRAMS), EVEN IF
SUCH HOLDER OR OTHER PARTY HAS BEEN ADVISED OF THE POSSIBILITY OF SUCH
