Question about Philips Magnavox MWR10D6 DVD Recorder

1 Answer

Won't read disk, but does allow setup, ...

After checking and triple-checking cables, ... this unit is set-up (using an RFU adapter that also goes to a SONY PS2 unit).

And... it permits us to go through the set-up options... but when a disk is inserted... it takes a while to "load" and then it (so far, at least) says that the disk format is not readable (yet the SONY PS2 unit has read the same disk).

Looking at other solutions... it sounds like this is a hardware problem that requires a return/exchange?

Help is much appreciated.

I get no sound out of my sub woofer. I've triple checked the setup for speakers. I've had this unit for years so I'm familiar with the setup. I've taken the speaker to another stereo and it works fine....


check the cable for you sub woofer. If problem exists. Try another cable to verify. What kind of subwoofers are you using? Are you going through the LFE port or are you running speaker wires through the speaker inputs on the sub?

We bought some time ago an WD External Harddisk and now the Adapter doesn`t work anymore! What can I do?


Try connecting it to a different computer.

Any external storage device has three major parts:
* USB cable
* disk-drive
* USB-to-disk-drive adapter

Try a different USB cable.

Disconnect the disk-drive from that adapter, and connect the disk-drive as a "slave" disk-drive in a desktop computer, and see if you can read the files, which implies that the adapter is the part that has failed.

If you cannot read from the disk-drive, check its WARRANTY status. W.D. will replace it, if the warranty is still valid.

Otherwise, W.D. has a "Customer Loyalty" program: find the serial-number of your unit, access their web-site, and purchase another W.D. external storage unit, at a significant discount, by citing the serial-number.

Or, if the adapter is OK, then replace the disk-drive by a new one, and close-up the casing, to create a "revived" external storage device for your use.

I've got an old dell laptop from which I want to accesss the photos and documents but the power won't stay on..the green power light stays on for only a few seconds then goes off! please help?


Get hold of a desktop computer that is working. Open the Hard Disk Drive cover of your laptop. Pull out the Hard disk. Get a cable (an example is Nexstar universal storage adapter) which can be used to connect your laptop Hard disk to the desktop via USB port. A desk top allows multiple drives. This way you can get the laptop HDD as a seperate drive in your My computer, (like you see a pendrive or a CD drive. You can try reading this drive and copy content to the desktop. Pretty easy to transfer data and a useful device to have. You can find this device at http://www.amazon.com/Vantec-NexStar-Universal-Storage-Adapter/dp/B002PXFZ3C

first a couple of things.
if your router has wireless support your laptop (if new) should have a wireless adapter built in, so basically your destop computer can be wirely plugged into the router and your laptop shoud "connect wirelessly" to your adapter
so this is how your set up should look like

desktop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ----- wire----- desktop

laptop
--cable-- = - cablemodem - = linksys router = ))wireless))) laptop

you need read up a bit, here are some links that will have info you need

manual for wireless configuration (select the proper revision for your router and check user manual)

configure wireless network for vista


read up and if you have any questions post back.

hope that helps.
