@kjkjk32: It isn't possible to delete files that are stored on an external USB drive on the TV itself. To delete recorded content, please go to Source > Connected Device > Filter By > Recorded. Hope this helps.

NO 

THIS NOT HELP 


 Samsung explicitly states that files can be deleted from USB and show how
But there is no actual screen option!

OLED TVs can easily delete any USB file

 


I have no idea what you recorded here "
Source> Connected Device> Filter By> Recorded. Hope this helps. "

I did check the user manual, and there were only instructions on how to view external media stored on USB devices, I'm afraid. Where did you read that it was possible to delete files from a USB device via the TV?

In Manuel's TV I received it and not Manuel's updates!

 

Every TV lets you delete files from USB!
All LG, Sony, Panasonic TVs

Just so we're on the same page, are you referring to recordings captured on the TV and saved to a USB device, or external media downloaded from another location and viewed on the TV via USB device?

NO 


I'm talking about video files I transferred to USB from my computer

Please refer to page 79 and 80 of the user manual, linked below.

So, my understanding based on this information is that you go to Home > Source > Connected Device (select as appropriate). If you select 'Options' at the bottom of the screen, this "Deletes or plays the selected media content in the media content list. When you select Refresh, the content list is reloaded." However, it also states below this information, "You can delete only the recorded content."

no 

I'm trying it and can't delete files!

This is explained in Manuel and in practice you cannot delete files!

 

I also know how to read Manuel, but again it doesn't work in reality!

This is a question for people who have the screen and know how to delete files!
From USB
