    No support for NTFS, means no USB Hard Drive support.. basically you are typically stuck with plugging in 2Gb memory sticks (unless you have more expensive ones, and even then you max out at 32 GB.. if you really want to make your movie collection accessible this is pretty useless. Time for firmware update Sony to support NTFS.. The information on the box and web review mostly miss this fact.

    • Macy2k

      This is not correct. I’ve this player and works pretty fine with my WD Passport HDD 160Gb formatted as FAT32!
      The main limitation for FAT32 is the maximum file size of 4GB that’s usually enough for mostly of DivX, MP4 HD video files, but sometimes can result limitating.
      There are up to 1GB HDD that supports FAT32, however I agree that an upgrade to support NTFS would be appreciated by everybody!

    • F Atchison

      You can reformat the hard drive to FAT32 (e.g. use Swissknife). However you need to split the files to avoid the 4194302 limit (2^22 – 2 bytes: you only find this trying to understand why you get a “not enough space” message for a 500GByte disk). I dump the separate files into a sub-directory with sequential numbers (see the handbook) and I don’t notice the join! Note: it carries on playing everything it can find on the disk!

    Great! 1 more thing to add is “Output 2 PC Monitor”.

  • Starview 7

    Bought this in the mini WDTV a Christmas gift. It will work because it plays DivX and other files. menu load time was slow initially, ext. hard disk. Does not support MKV. It is very good and the remote is well built. Everything seems that was not very well thought out, once released.
