SOURCE: video files on MyBook 1TB hard drive lag

So, if you move the file that won't load onto your laptop it then loads? If so can you plug it into another mac and see if it works on that one (if it works it an issue with your macs firwire ports and an os re-install may be needed or your card has been damaged) or can you try another hardrive with your mac (if this works you need to reformat your mybook)? I've bined a HD this year already, not good.

SOURCE: Access is denied on picture and video clip file.

I had the same problem before. Unfortenatly this has to do with owner permissions set on on your old device and not recognising or accepting this permissions on the new.
If you still have your old device working then change the permissions for all files to "full control" for "everyone" and then copy. this is will solve the issue.

> these files play fine on Windows Media Player

Then, continue to use Windows Media Player.

Or, tell us what alternative program that you use that gives "sound-and-no-picture" or "picture-and-no-sound".
What version of that program?
Windows XP? Vista? 7?
Any more "possibly-relevant" details ?

I have an IOMEGA Screenplay Multimedia Play &= GB. I accidentally formatted it and now i cannot play movies on my TV but only being connect to PC. Can you help me ?


when you buy a drive like the omega it comes with its own folder that contains config files and codecs...doing a complete format you have erased this so any movies played from the drive will not tell the television what codec to use, as your TV cannot use or find the codec on the hard drive it used to have. your tv will play mp4 video, so convert your files on the hard drive using "youtube downloader" (it's free off the internet) use the convert feature and select the convert filetype too ipad video mp4.....and ...select quality as original . convert one or two files and test it on your TV ...guaranteed they will play.....if so....go back and convert the rest...this time select delete original file after conversion, this just helps you not see double ups by deleting the original after conversion. guaranteed 100% works. 732973d7-ed19-4e8d-898b-1e752efd7709.jpg

Using usb stick


First you will have either copy and pate the movie or download it to your usb drive

One of the benefits of putting files on a USB flash drive is that you can make any type of file portable.


This includes not only documents, spreadsheets and photos, but also media like video clips and movies.


If you have movies saved on your flash drive that you want to view, watching the movies directly from the USB drive is a simple process and can be achieved on almost any computer.


Connect your USB drive to the device on which you want to watch your movies.

This includes all USB-compatible computers, as well as some select television-compatible devices (like the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or Sony Media Extender).


Launch the file explorer application on your device.

In Windows, access this utility by accessing the "Computer" application and then double-clicking the USB drive to display the files.


If you are trying to watch the movie files on a compatible television device, look for a "media," "device" or "USB input" application or button to bring up the file explorer.


Select the movie file you want to play.

In Windows, do this by double-clicking on the file.


The appropriate media-handling program should automatically launch and begin playing the movie automatically.


If you are using a television device, select the file from the list of compatible files in the device's internal explorer system.


hope this helps

When you plug the drive into the computer does windows alert you that a new device was detected? If you open my computer you should see and hard drive listed that will only be there when your external drive is connected.

as the mac has a diffreent format to a pc you cannot connect up the drive to a pc because it simply wont recodnise it. the best way is to network the 2 computers together then alow file sharing on the mac and searcc with windows through the network to find the drive. then copy them across the network to your pc. this will then reformat the files to PC files at they hit your PC

Playing movies from external hard drive


Hi rox09
Well you can rip your DVD to any external drive using and third party DVD ripping software ,once you do that you will get a AVI,MPEG and any common fomats your DVD player supports

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps
