Question about Toshiba SD-4700 DVD Player

Toshiba SD480E HDMI DVD Player will not play flash drive content

Toshiba SD480E HDMI DVD Player has a USB port to allow you to play stuff on a flash drive. This worked to begin with, most of the time, but now I get the message "not allowed at this time" when I insert and try to load.

    No reset button I'm afraid. It's actually the SD580 [got it wrong] and is very simple - just an HDMI socket and a Scart socket on the back, and a Play, a Stop, and an HDMI Select button on the front, plus the USB port...I have tried unplugging the HD cable and just using the Scart, to see if that helped but no dice.
    I have just got a new TV, but the first time I tried playing something off a flash player with this TV it worked fine, so I don't think it's that.

Toshiba dvd recorder will not record from webcam it is hooked into the ubs line


Do you mean USB? According to the manual for your DVD recorder, the USB port is only for the playback of MP3 (audio) or JPEG (photo) files. So you can't record video from your camera through the USB port.

Wharfedale DVD1100 PLayer does not detect USB Hard drive


It's unlikely that you're doing something wrong. Did you buy this DVD player as one that is supposed to support connecting hard drives? If not, then the player probably doesn't support connecting a hard drive.

How to hook up DVD player to 19' led HDTV


The modern way is to buy a HDMI Cable
Plug it in to the HDMI Port on back of DVD Player
Plug the other end into spare HDMI Port on LED TV.
Put in a DVD & hit Play
Use remote control to select HDMI port on LED TV
If it does not have a HDMI port then you need a converter box which picks up the Red & White (sound) & Yellow (viideo) and converts to HDMI standard.

Toshiba store and gowont playon dvd player


Does the computer recognize the 500GB Drive when you plug it into your usb port?

Click Start/My Computer and see if your 500GB drive is listed as a device, if not that's a problem.

Try using a different usb port. Also try using the 500GB drive on another computer.

If it's gone belly up, it's not going to work.

I transfered a VHS tape to DVD on my Toshiba DVR620KU machine. I used a Memorex DVD+R. I can play the DVD on the Toshiba unit, but it will not plan on any other DVD. Can you tell me how to correct this...


You must finalize the DVD on the Toshiba before it can be read on any other DVD player. Before finalization, it is possible to still add content to the DVD using the Toshiba but afterwards it will not be possible.

Assuming I've got the right device, you can see the formats supported are listed at the top. I've had a look at the Toshiba website, and there are no downloads for your drive, however, I think you can get the user manual from here:-

http://uk.computers.toshiba-europe.com/innovation/download_manuals.jsp?service=UK

Its worth checking out, because there may be a firmware update option in the menu which may help.

From what I've seen, it has an operating system, if so, check the menu options here, see if there's a System Update option. Again, that could update your codec lists.

Finally, this is just a guess, but if there is an operating system, its probably Linux, there should be a software download option, see if you can download and install a programme called VLC media player. Its about one of the best.

Will not play movie - continually displays "Copyrighted Movie HDMI HDCP frail with TV "


There are several reasons for this but exactly knowing which is one isn't possible without first knowing what products you are using such as your connector, player and television.
HDCP is the acronym for high definition content protection. It is a digital signature embedded into the disc software designed to prevent copying of the disc. On certain occasions due to the hardware such as the HDMI port on the television, or the connection type, the signal will not be allowed to pass through. The HDMI port on the television may not be HDCP compliant for example. In this case if possible you can try a different HDMI input on the TV if available or use the component video input instead.

HDMI sound?


I had the same problem with my PS3. I have a HD cable box with HDMI out, a Sony DVD player with HDMI out. The Sony receiver STR-DG800 only has the HDMI inputs (sat/tv and dvd) and the HDMI is only a pass through port and will not decode audio.
I purchase a HDMI 4 port switch from Newegg (HS-41A0 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16812168003&Tpk=HS-41A0) to hook up the DVD and PS3 to the DVD HDMI and switch between the DVD player and the PS3. It took me several days to figure out how to make this work with the settings on the reciver.

1 the DVD player must use the coaxial in jack for sound on the receiver.
2. the PS3 must use the optical connection on video1
3. the sound settings in the PS3 must be set to PCM
4. set the sound setting on the receiver to the following

a. on the remote press AMP button then the MENU button, next press the down arrow to you see 5- AUDIO SET - then press enter.
b.set sound decode priorty to PCM
c. next scroll down to you see digital assign - press enter
assign VID1 OPTICAL to DVD ( this allows the pcm output from the PS3 to play through the receiver), next assign DVD to COAXIAL setting DVD to DVD (this allows the digital sound to play from your DVD player).

So when you use your remote and select DVD, you can use your PS3 or DVD through the 1 DVD HDMI port.
