    There are some .avi files on a usb flash drive that I want to play on a dvd-player. The dvd-player does play the .avi files (divx) when they are put on a dvd. I want the .avi files to be played directly from an usb flash drive. The dvd-player does not have a usb port, so is there some cable I could use or how to do this?

    Nope, not for under the cost of a new dvd player.
    The closest thing that you could do it buy another dvd player, or if it has a sd card slot, I suppose you could try transferring the movies from the usb drive to the sd card and then stick the sd card in.

    You need an SD card reader. You put the card in the reader and connect the reader to a USB port.
