Hi all, it's time to bring this thread up one more time. I decided to bring a few Mk2a players back to life with 128GB SSDs, and I am experiencing similar timeout symptoms as those above. I am running in a single-drive configuration, and the errors occur in read-only playback mode (haven't tried uploading new music yet).

The errors generally follow this pattern:

Code:
hda: stat_timo: status=0xd0
show_message("0000.42 hda: err: stat_timo")
hda: drive not ready for command
ide0: reset timed-out, status=0xd0
hda: stat_timo: status=0xd0
show_message("0000.42 hda: err: stat_timo")
end_request: I/O error, dev 03:04 (hda), sector 1080024
hda: drive not ready for command
hda: stat_timo: status=0xd0
show_message("0000.42 hda: err: stat_timo")
hda: drive not ready for command
ide0: reset timed-out, status=0xd0
hda: stat_timo: status=0xd0
show_message("0000.42 hda: err: stat_timo")
hda: drive not ready for command

And a clean boot log is below. Any advice is appreciated. Thanks.

Here's an example of a problem log from a different player with the same model drive (Kingspec PA25-128). Once the problems begin, the player will not recover until I reboot. After a restart, it will happily pick up where it left off and continue to play for a while (sometimes minutes, sometimes hours).

Thanks to Tony and anyone else who had a hand in creating and restoring the lost FAQ. It's greatly appreciated to have it back again as a troubeshooting resource.

One more data point. In addition to the Kingspec PA25-128 drives, which are exhibiting the problems above, I set up a couple of players with IDE/mSATA adaptors. Specifically, the Chenyang mSATA mini PCI-E SATA enclosure, with a Goldendisk mSATA 128GB mini SSD. That combo seems to work just fine in the player. I've got one that's been running for over 48 hours straight with no issues.

All of the Kingspec drives are byte-copies of a master disk created using the Chenyang/Goldendisk combo, copied using dd on a Mac.

Here's the relevant logs for the good drive, in case it helps shed light on any differences with the errors on the Kingspec drives. I'm especially confused by the "attempt to access beyond end of drive" errors on the Kingspec.

Thanks for any insight or suggestions,

My rambling thoughts:

Note that your mSATA drive is a different size (capacity) than the PA25-128 drive.

And the PA25-128 might also be a different size (capacity) than your "master" drive. So doing a bit copy from, say, a larger master drive to a slightly smaller PA25-128 could result in the access errors you see. The PA25-128 simply does not have as many sectors as the software thinks it has.

03:04: rw=0, want=1972874128, limit=117113850

In this case, the capacity of the erring /dev/hda4 appears to be 117113850 blocks, where a block is two sectors. 117113850 * 2 = 234227702 sectors for that specific partition. This of course matches what fdisk also reports (234227700), since the two numbers come from exactly the same place.

Most of the errors show "want" blocks that are believable but slightly too large for the partition, but a few of the later ones are quite obviously WAYYY out of range.

I suggest perhaps you should run filesystem checks on /dev/hda4 on the failing drive to see what it says. Something there really looks mucked up from the diskcopy, or ??

Another way things could get messed up is if the old kernel on the empeg somehow has decided to use CHS addressing rather than LBA. That could also confuse the situation. Unfortunately, that kernel doesn't appear to print any indicator of which type of addressing it is using. Except for drives larger than 128GB where it will print LBA48 in the log.

EDIT: I suppose we can rule out CHS addressing, because it reduces the addressable capacity by QUITE A LOT more that what we are seeing here. So that part is likely just fine.

Are any of these issues similar to the ones I encountered when I upgraded to an SSD?

As a very late follow-up here, see this slightly newer thread, where I describe findings from using an identical counterfeit Kingspec drive:

I recently ran out of room on a 64GB SSD and decided to upgrade to a 128GB CF configuration.

I got the 128GB CF setup using the builder_bigdisk_v21.upgrade, restored all fids and dynamic data partition from the 'old' 64GB SSD drive (using a USB<>PATA adapter and a linux box), and things were going seemingly well. Music played fine, reboots were fine, etc.

I tried to add a new album to the player this morning and ran into all kinds of issues during the sync (tried with emplode and jemplode). Namely, the timeout issue that others have mentioned sporadically. Mine is repeatedly giving this message:


"2a40.3 hda: err: stat_timo"

Player infos:
Model: mk2a
Player: v2.01
Hijack: v525
PATA/CF adapter: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07QW5NRMH/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
CF card: https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07M5M5KYZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_image?ie=UTF8&psc=1
(The CF card adapter is the only device on the IDE)

Has anyone else run into something similar and figured out a solution?

Cheers!

Question: Have you tried, with that new 128gb CF, plain-formatting it (builder_bigdisk_v21.upgrade), and then see if you get errors when you sync an album to it, i.e., without copying fids or the dynamic partition first?

That way, you rule out any potential problems that may have been induced with the copy operation with the PATA adapter that you performed on the linux box.

If that works, then you could try doing the copying inside the player, with the instructions here (scroll to Step 7: Copying files (special circumstances only)).

Also, I'd like to ask Mark Lord his opinion about the CF card itself. You linked this card:

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07M5M5KYZ/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_image?ie=UTF8&psc=1

The labeling and text on that card seem to indicate that it is something slightly different than an ordinary CF card. Instead of "CF card" on the label it says "CFF Card". And the accompanying text says things like "features UDMA 7 to deliver fast transfer speeds when used with your DSLR or CF enabled Camera" and "incredible read speeds over traditional CF cards".

I'm wondering if that means it's not following the same specification as a normal CF card, and might be a SATA drive under the hood, instead of a PATA drive. I don't know enough about it though. Mark, do you know?

The card description (and Amazon reviews) look a bit iffy, yes. Kingston is being very cagey in the descriptions, but it sounds as if their firmware is doing "special things" for cameras, possibly at the expense of full compatibility.

Bummer. I suppose someday I should try and figure out those "status timeout" errors and introduce a workaround for them. Except I don't think I have anything on-hand that produces them.

Cheers

Okay, here's a rough guess. Give this Hijack kernel a try (attached).

You are great. I flashed builder_bigdisk_v21.upgrade and then immediately applied hijack_v525+.zImage before rebooting. Everything came back fine, no error messages, at least on the VFD wink

I loaded a few albums and changed a few config.ini items via emplode without issue, sync'ing several times.

Here is a boot log, for good measure...everything looks dandy to me:

Gotta update that timezone hahaha

Next, I think I will attempt to load all of the fids/dyn_data via USB-PATA adapter/linux and see how that behaves.

I will reply back with results cool

Cheers!

Good! Now we just need somebody with one of those non-Kingspec "Yansen" SSDs to give it a whirl. They were also failing with messages like that, I think -- gotta re-read the relevant thread.

Tony?

I notice that there is a 'new' file structure within ~/fids...I think I missed that while doing drive-shuffling last week.

When I added music to the player after flashing (detailed in the above post) it wrote all tracks to /drive0/fids/_00000/

If I have a directory of fids backed on a server, should I now restore them to /drive0/fids/_00000/ or restore them alongside _00000 in /drive0/fids/ ?

If so, I wonder if that would screw up a backed up image of /dev/hda3 (dyn_data)...

Restore them straight to /drive0/fids/ as they were before.

When done, login to the player and do this:

rwm ; fidsift.sh ; rom

I am ecstatic!

1. Copied the fids/dyn data onto the CF via linux box
2. Put it back in the empeg
3. Restored dyn data
4. Ran fidsift.sh
5. Sync'd via Emplode
6. Loaded a new album via emplode and changed some config.ini bits
7. Rebooted a few times...zero issues(!)
8. Finally, flashed hijack v526 over v525+

It's flawless now.

Mark, you are a wonderful human. Massive thanks!
And thank you Tony, for all of the hints!

I spoke too soon smirk

I just deleted an album via Emplode and it got stuck on "Remounting disks..." during the sync.

The drive activity LED on the adapter is fully lit (no fluctuation).

Everything else has been perfect though...and I am still ecstatic wink

Writing (including the "remount" part) can take _ages_ on PATA SSDs and CF Cards. Some are quicker than others on the empeg, and some are not. It doesn't always seem to be strictly related to the rated speed of the card/SSD.

So.. when it gets "stuck", give it a good 20 minutes at least before "pulling the plug"!

Cheers
