    iRiver, Creative and Archos all have portable video players with HDD. However, you'll have to rip your DVDs to another format to play them on those players.

    Is This what you're looking for?

    Or, you could buy a less expensive PDA and install This Software (or something similar) on it. I hadn't noticed that you had a budget until reading your earlier post and the suggestion above is quite a bit more expensive.

    Happy Hunting

    I use PocketDivxEncoder to re-encode multimedia files to divx or xvid, which I can port to my Treo 600 (Palm OS). It has a bunch of different canned formats, and is pretty user friendly, and free! I use mmplayer to play the video, which is nice The demo is free, but it costs like $15 or $20 to register. This something like what you're trying to do?

    When you're compressed small enough to fit onto a PDA, the movies end up only being about 100mb/hour (or more if your pda has a higher res screen) which makes gb SD cards a very reasonable choice. I can easily fit a movie on my 256mb card with enough room left over for a couple albums, another half hour or hour-long TV show and all my other data.
