What should be USB disk format over 4GB?

Post by Cinquanta » Fri Oct 07, 2016 10:01 am

I can't play movies greater than 4GB capacity with an external USB disk. The television could not detect the USB disk.

I am using an Apple Mac. The available disk utility format types are:
- OS X Extended (Journaled)
- OS X Extended (Case-sensitive, Journaled)
- MS-DOS (FAT)
- ExFAT

It laso has schemes to when you erase a drive:
- GUID Partition map
- Master Boot Record
- Apple Partition Map

Which capacity of USB disk can be used with which format?

Television fw version is T-GAPDEUC-1021.2, BT-G
Model code UE55D7000LSXTK
Version no H302

Thanks a lot.

Not sure ext3/4 are natively supported for external devices on D (they're also not on E). I think without tricking NTFS is only choice :)

Thank you for the answers. Will NTFS format type be useful starting from 8GB of USB stick up to 1TB? Will the SAMSUNG TV detect it and play the movies in it?

NTFS and exFAT support files bigger than 4GB. You can try it format with ntfs and copy movie and play it.

Thank you both for your advices. Yes, NTFS is the solution for my question. I tried and succeded. The only problem is as I have Mac mini and it has not this utility. So I downloaded trial version of NTFS for Mac from http://www.tuxera.com.
I wish mac had this utility, too.

Or ntfs-3g opensource utility also for ishit devices. Other easier way is download Gparted Live CD/USB.
