Seems good will have a look, but an extra 70GB for a tenner isn't that bad is it?

Should be able to, if you make sure it's formatted to FAT32, if the DVD player can read USB flash drives, chances are it'll be able to read from this.
Great price, hot from me

Ummm, 320GB for £40 is a better price than 250GB for £30.

EDIT: Actually its only slightly worse, quick maths fail.

GBs per pound, 250gb is better

Need to be careful with this one. Just learnt through experience - FAT32 has a max file size of 4GB. That isn't alot when it comes to HD video.

I've been looking at getting a 500Gb version of this, but the cheapest I've seen them is around 70 quid. Heat and rep added

How would a DVD player play HD video?

Some dvd players have codecs in them they can read PC video formats such as DivX and XVid. You can also get machines (I don't think they're dvd players) such as blu-ray players or HD media players that also accept HD video such as MKV's.

I think what the poster was highlighting is that with a hard drive formatted as FAT32 means that a file has a 4Gb size limit, although this is actually try of FAT16 not FAT32. These HD videos usually range from 2Gb anywhere up to 10Gb+, meaning you would not be able to store a single HD video file on one of these drives formatted as FAT32. You'd need to re-format it as NTFS instead, although this may mean it isn't compatible with certain dvd/media players as I believe some only accept FAT32.

Why? just split the files into 4gb or less chunks :whistling:

MKV2VOB for example works a treat :thumbsup:

It is usually a DVD/Divx player if has a usb port on the unit and they normally come with a HDMI port.

None near me :/

Ive got a 2.5" 80GB HDD in a case and use it to play movies on my USB Xvid DVD Player. Can confirm its converted to FAT32. So 4GB thing not correct.
#20
FAT32 does have a max file size of 4GB. Any single file size that is bigger than 4GB will require a hard drive formatted as NTFS for it to work.
#21
None in covernt garden

... or Sheffield City Centre :-(

heat added, i bought the same one for £39 just 3 weeks ago,:)

Wouldn't bother going for the 250gb model I had the last 2 off the shelf at the Fort for me and my bro, they did still have 2 of the 320gb drives though.
#25
lol fat 32

dvd files (vobs) are all less than 4gb so if you want to rip mmmm I mean back up a dvd then even though the VIDEO_TS folder is larger than 4GB each file is less than the max 4GB.

If you want to rip a HQ film like Bluray then one file could be a problem and it would be better to stream it over a network.

To use it with a PS3 then you will need to use a program to format it like "swissknife" or "fat32format"

hope that helps a little
#26
oh yes forgot

you can burn a dual layer disc

UDF format allows you to fill the entire disc with one large file (8.5GB on DVD+R DL discs).

ISO only supports up to 2GB files

use "image burn" it's free

none in oxford street, bond street, selfridges or picadilly circus (the local computers said 4,1,0,0.. but none on the shelves or in the store room).

Thanks.

Just got the last 500GB at £45 and two 320GB at £40 each. Only one 250GB model left at £30 at Leeds City Centre store.

They are placed in an awkward location near the counters on 1st floor, on the shelf with PC Games. The same models are at full price near the laptop area.

No probs. I even checked around the cash till area to see if they weren't stacked with blank DVD-Rs but no luck :( Oxford street was weird because the guy said that the computer says they only came in a few days ago, but he said he didn't remember them coming in.

I'm getting a little fed up of these USB 2.5" HDD deals appearing (Tesco, Sainsburys, and now HMV) and going to the shop and finding out that the computer says there are several in stock, and then they can't be found on the shelves.
#34
There were 2 320GB and 1 250GB version in Bluewater - I've got the last 500GB version :P

That was 2 hours ago though...
#35
I got 2 of 500gb version in Manchester, Market Street (City Center) shop. There are still 4-5 320 gb version and couple of 250gb left before 3 hours.
#36
None in Wood Green London

Sounds like they moved them to a different part of the store from where I got mine from originally thats why I thought they had none.
