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

SOURCE: Iomega Screenplay Pro HD Multimedia Drive works on PC but not on

If the blue light continues to flash after the screen goes black, then you need to reinstall the firmware. Look at http://screenplayprohd.wikia.com for information about getting the firmware and installing it.

If the blue light goes solid after the screen goes black then you probably just need to switch the NTSC/PAL selection. Press that button on the front panel several times, waiting a few seconds inbetween in press. If it continues to be invisible, plug the drive into another TV using the composite cables instead of HDMI to confirm if the menu comes up at all. If it does, reinstall the firmware.

Files not show/recognized when connected to the tv and movies not playing


Your movies have to be converted into .avi format. There are many websites to download video format conversions depending upon your PC's operating system. Once you have found the right software, you will have to attach your Ext HD, then open each movie & click 'Convert to AVI'. Once completed, you can delete the original. If you need more help come back to me.

How to watch commercial DVDs on your wide screen TV via WD TV Mini Media Player


WD TV Mini Media Player provides an easy and affordable way to play back your digital media on your wide screen TV.  It serves as a conduit between your TV set and USB drive storage, no matter it is a camcorder, a humble flash drive, or an external HDD. Simply connect WD TV Mini to your TV, plug a USB-connected storage into the player and you are ready to enjoy all your digital media in DVD quality playback.
WD TV Mini Media Player supported media formats:
Videos:
AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG4), MPG/MPEG, VOB/ISO, MP4/MOV (MPEG4), RM or RMVB 8/9/10
Audios:
MP3, WAV/PCM/LPCM, WMA, AAC, FLAC, MKA, OGG, APE
From the above list we can see that VOB is a playable format for WD TV Mini Media Player, does it mean that WD TV Mini can play all kinds of DVDs – whether home made DVDs or commercial DVDs? The answer is WD TV can not decrypt copy protected commercial DVDs, so you have to rip them. This tutorial aims to show you how to make it possible for you to watch commercial DVDs on your wide screen TV via WD TV Mini Media Player. What you will need is Pavtube DVD Ripper, it not only rips, but it encodes too. Following is the detailed operating steps:

Step 1: Click "DVD Rom", "DVD Folder" or "IFO/ISO" to load DVD files into this program.

Step 2: Select subtitle and audio track
Click on the pull down menu of "Subtitle" and "Audio" respectively to select your needed subtitle and audio language.
Step 3: Select output format for WD TV Mini Media Player
Click on the drop-down list at the end of "Format" to choose an output format for WD TV Mini Media Player. Your selection should be in the range of AVI (Xvid, AVC, MPEG4), MPG/MPEG, VOB/ISO, MP4/MOV (MPEG4), RM or RMVB 8/9/10. Here I select "Xvid AVI" as an example:

Step 4: Click "Settings" button to adjust video and audio parameters
The user manual tells us that when playback .avi (Xvid) video files, WD TV Mini supports up to 720*576 30fps or 720*480 30fps, so we need to follow the manual while ripping a DVD.

Step 5: Click "Convert" button to start DVD ripping
Once finished, you can get the generated files for WD TV Mini via clicking on "Open" button with ease. Afterwards, just copy the output files to My Passport portable hard drive or other USB drive, and then connect WD TV Mini to your TV, plug your USB drive into the player and you are ready to enjoy the movies ripped from your commercial DVDs.

Why is it that I canot get sound on all the vidios that I play back on my TV from my Screen Play I can only get sound on a few ?


Hi Mary,
Please check the format of the video that you are trying to play.
this Iomega ScreenPlay Plus HD Media Player is certified to play popular DivX video, and supports many of today's popular CODECs and file types, including H.264, WMV and MKV, as well as plenty of others. (For a comprehensive list of supported video, audio and photo files. Most probably the video that you are trying to play is .3GP or .FLV.

For this you need to convert the video files to supporting format like DivX®, DivX Plus™ HD (MKV), XviD, AVI(Xvid, AVC, MPEG1/2/4), ISO, VOB, MP4, MOV, MKV,H.264, WMV, RMVB and MPEG.

Thanks,
Satheesh

My Iomega Screen Play Plus wont play any of my High Quality AVI files. I know this is down to the codec. Can I install a 3rd party player or how do I fix this?


It appears that the firmware update (click here) only fixes minor bugs some of which include DivX issues but does not seem to include more codecs. Here are a list of supported codecs (click here). The only other option seems to be the Transcode Server option (click here); but am not sure if this works for your exact model. So for all intents and purposes unless Iomega sends out a firmware update, with an extend codec pack, you would have to try the Transcode Server option or unfortunately convert your files to a supported format (no joy). Hope this was helpful.
