    do you have the very latest dashboard update m8? if so then you should be able to select your storage device form the dashboard and you should be able to scan through all the files until you get to the downloaded films.

    if you dont have the latest update you can download from or just put in a new game and it should update auto.

To be able to play movies stored on a USB device (it doesn´t matter if it's a usb pen, a usb hard drive, etc), you will need two things:

1.- The device where you want to play the movies must support the USB device that you're using (not all USBs are the same, and they can be formatted differently, too). So if when you plug it in, the TV doesn´t recognize it, use a different USB device.

2.- The movies that you put on the USB device must be palyable by your device. ie: your TV, BluRay, etc must be able to decode and play the movie format, and this can be AVI, DIVX, XVID, H624, QT, MKV, etc. Even if your device reproduces DIVX movies, if the movie is encoded in a weird format, it won't be playable. The fastest way to know is trial and error.

Need help!

Just connect this drive to any of the USB ports in your computer. Now open the folder where you have the movies stored. Right click the movie file. Take the Send To option. In that list you must be able to see the drive you connected to the computer. Just click on that drive. The movie gets copied.

Let me know if you need more help.
