Summary: Ok so my wife and I finally bought a flat screen and we just looked at BJ's where we buy 80% of everything. She went back and forth about having the DVD player built in I wanted USB. (when I learned they had it) What I did not realize is that I can't just plug in my external HD and watch the stuff i download. Why? These USB ports are only for fat32 drives. So sure, you can plug in a USB drive but only one that will not hold anything but a 4gb file no bigger.
