Do you mean "Is there a portable DVD player that will play Divx files with constant bit rate audio tracks?"

I really don't think Divx and CBR are related.

If there were such a dvd player, that would be hella pimptified.

Well, some DVD players will play zipped folders of images, if you mean basically CBR as RAR renamed, like CBZ is ZIP renamed. I don't know if RAR is supported, though.

Sounds unlikely.

There are portable DVD players that read .JPEG (and maybe some other) image files though.

A .cbr file is a big bunch of image files in an archive. What you might be able to do is extract the images, copy them to a disk and view them on a portable DVD player that way.

RAR will be unlikely to be supported as it is covered by more stringent licensing than ZIP.

You could look into buying a tablet pc and reading .cbr/.cbz from an actual Comic Book Viewer app.

It was written using Borland C++ Builder 5.0 and has been tested under Windows 98, NT 4, 2000 and XP Tablet.

You might be able to unzip/unrar each comic file into a directory and navigate it like that. Or you may need to convert them into a photocd format that your player reads.
