Are the files "hidden"? If the PC does not see the files, what device did you use to load the files into the Iomega MX? Try going back to the file-source and right-click on them, select 'properties'-> undo 'hidden' check-box. This may fix it.

My iomega screenplay plus hd media player has stopped working after one year - the loading menu boots up and then disappears off screen when connected to tv - can you suggest a cause/solution?thanks!


Have you tried connecting it to a different TV? Using different cables?

Check if there is a firmware update for it.

I had a similar issue with my WD TV Plus and a firmware update fixed it.

I got a windows 7 - 64 bit. the screenplay director hd media player from iomega doesn't show up when connected via usb. what should i do?


Quoted from Iomegas website
When connecting a ScreenPlay to the USB port on a computer, you should always power down the ScreenPlay first, then connect the USB cable and turn power back on. This changes the ScreenPlay from video mode that allows it to communicate with a TV set to USB mode that allows it to communicate with a computer.

When you want to reconnect the ScreenPlay to a TV, use the safe removal process for your operating system to unmount the drive, then power down the ScreenPlay and disconnect the USB cable. Turn power back on after the ScreenPlay is correctly connected to the audio/video connection on the TV set.

To ensure that the ScreenPlay is correctly recognized, do not connect a ScreenPlay to USB and a TV set at the same time.

Do the above and your screenplay director will be recognised by your pc

My iomega screenplay 500gb is not coming up on 2 of my laptops when i connect it via usb it comes up local disk and when you click it my computer just crashes and it takes a while to load up, it doesnt...


Try plugging in the player & powering it up fully (wait 2 minutes). Once fully booted, connect it to your laptop...this should work - if not, you likely have a problem w/ the hard drive internal to the player.

ScreenPlay Director Partitions
There are five partitions on the ScreenPlay Director's hard disk. Three partitions are grayed out and will list as "Healthy-Unknown" in Windows Device Manager. These partitions contain the ScreenPlay TV interface and system settings and are not available to store media files.
The two active partitions both appear as "Untitled". The larger partition is formatted with an NTFS file system. Use this partition to store your media files when you connect to the ScreenPlay Director from a networked computer or transfer files via direct USB connection.
The smaller partition is formatted FAT32 and is used only when updating the ScreenPlay Director firmware. Do not place your media files on this partition! If you accidentally store media files on the FAT32 partition, you can use a computer to move them to the larger NTFS-formatted partition. You will not be able to see media files on the FAT32-formatted partition when using the ScreenPlay TV interface.
Formatting the data partition will erase all existing data! If you have files on the ScreenPlay Director you want to save, move them to another drive or volume before reformatting.

************************************CAUTION!************************************************ Do not change (format or delete) the partitioning on the ScreenPlay Director hard disk as this will remove the firmware that enables the ScreenPlay Director to communicate with your TV set. Only media files stored on the active data partition (the largest partition) can be viewed or played on a TV. The ONLY partition that can be formatted is the data partition (the largest partition).
Conclusion: If you have deleted or formatted any of the first 4 partitions on the unit that is not the data partition. You now own a BRICKED ScreenPlay which HAS to be replaced. No if ands or buts about it. YOUR DEVICE IS DEAD.

Iomega Screenplay Pro HD Multimedia Drive works on PC but not on


If the blue light continues to flash after the screen goes black, then you need to reinstall the firmware. Look at http://screenplayprohd.wikia.com for information about getting the firmware and installing it.

If the blue light goes solid after the screen goes black then you probably just need to switch the NTSC/PAL selection. Press that button on the front panel several times, waiting a few seconds inbetween in press. If it continues to be invisible, plug the drive into another TV using the composite cables instead of HDMI to confirm if the menu comes up at all. If it does, reinstall the firmware.

Iomega Screenplay Pro HD - No Menu


I had the same problem with the Screenplay Pro HD. My Iomega was working fine and one day after exchanging files with a friend I got the logo, then the loading message and then it went into a black screen while the blue light kept blinking.
Obviously the connection to the TV was fine because the logo appeared.
I solved the problem by downloading and reinstalling the firmware.
I downloaded the firmware from the iomega web site.
Notice that during the installation process you get the message that it will delete your data and then shortly after you have the option to delete or keep it. Hang in there. This part is a little nerv wrecking.

Hope this helps.
