View Full Version : Daytek DV5003
I just purchased this divx/dvd player and I need some help with it playing divx/xvid. My 1st attempt was to burn some xvid episodes of the tv show 24. I put 12 episodes on equalling just over 4 gig. I'm getting an unsupported format error on attempted playback. I have downloaded the divxtest cd and most of the test files work, well more than 1/2 anyway, LOL. any help would be greatly appreciated before I return this dang player.
I guess what I'm looking for is burning specifics. What files would play and/or specifics of the avi files I need to avoid and/or use. I filled out the divxtest and submitted it. I would like to try and burn the files again, but I'm not sure what to change or avoid. HELP please, ;-)
Return it and buy a real player :-)
Could be the disk. I suggest you try one episode on one CD-Rom as a test...
Thanks for the response jack. What is a "real" player? I realize this is a cheap wannabe, but it does say on the box it plays divx.
A lot of players do and some of the cheaper ones are better then the more
expensive ones as well I might add :-) It all comes down what you want,
what you need and what you can spend.
Did you try a CD-Rom with an episode? If that works, you don't need
another player, just another type of DVD brand to burn (or burn them
correctly at max 2-4 speed).
Daytek is an SD player so if the files you have are high definition (high
resolution) it won't be able to player them. The step from a 40$ player to a
400$ player is quit bigf to take in your case :-)
My Favorite list:
1 - TViX M-5000U
2 - Snazio Net Cinema HD SZ1350
3 - KiSS DP-600 / Trans-Gear DVX-700
4 - KiSS VR-558
5 - My girlfriend :-)

Thanks again jack. 1 file on a dvd -r works fine. So my next questions are;
1. how many will work?
2. what allows 1 to work but not 12?
3. can I combine episodes to make 1 large file before burning?
I'm thinking trial and error might be the way to find out. I was reading a post somewhere about players not liking more than 2 Gig of avi files on a dvd, any truth to that?
Update- 2 files on a cd work, trying 3 on a dvd now, wish me luck ;-)
It might be the disk was burned too fast. Some players have issues with it
so you can try burning at lower speeds... (4X max) I would not combine
episodes as also big files bring extra trouble on these players...
I'm almost sure using 2X or 4X will fix your issue.
If this is not the disc, it could be GMC or Qpel options in your DviX/Xvid.
Try to open your files with "Gspot" and report here what you find about your files.
It's not since the file works fine if burned to CD :-)
He said 2 files on a CD were working, but did those files work before ?
He's got 12 files, but maybe some of them are working and not the others (due to encoding options). I guess it's an old chipset in the DVD player ?
So he needs to test the fils that was not working, and only those one.
If those two files are working on CD but not on DVD, so you're right Hi-jack it's propably because of the burning process.
Thanks for all the replies guys (gals?). All the 12 files on the dvd did not play. I used 2 of the same files on the cd and 1 of the same file(s) on the dvd to test, all worked. I am now up to 5 files on a dvd which all work. Once agin TYVM for the help. BTW, I did burn them slower 4x on the dvd's(except on the cd, which I used 16x).

Ok, so it's definitely the burning process or the quality of your discs.
What do you mean "the burning process"? I am using Nero.
As Hi-Jack told you, I mean the speed of writing.
But it could be the quality of your discs.
Thanks again folks (do you like my androgenous word?). I have succesfully burned 6 files (over 2G) to 1 dvd-r at 4x speed. Now I think I'll jump to 12 again. Results to follow. All replies very much appreciated.

I burned the 12 files as stated and I ran into audio-sync problems it seems to be progressive. Any ideas on the relevance of many files causing this problem?
Apparently hitting rewind (is that still the correct term considering it's a disc? Reverse perhaps?) for a sec. fixes the audio sync problem. Who knew? and just what exactly is that all about. I know, I know I'm babbling. LOL. Thanks again for any input. Great site Jack!
