Question about Iomega ScreenPlay

Open Question

Hello, I have a Iomega Screenplay 1TB drive. After one year of using it sparingly (mostly backup purposes), today it's no longer being recognized by my computer. Actually, what happens is that I plug it in and the computer seems to recognize it, but Windows Explorer seems to crash if I try to acces the filesystem, and the whole computer freezes until I unplug the USB. Sometimes I get to see the root directory before the freeze happens. I have tried on 3 computers with the same results. However, the drive still works well when I use it to play media files on my TV, and I can explore the filesystem without trouble using the TV interface.

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.
Rainer
