I have a Corsair Flash Voyager 16 GB USB 2.0 which I am trying to use with my Samsung HDTV's (Model: LA40C530F1RMXL) Media Play functionality. The problem is that the TV doesn't seem to detect (or power) the flash drive via its USB port since the LED on the flash drive doesn't light up and it doesn't appear in the 'Sources' list.
I don't think the problem is with the TV since I have been able to plug in a variety of other storage devices ranging from 512 MB flash drive to a 1 TB external HDD, with FAT, FAT32 and NTFS filesystems and successfully use them as media sources.
I have formatted my pen drive in both FAT32 and NTFS formats, using both quick format and long format. Then copied a single DivX file (which worked played perfectly in other thumb drives connected to the TV) and plugged it in my TV but it didn't work. I have tried to use the pen drive with other HDTVs but it didn't work with them either. So far, I had only used this pen drive with computers where it worked perfectly. How do I make the thumb drive work with the HDTV ?
Update: I updated the HDTV to the latest firmware and plugged in the thumb drive. Still not functioning.
