Maderin, didn't know there was an older and a newer version, hard to keep up with all those players
. It seems to be hard to find the supported codecs for this player. I even couldn't find the specs of the player mp4nation sold.
Cindytm, that's weird, i would expect a different codec, but both of your movies are divx and both are in (simple@L3).
The next thing that would be a problem is the kbps, the one that works is 767 kbps, the one that doesn't work is 799 kbps so the difference is not that big and i don't think that is a problem.
What could be the problem then is the resolution, the one that works is 360*272, the one that doesn't work is 230*272. Try to convert the video that doesn't work with thesame codec, but change the resolution to 360*272, and try to play that file. If that doesn't work, convert the file to 767 kbps to see if that's the problem.
The best thing you can do this to see what works, is to make the video smaller, let's say make it to 10 minutes playtime. And convert that 3 times, one with the resolution of the video that plays fine, one with the kbps that plays fine, and one with both the resolution and kpbs, put these 3 files in the internal memory of your player and try to play the 3 files. If the one with the converted resolution works fine, then the resolution is the problem. You just have to know that you need to convert it to 360*272 then.
For the micro sd card, try the not working card also in another product, like a mobile phone, if it works in there, you can use it for that product, if that also doesn't work, then it's no good micro sd card. Personaly, i did buy pretty much stuf on ebay and i never had a problem with it. Before i buy, i make sure that the price is good and not unbelievable cheap, if i didn't buy from the seller before, i ask a question and see how fast he responds and how, and i look from reactions from other customers before i buy something. I had more luck with things buying on ebay, then buying in the local shop. I had 2 usb memory sticks that didn't work at all, buyd from a local shop. Even with my pc that i buyd from a local shop, i had troubles with it from the moment i buyd it and used it, i send it for 4 or 6 times back, they put in a new motherboard, memory, 3d card, until it was out of warranty, then i made it myself but i couldn't fix the usb ports, so i had a usb card to put in the pc. But then i had enough of it, and i ordered a pc from ankermann, and it works perfect for the last 4 years. Maybe i'm just lucky with buying from internet, but i had more luck from that then from buying from a local store. The only thing that broke that i bought from the internet was the Mahdi T951 player, where the internal battery leaked. Very strange that the battery leaked, because normaly it's not possible for this type of battery to leak?
Why do i always have to tell a story when i try to help?
