Ask the Experts: Which Portable Video Player is Right For Me?

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...

Question:

I am going to buy a new portable video player, and am confused as to which one, considering the prices. I have a Canon S2IS, which has JPEG EXIF 2.2 image format, and I want to know which of the players are compatible: Zen Vision W60, Archos 504/604, Cowon A2, or Vosonic VP8360. Also, do these players work like an iPod using a Monster Cable playing through FM radio in a car?

Winding Your Cables

A TechLore "Ask the Experts" Question...

Question:

I recently tried to upgrade my audio on my satellite box by switching to an optical audio connection. However, I couldn't seem to get it to work. The cord that I used was rather long, so I wound it up with a twist tie so the cord wasn't all over my floor. In diagnosing the problem, I tried unwinding the cable and it worked fine!

My mother has a Sylvania SSC192 TV/VCR combo. I bought her a DVD player for her birthday, and I can't help her connect it over the phone. Her TV/VCR unit only has a place for the white and yellow connectors, but not the red. Plus, her remote does not have a button to switch from TV to video. Help please!!!
