OK so without much research I was in Best Buy yesterday and I had a $100 gift card and I saw this DVD/Divx player with USB, on an impulse I got it It's the Philips DVP5982.
WOW I just checked another thread that came to mind and this player was recommended by Busyman™ in this thread ( just wanted to give credit where it's due ) I honestly didn't remember that it was recommended, it was just an impulse buy, but Thanks Busyman!
It's on sale right now for $59.49 USD and I also got the PNY 2 gig flash drive for $20 WHAT A GOOD DEAL!!! This player is fantastic it looks great the USB feature is just amazing! With the 2 gig I fit 2 Divx movies on it just to check it out and I transfered it to the stick in under 2 min and it was ready to play immediately. I am so impressed with the ease of the UBS features I had to write and tell you guys.
I am going to try the External USB HDD in a while but I have no time ATM Someone said that the drive needs to formatted to FAT 32 and currently my WD 500 gig My Book is NTFS.I do have an old 40 gig HD with an external enclosure I could hook up quickly but I have 2 questions. First Why would I have to format to FAT 32? Secondly I can't seem to figure out how to format to Fat32 I have XP and it doesn't give me the option other than NTFS to format to. Do I need a program to do this or what? Sure I could Google it but FST is always better than Google! Thanks guys and I HIGHLY recommend this player to anyone who is in the market for one!
