You want to make sure you are ripping to avi DIVX or XVID. If you've already got the files ripped, the key is to make sure the encoding is set to DIVX. That's all I had to do. Here's a link to where i figured it out. Switching the format with the little program at the link takes less that a couple of seconds. You also need to make sure you're using a FAT32 formatted USB drive (which is the format they usually come in). I've got a 32gb loaded with all of the kids shows and it's flawless.
^ he's pretty much got it nailed. Having the right format for the drive and the right file type for the videos is both key to getting it to read and play.
So quick question- are you able to play DVD on one passenger monitor and play from USB on the second monitor?

You sure can!

Divx is a pretty HD formart wouldnt the files be huge?

Actually, DIVX is just a video codec, and it can be in SD or HD.
The JX cannot display HD video though. The maximum resolution for the DIVX movies should be 720x480.
Are you able to get the video streamed via USB to fill the rear screens? On my JX it forms a letterbox with what seems to be the 4:3 center area of the screen. You can stretch and fill this area but it still will not fill into the bars on the left and right side of the screen. The video is DIVX avi and works fine playing on other devices. Thanks in advance for any help or successes you have found.

Have you tried using a software like "Mediainfo" to check your video files?
Under the display aspect ratio in the mediainfo, is it set correctly at 16:9?
Has anyone tried DivX software to burn videos? I am pretty much a newbie when it comes to burning videos on the flash drive. I plan to buy a 32 GB one. Quick question - even though I read that I need to use FAT32 - can burn this using mac?
Bought a couple of iPods from ebay and the amazon basics ipod component cable. I found its faster to rip to using handbrake than using the divx converter I bought from divx.com.
Problems I found with the USB stick method :
1. The interface was too slow. The files took too long to load.
2. It wasn't possible to browse for the next song using the USB memory stick method. The song would jump to the next selection. The iPod browsing is really good. Makes me think, Infiniti designed the system to be used with an iPod.
3. People can control the videos from the ipod (like subtitles, fast forward, change letter boxing, etc).

So you can play video from an iPad/iPod using the USB cable or do you have to use the composite cable?

You'll have to use the composite cable. With this setup, the video controls are through the ipod, not the car.

Thanks! I will have to order one

I have video working on USB no issue, but cannot get one screen to show a DVD and the other to show video from the USB. They both either show DVD or USB. I can get to the setup screen that allows you to adjust the sources for each screen, but for whatever reason as soon as a choose DVD or USB for a given display it changes both... any help?

I am having the same issue, haven't been able to figure out how to get one to play DVD and other to play USB.
Yes I did find that screen... If I change the left (either way) to USB, when I move over to the right and choose DVD, it will automatically change the left to match DVD - and vice versa. If I set the left to USB, and the right to AUX, then no issue - it will leave them set to different inputs, but it seems to not be possible to set one side to USB and the other to DVD.
