Format using fat

You need to format your disk drive using FAT or FAT32. NTFS is not an option on Android or other media devices, especially ones using MTP protocols. If you're using FAT or FAT32 to format your disk, you're doing the right thing and should check your TV for settings conflicts. Also make sure the USB port is not a service port, otherwise it is impossible to connect media.

My old hard drive stoped working so I got a preowned one and now it is telling me it can't read the hard drive what do I do

The preowned hard drive maybe faulty.
To test this hard drive, connect this hard drive to an USB hard drive adapter then plug the USB hard drive adapter into the USB port of a working computer. If this computer can see the USB adapter and hard drive as an external storage device and you can view the folders and files on this hard drive the the hard drive is working, if not the the hard drive is faulty and you need a new hard drive.

Reseated hard drive, computer wont re-boot, asking for disc?

Check The BIOS to see if the hard disk is detected. If not then -
Check if the harddrive is faulty, remove the hard drive and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter and connect it to a workingcomputer's USB port. If this computer cannot see itas an USB mass storage device and you cannot open the various folders and fileson this drive, then this confirms the hard drive is faulty.Then the hard drive needsto be replaced in the computer/laptop, Windows installed and the computer orlaptop's device drivers plus your programs etc. to get a functioningcomputer/laptop again.

Can't play video on sharp lc-32sb24u

The USB port on LC-32SB24U is only for firmware and other service updates. The TV can't understand the video file format; you will need to connect the TV to your computer as a monitor to display the videos. The manual discusses using the Service port starting on page 26. The manual is available here: .

I wish that I had better news for you.

As a beginner, i would like to connect seagate external drive to tv and use as a recorder

You can't connect a hard drive to a tv and record to it even if you have a usb port on the tv. The tv will read from the usb port pictures and music but it will not record to it. The tv does not have any software built into it that will let you use the usb port as a personal video recorder. It won't work.

Instal in XP

Hello, This external hard drive does not need a driver, even in XP. If you're using a desktop, don't connect it to the usb ports in front of your CPU case, instead, connect the usb at the back USB ports, if this doesn't work, try using a shorter USB cable and connect it again at the back.
