    Ca Trouble with mplayer ce

    When I go to mplayer and insert a DVD, burned or store bought, nothing happens. It says mounting DVD, please wait, for a few seconds, then dissapears. I have a 4.2e and I am worried that I have that D3-2 drive because I have tried to play a backup game through neogamma and I got error 1101. If I do have that D3-2 drive then would a storebought DVD not work either? I have also read that Mplayer CE cant read the new DVDX title and to just wait for an update to Mplayer CE. I installed DVDx when I sodtmodded at the beginning with the HBC. Am I doing something wrong? I have seen that there is a DVDx installer in HBC browser, should I install that one (ver 3.4)?

    If you have the D3-2 drive you will not be able to read dvd of any kind (until someone fixes it). If you are unable to load a backup from disk, mplayer will not read disks either. Put your movies on usb.

    USB flash drives vs extarnal hard drives

    OK, total noob here, I have tried to look into the whole USB option for games and movies. There is so much info out there, I am not really sure where to start. First of all, what to buy, a flash drive (which is the key sized drive, right?) or the hub where you actually put the disks into? I know the hubs hold alot more, but I am only looking to be able to play the back ups of the 10 games that I own. Is there a way to reduce the size of the games so they still fit on a 16 GB drive and still be playable or to play them off of a SD card? How much room to you need for 10 games? Is one way easier that the other way?

    It depends on the games, many are less than 1g when put onto drive. Only way to know is to load up usbloader and start adding them to a drive. You can always dump the ios back to your pc.

    so then would a 16 GB flash drive work (the key sized one)? Can I still dump the games to it from the USB loader in the HBC? Does it put them on the USB in ISO format? Is this what you mean by storing them on my PC, dump 3 or 4 of them onto the flash drive until it is full, then take the flash drive to my PC and put the backups into a folder on the desktop, then repeat until they are all done? Then about 4 backup games could be stored and alternated from the flash drive depending on which ones I wanted to play? Then how would it worked for saved games?

    Does this work for games that are scratched? Will I still be able to back them up?

    Yes dump to your usb, then move to your pc to back up the ios. If you do that use a wbfs manager that support cios, which is compact- simple ios extraction will generate a dvd sized ios from a very small game file. The new mario is only 377mb, there are many that are small, but some are big.
