Newbie who needs help

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys. I'm a newbie to webOS and am having trouble transferring my photos and video.

I changed the format of the videos to mp4 and they are about 2.1GB in size. The photos are JPEG format.

For some reason, my touchpad does not recognize them after I copy them over. I plugged the touchpad into my computer then copied the files into the "download" folder. When I "Eject" the touchpad, I see the "download" folder but no images or videos. It says the "folder is empty."

I don't even see an option to refresh the system. I must be doing something wrong any help would be greatly appreciated because what is the point of having a photo viewer if I cant view photos. I was also hoping to load some movies for long rides. Thanks in advance!

I read that....

The solution was to connect the Touchpad via USB Drive then select one of the individual files I had tranfered to the Touchpad. Right click to select properties on the file. Select "read only" and deselect "hidden" and "archive" properties. Click "Apply" then "OK".

Thanks for the help guys. HP support is useless. It turns out you can only load videos less than 2gb. After I loaded my photos, I had to do a soft reboot. I held the power button and the center button down at the same time. When the touchpad restarted, it recognized both the photos and videos.

      Hello, I have an issue with a 2 year old LG UH7700 4K tv. Please note, the TV went to an authorized LG repair  shop provided by LG itself: Issue: 3/4 of the screen all of the sudden was not working. It went to black opacity and full black.   This first occurred one morning when I first started tv. Called LG and it was over the warrant by a year so they provided with a certified tv repair technician. They replaced the LED bulbs and tested by keeping it in for 8 hours while viewing

      I was reading a few articles on the launch of Disney Plus but they did not list any of the tvs such as LG webos or samsung tv. I hope disney plus comes out in lg tvs.  Its supposed to launch November 12th in the US for $6.99 a month or $69.99 a year. They also said there will be a $12.99-per-month trio bundle of Disney+, Hulu, and ESPN+ that is coming. I'm already doing espn for $4.99, I may do the entire bundle to get hulu also, not sure, At the minimum, I am definitely going to get Disney plus

    • Apple TV 4K Issues with LG UJ7700 WebOS 3.5

      I'm not sure if this is an LG or Apple issue, or if I have to try a different HDMI cable (the package says it's the latest standard) but here's what I've seen so far: I have the AppleTV 4k using Dolby Vision which looks great. 1. When using the AppleTV remote to turn on the AppleTV and LG TV (using LG Simplink), sometimes the video signal is messed up – it's blurry and out of sync. Changing the input to Live TV and then back to the AppleTV fixes it. Sometimes it just works right away.
