Unfortunately, I can't speak too far on non-U.S. products. If you're having trouble with formats or getting the iPod to play, it might be best to call the Samsung customer service center in your region. I wish I could help, but I don't have access to that model to help troubleshoot.
I can't seem to get this to work I transfer avi files over to the 16gb usb stick and put it in and nothing comes up in the menu's. It just shows a root directory. The files are visible on computer in the usb. Is there a certain way to have them appear?
Also why with the iphone am I unable to play through a hdmi cable? I have to switch it to AV to work.
