Well,

I changed to the older CF card, loaded 1.48 now, and all seems fine again.

Going to load the corrupted cf card with the file Chris provided just in case. Hope to update through the interface of loading .bin files as we're used to ;-)

Then see what happens.

Wim, did you load the latest beta firmware? the one that corrupted to error 09 in the first place, or is there a newer version already?

And then: the corrupted CF card has 2 partitions: No Name and User. Where to write the new image to? Disk Utility on the Mac is somewhat different from what Chris describes in his manual with win 32 disk imager.

Diskutiliy gives this unfortunately:

Marius,

I'm still busy trying to get the thing operational again. I will first try the ManicMoose firmware that was actually working (latest but one) but that does not give me acces to the 'advanced page' anymore,....
Now I have a kind of non-opertional demo-version somehow. I loaded version 1129 but it is not working! looks like I will have to start all over again and load loony lone again. Maybe I'll leave it at that for the time being. The 'beta'-factor of Manic Moose is a little to big to be comfortable.

I don't have (and don't want) any experience with Mac OS, I'm using Windows 8. So far Chris procedures are fine, but there is definitly something wrong with beta 1204!
I had to connect with SSH on version 1129 to correct for some things (just followed chris' procedure)

UPDATE: Now I have  version 1204 on the bdp1, without error 09. But the interface looks like it is is nothing more than a non-functional demo version.
I also can't play any files on the attached USB drive and most certainly not on the NAS drives. Even using the local buttons I'm not able to get something playing

Wim



UPDATE2  Error 09 is back again !

I'll load stable release LoonyLoon again and stay with that. Manic Moose is somehow corrupted,....

I've been running 1204 for the last two days on my BDP-2 without issue. I wonder if it's somehow hardware related to the BDP-1. Is there a table of error code references?

I also had this error and once cleared couldn't play any tunes, so reverted back to the old firmware  - may try again in the future when more stable or upon release some time next year.

Back to Loony Loon S1.73 2013-07-02 again,

pff. took some, but finally got it working again. Even managed to re-image the corrupted Cf card on a desolate windows machine in the household....
All I can say is, have a spare cf card with an appropriate working version of the firmware at hand before upgrading to this beta-cycle, so all you have to do is flip those cards just in case. Then you have the ease to try fixing your corrupted card, while playing songs on your BDP...

Chris, any thoughts on what went wrong with the latest instalment?

I'm having exactly the same problem !!!  Also after the latest firmware update .....1204

Error 09 


UPDATE: I reloaded the  LoonyLoon but it gives me the same error 09 !

Looks like the update bricked my BDP1,....   :nono:

UPDATE 2 : I repeated the whole procedure and hey it's working again (on LoonyLoon)  :scratch:
UPDATE 3: the moment I load ManicMoose again (folowing the procedures) It gives me 'error 09' again.  :duh:

Did the DAC still get lock just before the error 09 appears?

Hi Marius,

I have posted another document explaining how to use a command line tool to restore the image.  Let me know if it isn't clear.

Yah, 12 04 introduced a new build of the web interface that has been causing many difficulties, they should be fixed sometime next week.

As far as I remeber correctly, yes!
Now everything is ok again on LoonyLoon, but the moment I load ManicMoose the BDP1 is dead in the water (with or without error 09) even ManicMoose releases that worked before are now nothing more than some sort of interactive screensaver. The BDP1 is not responding to any function and can not play music!
So back to LoonyLoon,... 
But on the possitive side: I can now load firmware to the bdp1 and change flash cards with my eyes closed!  :lol:

Its been fine on both a BDP-1 and BDP-2, but James also had problems with the upgrade.

HI Chris,

I seem to have managed on a windows machine, but where did you post this document? found it! https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/86196657/DOCS/BDP%20image%20Mac%20OS%20X.pdf
thanx

Today I repeated the whole procedure. Upgrading from LoonyLoon to ManicMoose and then upgrading to version 1204.
The final result: error 09 !

Hi Marius,

Beta's will continue at some point in time after we have resolved file system corruption issues plagued by the Dec 4 firmware.

Hi Guys,

I've posted a december 13 update and have tested it at work on numerous BDP-1/2's as well as at home and haven't been able to repeat the problem which seemed to have been the boot loader and/or filesystem being truncated to zero bytes which seemed to be occurring from the filesystem checks being done during startup and after a firmware upgrade.  This firmware update has replaced the previous manic moose update that is used when using the firmware20131031.bin file used to upgrade from loony loon.

Cheers,
Chris

so we download it by clicking the original 20131031.bin link in the pdf in the first post of this thread? it is


You did well! Up and running. And no error 09 yet. finger crossed.

Not playing anything yet, as i believe it has to load all tracks afresh into its database? Maybe you could add some feedback about that into the display, as with having to reboot manually after  the "repartitioning part three"  stage. I was waiting for my network to see the gdb to no avail before that...

Cheers!

HI Chris,

Playing through Manic Moose is not as easy as through Mpod yet, but what's most remarkable is that every Media-listing on the right side browser has the last entry first.. :scratch:




or




not so on mpod/mpad...

I'm going to try and Finnish off the first "round" of getting the settings pages done and start over on the media player.
