Pls tell me what range an AVI video file resolution, MPEG4-XVid or DivX, Frame rate, sample rate and bit rate are playble in Samsung C360 DVD Palyer. Why I cannot play some AVI video files at all Thanks

One possible cause would be the player. Their is a chance that the DVD player do not support the version of your AVI. Try to use Total Video Converter, this is what i use when i cannot play a video on our LCD TV. Hope it helps thanks.

Xbox has downoladed new update an still cant play .avi files off my hardrive?? error code

Certain files can't be played even if they say they're .avi. And this is considering you have downloaded the "extra update" on the marketplace for media files. Or you can try deleting the update and redownloading it.

In the middle of a video, playing from a thumb drive, I suddenly get the message "This data type is not supported" (800288BF) The video was fine up until that point. The file name changed form the name...

It sounds like there could be an issue with the codecs of the file. Does it happen to all files you are watching. Also what type of files is this happening on? AVI, MP4....etc. Also make sure that the File system of the thumb drive is in FAT. Check to see if you have the latest update from the PSN.

Ive just connected the wii to the tv and the wii turns on but i cannot see the wii channel on the fios tv. how do i get the channel to show?

When you connect your wii to the tv the channel will be the avi channel, look on your remote is should have a button that says avi, just turn your wii on and keep pushing the avi button until the channel for your wii comes on.

My psp won't play movies from the computer

You can do the other stuff just AVI files work best I think. You can either convert the iso file to AVI or mpeg4 if it will let you or you can download the avis through file sharing.

Hi there.

I had the same problem. I solved mine by re-downloading the Optional Media Update from xbox live, and everything was fine after that.

Hope that works for you too.
