If anyone has one of these players and it won't play SVCDs I just spent some time finding a solution. The DVD-Rom needs the firmware upgraded. It has nothing to do with the eprom or any other internal part. The DVD-Rom can be upgraded by using a CDR and it only takes a few seconds. If you have never seen a SVCD its a huge difference from regular VCD and is the best way to save programs to disc. At least until DVD-R becomes more affordable.

Would you care to share with us where to get the firmware upgrade?

Make sure to read the instructions carefully on the page. Its pretty straight forward. You open up your apex and see what version the firmware for your DVD-Rom is and then download the correct firmware. When flashing your drive with the CDR make sure to read the text file included with the download.
