4.0 out of 5 stars VTech InnoTab, 26 Sep 2011
= Durability:3.0 out of 5 stars  = Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars  = Educational:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Vtech InnoTab (Blue) (Toy)
I finally got this for my daughters 3rd birthday, although it is advised for 4 to 9 years old as like every other farther I believe my child is advanced for her age. 30 min after she opened it up she was playing with it without any help from me. There are a few games and an eBook already installed, although by signing up to Vtech I received 3 Virtual coins allowing me to purchase 3 more items of my choice.
The Downloadable Games Books are great value for money, all being 2.99 (This may change when new downloads are available).
Tips:
Make sure you have some rechargeable batteries (4*AA) but I would recommend 8 with 4 on charge whilst 4 in use.
There is a Power Supply & in car charger may be advisable to get.
Make sure you have a SD Card to put your child's Music,Photo's, downloaded games on to, the innotab will take up to 16GB and some people have said that 2GB is enough I don't agree for the extra couple of pounds get as big as you can.
You can also play Video's on this device but I have yet to find anywhere that advises what format it will accept (Waiting feedback from VTech).
Overall:
This is a fantastic toy for my Daughter and I would recommend it to anyone.

hi Sarah

Ive bought this just recently and managed to convert down into the avi format with free software off the web. Just type in Free DVD converter into Google and there should be some software around. Then simply load up your dvd, and let it read the disc, then set up the compression settings. In the manual that comes with the Innotab there is a paper booklet, in there are the settings for the compression. I think its something like 480 x 272 in wide and height, 15 frames per second and the bit rate. Audio should be mono and 22khz.
If there is an option in the converter software for the type of compression used then choose MJpeg and leave Audio on natural. Then make the .AVI file.

When you plug in the Tab to your pc via the USB cable and turn it on (making sure the memory card is already in) then it will show up as an external drive (you dont need any Innotab software fired up) and in that drive you will see folders "Video".."Music".."Pictures". Simply drag the movie you have converted into the Video folder, let it copy then switch off the Tab and unplug from the computer. Then fire up the Tab and go into Videos, your new movie should be in there. I've managed to do a few episodes of my childs favourite dvds like this on a 8gb card i got from Amazon. if you want more information let me know.
