DVD not reading DIVX


Since becoming an owner of the HT-C655W home theatre system, I've noticed that the machine has problems reading DIVX DVDs.

It plays fine from USB, but when you insert a DVD with DIVX files on it, it can take minutes to load to the menu/list, and then if it will play at all, the video & audio stutters very badly.

Is anyone else experiencing this?

I've tried updating the software, and cleaning the laser.

A few things I've found to help.

In reply to: DVD not reading DIVX

1. Try DVD+ media. If you use DVD+, try DVD-.
2. Do not use RW media.
3. Close the recording session. An open session requires more work for the players.

Good luck,

have to check what +/- I have.

Pretty sure Mac OS closes all sessions without operator needing to do anything more, so don't think that's an issue.

Pretty sure.

I'm sure that open/closed sessions is an option. Folk stub their toe on that one all the time.
