what to do...
I have a 4gb flashdrive with FAT32 File system and i am using
windows 7 and i want to transfer videos from pc to flashdrive.
I have almost 63 video file to transfer and the file size is almost 1.5 gb in total the video file are 2-5mins in lenght. Im transferring it because i want to watch it on TV. When i try to transfer it. only 25 files can play and the rest are unsupported. Ive format my flshdrive for so many times in order to transfer but the result is still the same. Is there any problem on my flashdrive or the pc itself or my transferring? pls tell me how to fix it. Thank you

Hi

What are the file format of the videos that won't play?

Do you get an error message when you try to play them?

If you are just transferring the files to your flash drive what does Windows Media player got to do with the Flash Drive ? Windows Media player also has nothing to do with your TV.

MP4 is the proper format for a smart TV

There is nothing wrong with your flash drive.
