Fix Philips DVD Player Not Reading Video In Flash Drive Problem
Modern DVD Players (Eg. Philips DVD Player) come with USB 2.0 Port for playing movies directly from flash drive or external hard drive. But some times you may have trouble in which the DVD Player doesn’t recognize the data in the Pen drive and shows message as “Empty Card” even though there are compatible videos (AVI, WMV, DIVX,VOB) in it. 90% of such problems are due to wrong file system of the Flash drive or external hard drive.
By default, most of flash drives come formatted with “FAT” type. But you may have formatted it to NTFS or FAT32 file system for some purposes like installing Windows 7 though USB etc which needs NTFS file system.

c) Clear check box “Quick Format” and then click “Start” button for formatting to begin.
