You need to activate it first, here are the steps:

1. Press the enter(OK) both on the remote and the TV at the same time...hold for about 5 seconds
2. Password - 0000
3. Go to tool option 3
4. Change Jpeg to 1
5. Change Divx to SD or HD
6. Exit and try it out.
You will notice that now there are 8 inputs in the option list instead of 6 - Including a USB input.


Hope this helps

I cant play movies using my USB drive on my Samsung LCD tv model LA40D503F7R. Movies option on screen is not displaying, only music and pictures option is displaying


Nope, you certainly can't. The TV can only show still photos or play music. It's not capable of playing videos.

The manual is here:
http://www.samsung.com/ae/support/model/LA40D503F7RXZN
or
2011 LA40D503F7R 40 Inch Full HD LCD TV LA40D503F7RXZN Support SAMSUNG Gulf
See pages 16 and 17.

Burn your movies to DVD or Blu-Ray and you can plug a player into the TV, also described in the manual.

My lg lcd tv 32CS410 has an usb port but only recognises photo and music. I would like to be able to play movies using the usb. Is this possible and if so how??


That's not possible as the TV would need software to decode and play the video. That model of LG TV isn't listed as being a "smart" tv that can play video files. You may have to look into a separate box that can play movie files like a Roku or an AppleTV

Hello:
Unfortunately the LG 22LD350 only has the capability to read music (MP3) and photos (JPG). To play movie files, you will have to use another device.
