Why won’t my media player play files from my Hitachi hard drive?

I bought a DVP-SR320, a Sony branded DVD media player. But I can’t play files off my Hitachi external hard drive when I try to connect to it. What’s wrong?

    does it detect the list of files and the hard drive ?
    which are the file format that you want to play ?
    asking this, because if it shows the list of files, but cant play, then there is some hope, if it can not read anything. then it is difficult. also you need fat file format of hard disk.

    Hello, also make sure that the files you are trying to play are compatible with your player.  According to the specs in the following link, that player is able to play the following formats from USB:

    MP3 (USB) - Yes
    JPEG (USB) - Yes
    AAC (USB) - Yes
    WMA (USB) - Yes
    LPCM (USB) - Yes
    MPEG-1 (USB) - Yes
    Simple MPEG-4 (USB) - Yes

    Hi Shawn,

    Your Hiatchi hard drive must be running the FAT32 file system in order for it to work.
