    I have this dvd player and it has a usb slot where you can play movies off your memory stick. I am planning on getting a Western Digital My Book 500GB Essential USB2.0 External Hard Drive, would I beable to play movies off this?

    Also the dvd player says it is hdmi, what is this? I havent got a hd tv, is it any use to me?

    before you can use the hard drive it has to be formatted also that usb is an input so how are you going to put the movies on the HD?
