    Have you tried installing vplayer or rockplayer? They support almost all video files although I don't know what their tegra 2 compatibility is like.

    I couldnt find rockplayer in the market only the lite version, but it runs avi fine, I don't have any divx files to try

    Yeah, apparently there was an issue with how you donated to the original version or something along those lines. They got around it by creating a lite version and i think they are working on a new method to pay for a non lite version.

    Use Freemake to convert videos that don't work. It's full of effective presets that can be further fine-tuned and customized to your liking. I took the android preset and customized it for resolution to be "Same as source" and switched the codec from MPEG-4 to Hx264. Now all my videos convert with minimal loss of quality and they're streamlined to work on my EVO(so long as they're 720p or less), Xoom, whatever.

    just hit yes on that message box and it will zip right over, it is a standard windows warning when transferring what windows knows to be media to a device windows doesn't have certain drivers for because windows tries to detect compatibility.... just yes and all will be good (check the box and hit yes if you are moving multiple files).

    i wonder whether the moboplayer can help you , it supports almost any formats.
    and if your video can't play still, maybe a video converter can help you.
