So, after it fixed itself, my TV is once again not reading my USB drive. However, this time it seems like the TV is just not reading the one drive formatted with ExFAT (the other FAT32 drive seems to work). Anyone else having this problem?
I am disappointed in Samsung too .. My 4-year old 65" 4K UA65JS9000WXXY Samsung TV been having this problem with reading the USB sticks / external drives just recently .. I did tried everything with No luck .. sometimes it reads the USB stick and will continue for the night, but the minute you switch off the TV, you are done! .. its then a hit and miss whether it will read it again or not.
Tried different USB drives (about 5), even switching the TV's power from the outlet, resetting the TV to default setting ..
Almost tried everything! .. I am going to try one last trick of updating the firmware, despite the TV says it has the latest # 1530 firmware , however I just downloaded the 1.5GByte firmware 1530 file from Samsung Australia website, and will put it on a USB stick (!!!!! that's assuming it will read the ***** stick anyway ) and will see if it works ..
I am over this issue with Samsung, and will consider selling the TV cheap and go LG OLED if the firmware does not work.
I have TV Samsung UE40F6400 with the same problem with USB as Chrislsk in begin of this blog.
I have TV with latest firmware T-MST12DEUC_2126.0.
In my case help me this:
1. Turn off TV (not only with button, but I pulled TV out of the energy socket).
2. Wait more about 30 minutes (this is very, very nessesary step!).
3. Turn on TV again.
4. Goto to the "menu, support, auto diagnostics, refresh.
Thats all, my USB ports are now OK again.
I hope I helped you !
Well, Hello everybody,
Same problem here, out of nowhere. I have UE55JU7000, software version 1530. The drive is recognized, but stuck on “Loading...” forever. It works fine on UE32J5200, which is usually slower.
Big thanks to kadous, following the steps actually helped. #2 is true, I tried waiting for about 10 minutes first, the usb loaded, but wouldn’t display all of the files and only play mp4 and avi files (none of mkv). Then I unplugged it for a whole hour just to be sure. It still doesn’t display the content properly (mostly it’s just white space), but I’m able to watch what I wanted (I have to skip blindly looking for the right file, though, because the titles aren’t showing). I’m hoping Samsung is fixing it soon.
So I think this may continue to be a recurring issue unless Samsung takes care not to release updates without addressing it first. My USB issue once again solved itself, so I'm assuming they just don't check for this particular issue after updating, and then patch it afterward. Which is irritating, of course, but at least--for me, at least--it seems to get fixed eventually. (And yes, I'm able to watch very large exFAT files again...)
All items are listed on USB connections
Xfinity and Dvd
Both say to power up device, not connected
They are on, hooked up correctly , and still nothing.
All of it worked fine last month
