USB playback
Using the USB interface
It is possible to listen to two-channel audio
and watch JPEG files using the USB interface
on the front of this unit. Connect a USB mass
storage device
as shown below.
1 With the player switched on, press USB.
Make sure your TV is on and set to the correct
video input.
2 Connect your USB device.
The USB terminal is located on the front panel.
3 Press
(play) to start playback.
If your USB device contains JPEGs, a
slideshow will start. See Playing a JPEG
slideshow on page 36 for more on this.
•Make sure USB DATA is showing in the
front panel display (or the system is in
standby) when disconnecting.
If a USB ERR message lights in the display, it
may mean that the power requirements of the
USB device are too high for this player, or that
the device is incompatible. Try the following:
Switch the player off, then on again.
Reconnecting the USB device with the
player switched off.
Selecting to another input source (like
DVD/CD), then back to USB.
Using a dedicated AC adapter (supplied
with the device) for USB power.
If this doesn’t remedy the problem, it is likely
your USB device is incompatible.
