Samsung Devices: Blu-Ray, TV, Phone, Tablet
Hard Drive: 500 GB in wall-socket-powered external enclosure, formatted as extFAT
I want to play videos on my Samsung devices. The videos are stored as ISO files, but I can convert them to Video_TS folder, VOB files, if necessary. I have them stored on a 500GB drive that is mounted in an external enclosure. The hard drive has been formatted as extFAT.
When I connect the USB cable from the external drive to the Blu-Ray, it is not recognized. The Blu-Ray says that there is NO USB device connected. However, when I connect a thumb flash drive to the Blu-Ray, it is recognized and I can view the photos on it.
Please help me figure out how to connect the external hard drive to the USB input of the Blu-Ray device (or any of my other Samsung devices).
