Does anyone know whether the Toshiba sd210e plays VCD and/or SVCD format?
Not sure where all the SD210E owners are , reading a couple of web ads. for these they both said (presumably using the same Tosh-prepared text) 'plays most Video CDs' so I'm guessing that means the formats you mention.
I believe it plays VCD, but when playing SVCD it had lip synch problems. This is from memory, my old 210 is in my sons bedroom now.
When I had a 330 that also had lipsync problems, I don't think Toshiba were interested in ever fixing this problem.
Thank's ppl, especially KraGorn who I'd personally like to dedicate the following smiley to
Well checking the SD210e Here it is stated as playing VCD & SVCD. One person reported lip sync problems, but this was on VCD not SVCD.
All the reports are from people that have actually got the DVD player and not just a company stating that their player can do this & that when in the real world it can't.
You know I've been visiting that site nearly every day for a looong time and never knew that page existed.
Yeh, its a great page for finding out what a DVD player can and can't do. I use it all the time when people ask if their DVD player can play certain types of disc. As I said, its not just Toshiba etc claiming the player works with a certain disc, but actual users who have tried the discs.
I know the 220E will - my parents have one which I specifically chose for them, as they needed VCD/SVCD support. No problems with it so far. I tried to buy one myself, but couldn't find a multi-region version anywhere near where I live, so went for a Pio DV-350 - another excellent player that does VCD/SVCD.
