I just bought myself a new high capacity (1TB) 2,5" USB drive (Hitachi).
My idea was to hook it up to my BDP5200/12 player.

Unfortunately the formatted disk was NTFS which is mostly used in today's PC's.
Another format called Exfat is also not supported by the Phips player
The Philips player supports only FAT16 and FAT32 formatted harddisks.

Can I expect Philips to update by software the USB driver in that it supports NTFS?

This would be a very welcome feature to an already outstanding player.

NTFS is supported, but at least with the latest 1.55 firmware there is a problem with NTFS hdd:s when there is a disc in the drive.
Philips is aware of this.

Remove disc from the player and try again.

Hi Luth,

Thanks for quick response!
The inserted disk was the problem. When removed the files on the hdd were instantly recognised.

Suggestion: Update the description of the Philips player that is now supports NTFS with the new firmware level (Without a disk inserted).
Also include in the 1.55 software release notes that NTFS is supported.

You made me very happy!
