look at the manual on pioneer's website? I've played burned dvd's on my old p5700dvd but never tried what you are.

i know i can be done but for some reason its not working. i think ill try to load the music on there from windows media player or itunes(per operation manual) but i dont know what program i can use to load the videos and movies.

you might try reformatting the card, and so it doesnt take forever to read try loading one song on the blank sdhc and then try it with one movie, also i dont think the unit will read .wmv files

you have to turn on show file extensions, open my documents>tools>folder options>view then uncheck the hide extensions for known file types
I know it will read .avi files from a dvd and from a jump drive

hey lilsolo do me a huge favor, turn ur hu on a change the source from like radio to usd or sd and turn your volume up while it is attempting to read the device and let me know if you can hear anything, turn the volume up to like 30 but turn it back down before the music or whatever starts playing

i tried it but the converter has so many side options that its hard to find the right one. ill keep trying but i also downloaded the divx converter so i will try that one as well.

ok thanks because mine does this as well and I was wondering if I had done something wrong, do you not have a small .avi file that you could try
