I have spent about 6 hours so far today trying to get this bloody thing to work. I charged it overnight last night. This morning, it still said, “Connected” with the jagged arrows on the screen from the pc icon to the media icon (whatever you call those things). Anyway, I unplugged it because it had been charging for roughly 10 hours and I figured that’d be enough. But, when I press the menu button, it says, “record” and there is no menu. The arrows on the dial turn on and off the recording, but I can’t get to the menu.
I read on several sites about updating the firmware. I did that. I installed the auto update and had it scan. Firmware is updated. I see several references to formatting the drive using the menu options. But, I can’t get to the menu.
I got this for my son to take on a trip he’s leaving for tomorrow morning. It would be sooo nice to get this working so he can take it with him.
Any help would be appreciated.
