Home DVD Player that supports movie rips from USB Flash Driv

by hy0tt0k0 / February 28, 2009 8:27 AM PST

I'll start with my question. I'm looking to purchace a new DVD player that supports playback from a USB flash drive. I have purchaced HUNDREDS of dvds over the years, and I recently started backing them up onto my computer. My goal is to be able to just go onto my computer, grab the movie I want to watch, and run it on my TV. All the forums on here are VERY outdated, some going back 3 years, and knowing how technology changes, thats ancient stuff. I'm also not looking to break the bank, or buy cutting edge. Does a DVD player exist that will do what I want without forcing me to convert my files to some special format everytime? And please, no next-gen consoles, thanks!

I had problems with a couple different argosy external drive cases I bought a few years ago. Really buggy firmware anyway.

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?
