SOURCE: Unit does not recognize usb flash drive.

Use a 2GB or less compatible memory card - Sandisk is the best bet.

Why can't my Panasonic DVD recorder read my portable harddrive? I want the DVD record to read the harddrive?

hi anonymous, it may well be that you need to change settings on your DVD Recorder and/or on your TV. On my LG 42" TV I need to select the input mode ie. Movie, USB, music etc, as necessary. Maybe your DVD Recorder or TV can't handle the file format on you Portable Drive, check the manufacturer specs.

Check your USB memory to make sure that it comply with the points below:
1) USB standard USB 2.0 full speed
2) Media file format support MP3 (.mp3) WMA (.wma) JPEG (.jpg) (.jpeg) MPEG4 (.asf)
3) USB device file system FAT12, FAT16, FAT32
4) USB Port power Max. 500 mA

As you can see
1) You should format your USB in windows format (FAT system)
2) The files on your USB should be those mentioned above on point 2.
3) 2.5" hard drives most likely do not work without an external power supply.

you can download the manual from HERE !

Sharp BD HP21 Won't recognize USB drives

You have to make sure the files, you downloaded to your USB stick, are not in folders. Mine worked after this. I am still having problems with pixelation on newish discs. I read somewhere that if I plugged a USB thumb drive into the Sharp HP21 it will aid the processing and work better. Does anyone know if this is true as I often get poor picture quality on what looks clean LoveFilm BR discs. (No problems with standard DVDs.)

Disc won't eject, stays in "RECOVER" mode

look on the face of the machine, near the dvd slot. what you are looking for is a tiny hole, the size of a pencil lead. some players, not all, have this manual release. If you are fortunate enough to have one of these little holes straighten out a small paper clip and use it as a wire to insert in the hole and release your dvd.

I have the Kenwood DDX512 and I cant get it to play music from a USB drive.

You will find the latest firmware listed there, 2.4.0. The unit ships with 1.0.0 which did the same thing for me not playing anything or even recognizing the USB device.

Download the file, unzip it and burn the included file, k08v5_update_78ca9780_2.4.0.ruf , to a cd. Put the cd in the drive while its running and it will automatically update your system. Make sure the vehicle is running at the time to ensure you have adequate power ... if it shuts down in the middle of it you'll brick the system.

It will restart, eject the cd and thats it. Plug in your USB device and it starts playing automatically.

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.
