    I have an old Epson Powerlite 1750 LCD projector. I'm trying to play a video on it using a flash drive. It recognizes the folder the file is in but not the .AVI file. I looked at the manual online but it didn't really say anything about video formats for flash drives, maybe it's just too old, not sure what year it came out. Any suggestions much appreciated. Thanks.

    I looked at the pdf user manual for your projector. The manual says that the projector can display the video output from cameras or computers connected to it via USB. However, the only files that it can display using a USB stick (FAT32/FAT16 formatted) as the source are image files (.bmp, .jpg, .png, .gif) or slide show files (.fse, .sit).

    The USB connection on that projector is meant to be connected to a computer, not a flash drive. The driver software is available on the Epson support website.

    From the Epson FAQ:

    I am having trouble projecting through a USB connection. What should I do?
    Try the following:
    If the USB Display driver is not installed automatically the first time you connect the cable, do one of the following:

    Windows:
    Double-click My Computer > EPSON_PJ_UD > EMP_USDE.EXE.

    Mac OS X:
    Double-click EPSON_PJ_UD > USB_Display_Installer.
    If nothing is projected after the drivers are installed, do one of the following:

    Windows:
    Select All Programs > EPSON Projector > EPSON USB Display > EPSON USB Display Vx.x.

    Mac OS X:
    Click the USB Display icon in the Dock. If you don't see it, start USB Display from the Applications folder.
    Make sure USB Type B in the Extended menu is set to USB Display. See Projector Setup Settings - Extended Menu.
    In Windows, if the mouse pointer flickers, select All Programs > EPSON Projector > EPSON USB Display > EPSON USB Display Vx.x., then clear the Transfer layered window checkbox.
    It's not important the problem be solved, only that the blame for the mistake is assigned correctly

    Thanks for answering. I think the later versions of Powerlite could play the files on a flash drive but this one is too old, darn!
