Just got this today :) makes life so much easier, not having to burn dvd's all the time :) no more converting files to dvd format lol ! plays avi's, xvid.

BUT make sure the drive your going to use (usb) is NOT NTFC. as it wont work...!

Im using my 4GB usb flash pen drive, can get 4-5 avi films on it.

Cheers mate:Cheers:

It does play NTSC you just need to -

1) Go to the Preference page in the Setup menu
2) Press 1 3 8 9 3 1 on the keypad of the Remote
3) Options will be available to be selected
4) Choose Zero (0) and press ok

You now have a Multi Region player.

We got one from Asda last week for £50

I got one ages ago from Amazon (still only paid the 'sale' price at curry's!), and it's been brilliant. I use an external 500gb hard drive with a usb connection, and copied all my dvds and downloads to this.

Can anyone tell me if the firmware's improved, as I have a problem with the directory structure in that the dvd player can only interrogate down one level - ie can't have Prison Break\Series1 etc, have to have 3 separate directories eg Prison Break 1, Prison Break2 etc.

Cheers

I have bought one and I have tried several different CDs and DVDs and all played brilliantly. Worth every penny.
