Thanks it turned out I had unzip the file too far. Down to the 3 files and it wouldn't let me burn it as an image.

You would unlock your drive if you wanted to connect it to a PC in order to hack the drive or install an upgrade not supported by Pioneer.

Ok, I'm about to do this. Am I able to update/change maps software with something else, because the only issue with the HD3 is that the maps are out of date and Pioneer don't have any more updates for this unit.

You are not missing any steps.  Contact the ebay seller and request a replacement as it's defective or they installed software incorrectly on the drive.

So I think I have the japanese version (HRZ08) and while the test disk works...(it boots up) the menu system is all in Japanese (much like the entire unit not surprisingly), and the TRK buttons don't work to navigate the menu. Any ideas?

Nevermind - figured it out. Can't use the headunit buttons - have to use the remote.

Pioneer AVIC HRZ 09

 

So far:

 

System Test Disc boots. 

Burned using Magic ISO Maker: Mode 1 & Finalize CD option selected.

 

As Shifter said, its all in Japanese and you must use the REMOTE! however the remote is in japanese and this instruction is difficult to follow:

 

6. Scroll down to option 9 "HDD FLG Set" with the 'PLIST DOWN' button - p. 214 manual and press 'MENU'

button to enter setting mode

7. At the "press POS to change flag" prompt, press the "MAP" button

8. Now the AVIC unlocks the hard disk

What would be nice though, is figuring out some way to convert it to English. I'm thinking maybe reflash the HDD with the English version (Z-series)?

THink you'd be better off with the european HD series in stead of the Z series, probably closer to the japanese version. That's not saying either one will work mind....

question,. if you do not pre unlock a new/used non oem hard drive and insert it into the avic, will the unlock method still work? or is the drive toast after? 

 

meaning you would need to unlock the spare drive before? then clone , then add maps? i have a few older locked drives now, i tried disk ti disk clone... etc

 

thanks

This is an old thread, but my Pioneer AVIC HD3BT is also old and has starting to acting weird and I suspect the harddrive needs to be replaced or fixed.

Can this unlocking method be used for swapping the harddrive with a new one? (Of course after I cloned the old disk into the new disk..)

Can I even put in larger disk? 

What about using a SSD disk?

 

The fault in my unit is that sometimes when I start playing a song, after a few second it would skip the song to the next. It can continue doing this for a few song from that album. If I play songs from an album I have put on later it works fine. I also had one time when the unit stopped playing anything from the harddrive. But after a few hours just listening to the radio, then the harddrive started to work again and it was back to normal. But from time to time it can still skip songs. Then I just have to stop using it for a period and it fixes itself somehow...

Is it also possible to use this method for a pioneer harddisk attacht to a laptop with dvd player? Mine DVD player from the AVIC-HD3 is broken.

 

Thanks
