I have been using this unit for a couple of years with no problems.
Today None of the files in AVI format (that we've watched many times in the past) are working.
They all come up with the message "Unable to play the selected file.  Please refer to the user manual for a list of supported file formats."
its an older firmware (1.01.77) but that shouldn't matter.  One day it plays my AVIs and now it won't?
Anyone have any idea whats going on?
thanks.

I have the same problem. The first file will play if I pull the power plug and reset. But then nothing will work... just get the "unable to play the selected file" message. My unit worked fine for months and then this started happening about a month ago.
