avi from USB drive on a LD4710 not playing

I have just spent the day converting *.avi files in various formats to play on the LD4710 with no result.

The menu finds the files OK and almost loads them but  all attempts have resulted in a  Invalid file popup on the screen.

I have tried mpeg1, 2, 4


The video's first started as a DVD vob file. Once converted they play well on the laptop in windows media player ,


Any ideas on a working converter ?


We now have 10 of these screens and sadly none look like working. Firmware update perhaps?

  What is the exact error message received?  Even for mpeg1,2,3 certain criteria need to be met for the video to be displayed appropriately.  Please check page 44 in the user guide.


  You can use VLC Player (open source) to convert between media formats.  This guide is for converting to fit phones however you can use it as a generic reference.
