Question about LaCie Silverscreen 80GB USB 2.0 - Portable Multimedia (093053682095) Hard Drive

2 Answers

Lacie silverscreen just bought this thing, love it. copied a number of movies to it, some divx, some xvid's, most of them play great, some not at all. all show up on PC in menu, but not on TV. cannot seem to figure out why, checked codec's on non working one's, they are divx & xvid's as well, cant seem to pinpoint why they dont work while others do. interesting side note: the text of the non-working files show up BLUE in the movie folder while the ones that work are BLACK. never fails. dont know if it means something or not, but i have searched all over incl. calling lacie for help, no one can tell me why some work, why some dont. just looking for a failsafe way to convert files so they work everytime. please help!!

    i downloaded a bunch from various P2P sites, friends, my own dvdrips. i dont think it's licensing because my disney movies for example all came from one dvd, some work, some dont. read the thread of the "wont show up on my tv" problem which is similar, but im using the AUX jack on my monitor which shouldnt cause any issues.

Did these movies come from licensed sources, by chance? You may be running into a simple issue of licenses not transfering from your HD/computer to the storage unit.

HOW DO I USE THE USB PORT TO PLAY MOVIES


Tom,

To be able to play movies stored on a USB device (it doesn´t matter if it's a usb pen, a usb hard drive, etc), you will need two things:

1.- The device where you want to play the movies must support the USB device that you're using (not all USBs are the same, and they can be formatted differently, too). So if when you plug it in, the TV doesn´t recognize it, use a different USB device.

2.- The movies that you put on the USB device must be palyable by your device. ie: your TV, BluRay, etc must be able to decode and play the movie format, and this can be AVI, DIVX, XVID, H624, QT, MKV, etc. Even if your device reproduces DIVX movies, if the movie is encoded in a weird format, it won't be playable. The fastest way to know is trial and error.

Any way of dissabling the DivX code so I can Play My own DivX dvd's?


No! these units are pre-programed from the factory, you would need to go online to LG and contact customer support and the technical department to see if this is possible.

Not all DVD-players support DivX encoding of movies.
Check that your DVD-player does support DivX.

Does not play divx/mpeg4 files on dvd disk!!


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.

How to play an avi movie on casio ex-z75??


Hi there
The camera probably doesn't support that type of AVI file, this is because of the encoding it has been done in, for example DIVX, XVID etc. However you should be able to watch it on a PC.

Good luck

Playing DIVX on an LG LH-RH3690 DVD recorder


You can not view from the USB, since the USB port on the DVD player is ver 1.1. The transfer speed is to slow to watch a movie. Alternatively you can copy your movie from your flashdrive to the harddrive and watch from there. You will see what I mean with slow speed when you copy the movie. It takes ages.

Deleted 4 folders for lacie silverscreen 500gb


Dead easy, simply attached the SScreen to your PC/Mac and create the four folders:
"Movies"
"Pictures"
"Firmware"
"Music"

It requires these four folders to boot the OS!

--No Quotes in folder names--

Cheers

DVD movie onto a CD-RW


first off, your not going to get dvd quality on cd, if ur talking about a standard dvd that u wish to put on cd, dont even bother.

4GB(DVD) to 700MB(CD) ? re-encoding it to that size will look like crap.

enjoy

If you can use software to encapsulate the VOB file(s) in an ISO, it will play them in order.

The OS is hidden in memory, you can clear all files off the machine and it will still work.

The only requirements are the 4 folders:
Firmware
Movies
Music
Pictures

That's it!

New firmware can be found at www.lacie.com
