Playing Movies From Portable Hard Drive

Your DVD player probably only allows playback from certain formats. Without knowing what the file format is of the movies and what ones the DVD player uses, i'd assume that is the case.


Depending on your TV, you can use a monitor cable (dunno the actual name for it...VGA possibly) that plugs into your laptop and should fit on the back of most TVs these days. Alternatively, if your laptop n TV have HDMI cables, use one of those.


And another alternative, which is what I use currently, is to get a media player which you plug a hard drive into and it plays the video / music / pictures to your TV via HDMI.
