Upgrading Jukebox to 20GB HD Problem
I followed the instructions. After copying I installed the IBM Travelstar 20GB HD into the Jukebox, it booted fine. However when I tried to format the drive by "Keep then 'Play' as well as the 'Stop'-button pushed after the Jukebox displayed the 'EAX' " the jukebox just booted as normal. I re-installed the original drive, but could not format it either. I tried all sorts of different combinations of buttons and timing but have not been able to format either the original jukebox drive or the new 20GB drive. I do have the newer 2.56 Firmware, I wonder if the format command has been locked out in this update. Could any one out there email me an older firmware or enlighten me to what is going wrong.
To format push EAX+Middle Softkey+Down Scroll and while holding these 3 keys down push the forward arrow to turn it on. Continue to hold these 3 keys down until the jukebox boots up. There will be a menu for fromat or cleanup. It is necessary to use the ac power for this.
