SOURCE: HP DV9700-L/side ports- which one will work for second display/TV

I do not know if this is the answer you are looking for, but I know that when I connected my S-video connection to some old crappy big screen TV, I had to set the laptop's second video output to specifically output to S-video. There were 3 or 4 different settings that had to be done. I dont remember the details, all I remember is that the 1. the second video monitor had to be set to the s-video connection. 2. the analog video setting had to be set to PAL or NTSC or whatever they are, I dont know what it is off the top of my head, then there was another setting, I dont remmeber, I think it was the setting to 'clone' the screen so that it just duplicated it. In this case, you might have to set the resolution to somthing smaller that would fit on a standard definition screen.

Sounds like you may have a corrupted drive or that the file catalogue on the drive is corrupted. Try accessing the drive on a different machine, if you can suspect the usb ports or the cable from the drive, if you still cannot gain access, the drive is corrupted. There are people who can extract the data off a corrupted drive but this is expensive so if you dont really need the data on the drive, reformat and start again..

How to set up portable drive for portable storage only on windows and mac

Hi John,

If you're only using to transport files from one computer to others, I would simply directories for each computer that will have files copied to the drive - naming them: "ToComputerA", "ToComputerB", "ToComputerB" and so on (or similar). You just need to know which computer is associated with each directory on the drive - so name them any way that helps you know which is which.

I'd copy files from any / all computers that needs to get on Computer A into the "ToComputerA" directory. Likewise, I'd copy files from any / all computers that needs to get on Computer B into the "ToComputerB" directory. I'd do this as many times as there are computers that need files. Once the files have been successfully copied to the new computer, delete the files from the portable drive as not doing so will fill the drive and also cause you to need to remember if files have already been copied yet or not.

You may need to put the files in very specific or same directories on two or more computers. You should duplicate the computer's directory structure on the portable drive in this case. That way, if you place several files that all need to go in different places / directories - you'll not have to remember where they go - as the portable drive does it for you ie: "ToComputerA/C/Users/John/ AppData/Local/..."

Make sure you're using USB 3 cables and the computers all have USB 3 ports for the quickest transfer speeds via USB.

Good luck!

How do I play movies from my external hard drive connected by USB to my MX android TV box.?

The TV should support the file system to read the directory structure of the Hard disk and also the the file type to read the video file. Try mpeg / jpeg file on a thumb drive on the same USB port.

USB port won't read

If this usb is plugged into your machine, please note, they only read up to 2 gigabytes.
Are the files in the correct format? Under the correct file?

For example, a Janome reads jef or jan files into the machine under the embf directory. the file extension is particular to the model.

Would you know the answer ?

The packard bell easynote h5315 has 3 USB 2.0 ports. The many product reviews on the internet don't say exactly which ones are high speed. Ultimately it doesn't really matter unless you are thinking of copying large files greater than 1GB then it will take longer on a low speed port.

To test this I suggest you put a file larger than 500MB on a flash drive, then plug the flash drive into the first port and copy the file back to your notebook. Take note of the time it takes. Repeat this step with ports 2 and 3. Review the results together, the port/ports that copied the file the fastest are your high speed ports. The port/ports that took longer to copy the file are low speed. If all the ports take similar times to copy the file then all 3 are low speed ports.

I have a really old computer and I put my flash drive into the where it is supposed to go, but nothing came up. What am I supposed to do?

Some Flash Drives don't come with an "autorun" installed in it, if you have a Windows 7 Operative System, it might be installing the driver for it. If it's already installed, go to your computer menu and check if the drive shows up there (In the "removable drives/devices" area).If it doesn't show up, try plugin it in another USB port, your port might be the on not working.

I own a LG Plasma 42PQ2 tv and I want to watch movies from an external hard drive through the USB port but it does not show any movie files on the hard drive.

The USB port on the TV might not have enough power to power the external hard drive. Can you try putting a movie on a USB memory stick instead, and see if that works?

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.
