    My TV is the same you CAN use both memory stick and hard drive "portable" so you are correct and you need to format the drive as "FAT32" so the TV see's it and im looking for format now think its DIV-X not sure

Movies stored on a hard drive are not in a format that can be readily used by a TV. You need something to read the movie file, usually a laptop computer or a DVR of some type. Good luck.

SOURCE: I have the philips 120hz and some movies are smooth, others jump

I would advise knocking down the resolution. Try and use software, like red kawa, to convert a few of your movies to different formats till you find a decent one. A widely accepted codec setup is Divx/XVid (both are the same) and MP3 sound.

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?

Can I play movies from an external portable hard drive through an ONIX 10.1 tablet? It has a Micro USB port, can I just get an adapter?


Hi,
Probably not as the tablet doesn't have enough power to run an external hard drive, copy the files either directly onto the tablet or memory card (MicroSD) via computer.
It's possible to use and USB Flash Drive via an OTG Cable / adapter if that's what you have, but if the tablet is full or not enough storage space get a Micro SD Memory card.

Wharfedale DVD1100 PLayer does not detect USB Hard drive


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.

How to plug harddrive into USB and watch movies


What kind of hard drive do you have? If it doesn't have a USB end, then you need a special cable to do it. Depends on what kind of hard drive you have, SATA - USB or IDE - USB. And not all TV with USB slot supports movies through USB, some models supports only music/pictures. So make sure your TV supports movies through USB too.

I have a philips tv model number 32 pfl 3805h/12 and was wondering if i can watch movies from an external hard drive? what format does the hard drive need to be?


Your TV does not have a USB port so you cannot connect an external HDD and stream movies on to the TV. But you can buy a HDD based media player which has the necessary output sockets as well as all kinds of decoders built in to stream movies on to your TV.

this will not work by it self you will either need to buy a computer with media software that will support your hard drive or a DVR that will support you hard drive.
the hard drive connected to the device you have tried to connect to are not smart devices they will not support a stand alone external drive even though there is a usb port.

Could very well be that the external hard drive is drawing more power than what the player can deliver - it is enough for a usb stick but not for the external drive. Now if you use an external drive that is self powered I am sure there will be no issue.

1. The TV and drive may not be compatible with each other. 2. The formatting of the drive could be the problem. The USB memory stick would be formatted as FAT32, but the Iomega drive would have been formatted as NTFS. Maybe the TV can only read drives formatted as FAT32 and not NTFS.

I do not know if the 1 Tb external hard will work on the USB ports on the LCD TVs.
What do you want to store on the 1 Tb USB hard drive and display on the LCD TVs?
Most LCD TVs can access USB memory sticks and display DVI movies (if supported by the TV), photos etc. that are stored on these USB memory sticks.
Try inserting an USB hard drive (borrow one if necessary, can be any capacity) into the USB port to see if it works before you decide to purchase a 1 Tb USB hard drive.
My suggestion would be to purchase a 1 Tb USB memory stick. This would out perform an external USB hard drive.
