Can someone please tell me how I can easily convert this player into a watchable format or tell me what my sisters need to do with the understanding that we are all relative noobs? Thanks in advance for the help.
After you transfer the file to your PC, just rename the extension of the file on your computer to .3gp This should open up the movie in Quicktime. I had the same problem as you but this works for me. HTH
