Can someone please help me figure this out. Everything was going fine, I turned the MPC5000 off.. turned it back on... now it won't boot. Says "Initializing Modes" and is stuck. I tried reloading the FW, no dice. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening? How it can be fixed? I am desperate, I have 3 gigs this week... this will destroy me. Thanks in advance.

This will reset the autoload feature to the factory ROM autoload.
And you shouldnt lose anything on the HD

I don't have a 5k... so no idea, but seems like it is worth giving a try.
