Simple. I think I answered 4 other posts like this recently.

USB ports on home AV devices are not standard, and they definitely don't do everything a PC can. Some can only deal with a specific HD format. Some can only deal with Flash, not HD. Even if it recognizes your HD, it may not play all files due to codec limitation. Some are only for diagnostic, firmware update, not for playing media. Manuals sometimes specify what it can do, and some very cryptic, so trial&error.
