How do I project images from a USB storage device?
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 or the USB-A port on the bottom of the control pad (BrightLink 1485Fi only) and switch the projector's display to this source. When you're done projecting, make sure you disconnect the device from the projector correctly. Turn off the device and unplug it, if necessary, and then disconnect it.
The devices must be USB-mounted devices, not TWAIN-compliant devices, and must be USB Mass Storage Class-compliant.
Note: You can use the remote control, the interactive pen, or your finger to control the display of your files. A Touch Unit must be installed for finger touch operation.
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. PC Free may not work with USB device security features.
Note: While projecting a PC Free presentation, you cannot correct the image shape using keystone correction. Correct the image shape before starting your presentation.
