SOURCE: Remote code for the iomega screenplay

I bought the JELLY Universal PC Programmable remote in Portugal for 10 euros. The code for Iomega Screenplay is 2297. See it here: http://www.wiltsgrove.co.uk/sub-category.php?ID=1709&CID=0026&PID=IR2005

SOURCE: My Iomega Screenplay 500 hd was recently sent back

Hi,
When you buy an external drive/enclosure combination from a drive
manufacturer (Seagate, WD etc) the drive usually comes formatted as fat32.
Because you have formatted the drive in NTFS the TV will not recognize the drive it has to be formatted in fat32 for the TV to recognize it.
Because of the limitations of Windows XP, you can not format any fat32 partition larger than 32 gig. (i think this also goes for Vista too but its worth a try)

The work around is to create/format the partition by booting up into
Partition Magic from their 2 floppy set that the program allows you to
create. Then you are not bound by this restriction.
You can also get partition magic on the hirens boot CD, and partition the drive that way.

You can also partition/format the drive by booting up from a Windows 98se or a Windows ME setup floppy and use the combination of the fdisk and format commands to create one large partition and format same.

Of the two, Partition Magic is easier as you have a visual interface to see what you are doing. But both work the same.

With older M/B's you may have to remove the drive from the external
enclosure to perform the actions as the drive may not be seen while in the USB/Firewire enclosure (bios limitation). The drive will have to be
connected to an IDE/SATA cable connected to one of the IDE/SATA ports on the M/B.


Regards.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: 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.

I would lke todown load a users manual for mynew screenplay mx2 hd media player s/nBBA1370FC1 MODEL 31971400 SPDHDMX2


The first link is the HTML version of it. This means it's not so much of a download as it will just show you the manual in your web browser. The second link is for the download, however, it is buried in a long list and you'll have to scroll down until you see it (it's a little below halfway down the page):
1.) http://www.iomega.com/support/manuals/mediaplayer/spmx2/en/main.html
2.) https://iomega-na-en.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/14432#scrnply
I hope this helps you!

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.
