Why is my TV not recognising movie files on a USB

I have movies on a USB device and when you select the USB port, the option for movies does not appear - only photos and Music. The movie files are displayed in the music tab, however they will not play from here as they are not correct file type for music. Panasonic TV TH-L39EM5A Can you please help?

Its sounds like the size and or format my not be supported by the tv or the files were place onto the drive in a way that is incompatible with your tv set, please refer to the manual on the process on setting up a usb drive to be used with the set. Like I said its usually the location of the file, the format the file is in, the size and or the way the files were put onto the drive. but to save time page 36 of the manual here https://www.manualslib.com/manual/1142672/Panasonic-Viera-Th-L32em5a.html?page=36#manual says that that usb port is for images and audio not video so technically it won't work because the software does not support it. And no you can not make it work (there are ways to but nothing you could do unless you do computer programming and can write software to update it and thats a far stretch) so just saving you time. good luck

SOURCE: My lg lcd tv has a usb port but only recognises

You need to activate it first, here are the steps:

1. Press the enter(OK) both on the remote and the TV at the same time...hold for about 5 seconds
2. Password - 0000
3. Go to tool option 3
4. Change Jpeg to 1
5. Change Divx to SD or HD
6. Exit and try it out.
You will notice that now there are 8 inputs in the option list instead of 6 - Including a USB input.


Hope this helps

That is because the USB port is for servicing only and not for Video and audio.

What is the USB port on the tv for?


This allows you to view any media stored on a usb storage device on your television. For example, if you had photos, music, or movies stored on a USB stick or hard drive you could view the on your TV.

Keep in mind that some televisions only support certain file types and cannot open all files, so if your tv will not open a file that is probably the reason.

Hope that helps and happy viewing!

Using usb stick


First you will have either copy and pate the movie or download it to your usb drive

One of the benefits of putting files on a USB flash drive is that you can make any type of file portable.


This includes not only documents, spreadsheets and photos, but also media like video clips and movies.


If you have movies saved on your flash drive that you want to view, watching the movies directly from the USB drive is a simple process and can be achieved on almost any computer.


Connect your USB drive to the device on which you want to watch your movies.

This includes all USB-compatible computers, as well as some select television-compatible devices (like the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 or Sony Media Extender).


Launch the file explorer application on your device.

In Windows, access this utility by accessing the "Computer" application and then double-clicking the USB drive to display the files.


If you are trying to watch the movie files on a compatible television device, look for a "media," "device" or "USB input" application or button to bring up the file explorer.


Select the movie file you want to play.

In Windows, do this by double-clicking on the file.


The appropriate media-handling program should automatically launch and begin playing the movie automatically.


If you are using a television device, select the file from the list of compatible files in the device's internal explorer system.


hope this helps

I have a Coby MP620. It says to drag and drop files to the music.dir folder but I have no such folder. I have the movie, photo and text files but no music. I have no idea what to do next.


When your MP3 Player is connected to a computer, you may transfer music files to your MP3 player using your operating system's basic file management commands (i.e., copy-and-paste or drag-and-drop).Connect the Coby MP3 player to your computer through its USB adapter. Select "Open folder to view files" from the new device dialog box that pops up. If the new device dialog does not appear upon the hardware's connection, click "Start," click "My Computer" and right-click the Coby MP3 player's device icon in Windows Explorer .Click "Start," click "My Music" and open the folder containing the music you wish to transfer onto the Coby MP3 player. Drag and drop the music files or folders into the Coby MP3 player's open directory. Alternatively, you can highlight the music files or folders and click the "Copy the selected" link from the Files and Folders Tasks menu in the left column. Select the "Removable Disk" drive from the list of destinations.

Hi how do i connect my external hard drive to my ps3 and watch films


Step 1. Connect your storage device (I usually use a pen drive) to your computer

Step 2. Copy Movie to the storage device

Step 3. Eject storage device and connect to your ps3 via the USB port.

Step 4. under videos an option of your storage device should be there but do not choose X button instead press triangle for options, then select display all.

Step 6. Locate your movie and select it using X button.

Step 7. Enjoy the movie!!!! This works with MOST movie files, you may find problems watching some movie because of the way they were encoded.

Step 8. Done.

Good Luck

Hello:
Unfortunately the LG 22LD350 only has the capability to read music (MP3) and photos (JPG). To play movie files, you will have to use another device.
