Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
I recently purchased this Philips SA52XX MP3 player with the hopes that I could watch movies while out & about. I have DVDs that will allow for download but after attempting to convert the DVD files to an acceptable format with the accompanying software; Media Converter 2.5, I continue to get the error message stating that I do not have the correct MPEG codec and that I should go to wikpedia.com to download this codec. I have downloaded multiple codecs to include DivX, Mpeg streamclip, Final Codecs 2008, etc.....Nothing seems to work. I really need assisatnce or I see no other recourse but to return this product.
Hi people. I had the same problems.
Uninstall Media Converter and any codec packs you have.
Install K-Lite Codec Pack 5.0.0 (Full)
Reinstall Media Converter
The converter plays havoc with Windows Explorer 8 so you need to uninstall it (control-panel-uninstall programs-updates) then reinstall it when you have installed the codecs and the converter.
Hope this helps

The phillips SA52XX is a harder machine to work.Unless you go on rhapsody,which I think is mostly unfair that you have to keep paying to make the thing download,you have to have a video converter,which for most people are very hard to use.Personally my solution is to use limewire.I go onto limewire set it so it shares what I download,or share it manually and pull up a windows media player at the same time.For music files every type works.Video files are tricky.What I have found is you have to look up the name of the video and then type Mpg or Mpeg.Then,hopefully,it will spit out atleast one or two relatively good videos under the file format of Mpg or Mpeg.Otherwise I have not found anyother way to convert and download.

Hey there philips user i may have a solution that will work for you instead of trying to get the MPEG-4 codec to work try using a WMV files it has always worked for me when i do this

If you download AVS4You software navigator and download avs video converter 6 from the list, you can convert your dvd to a format that will download onto your phillips sa52 player. If it is the trial version it will have a logo keep popping up to spoil the result on your player...you need to pay about £25 for the full version for a year or about £35 for unlimited useage. You can only use the licence on one computer. If it breaks down or you lose everything you can still download again onto that computer...BUT...if you change your computer you need to buy another licence...otherwise it works great.!! hope this helps...JIM
