yes i read the manual. it wasn't helpful at all. it doesn't explain how many steps there are in order to play content off either an sd card or a usb drive.
no i don't have a jump drive.
A JumpDrive and USB flash drive are the same thing. I think the other poster was saying to try it from both the SD card slot and USB slot before giving up.
It might be time to install a computer or digital media extender box to play videos. I use an old XP computer running MediaPortal.
