help with a memory stick

i have a lg smart tv and when i put in a 4gb usb stick the film worked fine. i have bought a 64gb memory stick now and put same film on it but when plugged into tv it says file or directory damaged. is memory stick knackered or do i need to do something to it?

Look in the handbook for the TV - it may have a limit of the size of memory it can take.

I assume the memory stick works in your PC?

be careful what you have formatted it to, some machines do not like Ntfs and will only read FAT32

Does your TV give you the option to format the stick? Some devices can be picky about having to format a drive themselves.

Have you checked that you have put the Flash drive into the correct USB port.

Not knowing the model I just picked a manual from the list of smart TV's, this indicated that it should be connected to USB port 1.
