Do you have a 64GB USB stick?

In the past the biggest storage for my USB stick was 32GB. Now I have a 64GB USB stick and I think everything should be better with it. However, I found that my TV can't support it. As sometimes we tend to store some movies inside the USB stick and watch it from TV. It works well with 32GB USB stick. I wonder whether 64GB is a very big storage and therefore my TV can't support it. Or perhaps my TV is old as I remember I bought it to watch the Olympics in London in 2012. If I buy a new TV, will it support 64GB USB stick?

If it is an important point for you, you should control that it can. I stuck to 32Gb USB sticks because many devices, including recent ones cannot read more than 32Gb USB sticks. Maybe you can try to partition and format your 64Gb stick into two 32Gb partitions, it is possible that your tv will be able to access to the first partition. My first partition on my sticks is a little Windows partition to be able to exchange data with Windows computers, as they are too stupid to open a Linux partition.

@youless Up to 32Gb an USB stick is formatted with a FAT32 partition which is compatible with quite all devices, while a partition with more than 32Gb has to be formatted with NTFS, EXT, HFS+ or ExFAT, and they are more OS specific. If you format a FAT32 first partition on your stick there are chances that your TV will be able to access it.
