    Question TV not recognizing a USB hard drive

    Hi,

    I recently bought the 42PFL3188H LED TV. Yesterday I tried connecting my USB hard drives to it, to watch content, but the TV did not recognize them. It said there was nothing connected via USB. What am I doing wrong?


    Thanks,
    Noaya.

    Hi Noaya,

    There is a few specifications that need to be fulfilled to ensure successful playback from a USB device.

    1.
    The hard drive needs to be USB 2.0 minimium and be formatted in FAT, FAT32 or NTFS.

    2.
    The hard drive cannot consume more than 500mA of power unless it has it's own power supply.

    3.
    The content needs to be in a supported format. Please see page 41 of the user manual for more information about supported file formats:

    Best regards,
