Some TV models have a USB port so that users could play videos and movies from USB on TV. You can try the following steps:

1. Connect your readable and writable USB drive to computer
2. Copy your movies to USB drive and then disconnect your USB drive from computer.
3. Connect the USB device to the Sony TV USB port. Turn on the connected USB device if necessary.
4. Press the HOME button on Sony remote controller to open the menu.
5. Enter the target USD drive.
6. Select the file you want to play back, and then press the play button to start playing movies on TV via USB drive.
It's quite easy to play movies from USB on smart TV devices.

My startup disk is full

Get an external storage device. If you don't have a lot of money, get the biggest USB flash drive you can afford; otherwise get a USB or network drive at least as big as the drive in your computer. If you can get a big drive, run Time Machine to back up the computer to it.

The following directions assume you are unable to do a full backup. If you did the backup, you may ignore the copy instructions, and just do the deletes. Next, open your (username) Downloads folder, and dump everything you don't recognize. Go to (username) Documents, and copy everything you want to keep, but don't expect to use for a while, to the flash drive. Delete all of those items after they are copied. Delete anything you are sure you don't need to keep. Repeat this process in the (username) Movies folder. Note: if you have movies stored on the laptop, this is where you will get the greatest space gain. The Pictures folder is the next one to clean out - picture files are typically large, although not nearly the size of movies. Finally, open your web browser(s) and empty the cache (for Safari, the keyboard shortcut is command-option-E, otherwise look in the application-name menu between the Apple and File menus).

It's a bit of a chore, but not as hard as cleaning out a garage, and much cheaper and easier than taking apart the computer to put in a bigger drive, especially if you have one of the new machines with a flash drive soldered to the logic board.

I have an IOMEGA Screenplay Multimedia Play &= GB. I accidentally formatted it and now i cannot play movies on my TV but only being connect to PC. Can you help me ?

when you buy a drive like the omega it comes with its own folder that contains config files and codecs...doing a complete format you have erased this so any movies played from the drive will not tell the television what codec to use, as your TV cannot use or find the codec on the hard drive it used to have. your tv will play mp4 video, so convert your files on the hard drive using "youtube downloader" (it's free off the internet) use the convert feature and select the convert filetype too ipad video mp4.....and ...select quality as original . convert one or two files and test it on your TV ...guaranteed they will play.....if so....go back and convert the rest...this time select delete original file after conversion, this just helps you not see double ups by deleting the original after conversion. guaranteed 100% works. 732973d7-ed19-4e8d-898b-1e752efd7709.jpg

Sony dcr-sx40. Restore deleted movies from the camera hard drive

The answer is YES if you take care. Do it as follows.

First things first: DO NOT take any more movies with the hard drive(within your camcorder) that you want to recover movies from. Because if you take any more files or save any data to your hard drive, you may quite possibly ruin your chances of recovery.

Then Connect the HD to your computer as it should appear as a "Removable Drive".

Next, if you are comfortable with using a PC then you can download a data recovery utility that will recover your movies with this software called Wondershare Photo Recovery (I once used this program bounded with some other software) from the following link(the program also recover MOVIES and music files):

Photo Recovery for Windows (if you are running Windows OS)
Photo Recovery for Mac (for Apple Mac OS X)

Remember - Do NOT try & write anything back to your cam(hard disk) until you can recover the files safely!

Accidentally disconnected external HD while moving files

have the files been deleted from the laptop? if not i would simply do a fresh format on the external and re migrate data. if they are then you can get software such as undelete or recover my files to restore your deleted data off of your laptop drive.

I've got a Compaq Presario PC with a 40 G hard drive. The drive is at 99% full. How can I move some files to a new laptop I have with a 320 Gig hard drive? Joe C.

Any images, pictures, movies, or other personal files can be burned to a CD or DVD which can then be transferred to your new laptop.  Upon successful transfer, you may then safely delete the files from the full hard drive on your Presario.  Since your hard drive is so full, you may need to move files in small pieces since space is required to "burn" data to CD's or DVD's.  You can perform a "Disk Cleanup" which will delete files in Recycle Bin and Temporary Internet files.  To do this, Right-click on the Hard Drive, Click on Properties and click on the Disk Cleanup button.

How do I completely reset my external hard drive

1. You need to check how much free disk space is available on your laptop.
2. You need to check what duplicated files you have on both the laptop and the external hard drive and which is the latest version.
3. You need to decide to move the latest versions of the data files from the external hard drive to the laptop. This automatically delete these from the external hard drive. The older versions on the external hard drive can be deleted.
4. Now you need to check how much data is stored on your external hard drive.
5. If the amount of data stored on the external hard drive exceeds the available disk space on the laptop, then you cannot copy these files to the laptop.
6. If you have sufficient disk space on the laptop you can copy the data from the external hard drive to the laptop. I suggest you make a folder to copy this data to it.
You can now delete all the data from the external hard drive or you can format the external hard drive to make a clean external hard drive.
