    I would have thought that an RNS-E would have played DVD’s but when iv tried to play a dvd film on it it just says unknown files
    Im sure when I was looking for my car that some of the adverts showed the sat nav screen playing a film
    And why wont it play mp3 dvds
    The cheep and nasty one I fitted to my Scooby played every thing I put in it

    Never has and never will play DVD's

    It will play MP3 CD's, but not DVD.

    This is Audi we are talking about...

    The laser in the unit was not designed to read anything other than CDs and the Navigation disks!

    Yes it’s Audi it’s in my b6 s4
    After waiting so long to get an s4 I must admit Im a little disappointed in the RNS-E sat nav I did think it would have done more
    It won’t play DVDs of any sort
    Is has a 400 song limit per drive
    No input for additional inputs like a DVD drive all though the slot behind the screen dose say DVD drive on it why when its not
    The cd changer in the glove box only holds 6 cds only 4 of them work
    Just generally not overwhelmed with it
    I would have been better getting just a standard head unit and fitting a screen my self like in my Scooby
    The little one could have watched films whilst on a journey
    Sat nav would have been easier to use
    Dvd mp3 with no limit to song tracks
    The list goes on

    Im not asking if it is Audi...

    Im saying why would Audi give you that nice lil feature when they make you pay nerli 100 bucks for interior lights. lol.

    There are ways around it tho!!

    Get yourself an AV input/Tv in motion unit for your RNS-E from Kufatec. Then buy yourself an 12v DVD player to plug in. Bosh... Your RNS will now play DVDs. You could also treat yourself to an Alpine KCE-425i. This will give you full ipod function and allows you to watch your ipod videos on there as well!!
