DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) is a function which uses network to share data(s) between devices. A user may read data(s) from other devices (computer system in general) through TV and operate(limited function is available for back up/support files).


1. Press the POWER button to turn the TV on.

2. Connect a USB device containing photo, music and/or movie files to the USB1(HDD) or USB2 jack on the side of the TV.

3. When the Application selection screen is displayed, press the ENTERE button to select Media Play (USB & DLNA).

For the further information of Media Play,

    MTP (Media Transfer Protocol) is not supported.

    The file system supports FAT16, FAT32 and NTFS.

    Certain types of USB Digital camera and audio devices may not be compatible with this TV.

    Media Play only supports USB Mass Storage Class devices (MSC). MSC is a Mass Storage Class Bulk-Only Transport device. Examples of MSC are Thumb drives, Flash Card Readers and USB HDD (USB HUB is not supported.).

    Please connect directly to the USB port of your TV. If you are using a separate cable connection, there may be a USB compatibility problem.

    Before connecting your device to the TV, please back up your files to prevent them from damage or loss of data. SAMSUNG is not responsible for any data file damage or data loss.

    Connect a USB HDD to the dedicated USB1(HDD) port.


      Do not exceed 1.5 amperes.

    Do not disconnect the USB device while it is loading.

    MSC supports MP3, JPEG and movie files, while a PTP device supports JPEG files only.
