WD TV Live USB Stick: which Format is the most reliable?


#1

Hi dear people,

I’m using a WD TV Live device to play a very long list of videos (About 100, max 5 minutes length each, most of them shorter) in a folder. Play all in a loop. In use for 6 to 8 hours per day 3 weeks long.
Which format would you advise me to use by formatting the USB Stick.
I’m working on a mac so I can format the stick with following format:
MAC OS Journaled
MAC OS Extended
MS DOS Dateisystem FAT
Ex-FAT

Thanks a lot!
Bilbo

Why not use its current format?

read the user manual : http://www.wdc.com/WDProducts/Library/UM/ENG/4779-705035.pdf

Actually the circumstances change here. I have to put all the movies in a long file (3 or 4 hours) which will be exported daily as between the small files WT display a black gap of a few seconds. It is an interactive art installation, therefore the daily updates.
So I must use FAT isn’t it?
Weird is that in the manual it is not mentioned that MacOS will be recognized but it does…
