What People Are Saying

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not satisfied I bought the LG dvd player for the usb port option because I have hundreds of movies and home videos on memory sticks/flash drives. I was really disappointed that the player didnt allow playback of mp4 format.Even after converting a few files to mpg, I still got the error message saying playback wasnt allowed. So I'll be returning it to the store today. There should be more than one playable movie formats.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I got a real lemon! I don't watch many DVD's, but bought this for those times I do. I purchased this player on 12/30/13 and upon attempting to view my 4th dvd in April of 2014, I heard a grinding sound when I turned on the player and then the door continued to open & close repeatedly! I was able to return it to Target, so I got my money back, but probably won't be in any hurry to purchase electronics from LG in the future!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great little machine I recently bought the DVD/USB, which is a small DVD player with a USB port. I have several of my favorite movies on a memory stick that I keep inserted into the USB port. This little gem allows me to watch continuous movies while falling asleep at night. Love it!!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from good for the money I purchased the the DP122 because I had just purchased an LG big screen TV 55ls4500. Although both have great quality, I was disappointed that the two are not compatible. I called customer service who confirmed this. I was hoping for seamless integration.

The instructions say that this DVD player plays divx files. However the divx files, 720p or home theatre, will not play on this device. Is there a particular type of divx file it is comparable with?

Asked by: Charlesp
We regret the inconvenience you have experienced with this BluRay player. The files being viewed are at too high a resolution for compatibility. According to page 7 of the owner’s manual, the available resolution size of video files is 720x576. Other specifics are listed here as well.
