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.
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.
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.
