External USB HDD Compatibility For Samsung TV

by secreto11 - 12/21/10 1:11 AM

Not sure if this is going to work but it is apparent to me that people are having issues with getting some external hard drives to work with various television, (myself included)

I thought it would be a good idea to start a compatibility chart showing which external usb HDD work with which television(s) therefore, I have created a simple chart which you can open add your details and then re upload, hopefully over time the list will grow and help people decide which HDD to buy for their television.

In order to add to the chart please follow these simple instructions:

1 The External USB HDD must function for 20 minutes or more
2.The External USB HDD must be recognised by the television
3.The External USB HDD must play one of the following MKV,AVI,JPG,MP3


I have started by adding a SANDISK SLICE 8GB FLASH DRIVE

Details SanDisk Cruzer Slice 8GB USB Flash Drive: Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

This has been fully tested on the LE40C750 Samsung 3D TV, it has played for more than a couple of hours and is fully recognised straight away. I have played MKV,AVI,MP3.
