Hi,

I am looking to but a Home Cinema System that has USB port to allow the playing of music & video.

I have had a look at the Samsung offerings, but my concern is that I want to store all music on say a 80GB drive, and play via the Home Cinema.

Problem here is that there doesnt appear to be a menu function within USB connection, and you can only skip through track by track. This would be an absolute nightmare with all my music. Have considered a Windows Media Centre, but I really would,t use a lot of what it has to offer. I need something that will allow me to play music by albumn, artist etc... (Just like MP3 player)

Any suggestions? If you know there is nothing on the market that does this please say..

Thanks

Solved, the hitachi 20gb HD was formated in Ntfs, should have been fat32
