I’m always bad on figuring what forum to put questions in so I often just ask in the newbie forum, but this one doesnt seem to belong there. I recently got a jsi js5113 dvd player (dont bother searching for info on it, you won’t find it). there are 4 other jsi models on videohelp but not this one. After extensive research, it seems to be the same company as oritron and koss (koss dvd players which are made by this company and they just licience the name). their website is down (heard they are restructuring).
So anyway this player (like has been reported with other jsi players) seems to play anything. I have confirmed that it will play xvid, divx3 and 5, svcd, nero digital and I assume most other formats based on what others have said about other jsi players. I have philips and a uslogic (compusa brand and it is discontinued) multiformat players and it will play files they wont.
So here is the problem and my reason for asking about menus. With my other players (when playing from a data disk with diffrent format files), it brings up a menu that basically shows the folders and files. The jsi player doesn’t show this menu, it just plays through the files in order. I can bring up info on it and find the number value of the file and folder being played, but it never gives a menu (and the menu key doesn’t work). Once, and only once, I saw such a menu from the jsi player (not sure how but aparently it does have the capability). The jsi player has a usb port and to my amazment (it was mega cheap), it suports a usb hard drive formated fat32. I have already tested and it has no problem playing anything from the hard drive.
the problem is, no menu. I want to put tv shows on the hard drive (possibly a thousand files), and while I could create a numeric system, and use the info tab (which acording to the documentation, you can enter numbers and jump to whatever file), I would rather just use names and use a file folder type system (I saw a menu like that pop up once so there has to be a way).
Any kind of menu system would be great. Anyone got any ideas or links on menus with data files?
