.fat is not a file type. FAT is a type of partition formatting.

You need to delete any partition on the memory stick and then make a new partition. Then FORMAT the partition using FAT or FAT 32, depending on the capacity of the partition.

You should copy any file currently on the memory stick to your computer. Deleting and reformatting will erase any current files. After you do the above, you can copy your .jpg files to the memory stick.

The file extension .jpg is the most widely used picture file type (compressed).
As above - it does not need altering.

Are you sure the smart TV lets you view pics from a usb drive?

I didn't see anything in the specs regarding viewing pics of any sort....

The thing about it that turns me off a bit that it's using a linux 2.6 OS
I have never had much luck with any Linux based system...but then again...it could just be me...that's my humble opinion.

I can view jpg files on a 2010 set top box. If a smart TV cannot do this then it cannot be very smart at all. I don't know why this is not working but surely something as basic and simple is included. If it doesn't appear in the spec it may be the same reason that a steering wheel is not included in the spec for a car.

Whether it is using Linux or not matters little if the interface is straightforward. It does not imply the need to be proficient in the technicalities of Linux. After all we don't have much trouble using either this forum or Google, both of which employ Linux OS's.

Derek, My guess is the TV can't handle whatever format is currently on the memory stick.

Do you mean the memory stick formatting or the picture format?

now for my final word...I have to agree with response #5....easiest thing is to try a different usb stick to see if that works.
