The player comes with the maximum amount of system memory it supports, i.e. 64 megabytes, in two DDR SDRAM chips from Hynix (HY5DU561622ETP, 16Mb x 16bit).
The player’s firmware is stored in an 8MB M29W640FB flash memory chip from STMicroelectronics.
The player’s LAN port is based on the RTL8100CL network controller manufactured by Realtek. This Fast Ethernet controller is connected to the player’s main processor via a PCI bus.
The processor does not incorporate a SATA controller, so the hard disk is connected to it via a PATA-SATA bridge based on an 88SA8040 chip from Marvell.
Both of the player’s USB ports are based on a VT6212L host-controller from VIA. This controller supports four USB 2.0 ports, but only two are implemented in the player.
The USB port for connecting to a PC must be based on a PL-2507 chip from Prolific which is in fact a USB-PATA bridge. This explains why the player is identified as an external HDD when connected to a PC.
