in your owners manual it should list the codecs that are compatible ( eg. avi mp4 ect ) try to make sure those are the ones that you play . also check there website to see if they offer any updates for the system itself . Sometimes they do , and it's just a matter of downloading them onto your usb drive and installing them into the unit . They will give you instruction on there website if this is an option . Oh and make sure you know the model number of the unit before you go to the site to make things easier for yourself

SOURCE: I have the Sylvania SDVD1030,

A codec works like a video compressor as well as a video interpreter. It takes the file and un-compresses it to what the player needs as well as how to generate the picture. Unfortunately there are literally hundreds of them. So normally you get a problem where a video was generated or saved using a different codec. The other part to this which is your problem is that you can use different codecs to create the same file and then you can change options on each of these. So you can find two seemingly identical videos and one will play while the other won't. On a computer you just load a codec software suite which installs hundreds of codecs. Unfortunately on a player like this you can;t load the, You are stuck with what it came with.

Having said or typed all that I ran across quite a few complaints about this player not being able to play mp4 or mpegs unless they are on a dvd disk. It will not read them from the usb. I would guess that the usb interface is not capable of the larger data rate a mp4 requires. So you may find if you burned the mp4 to a disk they would play but you won't be able to play them off of the usb.

I'd suggest either burning them to a dvd or trying a different file type like a AVI You can find most movies in avi format or you could use a commercial dvd versions which should play fine. So basically I don;t think you will get those movies or any mp4's to play off of the usb stick. You either need dvd versions or you will have to leave it behind. I'd try to find some dvds as that flight is a real killer as far as boredom goes. wish I a fix or work around for you but there isn't one.

Best way here is to (I have done this) use a free translation service like Babel Fish to translate words in the menu until you find the one you need to click on with the remote to change language.

I can't figure how to get the closed captions to work. I am nearly deaf.

You can select OSD language, and select audio/subtitle/menu
language of DVD discs if available. Also you can select font type for mpeg4 subtitle

Remember you get SUB-TITLE only if your DVD supports it meaning contains it at the first place.

My dvd player starts the movie over every time I turn the car on. Previous reviews said it would start back where it stopped. the manuel gives no information on this. Help!

Hi Arlene,

I checked Amazon for this player and looked at the questions and reviews. As luck would have it, I found this:

Q: dvd player: Does the Sylvania SDVD8791 dvd player remember where the movie stopped?

A: No, It's starts the movie over everytime the player is turned off.

So it appears that at least one other person is having the same experience as you are having. At first, I thought if you had it wired wrong it would "forget" but since it is portable and lacks batteries - that wouldn't be the case. For these same reasons, I can't imagine how a player can remember the location on a disk if power is removed from it. In any case, I doubt there is anything wrong with the player, it simply doesn't function as you were erroneously told or as hoped. When in the car, you should probably tell those watching to note the location on the disk before shutting off the car.

The Amazon link I used for my reply can be found here:

Good luck!
