I have an older Samsung HT-Z320 Home Theater, and it won’t play videos on TV from a 30 GB USB drive.
I use a USB drive to play movies in Xvid Format. It works fine with 2 USB 2.0 gigabyte drives I use regularly. I recently purchased a 30 gigabyte USB 3.0 drive and the titles are recognized on the display but then it just flashes “Reading”.
Is 30 gigs is too much for the system? USB 3.0 is backwards compatible so it should read the avi file, albeit at a USB 2.0 speed. I have tried partitioning the drive to 2 gigabytes but got the same result. I know the system is on its last legs (DVD failed last year) but I can’t purchase a new one yet. I would appreciate any ideas… I’m stumped!
