submitted by Streaming from my phone - 4 years ago

Q: Does the movie reset every time I shut my car off? For example, if my kids are 20 minutes into a movie and I stop for gas, will it start over when I turn my car back on?

submitted by Matt - 4 years ago
  • A: Hey Matt, The movie should not reset every time the unit is turned off.

Q: Has anyone out there found a working usb extension that will work with this unit? Problem is if you try to buy longer USB cords not made by RCA, they don't work, just wondering if anyone has found a solution that works. RCA support is useless. Thanks!

submitted by MB - 5 years ago
  • A: Hi, MB! Regarding your question about the RCA Dual Screen 9" Mobile DVD Player - Black (DRC79981E): The USB cable included with this DVD player is a proprietary USB cable designed by RCA. A standard USB A-to-A cable will not work because the pins on each side have been altered to prevent regular USB A-to-A cables to be used as replacements. If you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact MyTGTtech at 877-698-4883 every day, between 7am-11pm CST.

  • A: I'll answer my own question and I hope this helps everyone else having this issue. Go to the big blue store that starts with a W. In the electronics section look for the 6ft USB extension cable made by ONN, item number is 068113122858, it was about $7, it works! I had purchased a 10ft USB cable that was compatible with 3.0, 2.0, and 1.0 and it did not work. So go with the ONN for a definite win. Also, if you have an AUX jack on your car radio and want to play sound through your car speakers, purchase any AUX cable, since I was at the store, I purchased one by ONN, it was about $6. We played movies both through the speakers in the car and when we didn't want it so loud, we played the sound through the individual players. You could also use headphones.

Q: Are the two screens connected by a cord, or are they completely separate? I have one forward facing child and one rear facing child. I want to be sure both could benefit!

submitted by McDMom - 7 years ago
  • A: Yes, the screens are connected by one usb cord. It is fairly short so I am not am not sure it will be long enough for your configuration. It may be possible to purchase a longer usb cord.

    submitted byVal - 7 years ago
  • A: Hi, McDMom! Regarding your question about the RCA Dual Screen 9" Mobile DVD Player - Black (DRC79981E): These are 2 separate monitors that are connected via 1 usb cord with straps to put on the back of a head rest, one for driver side and one for passenger side.

Loved this was amazing purchase especially for the price. It has a awesome picture great sound. For 65.00 dollars really it it awesome. We couldn't be happier. It has a remote control. Came with bonus free DVDs. Great customer service. My order was ready in less than 10 hours after submitting online. Very satisfied and already recommend to others. It was life saver to 3 kids in car trip. Love that we can put in any car and take out. Would purchase again. This also isn't our first time getting a DVD player for a car so we know a good one from bad ones. So yes yes on this one!!!

Tiffany K - 5 years ago, Verified purchaser
The quality of the DVD player is fine - works well - doesn't skip, etc. BUT, in order to use both screens, you will need to purchase a USB extender. The USB cord that is provided, is literally 2-3 ft long, and won't connect between two average head rests. Plan to test out the cord provided prior to jumping in the car, or you'll be stuck with only one screen. Sound is good - and everything works well - if you purchase this additional cord. Frustrating that the company would not think to provide a 4-6 ft cord.

hommesarah - 6 years ago, Verified purchaser
I never take the time to submit a review on a product, but I am going out of my way to post how horrible this product is. Our first set broke fully after a couple months of inconsistent functionality, despite having been very carefully handled. I very foolishly bought the same set, because they are all Target carries and I had seven kids on a 7 Hour Car Drive and thought I would risk it. Definitely not a good move. Brand new DVDs that work in any other player will not play in the DVD player, and of course the packaging and receipt have long since been tossed in the gas station garbage. If I could give this negative stars highway. Close to $250 down the drain between the two sets.

The machine did not run when upright on the back of the seat. Also, I misunderstood and thought that 2 different movies could be played. I returned it since that will not work for my two children aged 12 and 13.

Have bought 2 sets of these in last year. 1st set lasted about 6 months. 2nd set 3 months. Only used when we had grandkids which wasn't often. Both sets would play couple minutes then start the movie over. Would not recommend. I have tried contacting RCA support but there is no chat available and no contact information to discuss the problem.

dl - 6 years ago, Verified purchaser
We purchased this item online for our van to keep the kids occupied on road trips. We just received it this week and our first attempt at using it just yesterday was a complete fail. Only the main tv screen with the dvd in it would play. The secondary tv screen only had sound and we could not get it to have the video feed...just the audio. So that doesn’t fit our needs with the 3 kiddos in the back. I saw the other reviews and figured maybe they just had some bad luck with this particular player. But in reality this rca player is actually a big waste of money. As soon as we get back it is going to be returned to target. :(

Overall it's a great buy. The only thing I would like is if I could control the volume on each TV separately. Whatever volume the main TV is on is what the 2nd one is.
