You can play music files located on USB storage devices through the Soundbar. The USB port on the soundbar is a MicroUSB port. To connect USB devices, a MicroUSB adapter is required (not supplied).

Before you connect a USB device


Before you connect a USB device, be aware of the following:

  ● If the file name of a file on a USB device exceeds 10 characters, it is not displayed on the Soundbar's display.

  ● This product may not be compatible with certain types of USB storage media.

  ● The Soundbar supports the FAT16 and FAT32 file systems: the NTFS file system is not supported.

  ● Connect USB devices to the USB port of the product using a USB 2.0 Micro USB plug to standard female 2.0 USB jack adapter cable. Otherwise, you may encounter a USB compatibility problem.

  ● Do not connect multiple storage devices to the product via a multi-card reader. It may not operate properly.

  ● Digital camera PTP protocols are not supported.

  ● Do not remove the USB device while it is transferring files.

  ● DRM-protected music files (MP3, WMA) from commercial web sites cannot be played.

  ● External HDDs are not supported.

  ● Mobile phone devices are not supported.

  ● File format type compatibility list: mp3, wma, aac, wav, ogg and flac.
