Supported media types CD/DVD and BD Single Layer types of media written in UDF or ISO are supported. (except for DVD-RAM) The ISO and UDF formats To understand the ISO and UDF formats, you have to understand the concept of file systems on storage devices. Since ODDs only support the ISO and UDF file systems, the data needs to be converted to a file system that the AV system can recognize for the data on the ODD to be used.
Because the file system conversion takes longer, if you connect a high- capacity disc, the connected device (such as TV) will require some time to recognize the Samsung external-type ODD (1G = approximately 30 seconds). • When recognizing the ODD, the LED of the ODD blinks continuously.
Does the AV connectivity function allow me to connect to a device such as a TV that only has video, photo and music playing functions?
