Hi Bellarose,
what model Samsung TV is it?

Is it called a Wiselink on your Samsung?

My TV states that it will only support USB MSC and MP3 and Jpeg. Note that it also states that DRM files cannot be played.

not to sure to be honest it is the one with the rose black surround other than that i can not remember.not much help i know .

To be honest the fact i am connecting a external multimedia hard drive via the av connection i never thought it would effect how the tv responded i thought it would just channel through the tv for pics and such like and the fact it was up and running with music and pictures i did not think there would be a problem when i put the rest of my mp3 onto the hard drive .ann

From the instruction manual.

Wiselink only supports the USB Mass Storage Class device (MSC). MSC is a Mass Storage Class
Bulk-Only Transport device. Examples of MSC are Thumb drives and Flash Card Readers (Both USB
HDD and HUB are not supported.)

Only MP3 and JPEG file formats are supported.
The Wiselink mp3 format only supports music files with a high sampling frequency (32 kHz, 44.1 kHz,
or 48 kHz).

bellarose states that connection is through the AV channel. I hadn't picked up that it is a multimedia case and the method of connection may be the problem but this is outside my experience.

Thankyou to all that have tried to help
when i first bought this multimedia external hard drive it stated you can watch your mp4 or listen to your mp3 or view your jpegs on your tv via a av lead that you would connect such things as your camcorder etc .i though brilliant i did not realize that it would cause so much hassle .i am now unsure what to do

May help to give the make and model of the case.

sadly there is no make on the hard drive case on the box it just says usb 2.0 multimedia hd player and the number is AO5GZ .sadly that is all the information i have .thanks ann
