Subject: Question about viewing jpegs on the fm recorder
From: zappermike_at_comcast.net
Date: 2004-06-04


Can this be done? how is it done? I also have a question about the movie viewer. I have downloaded the movies off the website, and they work fine in my recorder. However whenever i try to convert a movie with the gui program it works, but on the recorder its all noise and there is no picture (just a lot of garbled up pixles). Any ideas on how to fix this? On another note i tried to convert through dos, and sadly i keep getting a message telling me that there is no workind avi decompressor. any ideas? plez help.
