    What do I need to know about connection between USB Memory Device and Philips TV?

    Published on 2019-09-10

    Devices connected to the USB port of your TV must be “Mass Storage Class” compliant. If your device (digital camera. MP3 player, portable hard disk, …) is not “Mass Storage Class” compliant it will not be detected by the content browser of the TV.

    The following subsets of the Mass Storage Class specification are supported:

    • The implementation of the TV is based on the “Universal Serial Bus Mass Storage Class Specification Overview” (v1.2, June 23, 2003) including all documents referenced by the document

    The document can be found on the USB standardisation website (www.usb.org).

    • Full support of the USB Mass Storage Class Bulk-Only Transport (bInterfaceProtocol = 50h)
    • Partial support of SubClass Code = 01h; Reduced Block Commands (RBC) T10, Project 1240-D
    • Full support of SubClass Code = 02h; SFF-8020i spec, MMC-2 (ATAPI)
    • Full support of SubClass Code = 04h; UFI, typically used by floppy disk drive devices
    • Full support of SubClass Code = 05h; SFF-8070i spec
    • Full support of SubClass Code = 06h; SCSI transparent command set

    For large USB memory devices, when you are in the Content Browser, it may take a long time before you can access your files if you select Pictures or Music. However, you can access the content immediately if you select All Files in the Content Browser menu.

    When using a USB portable hard disk: Due to the high power consumption of the hard disk, it is advised to use the external power supply of the portable hard disk to guarantee proper working under all conditions.

    The information on this page applies to the following models: 32PF9830/10 , 37PF9830/10 .
