As Mike stated, the format isn't the problem.

(If I'm happy to put a full DVD on an SDHC card and you are not, so be it.)

Playback resolution is the problem and the hardware limitations will not
allow us to use the N800 screen as it is. That's a pity, alhtough I
understand the reasons for these limitations.
