Can video files be played from this hard drive to a tv via usb 2.0?

Apologies, I am not very tech savvy.

I'd like to use this to store video files and then play the files on a tv via a USB port. Is this possible?

  • No. It's not a computer. And even if you had a computer, you would need a DVI to HDMI cable set up or something with VGA to view your video files on your TV. You cannot view video files on the television via USB 2.0 or 3.0. You would have to plug the drive into the computer and take the video off of the drive and put it on the computer then connect the computer to the TV.
