The player plays strictly DIVX files, but not variants like XVID (which today is more common since divx became not free).
Divx is actually the same than XVID. After spending days converting my files from xvid to divx, realized that changing only the FOURCC code of the files works.
Look for a program named videoinspector. It allows to edit the fourcc for a video file. for all xvid and variants change the fourcc of the files to DIVX. The change takes a second instead hours of conversion, and movies in xvid that used not to play on this device, now will be played without problems.

it can be formatted as the wrong type but more than likely it just doesn't recognize the files... and im pretty sure you have to put an ipod into drive mode to use it like that on things its not intended to be an "ipod" on

On order to make an external hard drive readable from a dvd player you need to reformat the hard drive to fat32 format. Most DVD players are only able to read drives formatted in the FAT32 system,
To format the ext hard drive to Fat32 you will need to connect it to your computer first to carry out the formatting.
1) Click "Start" then "Run"
2) Type "CMD" into the text box, then press "Enter."
3) Type "Format /FS:FAT32 X:" into the command prompt, replacing the letter "X" with the actual drive letter of your USB hard drive. If you do not know the drive letter of your hard drive, open "My Computer" and look under "Devices with removable storage." BE SURE YOU HAVE SELECTED THE CORRECT DRIVE LETTER TO FORMAT. Then press "Enter".
4) Press "Y" when you have identified the correct drive and you are ready to format the hard drive. All data present on the drive will be erased once it has been formatted. The drive will now be formatted to FAT 32
5) Load the films onto the USB hard drive. Be aware FAT32 file system cannot support files larger than four gigabytes.
6) Connect the ext hard drive to your DVD player via usb and select "USB Device" or it may be labelled as external device. Your DVD player should recognise the device and play the films.
