Mr Alex,

PLEASE take the time to at least READ the very email you replied to!!!!!

I'll help you by quoting it for you, and also help you out by removing
some parts that don't apply to you in this case.

Strike one.

Strike two.

Strike three.

In the future, please try to follow our guidelines.........

Now to your question. Rockbox can't play DivX files on any platform, you
would have to convert them first.And even then, the movie playback in
Rockbox is not yet fully functional. Rockbox is primarily an audio
player firmware.

We will probably solve these issues soonish, and then I think I could
recommend a Gigabeat.
