External Hard drive files will not show up on dvd player

I have a dvd player that supports my external 320 G hard drive. I have been watching movies on it recently, and all of a sudden my a huge chunk of my files stopped showing up. They were there the last time I played one and I have not hooked it up to my laptop or anything.

Also, how does one make it to when browsing on the dvd menu that the files are alphabetical instead of showing up as most recently added last on the list?

How do I transfer recorded movies to a external hard drive?


That depends. What device did you use to record these movies? If you recorded a movie using a DVD recorder, connect your external hard drive to a PC device which has a DVD rom. Go into the files, copy and past the file to your external drive.

How does the usb work (for reading movie clips from an external hdd?) can't get it to work.


When you go to the File Explorer ( an icon on the lower bar showing a set of FileFolders inside of a support holder (yellow folders/ with a blue holder Icon) Left click on the ICO and all of the attached devices will show up on the desktop screen. If the external hard drive is showing up (could be Drive G or H for example) it is connected, however if the attached drive was not formatted the drive will not open for business. New attached drives need to be partitioned and formatted prior to use.

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.

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?

Buffalo 500gb external hard drive not working on dvd player


Many DVD players cannot play just any video files. You can look online at the website for your DVD manufacturer and see if there is a codec pack for your DVD player. If you install a codec pack on your DVD player then you should be able to watch more video formats. Look for one that can do avi, mpeg, mp4, etc files
please rate my solution!

External Hard Drive


If you plan to store movies on the HD, better buying a 1TB hard drive. WD Mybook is one of the best external HD.

To rip and store DVD movies into the hard disk you will need a specific software, like the ones below.

DVD Converter - convert DVD video to AVI/MPEG/DIVX files

Freeware converts DVD AVI MPEG WMV RM to MP3 or iPod Video

Movie2x Freeware DVD Converter Download

DVDx (freeware from labDV)

Playing movies from external hard drive


Hi rox09
Well you can rip your DVD to any external drive using and third party DVD ripping software ,once you do that you will get a AVI,MPEG and any common fomats your DVD player supports

Inorder to play those files in your DVD player ,you need the check whether your DVD has a USB input port or else if you laptop or computer has a S-video out put and your TV has S-Video input ;you can play directly from your laptop/computer to the TV using a S-video Cable which is available in any Computer shop.
I hope this helps
