View Full Version : My MCI900 Is Driving Me Crazy!

I recently recieved an MCI900 and it looks like a great device, but there are two things that are driving me crazy.
It Hangs a LOT, A moment I'm pressing a button on remote the next moment it's not responding and I have to unplug it.
The other problem is the HDD, When the device is freshly restarted, it detects the HDD and its content, a minute later it doesn't and no matter how many times I unplug the HDD cable and replug it, the device shows "No USB Devices Found".
I really didn't expect the device to be this Buggy. Are there any special reasons for these problems? Is there anyway to fix these? I'll need your experience on it.
Although based on your description, you seem to have a more severe problem, but please make sure that you have the latest firmware version installed in your MCi900. I believe the latest FW version is VC9.28S.

I've updated the firmware 3 days ago! but still the problems exist. I'm practically paralyzed without an HDD to run my files on. Come on Philips give me a hand here!
Also, thanks Tias
Right, so it sounds like a hardware failure to me.
If your MCi900 is within the warranty period, take it back to the shop for a replacement.

I'd love to do that but this device was a prize sent to me from over seas, and apparently nobody even knows this device here so there's no chance I can make any replacements or even fixing it. I thought it might be a common problem with this device, it seems that it isn't. but thanks for your advices, I really appreciate it.

Well I think I found the source of the problems, too many folders on the HDD, when I Deleted some of them both of the problems disappeared! But still sometimes it hangs. It's better altogether, at least it doesn't drive me crazy anymore.

If you have loaded lot of music on your HDD, then check what is the colour of the music icon in HDD mode. If it is yellow, leave the set on for a few hrs. Once the music symbol becomes white, then the MCi will work much better. If you are using wireless, you could also try a wired connection to the router.

Well if mean that I should let it update my music database that's what I intended to do in the beginning, I waited for it to update but after some time the HDD becomes unresponsive. So what I did was to reduce the amount of files on the HDD and it worked.
The limit is 40000 tracks ;)
But IIRC, there is some kind of limit of number of subfolder levels and even the amount of folders too. But I couldn't find any info in the manual of the MCi900 on this limitation, so I might be wrong.
