I just got it today and have tried to verify the claims of other reviewers .
No go on most formats .
It plays original dvds and cds and plays mp3s and jpegs .
However , it does not play windows media and i can not get it to play any of my divx rips .
I guess that i can not complain since it does not actually claim to play vcd / svcd formats , but others say they can .
Also , it was only $ 39.99 ( after rebate ) with free shipping and no tax so overall it is a decent player .
Good quality video .
