Tired downloading

Just a suggestion, but you obviously posted this problem in the wrong section, because the SA178 does not support video. For other SA models, however:
First, The Philips (Arcsoft) Media Converter that came with the installation CD is used for converting and transferring video files specifically to your device. If you have lost the CD, grab the updated Media Converter from

Second, even that Media Converter cannot handle a full-length DVD. You will have to acquire a video editing software that will allow you to break the video into 15-minute chunks. Run each chunk through the Media Converter and you will have to watch the video in 15-minute pieces.

Good luck!
