    I keep getting the following message up when i try and play a movie on the NDS

    HORIZONTAL SIZES OTHER THAN 256 PIXELS BECAME UNSUPPORTED

    And that is it - i cant watch the movie due to this message.

    I have converted the movies to DPG format using BatchDPG but i keep getting the same message, not sure if i have the wrong settings on batchDPG or not.

    Has anyone had this problem or know how i can fix it.

    Reconvert using BatchDPG, but force it to use a width of 256. Either that or just grab the Moonshell.nds file for v1.6, which does support video files with widths other than 256. That's the solution I used rather than reconverting my video files.

    I use DPGTools for my movies. It comes with Moonshell. Try converting to .avi first and then converting it. Make sure it is not downloaded from Bittorrent because those usually don't work.
