There's a port of EDoom for the P800/P900 as well, so you can run Doom on that too. If you feel really brave then you can try EMame, but I never found it to be that good.

Ive had doom running on it but without the keys can be a bit tricky to control pretty cool though

Small utility called dvd to PPC or something like that you can download a demo but only allows 5 mins or soe to be compressed. http://www.handango.com/PlatformProd...roductId=94375 for $24.99 for the full registered version its worth its weight in gold.

You can always convert DVD movies to DivX files which are smaller. But, be aware that decrypting commercial DVDs might be illegal, even if it's for your own personal use.

Dont think you could convert them that small could you? I am no legal buff or anything but I was under the impression that you can make a personal backup of any software/ title you own????

Could always be wrong

In the UK, I think you are fine to make backups of software. It's just DVDs, which might be a problem in the US at least. From a moral point of view making backups or converting a file so that you can use it on a different type of player is ok, in my book.

Hypathetically, you could get on a plane in the UK with a movie on your PDA and you aren't breaking any law, but when you get off the plane in the US you are. LOL

AFAIK, it isn't illegal for you to make a backup copy of your DVD. It is illegal for someone to provide tools that allow you to rip the DVD to some other medium, though.

That seems to be what they are saying here:

But how can they stop this in other countries? Seems a bit pointless.
