I am trying to connect my external Samsung USB DVD drive to the OLED75C8 and I can’t seem to get it to see it.  I am plugging it into the USB in on the back of the TV.  I select the USB on the input source but I always get the message to disconnect it and it never will play.  I know the drive is fine because it works plugged into my computer.  Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    rgieb799, it you are not able to see the DVD drive it would not be compatible with the TV. When USB devices are connected, the TV is looking for photos, video music, etc. to pull and display which the DVD player isn't providing.

    Will the TV see the LG GP65NB60 external DVD writer?  I'd like to watch movies from that unit.

    vertex11, the TV should see the drive, however, playing the content therein would be dependent on the codecs for the movies.
