Phatnoise Hardware Support / Re: Cradle power
« Last post by mdp on February 10, 2018, 06:18:02 pm »
Hi there,

At some point there has been a windows update in which usb drivers, to let windows see your dms, were deleted.
Take apart your dms and insert the hdd into usb to idee adaptor. The new adaptor is much faster. One problem I encounter is ‘ejected’ is performed correctly due to conflict with rights.
I save eject on hardware in windows it self. Had no problem with this detour.

Just take care of connecting the hdd right into the idee port. In my case a msata to idee adaptor to fit a 250 gb mSata hdd. Notice the missing pin on the downside (onderzijde).

Yours mdp

I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think you need to change anything. Of course the power must match what you have. I mean 120 or 220 volts (I don't remember if the adaptor is auto-sensing), but nothing else.

Maybe you could just check if the adapter is providing the right voltage. If it's not working it's a pretty standard one, so you could use another one. I've used a universal laptop adapter sometime.

If the adapter works you'll need to check if the cradle is working. And that's too much for me to help you :). I opened it once because the switch that turns it on when you put the DMS in it was broken, and I don't remember the electronics to be very complicated, but anyway too difficult for me.

Something else you can do: if your cradle doesn't work, you can use an USB-to-ATA adapter. The software works just fine with that setup too.


Ps. Welcome to the wonderful (and ancient) world of Phatbox :)

Hi all,
Bit late to the world of Phatbox but have just bought my first.  ;D
Quick question regarding the cradle/docking station. As it's imported from US do i need to alter any wiring- there is no power delivered to the unit at all- no LEDs light up. No PC detection. 
Thanks in advance

Sounds like the partitions might have gone corrupt, which might be an early indication of a failure on the DMS.

You can use the tools to re-create the partition, but you'll have to re-load the DMS contents if you don't have a backup of PHTDTA.

I have a new (to me) DMS. I do not have PHTDTA partition, only the PHTSYS shows.

Via "Device Manager", my DMS cartridge, I only see the PHTSYS partition. NO PHTDTA. It's like it's not there.

The DMS is not recognized by the Music Manager or Phatbox player.

Help please.

Still looking?  Are you handy making your own cables?

Ask the right question.

Deep Throat here.

I have all the answers, and I do mean all, even those you don't even know exist.   Just ask the right questions.  No question, no matter how detailed and previously unanswered (save for one), I can provide the info.

Ask away.

Phatnoise Media Manager / Where to get Phathack MM?
« Last post by jaye on October 29, 2017, 05:03:33 am »

After more searching, I found a thread giving the location at,5366.0.html

Now I'll see if I can get this to work!  I don't have a USB cradle.  Does anyone know if serial cradle works with an adapter to USB?


I have been trying to find a working copy of Phathack MM that would work on Windows 10.  I did find a site but the download doesn't work. I would really like to to update my tunes. :-)  Attempts to get MM working have failed.  Thanks for any help.
