Went and bought a DVD player that was multi format and was told was good for what I wanted. For your information it plays the following formats. DVD Video,DVD Audio,DVD Ram,DVD-R,CD,CD-R/RW,SVCD.VCD,JPEG. If I have data that is Divx etc, do I have to convert it so that they will play on my player, Maybe it's a rubbish player? Was going to purchase a KISS player but quite expensive so I opted for a Panasonic instead. Many thank to all who reply.
