If you are encoding the videos yourself, try setting the bitrate lower.
An older player may not be able to handle and decode a higher bitrate video. You've got multiple options without burning to DVD:
1) Use your PC to recode the video to a lower bitrate that your DivX device likes. It takes a long time and you will lose some quality.
2) Get a newer player.
3) Connect your pc to your tv.
Thanks for the time you took to help me out.
I tried all that except the getting a new divx player. has to have something to do with the format and size though - if i covert them to NTSC hi Q dvd and increase the bit rate to 8000. they play just fine. but will not play right on the usb input. The usb input - at least on the sticks i have - will only play things that are less than 1 gig all the way through. it will play the ones that are bigger than that but only to that 1 gig mark..
this did not use to be the case. it will still play any format I put in , but it stops on larger files.
799 meg plays perfectly.
