  • "This drive is not ready for use; it's door may be open ..."

    Hi.
    I recently updated to itunes 7, and then had an issue with a corrupt file on the i-pod (which resulted in chkdsk hanging itself at 27%, always). So I restored the i-pod and that took care of that - chkdsk now says it's fine.
    However - it is also empty. My machine and i-tunes recognize it fine upon start-up; however, a short while into a full synch to get my library back on the i-pod, I invariably get the following error message:
    "The drive is not ready for use; it's door may be open. Please check drive \Device\Harddisk\DR 3 and make sure that a disk is inserted and that the drive door is closed." The message comes with the options "cancel, ignore and continue", yet the latter two don't make a difference, and even if I choose cancel, itunes keeps trying until it eventually crashes.
    This always happens after itunes has synchronized about 1.13 GB (out of 18.55 available).
    As far as I can tell, both my system and the iPod are up to date (itunes and windows update say so, anyway). E: is unequivocally and exclusively allocated to the i-pod; changing the settings from "optimize for quick removal" to "optimize for performance" has made no discernible difference.
    Any ideas would be very much appreciated.
    Thanks.

    Hullo ...
    let me follow up on this again. I've followed your advice, de-installed spybot, no change. I looked through the windows support help base, nothing. While trying out different things, I started getting a "delayed write failed" message, and I did some things they suggested (including adjusting the registry - me, adjusting the registry!)and it went away, and now all I get is the "open door" message again.
    That is: everything works absolutely fine, I plug in the i-pod (latest version i-tunes and i-pod is up to date), it's recognized instantly by the explorer as well as i-tunes. I've run all scans you can possibly run on it, and it is fine (no corrupt files, nothing). I've restored it twice through i-tunes, twice through the explorer. I've changed the drive letter.
    It starts the synch fine (it's still almost empty after the last restore), but at some point, I get the error message. Interestingly enough, *up to* that point, it'll synch fine - I can disconnect it and play on it whatever's been synched thus far. I can also modify my i-tunes settings and preferences, all of which i-tunes will recognize and adhere to. It is just unwilling to put more than 1GB of stuff onto my 20GB i-pod.
    Something I've noticed is that it is sometimes indicating apparently faulty charges in the beginning (though that is quickly corrected once the synch starts), as in, it'll recognize a certain amount of audio files, but also claim a random amount of "other" files, which should not be there (apart from the 30MB or so of genuine i-pod software).
    Anyhow. I haven't seen any solutions to this on the forums or in the apple help files, but people appear to be having this problem still. Any ideas or input would be very much appreciated ...
    Thanks.

  • Solaris 8 on netra T1 error - drive not ready

    Hi I am hoping someone can help shed light on a problem we have encountered. I inherited a couple of very old netra t1 with solaris 8 on them.  We had a major power outage whcih resulted in an issue with this server coming backup.  On first looking at it i was able to get into the server via lom command prompt, i ran the power down command to gracefully shutdown and reboot but on starting backup the server is reporting 'drive not ready' and just hangs at this point.
    apologies but i am a solaris novice, any help would be much appreciated. I am hoping this is something trivial....
    thanks.

    Just to update we suffered another power outage and returned to look at hte server to find different error messages appearing, this time the server was giving me the option to try and boot or go into single user mode, which i did and ran the metastat and got the following:-

  • Drive not ready for use, door may be open

    iTunes transfers about 800mb of content before error message appears:
    The drive is not ready for use; its door may be open. Please check drive\...
    I have restored, formatted, tried different PC's always get same result. Visited genius bar and they declared that my iPod was healthy but refused to move enough content to the iPod to reproduce the problem. iPod is a little under 2 yrs old.
    My confidence and respect regarding Apple and it's products is now greatly in question. I spent $400 duchats on this thing and I am starting to feel like an unappreciated client.
    Thanks for any help...

  • Can not read or write to mac hard drive error

    When attempting to transfer music files from an external usb harddrive formatted in windows into Itunes, I can only successfully import a small fraction of the music, and then its stops with a error, that the Mac HD can not read or write files.

    It's possible the file names have some 'funky' characters in them that the Mac doesn't like ?
    What format is the external drive ?

  • "The drive is not ready for use; its door may be open. Please check drive \

    3G IPOD problems which are driving me mad and i can see others have had the same problem but i can't find any solution written down.
    Basically my IPOD either freezes after a couple of songs or it downloads about 6Gb (of 40) and the freezes with the following message:
    "The drive is not ready for use; its door may be open. Please check drive \Device\Harddisk2\DR6 and make sure that a disk is inserted and that the drive door is closed"
    I've tried re-setting, installing etc but no luck. Any suggestions/solutions?

    Hmmmm. I'm not sure how to explain this.
    You need to change the Drive Letter for your iPod.
    You should be able to connect your iPod then open Windows Explorer and right click on your iPod(which seems to be Drive E:) and change it to a different letter (like H).
    If you haven't enabled disk use for your iPod it probably won't appear in Windows Explorer.
    To enable disk use: connect iPod, open iTunes. Open Preferences and select the iPod tab. Choose "enable disk use."
    Once you've done all that, try resyncing.

  • Windows error msg:  "Can not write to drive G: Joe's iPod"

    Halfway thru the download process (1780 songs) from itunes to my ipod I get a windows error msg:
    "Can not write to file G: Joe's ipod. All the data has been lost. Check for an error on your computer or network."
    Getting the error msg: " Can not write to drive G: Joe's ipod. All data has been lost, your computer or network may have failed."
    "Windows/ My computer" shows my ipod as drive G: and itunes starts up properly when I plug my ipod into my firewire port. About halfway thru the download (1780 songs) the transfer from itunes to my ipod stops and I get the above error message. (Never worked with USB). I am not on a network.
    According to tech supt, I have:
    -Installed Service Pack 2,
    -Restored ipod to factory settings
    -Installed update 5.0.1. Everything worked fine last Feb with the version 4 of itunes when I first loaded everything up.
    Have tried to reinstall version 4, but no luck.
    My ipod charges fine thru the firewire cable.
    Any ideas?? Thanx anyone.

    Joe,
    I am having the same problem, did you ever solve it, please email me at [email protected] with any help

  • Error message: "the drive is not ready"

    Hi
    I have an 20 GB ipod that I bought a few years ago (the one with the dock connector) and a few weeks ago it started to give me problems.
    I can't transfer all my music from itunes to my ipod as the following message pops up after transfering about 2500 songs
    "the drive is not ready for use; its door may be open. Please check drive\device\hardisk\DR7and make sure that the disk is inserted and the drive door is closed"
    I have tried restoring the ipod and updating it with the 2005-10-12 updater. I have also updated itunes and checked both my c drive and the ipod harddrive for viruses, to no avail!!!!
    I don't really know what to do next so if anyone has had a similar problem and has any suggestions on how I might fix it then I would be very very grateful
    Thanks
    dell optiplex gx220   Windows 2000  

    argh i have the exact same problem...
    i bought my first ipod in june 04... may 05 i began getting connection and battery problems and so i sent it back... i recieved a new ipod of the same kind... black and white display, dock connector.. the four buttons at the top instead of on the wheel. now, four months after receiving my second ipod, i am getting more battery and connection problems, although they are not the same ones.
    last week i got the same message you got and after doing the same things you did i gave up when it still didnt work. i today tried again to update. instead of messages like i recieved before about drive doors being open (after it had transferred 1000 songs might i add) i got absolutely nothing from my pc or itunes (which was open and playing a pearl jam song) and my ipod turned itself off (even though it has full battery). i originally believed that the source of my problems is that my ipod was dropped by my 3 year old brother onto my tiled family room floor (at it froze often) but knowing that others have similar problems im not so sure..
    i have no idea how to fix this and i dont particularly wish to send my ipod back to apple and pay $250 for repairs, (for a second time), if that did result i would wait and buy myself an ipod photo for an extra few hundred dollars.
    anywho.. if anybody at all knows anything that could possibly work that i havent done (not including calling apple customer service, i tried that last time and the indian man at the other end of the line was absolutely no help.) your help would be greatly appreciated
    Thanks

  • Windows - Drive Not Ready - isFile()

    When checking to see if a file [using isFile() ] exists on a drive I get this dialog error message in Windows XP:
    Windows - Drive Not Ready
    Exception Processing Message c00000a3Parameters 75b6bf7c 75b6bf7c 75b6bf7c
    I get this message if there is no media in the drive such as if I make the check on an empty floppy drive.
    Is there any way to check if their is a media in the floppy drive before deciding to check if there is a certain file on it with isFile()?
    Trying to catch the error does not seem to work - the error seems to originate from somewhere in the OS rather than from java.
    How do I get rid of this error message? I have upgraded to JDK 1.5 - the problem did not occur in JDK 1.2 so somehow that earlier version was able to avoid this problem.
    This is part of the code:
    String iniFileName = DEFAULTINIFILENAME;
    File[] possibleRoots = getAllPossibleRoots(); // Mostly a call to File.listRoots() with some fixes
    File possibleIniFile = null;
    Vector allFoundIniFiles = new Vector();
    for (int possibleLocationNo = 0 ; possibleLocationNo < possibleRoots.length ; possibleLocationNo++) {
    possibleIniFile = new File(possibleRoots[possibleLocationNo], File.separator + iniFileName); if (possibleIniFile.isFile()) {

  • Drive not ready for use

    I've got the exact same issue with an Ultra 60 on which I'm attempting to install Solaris 9. I've tried replacing the drive, replacing the CD, using the external SCSI connection and nothing works. Each time I attempt a boot cdrom I get the following error:
    Boot device: /pci&#64;1f,4000/scsi&#64;3/disk&#64;6,0:f File and args:
    Drive not ready
    Can't read disk label
    Can't open disk label package
    Can't open boot device
    probe-scsi-all shows that my drive is being recognized.
    What am I doing wrong?
    Thanks in advance for any assistance anyone can provide.

  • "Drive not ready" can't boot the Sun Enterprise 250 Server 400MHz

    Hi,
    Because I can't ping it and got no response on the console, so I had to reboot the E250 server.
    When I reboot SUN E250, I got the following message on the console and then it stops.

    Anyone knows what's the problem and how can I fix it?
    Cheers

    You either have a mechanically or electronically failed disk drive or else your Operating System (I an presuming it is Solaris on that SPARC system) is completely mucked up.
    If it is the OS at issue, you will need to install everything fresh.
    If it is the 18GB disk drive, you will need to replace it and install everything fresh.
    Either way, at some point you will have to go get your OS installation media and install everything fresh. The solution is not that difficult to understand.
