I have a Sony 3DTV (model: KDL47W800A). I have tried many flash and external drives to connect to the TV, but it doesn’t detect them. I have 3D movies copied to my 1TB external drive but I can’t seem to play them – what can I do?

    Arun,

    I note that the manual Rajaa refers to states (http://www.sony-asia.com/microsite/bravia_i-manuals/FY13/EXW800/GA_AU/c_usbrec_aus_nz_set.html) that you can use the TV to record programs. It also explains (http://www.sony-asia.com/microsite/bravia_i-manuals/FY13/EXW800/GA_AU/usb_europe_ga_twn.html) how to view photos and videos recorded elsewhere and lists the supported formats and codecs, as well as a number of limitations on what kind of USB device you can use. Have you checked these pages?

    is the hard drive format FAT32?.
    perhaps it is not receiving the necesary amount of power

    Have you tried to copy the 3D movie into a pendrive and simply plug it in to the USB port in the TV? Then you can access the movie in the pen drive.
