Hello, you need to be sure that the File system that you are using (NTFS, FAT, HFS+, etc) is compatible with the TV. If the file system is compatible, you also need to verify if the files that you are trying to play are compatible.

Fat32 also has about a 4GB file size limitation if I remember correctly. May be something to take into consideration, depending on what format and resolution your movie files are in.
