SOURCE: usb harddisk problem on LG 50PT81+ not compatibel XP

LG have created a solution that only allows you to backup to a hard disk in the format that they have created.
The hard disk can not then be read by a computer as they only recognize formats such as NTFS, FAT or FAT32: not LG´s format!!!

If you reformat the disk in FAT32 format then you can copy files to the hard disk and see your photos, or certain types of DIVX files and listen to music via your TV,......BUT...you can not save TV programs from the TV to the same hard disk UNLESS you allow the TV to reformat the hard disk to LG´s format ) in which case you will lose all the files you previously had on the hard disk.

In practice LG have created a backup solution that is of little use to most users particularly bearing in mind that the backup takes almost as long as the original programs and as long again to restore.

Most of LG´s products are very clever and have a tendency to be in advance of the market.

However on this occasion LG almost had a good idea but many users are going to feel tricked like I did,

Your board numbers should start with LJ92. They will cross to both Samsung and LG. Oh, your model number goes nowhere, double check it.

When i try to play a movie off my harddrive i cannot my tv has a usb port but usb does not show up on the settings my tv is a samsung LCD model 46XV600A ?


The TV needs the drive to be formatted in a certain way before it can be recognised. Also, the file types the TV will play are specified in the User Manual.

The supported formatting for the USB port is FAT12, FAT16 and FAT32. It is FAT32 that you are able to format in from a Windows PC.

The video file format that the TV supports is DivX.

There's no specific mention of the TV having support for USB disc drives, but it does say it supports USB Mass Storage Class devices. This does include external hard drives. As a general recommendation, use an external power supply with the drive rather than relying on the 5V USB power rails.

Tip

USB Devices


The USB Input only accept USB Device formated with FAT and FAT32 - Any large uSB Devices like a 500Gb External USB Drive will not work. Also these drive MUST be MASS Storage compatible - eg an Ipod will not work. Finally this Model does not play any video on the 42 inch one does.

How to remove write protection from sony hd-e1


PC & MAC use different file systems.
It sounds like your hard disk is formatted as NTFS. NTFS will allow a MAC to read from the disk, but not write to it. You need to re-format it using FAT32 (if your MAC is older) or exFAT(if your MAC is fairly new)..
FAT32 will allow a maximum partition size of 2TB(when formatted from a MAC) and a maximum single file size of 4GB.
exFAT will allow pretty much any file size.
NB:Formatting a hard drive DELETES ALL FILES on the hard drive, so backup whatever is important before you re-format it.
1. Open Applications > Utilities
2. Choose you hard drive from the list on the left
3. Choose the "Erase" tab and choose your desired format (FAT32/exFAT)
4. Type in a new name..Click "Erase"

I can`t see photo files like jpeg etc, from my flash memry (8GB) - empty folder. But, avi files are running properly. TV is Sony KDL-46HX800. Is it some upgrade or something, or what?


Hi,

The TV will only detect USB Devices if it is formatted in FAT32 format.
Files from a USB device need to be compatible with the following file formats.

- Still images: JPEG format or RAW format (preview only)

- Music: MP3 format

- Video: AVCHD, MP4 (AVC) or MPEG1 format (not playable in some cases)


Make sure that you're using the compatible file formats in the USB Drive.

Also check if the USB Drive which you're using is compatible with the TV.

Click here to check the list of compatible devices which Sony recommends,


The accessible file or folder limit in a directory is 1,000 for USB. This limit includes non-supported files or just folders. Files or folders are populated based on their time stamps. Photo, music files or folders exceeding the limit will not be displayed.


Check if the above mentioned criteria meets the requirements.


Thanks for using FixYa.

My Sanyo LCD 40XR10F TV does not recongnise any mp4 movies i have on my external hardrive or usb stick?? Does it matter what size usb disk/drive/how many files are stored on them for it to play them?


Before you loaded the hard drive, and USB did you run a "Check File System" through the TV? These devices in order to use the "Time Shift Function", have to have pass with "SUCCESS", displayed on the screen. If not the TV will format a 4GB FAT32 filing system for you. The reason your MP4's might not work might be due to a firmware update that no longer supports MP4. You should have been OK if you recorded the material from the TV. Items you record from the TV will not play on any other device. Using the FAT32 format only allows 4GB but, the TV allow 8GB and a external device can be FAT32 format to 8GB. 8GB is only 2 hours of viewing time. So that should give you some idea how little the amount of files can be handled.

How do i connect an external hard drive to my LG LCD Tv?


The LG's will support an external USB hard drive, but it seems the USB support was intended for thumb drives, so yuo need to do the following to get it working:
  1. the drive must be formatted FAT32 (like thumbdrives)
  2. keep the file names short
  3. keep the directory structure simple and as flat as possible
I have a 60GB laptop drive in a USB 2.0 enclosure drive working really nicely with good transfer rates. It takes it's power from the USB socket and is working fine.

Hope this helps.
