Brief function introduction
With the digital multimedia playing function, this unit can recognize the standard USB 1.1 and USB 2.0 devices, including hard disks and USB flash drives. You can use this unit to browse photos, listen to music, play audio and video files of multi formats, and so on.
The USB port of the TV support most hard disks, USB flash disks, etc. If the unidentified phenomenon appears, it does not belong to the breakdown of this unit, for it has something to do with the driver of the equipment.
The USB port provides 5V voltage and the maximum current is 500 mA. Because the port specification adopted by certain storage devices is different from that of the standard USB agreement, so it may affect the correct identification of the multimedia player. This belongs to the normal phenomenon.
Due to the difference of the equipment and the storage capacity, the time which the digital multimedia player needs to read the information also differs. The speed of reading the information may slow down temporarily. That is not the breakdown of this unit.
