Needs a firmware update to be able to play those. I don't know if one is available or not from SUMAS. If not, the solution - rip the dvd to a digital copy and then load it in. It'll play that!

It has nothing to do with UK version, or reformating disks as suggested by others attempting to answer my question. Sumas Customer Service e-mailed me a firmware fix that I downloaded to a flash card then inserted into the stereo USB port. The stereo now recognizes the USA Region 1 (store bought) DVD's and plays them well.

My husband was worried about security on this model and was wondering if the faceplate is detachable so that it isn't worth stealing?

"Flip down detachable panel with carry-away caddy" was said in the description, but wanted to verify that is the same thing my husband is talking about.

No! Thier website says yes but when I connect an Ipod or I-Phone to the usb port the stereo automatically switches to usb for the input but after 5 minutes it still does not show any music. Works ok with other cheaper mp3 players but rather slow to bring music up when you turn the stereo on.

Yes, it has an auxiliary input on the back so that you can use a RCA to 1/8" Jack adapter (see picture) but this does not come with it. With this you can play your iPod through your headphone jack but not through your iPod's dock.

It depends if you can disassemble your stereo housing, the original wiring still good and have done installing car stereo before. Then, it's very easy, just get your correct wiring harness and dash kit at http://www.amazon.com or carXtc.com
Match the color coded wires and follow intall guides with the dash kit. It's easy;
I installed mine in one hour.

I'm not being a jerk so please don't think I am, but if you're asking this question, please have a professional install this. I'm a 20 years experienced electronics tech and this was not a piece of cake. I did it and it wasn't tough for me, but if I didn't have all that experience - I'd have never figured it out.
