How do I project images from a USB device or external drive?
You can use the projector's PC Free feature to project compatible images, files, or movies from a USB device. Connect your USB device or camera to the projector's USB-A port, then switch the projector's display to this source. When you're done projecting, make sure you disconnect the device from the projector correctly.
The devices must be USB-mounted devices, not TWAIN-compliant devices, and must be USB Mass Storage Class-compliant.
Supported PC Free File Types
You can project these types of files using the projector's PC Free feature.
Note: For best results, place your files on media that is formatted in FAT16/32. If you have trouble projecting from media formatted for non-Windows file systems, try formatting the media for Windows instead. You may not be able to use the security features on certain USB storage devices with PC Free features. When connecting a USB-compatible hard drive, connect the AC adapter supplied with the drive.
