Re: [Official] Firmware_PV73100_v7.4.x.r7317
no replies since 9 jun. it's either good news and no-one is having troubles or it's bad news and people bought a new player...
Anyways, i had some troubles again running this firmware, i wanted to transfer some files from my pc to the player and since it was 44,2GB in total i didn;t want to do it over the network.
1MB/s (or 3,5MB/s immediately after a reboot) is just way too slow for that size.
So i wanted to transfer by USB.
As soon as i connected the cables i noticed Windows Explorer was reacting a lot slower.
Windows aksed me if i wanted to check the disk, clicked "yes" and then... nothing..
After 10 minutes still no progress so i canceled diskcheck (crashed windows explorer) and opened the D:\ drive (the player), it was empty, no folders or files.
So i unplugged the USB and plugged it back in, again a slow Explorer..
This time i said "NO" to diskcheck, opened D:\ en saw my files again after quite a while.
Finally i tried to copy my files to the player but now Windows said D. didn't exist..
So, rebooted the player, tried again, same message, again a slow explorer when the player was connected (after unplugging the USB Windows was fast again)
Rebooted Windows AND the player, same message, same problems no matter what i tried.
In the end i ripped open the player, put it in my PC (did a diskcheck, no problems on the drive) copied the files and put the drive back in the player, a LOT easier.
It's not the first time i've had these problems and all sollutions the moderaters are giving aren't helping, the only thing that could (should!) work is a new firmware.
NAS doesn't work and Samba is very very slow and you can't expect clients to remove the harddrive constantly just to transfer a file.
Oh, and don't tell me to flash the firmware again, tried that a LOT of times, never worked
