Hi folks, I have a few questions about this player.

I've researched it and from what I've seen, I absolutely love this player. But my question is this:

How does the whole video/movie thing work? Can I take my current movie DVD's and put them on the player? If so, how do you do that-does it come with software or do you have to get your own? Is it simple to do? (like putting Lord of the Rings on it, for example)
If you can't do that, do you have to download movies, for money, from sites that offer movies, tv shows, etc?

Option 1 is my preference, so I just wanted to make sure before I shelled out the moolah for one.

Legally, no

If you mean the movie dvds that you buy in the store, rather than the home made ones, then legally you cannot. Movie dvds have encryption on them that prevent them from being copied. You would have to break the encryption in order to copy them and convert to a form that will play on your player. This doesn't mean that such software doesn't exist, but any mention is against forum policies and could result in this discussion being locked or deleted. That is probably why no one has answered.

I could be wrong, but I believe you can put subscription service movies on the player. i.e. like you'd get from Vongo. You'd want to check into that to make sure.

As far as I know, Vongo doesn't work on Creatives but does for Toshiba Gigabeat. Cinema Now (not sure if subscription or purchase) and Amazon Unbox work with Creatives.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
