I recently bought a used CLP 270 and have had no problems with it until today. Whenever I plug in my portable HD to transfer over songs, I do everything as normal (which has worked >100 times), it says 'executing' and then gets stuck. I've waited up to 30min and nothing. Been happening all evening and I'm out of ideas. So far I've cleared hard drive and done a factory reset of the clp.

Anyone have any experience like this? Ideas? Thanks!

Hi IrieRiver,

This is an unknown type of failure to me.

Apart from the actions that you already took I don't have a lot of ideas except hearing Yamaha support directly.

One, totally hypothetical, possibility is that some important location in the flash memory in your CLP got corrupted (this sometimes happens) and the CLP CPU gets stuck when trying to read/write data to that location while doing the data transfer.

One question: did you clear the user songs memory when doing the factory reset?
If this is not the case, and if you can afford clearing them, this _might_ help.

Good luck!
