  1. walmart sells velocity micro cruz ereader 7 in flat touch screen movies apps music book for only 109 bucks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. I guess my Samsung Galaxy TAb won’t play mkv video files. It also won’t play certain audio tracks from some XVID avi movies I have. I read about this issue a bit with people who owned Archos 70. I guess I may to have to make a purchase to play certain media files. Any experience with this issue?

    • I can’t say much when it comes to video files; I mostly stream video or use DVD Shrink + Handbrake. Will those files work with other media player apps on the Galaxy Tab?

  3. I am going to use AVS converter on these files. I assume since I am starting with a 720p video file which is 1280×720, I can convert it to an mp4 file that has the same resolution as my Galaxy tab which is 1024×600. I am going to leave all the other settings as default since I don’t know what they mean anyway.

  4. Well, apparently when I installed the driver it all installed an application similar to iTunes that allows the user to convert to a format presumably compatible with the Tab. That will probably do the job.

  5. I want to share a great site that I found for all Pandigital accessories. It has all the accessories that you could ever need for your Pandigital products, such as game cards, cases, carrying bags, et cetera. You name it and they have it. The prices are great too. I just love it for Pandigital accessories. Here’s the link:
