    All of the versions of Mplayer I have freeze, Im now on 0.76 and its freezing and sometimes just stopping playing and going back to the selection screen.

    I installed the USB2 cios thing onto various number (222,249etc) with no luck...

    no you just choose which IOS to install it with not to

    could just be that the usb drive hasn't got a fast enough access rate and can't read the files fast enough to keep the buffer filled have you tried a different usb drive/flash drive

    not sure what to say. 0.75 froze constantly for me.

    0.76 dumped 5 times in a row before letting me in, but somehow has been absolutely crash free ever since.


    try hermes v4 cios38+60 as ios202
