Been skimming thru this official thread for the Panasonic DMP-BDT-110, trying to setup an external hard drive connection with the player for my parents. Picked up a Western Digital Elements drive, and formatted it from its current state (NTFS) to FAT32, cause I saw in these pages of this thread that it only excepts FAT32 not NTFS, unfortunately with it having to be FAT32 it eliminates me from uploading any files larger then 4GB, so my whole MKV collection is not available, so I filled it up with MP4 which are 1GB-2GB in size, no issues.......after I did that, I plugged the drive in, and none are displayed..... Why not??? however it shows my only MKV that is smaller then 4GB, and it plays that one without issues.
So major question, why does this unit not play MP4, usually its the other way around, units don't play MKV.
Is there any work around here, maybe I need the latest Firmware?
My other option is to plug in the device into there TV directly which is a Panasonic GT30 however I hate the way it displays all the video files under there Viera Tools, its thumbnails not file listings. The kicker here, is the Panny TV won't play MKV's at all, its really hit or miss with several of the files, and only lets me use the TV speakers. not the Receiver Speaker, like the blu-ray player would.
Greatly appreciate any info.....
