Most players have a specific format - that may include frame size/ratio, bit rate etc - and can only run that EXACT format.

What is invalid format in dvd operation?

Perhaps you tried to make a DVD yourself? and most DVD players accept DVD with photographs and MP3 music, but only when you keep yourself to the folder format and file format, described in the manual. When you try to burn a DVD from a MP4 file, you can be sure it won't work.
Can you share what you think should be on the disk you try to play, when the player responds with invalid file format? and can you add the brand an model number in the text, in stead of on top of the question?

How do you add music,videos, and photos to your mp3 player?

Check the specification of your MP3 player for the types of file format it can play for music, videos and photos. The most common file formats for MP3 players are mp3 for music, avi for videos and jpg for photos. You need to convert the music, video and photos into these file formats before copying them to you MP3 player via the supplied USB cable from your computer.
For instructions on converting music files, click on this link and follow my instructions :-
For photos, save them in jpg file format before copying them to your MP3 player.

Cant add videos to mp3 player

Actually, ultimatum, this particular model does play both music and video files, though the latter must be in AMV format. The mp3 player should have come with a CD containing the conversion software you will need. If not, try googling 'WMV (or whatever filetype your videos are) to AMV converter'.

I do not think it is possible to transfer videos directly from YouTube to your player, but there is software out there that will let you "record" videos online and save them to your computer. These files can, in turn, be converted and transferred to the device via the included software.

Hope that helps.

Dvd not playing dvds

Basic Information:

i) try to choose  right burner for eg: Nero CD/DVD Burner

ii) try to choose the right format,

     for eg: MP3/MP4/ Audio Songs will come under Audio format
               in such case select "Audio CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner

     for eg: .DAT/MPEG/MP4/Video will come under Video format

                in such case select "Video CD/DVD format" in Nero CD/DVD Burner

     for eg: "DATA CD format" is only storing some data on CD/DVD iresspective whether it is                            Videofile or Audio file,

Videos....plezzz help me!!!

I had the same problem, I transfered files already in AVI format and the player did not recognize them. I used the sofware that came with the player (AVI Converter, I think) to convert my videos to AVI and I selected that the program copy them directly to player ( the player has to be connected to your computer while converting the files, obviously) instead of doing it manually. At least that worked for me. Another option is to convert the videos to flash format (.flv). I don't know why the player reads those kind of files (as per the manual and GPX web page it's supposed to read AVI only) but it works. Hope this helps.
