    Hi guys

    I recently got a WD TV Live (HD media player that plugs into your TV) and I was thinking of using my Desire as the mass USB storage device that plugs into it.

    So getting a new 32GB SD Card, throwing a couple of BluRay movies on there and plugging my Desire in and playing the films.

    Can anyone see any issues with this? The phone is getting charged while it's plugged into the WD TV Live so battery life isn't a problem.

    Cheers :)

    32GB cards only come in class 2. That's not going to be enough to stream Hd I wouldn't expect

    The class rating isn't necessarily accurate, my old Sandisk class 2 gave 6Mb down/4Mb up.


    Though, Case, you could just get an external hard disk and put all your movies on it and leave it beside your TV...

    Cheers for the replies guys.

    Ah right, so the class thing might be an issue.

    I have actually got a 1tb external drive as well which I will be using at home but I was thinking about the times when I want to take a movie round to a mates or something (everyone is getting these media players now!).

    It was either get a USB stick or an SD card for my phone. I thought I could increase my phone memory while I'm at it!

    So can I get a 16gb one that would do the job? Or is a USB stick the best bet?

    There is a class 10 one here: http://www.play.com/Electronics/Ele...d-16GB-SDHC-Class-10-Memory-Card/Product.html

    Would that be OK?

    That's SD, not Micro SD...

    I'm not 100% sure what the highest MicroSD class available is...

    It may be easier to get a 16GB class 2/4 for your phone and a 16GB USB stick for movies. A USB stick is easier to carry around than a USB-MicroUSB cable :p

    I am new to Sony Ericsson x8. Need some urgent nelp regarding playing of videos.
    How can i play movies on x8? I copied some avi and mp4 files thru SE PC Companion software to sdcard location for videos. File is present, but video player says it cant be run.
    my x8 has 2gb card. movie file is about 650mb. card has free space of about 500mb.
    Should i replace my 2GB SD card with say 4GB or higher? OR is it problem with video player software that comes preloaded in my new x8?
    Pls help.
