Question about Computers & Internet
I am attempting to connect my external hard drive ( model: Philips SPE3091CC 1TB 3.5" External Hard Disk Drive USB2.0) to my dvd player through a USB cable. the dvd player or any others i have tried are not reading the HDD. i believe it is because the HDD has the format of NTFS where other HDDs that work are FAT32. there is no way to change the philips 1TB HDD to FAT32.how can i solve this problem?Thanks
My question would be are the movies in the right format. Just because they play on your computer does not mean they will play on you DVD.NTFS or FAT 32 would have no bearing on this. They are simply data per sector protocols and are related to magnetic storage devices.You may need the proper codec for you computer so it can make a DVD you player can play.

This is more a note than a solution:
A drive in NTFS format cannot be converted back to FAT or to FAT32. In order to restore the drive to the previous file system, you must reformat it as FAT or as FAT32.
Question: What make and model is you DVD player?
