That's just what I'm doing everyday, and still, after a while, problems occur, and teh result is not what one can expect.

In your case, first check the hard disk. It's 4 years old, you'd better...

I have seen many SDA I/O errors. That was when I had the habit to take out the HD to make backups. It always meant that I had to revert to the previous backup, because the database zDB could not be...

A green HD with a slow speed will do. Not a fast 7200 rpm thing. Take also one that draws as few watts as possible.

You're quite right. In general... But I'm pretty sure that the USB port also can be used with an USB-DAC, I remember me trying that with my (now absent) DacMagic. But the DacMagic was constraint in...

Hi,

Anyone who knows what the USB-port of an Olive 4 spits out, musically speaking? I don't have an USB DAC but I might buy one. I already sold my DacMagic, which wasn't any better than the...

That's a shame, Nalod. A frozen, broken hard disk is to be expected sooner or later. Just look for some Linux knowledge in your neighbourhood. Ten to one the only real problem is some software...

Hi Bajahab,

I can imagine that my post has sparked some debate, because this matter always does. Nowadays I usually keep my mouth shut, because it is of little use to talk about stuff that one...

In my setup, I always give fixed gear fixed addresses. So they don't rely on a router for their addresses, and you always know what address your Olives have.

Having that said, it is always neat if...

Nice! The one you found must be the right one, but bear in mind that I only have some Olive 4's, no other members of the family.

Checking sda5 every time the unit starts is really a boone. It will...

16 bit and max 96Khz resolution. Yielding to 96dB for the loudest and 48Kh for the highest tone.
But that is just theory. There is much more that influences the sound.

Hi Mike,

There is no such thing as an encryption code in your Olive. It's just its habit of keeping ALL your valuable edits in the unencrypted, not-password protected, plain vanilla SQLite...

I would not count on a backup with freezes. But since a backup is just a bunch of copies of files, the backup in your laptop is much more reliable.

Having said that, I backup both the data and the...

I hope for you, but I hoped that you had a backup of a properly working Olive.
Anyway, good luck!

Thanks for this observation. Quite silly how this actually works. I'll try it. I have had many failed recoveries in the past, and got used to it.

If you can open it (if there is no warranty anymore), it's an obvious check, after all the other obvious things you did.

Good luck.

Obviously it is your internal DAC at fault. Maybe it's just a loose cable. If you're lucky.
