How to Get an LG BD550 Blu-ray Player to Do USB Video Playback

Save

The LG BD550 Blu-ray player specializes in playing high-definition discs. However, this is not the only feature available on the player. In fact, the LG BD550 has a built-in USB port. With the port you can connect a USB flash drive or external hard drive and watch videos saved on the external device. You don't need any other special hardware, and the actual viewing process only requires your remote control.

  • Power on the LG BD550 and eject any Blu-ray or DVD you have inserted into the device. The player automatically reads the disc information.

  • Plug the external device into the USB port on the LG BD550. Wait a moment and then the television screen adjusts to display a thumbnail listing of all the video files currently stored on the drive.

  • Push the directional arrow buttons on the remote control to highlight one of the video selections you want to view on the TV screen.

  • Push "Enter" and the video file begins to play on the television screen from the USB drive.
