Question: writing JPG files to FAT32 thumbdrive for TV slideshow
This has me a little stumped. Macs can read/write FAT and FAT32 formatted drives. I wanted to do a picture slideshow on a VISIO smart TV (E-Series) in another town using its built in slideshow feature from .jpg files on a USB thumbdrive. Visio manual states the USB thumbdrive must be formated FAT32 (my own Samsung TV will also take FAT and NTFS). The thumbdrives I bought, SanDisk 16 GB, came formated FAT32 (according to Get Info) so I just copied my .jpg images over, no folders. Plugging the thumbdrive into a VISIO smart TV (slightly different model than on at location) here at Costco (with thier help) for testing before leaving, and later into the VISIO TV at location, and neither recognized it, playing around with menus showed an empty drive. No problem on my Samsung TV. On location, Visio owner just copied files on thumbdrive over to another thumbdrive using a Windows computer and the Visio TVs then had no problem, so it wasn't any part of the filename or extension. I thought if one device could see files on a FAT32 thumbdrive, all devices could. Is the Mac doing something not quite standard in writing the .jpg files so Visio TVs just can't read/see them? I did eject thumbdrive before phyically removing. Is this just a problem with Visio TV having a very rudimentary OS?
