Hello there,
You dont say what was wrong when you said it was being 'fixed' and a Hard Drive and/ or CD added.
Has it been updated to V1.24 software which fixes a bug in hard drives formatting ? As per the release notes. http://www.akaipro.com/product/mpc2500#downloads


I would very much doubt there is problem with the IDE interface UNLESS this was the original reason you were having it fixed.

I would take it to the AUTHORISED AKAI PRO Dealer to have it inspected.and a PROPER understandable report given to you if the Machine still won't accept a Hard Drive or a CD mechanism.
Go to bottom of page here For AKAI PRO dealer near you. It cannot hurt to get a second opinion.

Can a dvd player be installed in the mpc 4000


The unit is designed for a CD unit. While a DVD player MIGHT work as a CD read and burner, it would not likely burn DVD's or read them.

You might try this site:

If the shaft/actuator snapped off a part on the board, then you will have to do unsoldering and soldering. Removing solder from the boards without the proper tools may damage the circuit board.

Os update promblems mpc 2500


Try this site:http://www.akaipro.com/mpc2500 Try downloading all the the release notes for ver.1.24 if you haven't already. Download the ver.1.24 which seems to be the newest to your computer first and install from there. It might have gotten corrupted the first time you tried it. You will have to email them using the form for the newest release notes and the installation instructions:http://www.akaipro.com/mpc2500 http://www.akaipro.com/content1924.html and http://www.akaipro.com/mpc2500 are the URLs you need. Hope this helps.

Why does my akai mpc2000xl take so long to boot up


This can have to do with several things. You might have a lot of sounds installed and have a lot of projects that you are working on. You can also have a small memory that is not improving the boot. You can expand your mpc memory, take a look at the link for an example:

About to record sounds and sequences to pro tools - all of a sudden the sounds do not play except for in trim mode - what happened???


Read the manual. I think you'll find that you've recorded them as sound bytes instead of full recordings. If that don't work get in touch with Akai.com. You paid good money for the machine and YOU ARE THE CUSTOMER.
Good Luck

How do you earse internal memerory


http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/AKAI/MPC2500-_E This is a free download. Try pages 14 and 15 also 23 also44 also page 66 also 83 also 90(purge samples) 103 (memory cards) 11 formatting page 108 deleting data in memory before loading, I'd suggest page 112 (save the contents by backing up to computer) then wiping the memory card. I don't have one of these units and I see the hard drive is an option which I don't know if you have. Read the manual from beginning top end and always save your work before deleting anything. Hope this helps.
