I have music videos on my flash drive that I want to play on my car DVD player, but it says the files are unsupported. How can I convert them to supported files?

    (Make sure flash drive is in Fat format, but I think it already has the format)

    Hello, The first thing would be to consult the user's manual for your DVD player and find out what kind of files it is compatible with.  Once you know that, it is just a matter of converting the files to a format compatible with it.  What is the formatting for you video files in your USB?  Can you provide us with the make and model of your car DVD player?  You can use free video converters such as the following:

    With this converters it it just a matter of loading the file, select the format to convert to, select a few settings for bitrate, size, etc.  and then just wait for converting to finish.  Let us know if you need any more help
