External Hard Drive compatible with portable DVD player

I am hoping to use my portable DVD player with USB drive (Seagate 500 GB) to play movies on the go. I can't figure out how to make this work. I formated the HDD into FAT32 (with 1 partition) and tried some of my home movies in a few different formats, but the DVD player still says "device not supported". The DVD player does not say what format it plays, just that it is compatible with DVD +,-,R,RW, Jpeg and MP3, so what video format would that be? Is the problem that my videos are not in the right format (tried AVI and MP4), or that my HDD has a partition, or that my HDD doesn't have an external power source, or that my DVD player is not compatible with an external hard drive? I know this is possible because my friend does it and he can't figure out why mine won't work. Can I make what I have work or do I need out buy a different HDD or a DVD player that supports divx?
