Will backed up DVDs on a hard drive connected to this through USB - will it play them?

According to that manual subway linked to:

USB memory sticks (USB)
The DVD player supports USB memory sticks 1.1 and 2.0 up to a capacity of 512 MB.

thats unfortunate,
i bought one 2 years ago that supported a 250gig drive plugged in.

the Lidl blurb is fairly blatant about it supporting external HDD (though it does also say laptop which is nonsense)

might see if I can pick one up and try it out - its only 50 lids after all.

EDIT - the previous Silvercrest player sold by Lidl said the same thing (512k max) in the manual but plenty of boardsheads managed to get it working with their HDD
