Question about DVD & Blu-Ray Players

Open Question

Mi8000 iFlip does not allow usage of an iPod Classic 80GB with video capabilities. Nowhere on the outside packaging or inside instructions is this statement made, with directly misleads a consumer into making this purchase without knowing about this issue. Sound does come through speakers, but no video appears on the screen, making the iFlip useless with this iPod. How do I either return this product to the manufacturer for a refund, or is there an upgrade or additional part I can purchase to resolve this issue? This purchase is not refundable at the place of purchase, and this unit was the only model they had available.

    I bought one as a Christmas gift and they received the ipod 120 and it doesn't work with that one, but the guy at the place I purchased it from said it worked with all generation ipods with video. This too was a retail store that would not allow returns ...going out of business. It can't be used and it would be nice to either get my money back or find out if there is something that Memorex can do to make them work for all ipods.

There's an easier (and less expensive) answer... downgrade the firmware on your iPod of version 1.0.2. For some inexplicable reason, at that level (not higher or lower), my iPod 160GB Classic plays movies without issue on the Philips. Regarding how to downgrade your firmware, it's explained at various other sites but in short you replace the two Software Update files in the iTunes directory, disconnect from the internet (to prevent iTunes from automatically downloading the newest version) and then restore your iPod. Once you've got 1.0.2 installed, re-synch and it'll work like a charm!

Hi Guys,

The only solution for this problem is to follow
1. laser clean up. you can find it in any electronic shops and clean the laser reader of your dvd player
2. Disc clean up (optional) as the problem is mainly from the dvd player/reader.
3. Unhook the power chord and restart again... see whether it works
4. If all these method does not work, you need to repair the player. But please remember, it will costs you around 50 dollars and by that money, you can buy a new and good dvd player.
5. If its a dvd recorder that has the problem of unknown disc, then just use your recorder for recording and instead of repair it, buy a new dvd player for 50 dollars.

SOURCE: firmware upgrade failure

If your computer recognizes the Seagate drive in the setup menu you can format the drive using DOS.
But, I agree with "Ginko"... ask Toshiba for warranty repair due to "special circumstances". I worked in a Sony Authorized Service Center for many years and in circumstances like yours they readily provided it because they didn't want to lose a single customer. Sony would send a Letter of Authorization to the customer and the person would bring their unit to us for a "one-time" warranty repair. Call Toshiba and threaten to "Never buy another Toshiba product the rest of your life!". That should do it...If not...too bad for Toshiba! I wish you good luck!

Go to Radio Shack.  You're going to need an IPod dock that has video playback capability, an av cable with the three av outputs.  Then you will need a mini jack cable that plugs into the video and another mini jack stereo cable for the sound.  You made need a coupler as well.
They only make home cables for Ipod systems.  The other wires will convert the home cables for portable DVD use.

Philips DCP855/37 Portable DVD Player...when I try to charge up the lithium battery it does not charge. The directions say to turn off the power and the green charge light will turn on. When I plug it in...

Batteries in these things don't last very much; it is most likely a bad battery. Replace the battery with a new one and your problem should be solved.

Ipod nano

Is this a new nano (3G)?  If so, the only way to output videos is by purchasing a new Apple component or composite cable.  They are $49.  No other way exists apart from connecting it to your computer to play videos outside of the ipod itself.

IPod 160 Classic

From an Amazon Post: 5 of 6 people found the following review helpful: stars-3-0._v47082372_.gif An iPod Classic 160gb CAN BE made to work with one of these units, December 22, 2007 By Technophile "Technophile" (Detroit, MI USA) - See all my reviewsThere is a way to make the iPod Classic 160 gb work with the Philips line of Portable DVDs with iPod docking but its awkward and requires the purchase of Apple's Composite AV Cable ($50). Apple installed in the 6th generation iPods what amounts to an electronic lock. When you set the player up to send out video externally it will ask you to "Please Connect Video Accessory". It's looking for the sixth generation Apple Composite AV Cable plug. Somewhere embedded in the plug's configuration is the key to the lock that the player is looking for. Once you insert this plug the movie you have selected will begin to play and all you have to do then is remove the cable and insert the unit into the dock and you should see your video displayed. As i said before, this is an awkward work around and should you go back to the main menu to select a different movie you will have to perform these steps again. For those of you (like me) who were stuck with one of these units, this work around just might make you feel a little better about your purchase. Good Luck!!!!
