Are there differences in USB flash drive technologies?
All the HDMI inputs on my Sony LCD TV recently stopped working and I thought I would try upgrading the firmware to see if that fixed the issue. Sony has the upgrade files on its site and lists some brands of flash drives that are compatible. I had one of the compatible versions available but it was a 1GB and the compatible one was a 4GB. I just couldn't believe that there would be a difference since the upgrade files were only about 10MB. The upgrade didn't work and the Sony tech guy I was chatting with told me that my drive was incompatible. Does this sound reasonable? What could account for drives nor working. The TV definitely was able to read the data (it started the upgrade but didn't finish it).
