Video of my faulty RS Media

http://homepage.ntlworld.com/m.owen2/...

 

Can anyone help diagnose the problem from this video?

It is fitted with brand new batteries. It does the same with them removed and using PSU.

 

In a nutshell. No sound, No games, limited display but full functions otherwise. 

 

Any help please.

Seems to me that the Volume is at mute. Try to turn it up.

Save this file into a directory on your SD card called rsupdate, stick it in your RS Media, turn it on, wait a few minutes, turn it off, and send me the two text files (dmesg.txt and ls.txt) from the root directory of your SD card.

Hmm.... Nothing particularly useful there. Have to try something else. Something bad is going on though, your missing some important files.

Nocturnal, I am left with the impression that on booting up some of the files that would be part of the basic operating system have become corrupted or deleted, hence the partial features.

I can get my head around the fact that you can format the RS media drive, and without installing some kind of software it can reboot and run fine. I assume the os is on something like a eeprom, like a mobile phone and would require flashing or similar to reinstall the OS. But then seeing its a linux OS on the files suggests not? Undecided

Whether it helps you. When I ran the media with the sd card in place and the update file, the LCD displayed the wowwee flash screen all the time, and once it eventually started it did not respond to any media commands nor could you access any menu's. With the SD removed it was back to the same as in the video.

Not quite, the operating system is fine, WowWee's software is fine. What's missing is the links WowWee's software uses to find the various personality / interface files. WowWee's software is setup to look in one specific place for files, that place is essentially a whole lot of links to where the files actually reside. Not sure why WowWee did it like that, but there probably was a reason.

The RS Media has 5 partions on its Flash memory, when you format it, you are really only formatting one of the partitions.

When the SD card is inserted, and the right files exist, it stop the boot process part way through and executes the scripts from the SD card. The reason the WowWee log stayed on the screen and it did not respond to commands (though after a while it would have done the startup routine without sound) is because my script does not start WowWee's user interface software.

I've updated the script to include a few more tests. There should be an additional text file when you are done called mount.txt, and the ls.txt will be much bigger (i would recomened not posting it in the forum due to its size).

You have to admit that the files do look impressive when postingCool

 

Again thanks for your time.

Nocturnal, when you say 'formatting one of the partitions', do you mean by performing Restore as referenced in this WowWee tech support FAQ?

"- formatting RS Media
If you want to format your RS Media and return it to its original state (factory settings), you can use RS Media Editing Suite software to do so. In the RS Media Editing Suite software, go to Media Organizer and locate the Restore button. You will be prompted with a dialog box, following the on-screen instruction to format your RS Media.

After you reboot your RS Media, the factory settings should be restored (same as when you first booted him up) and all previously stored data will be erased."

 

Just a generic question, in the ls.txt, the "->" indicates a file link? (symbolic link, is it?)

Machman was saying he was having difficulty with the idea that you could format the RS Media and without installing anything, it would boot and function. I was explaining the how.

Yes -> indicates a symbolic link, those of you who don't use linux, think of it as similar to a shortcut under windows, only much better (you can actually treat links as files, unlike with shortcuts), and has been around forever.

You will notice that /lnk is empy, it should have a bunch of symbolic links.

Machman, I've created a script here that will attempt to fix the problem, copy it to the sd card and run it.

WaaaaaaHooooooo!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nocturnal YOU ARE THE MAN!!!!!!!Cool

Initial boot on the card made everything come back. Reboot without card seems to be the same. I am about to enjoy the Man Utd game so will complete a full test tomorrow. But its looks as though you have got it sussed. I new my money was safe.

 

Thanks from me and my now smiling 8 year old son and his 22 month old broLaughing

Oh, man, now I'm not sure I want an RSMedia.

I live and breathe Unix install quirks and foibles fifty hours a week. I'm not sure I want to reuse those skills on my "play" time.

I suppose it could be worse. 

I could be based on Windows. blarrrrrgh.

heh, WfW 3.11! Network! yay! 

Congrats machman and especially to the wiz Nocturnal! Do you think this may be a general solution?
Or perhaps each  dying RSM will have different  areas of files missing... I guess only time will tell.

I'm going to run the first listing script on my (healthy- knock wood) RSM to compare to Machman's (before the fixing), for my own curiosity.

I'm glad that fixed things for you machman.

Hey, WfW 3.11 was stable (or so my rusty memory suggests) it was 95 that introduced the BSOD wholesale.

I can confirm that this was a full fix for the problem. Thanks again NocturnalWink

Please-help-me-out-by-posting-a-step-by-step-sd-card-recovery of my rs media.

I've got the same fault without sound and blank screen etc..

I've already tried to format and restore method which both didn't work at all.

I've also tried to try using the sd card to solve but maybe i don't understand what files to put in the sd card and what i'm suppose to do. 

thanks

Save this file into a directory on your SD card called rsupdate, stick it in your RS Media, turn it on, wait a few minutes, turn it off...

You may also find the description of how to run a script off the sd card in this thread helpful.
