Shows that DivX and Xvid are not supported, but it seems that NTFS isn't either, perhaps that is why you can see the likely to be FAT32 USB flashdrive, but not the likely to be NTFS external drive?

I have found  what I believe to be a  solution to displaying Jpegs via the Usb port.


I created a folder titled DCIM on my memory stick and created a subfolder titled 100MSDCF in which i placed my jpegs the TV would automatically recognize the stick and play the jpegs in a slide show.

(This is the path that I believe Sony use to store images on their cameras)

To date I have been able to display any jpeg no matter what the size so I hope this helps someone as I had been looking for a solution for 18 months
