Hi, new op-1 user.
I got my op used from Reverb and after learning it for a few days I noticed that I could no longer connect to my computer via disk mode. this became frustrating so I did what I thought might help, formatting the drive. Big mistake. now my op is stuck with an error screen on boot up- which looks something like this:
\src\db2\db2.cpp:273 cant open /yaffs2/content/tape.db
rev. 00225; 2017/07/17(then it gets covered up by the TE logo)
I assume this error is there because the op has no firmware to boot off of. so i’m back to my original problem, i cant connect my op to my computer!
also note: It still charges fine, when i plug it in the 5 lights blink going upwards and after a while it stops blinking and i assume that means it’s fully charged. I have tried 2 different USB cables in every USB port on my computer.
I think some part of it may have been damaged when i took my op to a friends house to try it out. It died while i was over there and he plugged it into his USB wall outlet. as for software, I tried recording an audio sample from the radio and after a minute or two of playing with that my op crashed and i got a similar error to the one described above. I reset it and it worked after that.
