I've searched high and low here. Nothing. Does flash or HDD matter?

My Panasonic model 50ST50 plays mkv videos files in half-SBS 3D format fine encoded with h264/avc video and ac3 audio, on a large USB flash drive.
I used the 3D settings with Auto2 for automatic 3D format detection.
External USB hard drives may require too much power for the limited capacity of the Panasonic USB ports however, unless you can connect an external power supply or Y-cable though.

Thank you for the reply. I was going to pick up that $10 Sandisk 32GB drive tomorrow at Radioshack just for testing this out. It is USB 2.0 though.

This is great great news. So you're telling me, at worst, I would want to use an external drive to do it? I think mine has USB 3.0 but I'm a bit worried about stuttering vs a flash. I doubt full SBS will work, but half will do until I save up for one of these.

I'm so in love with that machine right now but I have to wait until my divorce with Blu-ray is finalized.
