Re: Great DVD player

You can also use external hard drives.

Re: Great DVD player

Yep that is what I use now. I have a 500GB laptop external that requires no power but runs only on USB (less cords). If you use a external just make sure its formatted to FAT32.

See this thread if you need to reformat it (or to find out what format it is in): How to reformat a External Hard Drive or Flash Drive

Re: Great DVD player

Just a FYI if your playing a movie on the Flash DriveFlash Drive that is a larger file it takes a while to load. I have one movie that is 2.5GB and it took almost 5 min to load. While it is loading DO NOT keep hitting the "OK" button on the remote or you will only end up getting a "no disk" error message on the screen. Hit the "OK' once then leave it alone.

This was my mom's problem today. I gave her a large movie and she thought it would pop up right away like the movies that are 700mb and it didn't happen. Happy to report she is now watching her movie. Big Grin

Re: Great DVD player

If ya don't wanna buy a new dvd player, and you have an XBOX 360XBOX 360, you can load movies via its usb port. I've only tried one, but it seemed to work just fine. I'm assuming the dvd player will play more formats, but using an XBOXXBOX is a cheap alternative too, specially if you already have one

Re: Great DVD player

For anyone (like me) that wants all folders/files sorted on the USB drive / Flash DriveFlash Drive sorted alphabetically, here's a great, free little program that will sort them that way. You just open the USB drive in it, click sort and then save. All done.

For anyone wondering why you would need it to do this, without getting all technical about the FAT32 file system, when you add new things to the drive, it displays them in the order in which they were added, on the DVD player, rather than alphabetically. Sometimes that can kinda make finding things on it more time consuming that is necessary.

Note, be sure to run the program from another drive. If you store the program on the same drive and then try to sort it, you'll just get a "drive is locked so don't have exclusive access" type of error message when trying to sort.

Re: Great DVD Player!

I know this post is rather old but, I'd have my PS3 any day. Best CD/DVD/Blu Ray/USB player/Gaming console, the only disadvantage being only able to watch region 0 videos for Blu Ray. I'd say the best videos I've ever watched are on my PS3, its excellent for streaming media via a media server, had no problems watching videos and listen to songs. Sony wins in this category as a multipurpose entertainment device Big Grin .

Re: Great DVD Player!

I've heard alot of good about the PS3 as a dvd player too. Have you looked into any mods to see if it can make it region free yet?

The real difference between the two is price. If you're looking for a great, cheap, dvd player that plays usb, this one is great. i still love that thing. Smile
