How do I project images from an external drive or flash memory drive?

    You can use the projector's PC Free feature to project compatible images 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.
