On a magnavox mdv 460 dvd player what does it mean when the word root is on dvd srceen ?


'Root' is normally the name of the baseline user name for computer operating systems. It sounds like the system has somehow gotten into a programming mode. Here is a link to the manual:
file:///home/chronos/u-11d96e023a6a8125518c9809892ca210f39fcc9f/Downloads/mdv460.pdf

Please refer to page 38 about upgrading the software. You may want to try the remote code to see if the system will return to normal operations.

Dvd wont play disc root comes up?


When you load the DVD, instead of the content loading, the word "Root" comes up? This means the content is either corrupted, the disc is dirty, or damaged. In other words, the laser is not able to reach and pick up the magnetic information on the disc. Does this happen with another DVD player? Try doing that first. In the meantime, clean the disc. If the disc can't be read by another DVD player, then the disc is at fault. If another DVD player can load the disc with no problem, the original DVD player you used, may have a dirty lens (what the laser shoots out of), or the laser is not moving at all. If this is the case, the DVD player is broken.

My philips dvd player has stopped playing CD's and DVD's and on the display screen it shows "root". i have had this DVD player for 16months. Can you help me?? cheers


Usually "ROOT" is an indication that the player has read the DVD.

ROOT means that the DVD is in the main menu screen.

Sounds like the DVD player is ok, but you may have a loose connection somewhere.

Check all of your AV connections between the TV and DVD.

Also make sure that the TV is set to the same AV channel as the connection you are using.
E.G. if you have connected the DVD to the AV 1 socket of the TV, make sure that the TV is set to channel AV 1.

ROOT


Root Folder/ Directory refers to the main Folder which contains all the important informations and commands your player has. It is similar to your Root Directory in your PC -- Drive C:/ where all the system files are located.

Root Directory includes sub folders such as your player's Master Boot Record (MBR - very crucial, this is the boot operating system), music file directory, audio record directory, data files directory such as organizer and phone directory (if your player has one).

Root Directory is very important for your player's performance as it contains all the valuable informations and commands so your player would run under normal condition. Once everything was erased in that root folder, you'll render your player useless. So be extra careful when you upgrade your player's firmware as this erases all files including those the OPERATING SYSTEM in the root folder.

It is safe however to format within your player as this erases only your data files and music. Just to be sure, avoid formating your player in your PC's MY COMPUTER/ WINDOWS EXPLORER unless it is specified in the users manual.

Luckily, MBR are usually erased when you entered your player's SERVICE MODE and you choose to erase the Firmware using some special keys. So, as long as you're using your player as mentioned in your users manual, you're okay with it. If you doesn't know all about mp3 player repairs or upgrades, leave the SERVICE MODE or PLAYER RECOVERY to the technicians.

Root


"Root" means the player is reading the Root Menu of the Disc, which contains the title information, chapter information, etc - it is nothing to worry about.
