Two days ago, I bought a 200 GB Samsung hard disk drive and an external casing at the Yongsan Electronics Mall. I have a 40 GB hard disk currently installed on our computer plus my husband’s 10 GB HDD. We decided to buy an external HDD to accomodate all the personal videos I’ve been trying to convert to digital version.
We had the hard disk for 106,000 KRW and paid 40,000 KRW for the LG aluminum casing. So far, both are doing fine. 😀
It felt so liberating knowing that you have a lot of space to store your files. I formatted my main HDD and spent hours re-installing the programs. Now, our computer runs like new.
One of the programs that I first installed is the GOM Player. It’s an all media player similar just like the popular Windows Media Player but less the headache. It has all the codecs you’ll ever need (so no need to download them individually), with English menu, subtitle viewer, frame capture and best of all it’s freeware!
My husband had it on his HDD but I never really used it before since I thought it was just Korean. Surprisingly, you can choose between a Korean or an English installation. It plays almost all formats including 3gp and other formats I’m not familiar with.
Give it a try by visiting this download page.
