Question about Mustek PVR-H140 Digital Media Player
After reading some other users I thought I had the same simple problem: the software got corrupt,with only a fixed screen (the PVR light blue and the word "Initialize" in a corner) and then the player turns off. The procedure looked simple: to restore the software connecting the device to the PC and then, replacing the files. But... My PC doesn't recognize the PVR as a USB device. I tried with other two computers (with the PVR software installed) and none recognized the PVR as a device with a HDD inside. I cannot find the way to replace or restore the files.
Any Idea?? :-(
Press the power and menu buttons at the same time to restore the disk but will wipe out everything in it

Problem is once the hard drive is corrupted you can't access usb to fix the problem. You have to remove the four screws on the back cover remove the 40gig hard drive. Find a laptop or an ide to usb adapter to reformat the drive. Must be fat32 not ntsf. Then copy all files back onto drive.

It sounds like you have a bad hd in your unit, i just had a pvr-h140 given to me. i restored the software on it but, the player is bad i can only use it for a portible hd and card reader
p.s. i've used quite a few mustek products over the years and they all have been junk. i surely wouldn't bought anything from mustek.... i know better!!!!!!
