    Which DVD DIVX USB Player?

    After reading lots of threads on here, I am down to three different ones
    (i know this isn't a dvd forum, but a hotdeal one, though there seems good experience and advice on here)

    The three are:
    Sigmatek XS-700 Pro
    sigmatekcomputer.com/pro…700
    pixmania.co.uk/uk/…tml

    Quartek HD Rip 80
    pixmania.co.uk/uk/…tml

    Philips DVP5980
    pixmania.co.uk/uk/…tml


    The Philips is winning at the moment, just want to see if anyone on here has used it?
    or so have they attached an extrenal hard drive via USB and played DIVX movies?

    Cheers

    I have the phillips dvp5980, plays "backed up" films brilliantly running off of my 2 gig usb pen, no problems so far.

    I quite like the look of that Phillips one and I need a new upscaling player but the delivery charge is a little high.

    I've got a Phillips DVP5960 and its great for Divx.
    Any USB device attached needs to be FAT32 formatted.
    And if you are connecting an external HDD, it needs to be powered.

    The 5980 does 1080p if that is important (only 1080i with the 5960)
    If not, it might be worth looking for a cheap 5960

    £40?

    A 5960 would suit me fine, thanks for the info man.

    The 5960 definately would

    Unfortunately I have my external HD in NTFS format with over 400gb of data in it.

    A player with USB 2 apparently reads this, but I haven't had that confirmed..

    That 5960 is £40 delivered on amazon.

    You can mix NTFS and FAT32 formatting on the same drive.
    Just create a new partition and format it as FAT32.
