Question about Magnavox NB500MG1F Player

1 Answer

What formatting is necessary to play videos on the SD card slot of my Magnavox NB500MG1F Blu Ray Player?

Magnavox NB500MG1F Blu Ray Player SD Card Slot: I've been having trouble getting the SD card slot to read the videos I put onto the SD card. I've tried everything from converting all the video files to AVCHD file types as well as trying their original file types, unformatting the SD card, reformatting the SD card, trying different SD cards, trying different videos, and I'm still getting the same error message: "Media Device Error --Please check the Memory Device-- There is no playable file in the Memory Device, or the format is not available." Does anyone have any suggestions to try? Is there a certain format the SD card must be set to? Do the video files need to be converted to a certain format? All fix it suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

The SD card is mainly for photos, but you can do video.
The SD card needs to be formatted as fat 16
The video has to be profile 1.1

If you use the larger SDHC cards, they can be formatted fat 32.
It works best if you format it with the player and not your computer.

SOURCE: My blu ray player is not playing correctly. when i

I think you mean you replaced the Blu-ray DISC. If the fault is there after the PLAYER is replaced, it would be the TV at fault...
This sounds like you need a firmware upgrade. Follow the directions on the maufacture's website exactly and do not disconnect power during the update or play with the remote.

SOURCE: Just purchased this Magnavox DVD/VCR combo

I hope you are connecting 5 RCA jacks when using the component video out. HDMI cable carries both audio and video over one single cable but the component video has 5 jacks, 3 for video ( Red/Blue/Green ) and 2 for audio ( Red/White ).

You should know what kind of flashcard you need depends on the price and function, also on the
console you have! If you have a DS or DSi console, playing 3ds games is not a reality for you,
you should choose one from kinds of flashcards that support ds and dsi games! You have many
choice there, r4i gold, r4i dual-core, r4i sdhc and so on. They may have a little difference on
price, but that's doesn't matter! Function is another factor you must care, many people want
to use flashcard to play retro gba and snes games on ds, dsi and 3ds. At that time, you should
put functions that flashcards have in comparison though they have the most similar functions!
Supercard dstwo is the best flashcard to play emulator games ever as I know!

It is obvious to me that the player can't read the video off an SD drive. In my experience that card slot is for installing updated firmware not video material.

PROBLEM playing sd card


The slot is for playing many, but not all SD cards. What movies do you think it should "read"

What is a sd card fof


If you store movies on a SD memory card you can insert the SD memory card into this player to view the movie. You may have taken a video of your children on a video camera which stored the video on the SD memory card.
For information for viewing movies/videos on a SD memory card check out page 18 on the User manual.
If you do not have a manual then you can download the user manual from this WEB site

Buy a cd/dvd lens cleaner they run about $8-$10 at the store. If that doesn't work the laser is probably bad.

I cant play some blu-ray disc how can i get some of them to work


since it doesn't have enough RAM in it, some BDs or larger multi-layer DVDs fail to play/load entirely Its slow to buffer BD, and even slower to upscale DVDs. It doesn't support homemade DVD+/-R movies. It also doesn't support video on CD.

SOLUTION:
to get the movie to play add a 4GB SD card into it and format it for use as extra memory. Apparently, some BDs require a lot of memory. By adding the SD card, DVDs and THE BDs load faster and have no play problems. The overall downside to the RAM issues and the SD card is that, when the SD card gets full,you will have to reformat it to get anything to play. Tho, all lost disc info needs to be rebuffered onto the card the next time you watch the movie.

It goes to a black screen with a yellow sign with a arrow on it pointing down, it also has a green, yellow, and red bar at the bottom.it stops at the red.


Had this same issue. Your probably trying to play either Crank2 or StarWars. Talked to Panasonic Tech Support and they said not enough memory to play disc and gave me these instructions:

"This movie title requires that an SD card of 128MB or larger to be inserted into the BluRay player prior to inserting the BD disc each time you watch this movie.

The SD card must be formatted in the BlRay player before use. (Do not format the SD card on your PC)

Formatting an SD card in the player:
-Insert an SD card (1GB or higher) into the SD slot of your BluRay
-Press [FUNCTIONS], select "other Functions" and press [OK]
-Select "Card Management" and press [OK], then follow the on-screen commands

Once formatting is complete, leave the SD card in the SD card slot. Insert the movie disc into the BluRay player and it should play normally."

Personal note, the bar graph that has always stopped at the red will hesitate for quite a while and then the rest of the bar will fill up and BD will begin to play.

Crank 2 blue ray plays in a small square


Hi, Ref common problem with Blu-ray players only playing crank 2 in a small section of the screen. It seems the film needs extra buffer memory on your player. If you have a card reader slot, ie USB or SD, put in a blank card and the film plays fine. I have Panasonic DMP-BD35 which has a SD slot on the front, i used a 32MB card and the film played with no problems. Hope this info helps.
Regards. Rob.
