Portable DVD player - Need help

Posted by Julie_MI_Z5 (My Page) on

Ok, this is off topic but I'm desperate!

Does anyone hae a portable DVD player?

My shopping is done except for our 14 year old son, whose wish list only includes video games (NOT happening). I thought the DVD player might be a nice idea since he spends lots of time riding in the car.

Can you re-start movies where you left off?

Anything else I should know about these?

You can not re-start movies where you left off, if the DVD player was shut down. You can pause the movie, but the player has to stay powered-on until you start watching it again. This tends to suck battery life.

However, he can just use the scene index and get close to where he was.

Can you play regular movies on a widescreen DVD player??

That whole "widescreen" just totally confuses me. You would all laugh to see me at the electronics store, trying to watch 2 TV's simultaneously and trying to figure out what is different between wide screen and regular.
