I have a problem with my DMA2200 media center extender
Some of the (AVI) files don't playback on my DMA2200 while the exact same file will play on my PC media center!!!
I mean in my DMA2200 I can even see the thumbnail of the movie that I want to playback but as soon as I choose it gives me the msg that the file can't be played due to a codec problem or that it may be corrupted while I can play the same file on my PC media center
Can some1 please help solve this issue?
Thank you in advance?

well prior to your last post I have tried using a program called (Xilisoft Video Converter) and I was converting the files into MPEG format cuz I know for sure that the DMA2200 support and it worked just gr8 but the only downside was that the file size as u know when u convert it to an MPEG increases and that will eat ur hard disc space but u gave me an idea in your last post to try and convert the file with the same program to (Xvid) format.
Again I would really take this chance to thank you for all of your help and supportWith best regards

I can give you a **much** quicker solution to fixing your DIVX encoded AVI files so that they will play on the DMA2200, at least, this fix works on mine.
All you need is to download the XVID codec which comes with a tiny program called, "Nic's FourCC changer". I don't know who "Nic" is, but this program saves a ton of time!
You launch the program and can either drag-and-drop your problematic AVI file onto it, or browse using the browse box. In the two boxes will show both the CODEC and the FOURCC identifier. Change both to XVID (upper or lower case, doesn't matter), and click "Apply".
Once you click the "Apply" button, I promise you, the file will immediately be play-able on the DMA2200. It's the greatest and easiest fix yet, and takes much much less time than re-encoding, and without degradation of the video quality at all!!
PS: If the file won't open in "Nic's FourCC changer", then you must have it open in some other program, maybe GSpot, or a media player, etc. so make sure the file isn't being accessed.
