Hi i got a TX-L47ET5 and i was trying to put a USB flash drive (Transcend TS16GJF700E JetFlash 700, 16GB) and it doesn't recognize it (well it was odd since my LG does), so i tryied one i had laying around (a 2gb one of unknown brand/model) and it worked fine, so i checked the next obvious thing (to me at least), that was the type of format they had.The one that worked was FAT32 and the Transcend was NTFS so i naturally i did a quick format to FAT32, but still... nothing.
I don't know what to do, even if it did work (the format i mean) i would still end up with a drive that would only take files up to 4gb (i think) , and i got video files stored that i would love to see on that TV (as i do on my LG) that are larger than that.
So i ask if anyone has a solution to my issue (maybe it's something simple that i'm just not seeing), i could buy a new flash drive (that i don't actually need) if i was certain that it would work with my tv.
Thanks in advance

WILD Guess.

Another poster lost weeks on something so I'll note it here. The drive had some security feature and once they turned that off it worked. Sadly they flamed everyone for not knowing they had that feature turned on.

So, i got it to work, i changed the allocation size and it worked (even after the tech support at panasonic's told it would never work because it was a 3.0 drive (?!?) ). But it worked, that what matters, now i only have to get 3d subtitles to work properly... Thanks for all the awnsers.
