ScreenPlay Director Partitions There are five partitions on the ScreenPlay Director's hard disk. Three partitions are grayed out and will list as "Healthy-Unknown" in Windows Device Manager. These partitions contain the ScreenPlay TV interface and system settings and are not available to store media files. The two active partitions both appear as "Untitled". The larger partition is formatted with an NTFS file system. Use this partition to store your media files when you connect to the ScreenPlay Director from a networked computer or transfer files via direct USB connection. The smaller partition is formatted FAT32 and is used only when updating the ScreenPlay Director firmware. Do not place your media files on this partition! If you accidentally store media files on the FAT32 partition, you can use a computer to move them to the larger NTFS-formatted partition. You will not be able to see media files on the FAT32-formatted partition when using the ScreenPlay TV interface. Formatting the data partition will erase all existing data! If you have files on the ScreenPlay Director you want to save, move them to another drive or volume before reformatting.
*******************************************CAUTION!********************************************************* Do not change (format or delete) the partitioning on the ScreenPlay Director hard disk as this will remove the firmware that enables the ScreenPlay Director to communicate with your TV set. Only media files stored on the active data partition (the largest partition) can be viewed or played on a TV. The ONLY partition that can be formatted is the data partition (the largest partition).
Conclusion: If you have deleted or formatted any of the first 4 partitions on the unit that is not the data partition. You now own a BRICKED ScreenPlay which HAS to be replaced. No if ands or buts about it.

Hi Warren,
Kindly tell him to push the D.SUB button underneath the yellow button, that is if he is on DVD mode. If that one won't work, you may ask him to push the third button from the left hand side of his remote control.

Turning off subtitles will not work for some programs as other broadcasting networks placed restrictions that you cannot turn on/off subtitles using your remote control.

hope this one helps.

Sorry for the inconveniences, you will not be able to repair the deleted partition because it is already deleted, all you have to do is to create a new partition and reformat the partition.

I cannot format my trancend pendrive and it has contents but its not showing ? watto do?


Either your file system is corrupted or your pen drive could be damaged.

Assuming it's not a hardware issue, you can try the following

  • Download EASEUS Partition Master 7.0.1 Home Edition (it's free) from the following link

  • After installing it, connect your pen drive and open EASEUS Partition Master 7.0.1 Home Edition
  • If your pen drive is not damaged, it should show up in this list.
  • Right click on the pen drive and choose format.
  • If format is not available, choose delete
  • If you choose delete, then right click and choose create partition.
  • Then choose the apply button on the top left
Warning : Use extreme caution when using partition manager, make sure you don't select any of your hard drives by mistake or you could lose all your data.

Let me know if you need any clarifications

Sir, i had done hard disk partition of my laptop and by mistake my c-drive remains only 28 gb. due to very low capacity of my c-drive the laptop started hanging. i tried many times to delete all partition...

28 G is enough space to have for C drive ...It can be made larger but only when you reinstall completely from a bootable cd ...cause you can not delete a partition that contain the operation system ...If you want to repartition them you need to get it from scratch and when you get to the point after loading all primary files and reads the previous operation system...than choose not repair..and when it shows all partitions ..delete them all one by one ...(not choose install until you make them again and re-assign the space ) ..
But ..for C drive it is enough 28 G what you need to do is move stuff by cut and paste to another partition from the C drive ...specially from the desktop and from My documents ..and in the future..make the download directors in another partition ..this way you avoid to fill up the C drive ..
another thing to do is to go to my computer folder , right click on C drive ...and properties...and in there choose disk clean-up ) ...this will erase all files like temporary and unused ...ones...and make some space also ..

Error Message BIOHD-4

I had this with a 3 week old HP (and a BIOHD-8 as well)

A temp fix at least, is to use knoppix, go to the partition program, and delete the main partition, and then add a new one  formatted to NTFS. You can then use the recovery discs.

You should also be able to access the drive via knoppix to recover data before you delete the partition, either to flash storage or across a network. I managed to recover about 55gb of data that way (I do a lot of video work)
