It's unlikely that you're doing something wrong. Did you buy this DVD player as one that is supposed to support connecting hard drives? If not, then the player probably doesn't support connecting a hard drive.

Hi.

On order to make an external hard drive readable from a dvd player you need to reformat the hard drive to fat32 format. Most DVD players are only able to read drives formatted in the FAT32 system,

To format the ext hard drive to Fat32 you will need to connect it to your computer first to carry out the formatting.

1) Click "Start" then "Run"

2) Type "CMD" into the text box, then press "Enter."

3) Type "Format /FS:FAT32 X:" into the command prompt, replacing the letter "X" with the actual drive letter of your USB hard drive. If you do not know the drive letter of your hard drive, open "My Computer" and look under "Devices with removable storage." BE SURE YOU HAVE SELECTED THE CORRECT DRIVE LETTER TO FORMAT. Then press "Enter".

4) Press "Y" when you have identified the correct drive and you are ready to format the hard drive. All data present on the drive will be erased once it has been formatted. The drive will now be formatted to FAT 32

5) Load the films onto the USB hard drive. Be aware FAT32 file system cannot support files larger than four gigabytes.

6) Connect the ext hard drive to your DVD player via usb and select "USB Device" or it may be labelled as external device. Your DVD player should recognise the device and play the films.

Download the GParted Live utility and the HP USB Format Tool via the links in Resources.

http://www.majorgeeks.com/downloadget.php?id=5757&file=15&evp=fb0a8fee133295405b5af3205e8d2424

Extract the files from the GParted Live zip file. Select the USB stick as the destination.


Open a file browser and navigate to the USB stick. Select "utils" > "win32" > "makeboot.bat." Double click on "makeboot.bat." Enter "Y" when prompted.


Power off your computer leaving the USB stick inserted.


Connect your portable hard drive to another USB port.

Power on the computer and quickly press "F8" through "F12" to access your boot menu.


Check your computer or motherboard manual for the exact keystroke.

Select the USB stick as your boot source and press "Enter." Allow the Gparted GUI to start.


Select the external portable hard disk drive. Click "Partition" on the menu bar.

Hover over "Format to" and select "NTSF."


If you are unable to create or format the partition, select delete partition.

Select the source containing your OS installer and press "Enter."

Enter your personalization and registration information if required.


When prompted, specify the portable hard drive as the install directory.

the USB port in the dvd player is to update it by the manufacturer. Unless the USB port is in the front then try going into the dvd players menu and have it search for devices, also make the content easy to find for dvd player, like have a VIDEO folder and put the media in there.

I am trying to view pictures and videos as well as music form my seagate 250gb expansion portable hard drive, through my dvd player via usb port. it reads "no data" is there anything that i can do to...


Most probably your harddrive is formatted using NTFS file system, while your DVD player only understands FAT32 filesystem.
Check the format of your drive by hooking it up to a computer and opening it's properties. And check your DVD player's specifications regarding USB support in it's manual or online, on manufacturer's website support section.
If indeed the filesystem type is the problem, you can do a couple of things:
1) Purchase a Flash pendrive of suitable capacity (these are FAT32 usually) and use it for viewing pictures & videos on your DVD player,
2) Move everything temporarily from your external hard disk to your computer's disk and re-format your external drive using FAT32 filesystem. Note, that FAT32 has some disadvantages, like a 2GB file size limit. And also remember, that formatting the drive wipes everything from it, so be sure to copy all stuff to your computer's internal drive first!
3) Check the possibility of connecting your PC to the TV directly and forget about the DVD player for viewing pictures and videos.

I just bought an Aveis 1080p upconverting DVD player and when i put my USB device in it doesn't it says unsupported. What kind of USB device should I get


USB stick has to be formated in FAT32 file system.
Some players will only play sticks up to 2 Gigs, some may recognize and play video files even from external hard drives.
Aveis is a no name player, so who knows if it'll play anything besides MP3 and JPG.

I'd go with a Pioneer or Coby (both at Best Buy); both play DivX format from sticks and external hard drives; no MPEG-4 or MKV files though, which is a bummer (did not find any player under $100 that does.)
I tried them both (also tried Philips and Toshiba), but the Pioneer had far the best picture and sound amongst all of them. Coby was OK, but the display broke.

Connecting an External Portable Hard Drive?


You are connecting it to a car DVD player, but how many types of music format is it capable of playing? It should be in the Manual, however it will be able to play mp3. *.flac, *.wmv, *.wav, *.cda. But how ere you going to power your external hard disk? If it has provision for use of 12V DC voltage, same as that of the car. After its powered, only then will it work, but the USB connector will provide the output into the DVD players USB slot(just like attaching a flas drive like pen drive which uses the USB slot for power too....sodeep
