For the first time in several years I tried to use the USB port to play a movie I have on a portable USB drive. I cannot find a way to select the USB port. It is not listed on the Drop down menu using the Inputs button on the remote. I tried the Viera Media Player and it doesn't seem to be listed there either.
What am I missing or how do I select the USB port?

Thanks very much,
Bill

If your drive is Hard Drive based the tv won't have enough power to run it. You need a flash drive or a powered external 2GB or smaller. I'm pretty sure mkv and avi aren't compatible. The USB ports will only show up in the tv's media player.

Thanks for the responses. The drive in question is a flash drive, I don't know the file format but this video played on a friend's Samsung. I will try the viera Connect process and see if that works.
