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. YOUR DEVICE IS DEAD.

    If you accidentally formatted the whole Screenplay Pro, don't worry. Install the firmware once again from IOMEGA website and that will bring back your multimedia drive back to life.

  • robertdun661 Jul 25, 2011

    Do a quick format of the drive and reinstall the firmware and this will set everything up again. Check out this link for Omega support.http://www.iomegasupportforums.com/phpbb...

I have accidentally formatted my partition drive f


Deleting or formatting won't make the data in computer hard drive erased permanently.

Those deleted data is still stored on the computer hard drive , it's just invisible or inaccessible. Only the FAT or NFTS table is erased (the information about where those data were saved), but the real data are still intact there in sectors of the hard drive.


So as long as those data are not overwritten by new data, it's highly possible to recover them. And the MOST Effective way is to rely on some format recovery programs.


Try asoftech data recovery program, which can recover data after deeply scanning your computer hard drive to look for lost data you accidentally deleted or formatted. download the software from link below

How can i recover my files when i accidentally formatted my drive d twice


The only chance you have is to find a free "undeleete" program and try to recover as much as possible.
Afterformatting a harddrive and later installationof Windows you cant expect to recover that much as - If the position where the file wasstored is owerwritten by windows files - recovery is not possible. If I were you - forget it - bu as mentioned there is a chance to recover some of the files. Search via google for Undeleete program (free) - or by a proper program.

I need to know how to partition newly purchased item into 3 or 4 partitions. A step by step guide is needed. Thank you.


IN windows OS
go to control panel from the start menu
Go to System and Maintenance
then click on Administrative Tools
then double-clicking Computer Management on navigation pane you will see storage under that choose disk management



ss2sameer.gif

In the right hand pane you will see each physical disk within your computer on a separate row, and each disk is displayed with it broken up into its partitions. (In the example shown there is one physical disk which is partitioned into two)
After confirming which partition you wish to remove, right click on it, and select 'Delete Partition' or 'Delete Logical Drive'. Click 'Yes' when prompted. make sure u choose the right one. these actions are not undoable. u may loose your all data.

now Right-click on the unallocated region created on your hard disk, and then clickNew Simple Volume.
you will be creating primary partition. you will get New Simple Volume Wizard, click Next.
write the size of the volume you want to create in megabytes (MB) or accept the maximum default size, and then click Next. in your case write 330,000 for 330gb partition.
Choose the default drive letter or a different drive letter to identify the partition, and then click next.
you will get format partition dialogue box.
if you don't want to format the volume right now, click Do not format this volume, and then click Next.
To format the volume with the default settings, click Next.
ideally choose NTFS and quick partition
choose finish.
create more partitions by right clicking on empty space and choosing new partition and repeating above steps.

Reset acer aspire one


it depends what you mean by resetting ..if you only want to reset the bios settings just go to bios by pressing f2 on start and after that choose from the menu the optimal factory defaults and save changes by pressing the F10..
this will reset the bios to default s..
If you are talking about cleaning the Hdd you need an installation CD bootable and you need to install it clean and format the hdd ...or at least the C partition cause the others you can format from windows by right click on the partition and choose format ..if it do not contain any sensitive windows or back-up data it wil;l format like a charm ...but for the C partition where the windows is present ..you have to reinstall and format during it ..
the best way is to save all data in the other partition..(D:drive) and install the windows..in C with formating it during ...than move the stuf you really need and saved in D ..into teh C partition and format the D as well..
good luck ..and do not forget to rate ..
