Download Now (655 KB)  - 100% Freeware. Free download, free for use.

Not all external USB drives work properly when connected to a TV's USB port, as they are very dependent on the TV brand and model involved. Your TV might not recognize your USB drive at all, or it might show up as being recognized by the TV, however it will not be able to display any of the contents that you may have previously put onto it.

TV USB Go software is an ideal solution for your TV and your USB drives. All USB storage devices are supported by the software, including USB flash drive, USB thumb drive, USB key drive, and external hard drive connected to a TV's port.

TV USB Go software is able to erase all data on your USB drive after you select the brand and model of your TV, format it into an empty drive with a file system that is best compatible with your TV, so you should make sure that you have a copy of all your data on another drive prior to using the software. FAT, FAT32, NTFS, and exFAT file systems are supported by the software. A TV with USB port recognizes at least one of the four file systems. TV USB Go software helps you decide the best file system to be used for your USB drive.

The user interface of the software is intuitive and straightforward, simply select the correct TV brand and exact model followed by selecting a USB drive that you wish to format, choose a cluster size (the bigger the better, as you will be storing large media files on it rather than tiny files), and click the start button. It should only take a few seconds to format a USB drive.

As more and more TV models support NTFS file system due to the fact that NTFS supports any large media file larger than 4GB, and you might wish to change your USB drive's file system type from FAT to NTFS, or from FAT32 to NTFS with a simple click on the Convert to NTFS button after you launch the software. The conversion is fast and seamless, and no data loss is expected after the conversion. If your TV does not support the NTFS file format, but prefers the FAT32 or exFAT format instead, then you will need to format your USB drive into FAT32 or exFAT. FAT32 file system has a file size limit of 4GB, and therefore it's not able to store a file larger than that in one piece. In recent years more and more TV brands support exFAT file system and/or NTFS file system, as either has such a restriction.

If you are currently shopping for a large-capacity USB drive that can be used as a media repository for your TV, try to stick to drives that are less than 2TB in size. The data on your new USB drive will be able to be correctly detected and read by your TV, as most of the nowadays TV models recognize the USB drive but read up to 2TB only.

Supported TV brands include SONY, Samsung, LG, Hisense, TCL, Sharp, Toshiba, Philips, Panasonic, Skyworth, Vizio, JVC, Polaroid, Sceptre, Supersonic, Element, Insignia, Leeco, RCA, and MI. Regardless of the TV models, be it a smart TV or a legacy non-smart TV, TV USB Go software decides how to format a USB drive and make it compatible with a TV. Given that a smart TV is shipped with Android or other operating systems and you want to install software Apps by connecting a USB drive to the TV's USB port, TV USB Go software saves a tremendous amount of time. All you need to do is to tell the software what you want, whether you want to store movies, pictures, audio files, or you want to install software Apps.

A great feature of TV USB Go software is quick format, which allows you to format any USB drive in less than 10 seconds, regardless of the capacity of your USB drive. Another great one is scan and repair. Windows has a built-in Format tool, and it sometimes fails to manipulate a USB drive not recognized by Windows. TV USB Go is able to factory reset a USB drive by removing hidden disk partitions and restoring it to its full capacity as well as making it with just one partition. The software allows you to scan corrupted USB drive for errors, if you do not have confidence in your USB drive. If you have sensitive data, the software is able to wipe the data three times with different algorithms.
