    Hi all,

    After about two months of impressive service, I took my HD3 out of my pocket this morning only to discover that the entire database had been wiped!!! Why-o-why-o-why-o-why!

    It was connected to my PC briefly last night, but I don't think anything was transfered to it.

    Has this happened to anyone else? Does anyone know what might cause this to happen.

    Before I decide to complain to sony and the retailer, I thought I'd open this up for comments - in case its something I've done :lease:

    Thanks

    Can you not reload the db from your Sonic stage?

    I could - but it would be more useful to know how I could avoid this happening again, if you see what i mean

    thats really odd, are the files still there? try using explorer to have a look in the drive and see if the actual files are still in there, if they arent perhaps you accidentaly reinitialised the drive?

    Turn off the player at the built on battery, then turn it on again.

    Both me and my mate had this problem with HD1s. It randomly decides it has no database, but turn it off/on again and it realises actually it does!

    What a co-incidence, mine did this for the forst time yesterday morning. After Sh*ting myself I decided to plug it back in to the usb cable check the contents in sonicstage and then it worked. Thank goodness!

    I have had this problem too, where it says 'no database found' ...you don't need to worry, if you re-connect the HD3 to the usb and power cable, look in your Removable Disk folder and you will see all the tracks there, if you 'refresh' close everything down, then unplug the usb power cable.... it should then say 'creating database' on your player, then all your tracks should be there........ it has happened to me 2 or 3 times......but it's them once you connect again......
