Anyone have a pioneer AVH series head unit? I need video converting help.

I have some DVDs I was looking at converting on a USB to watch on the head unit ( or maybe an external HD ) What I was wondering is what format/program did you use to convert your dvds? What are you using for holding your library? USB drive, USB HD etc. I have the AVH-x4500bt

i don't have dvd playback on my pioneer but i run a 40gig usb hard drive for music on it.
it formatted in fat32(windows xp+ default is ntfs)

if i did it again i would run a usb flash drive, smaller and less prone to breakage, the last 6 years or so have been abusive to my 2.5" laptop hard drive between the temperature changes a vehicle and the shock of it bouncing in the glove box. there are less mechanical parts in a usb flash drive.
there are days my hard drive doesn't want to boot either due to cold or heat.

btw my pioneer is a old deh-4000

I'm currently using a 8 GB thumb drive, works great. I just have the USB cord on top of my CB and just leave it plugged in. And the Mixtraxx does a good job.

It can read Divx, wmv, and mp4 so pretty much any way you compress a movie the avh can read it from a usb drive or hard drive. Currently I'm using Aiseesoft to compress movies down to a more manageable size, it works ok but I'm always looking for better software.
