I purchased one of the HDs below and formated from NTFS to FAT32 with Paragon Hard Disk Manager 2009 Professional Edition...I put some divx movies on it after formating and plugged it in the USB socket on the DVD player....Way and behold it showed up and started playing! So now i have a 250gb hard drive to choose from instead of using USB flash memory dongle pens.

I thought this was what the drives were made for!

The future is here people.
You heard it here first!

You're kidding - are you telling me that I don't have to use a small USB drive, but can infact use a large USB drive? Nice, I'm surprised no one else has done this.

Oh my...

I just thought i would help people out who did nt know you can use a HARD DRIVE inside of the USB Memory pens. I certainly did nt know you could plug a hard drive into the usb socket on a dvd player....I thought it was only for the flash memory pens.

I posted the info so people knew it will only work as a drive formated as FAT...

If you already knew how to do this then good on ur...:thumbsup:
