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.

    Oh sorry, I didn't notice that you're asking about a DVD player. I havent got much infos and documentations about your player on the web, But akin to the universal meaning of ROOT DIRECTORY, it also applies to DVD players, as most players, may it be DVD players, mp3 players and some cameras have built in system/ boot files which are FIRMWARE UPGRADEABLE. Ask your local dealer or tech if your player's firmware is upgradeable or could be reset. If the answer is "yes", then be extra careful with this EPROM based players. Once all datas are erased, you're player is useless unless you connect to a computer and download the necessary firmware for it.

LCD not working


my samsung mini dvd had problem with recording, the screen would go black (though menu displays come up fine).
could do play back but not record.
i put it in the sun for awhile or in a warm spot and it will record and show display. 
it is not a complete fix but worth trying (on top of the heater works good too). of course the fix doesn't seem to work when i REALLY need to record something.
also had stripes coming across screen recently on playback, gave it a good tap and the stripes went.

No playback


Hi there and thanks for coming to FixYa.

The M means that your camcorder is in manual mode. To put the camcorder in A or Automatic mode, hold the lock button down on the power switch and turn the switch to A.

DSC means Digital Still Camera - It's a mode of the camcorder.

Hit the SEL button to move through the DSC playback items.

Hope that helps you. If you have more questions, leave me a comment, and feel free to rate my solution.

Olympus DS30 voice recorder play speed issue


Hi, the solution to the problem seems to be the following. When u press play, once, you get 1x play. If whilst playing you press play a second time the DS-30 goes into slow play mode, and if you press a second time it goes into fast mode. For those of us who accidentally went into either fast or slow mode, just press the play button again, during playback, until "play" appears on the LCD screen. Apparently it is as simple as that.

Blue screen on playback on Sony DCR-HC40


You can see an image in a camcorder viewfinder any time the camera's actually on in record mode, whether or not the camcorder is actually recording. So that's no guarantee.

Assuming the obvious (you have the right kind of tapes, they're not in write-protect mode, you rewind before playing, etc). I recommend that you borrow a tape of the same kind from someone else and check it on playback in your camcorder. This should lead you know understand if you have a playback problem or a recording problem.

Cannot playback hi8 ccd trv107e pal


Dirty video head! Playback newly opened blank tape for five minutes, after that eject, reinsert, playback then eject again five times, these will serve as your video head cleaner, never use "video head cleaning cassette tape" for it will only damage your camera. Most camera has built in video head cleaner installed inside and activates only when you insert, initial play/rec, and ejects a tape. If the problem is still there you need pro fix then.[:0)
