Your TV is very unlikely to be able to read the external drive. The USB connection on most TVs are meant to view pictures and lack the ability to navigate file systems and read most file formats. Your best bet is hook the hard drive up to a computer or a video game system (PS3 and Xbox360 do this) and then hook that computer or game system to the TV.
Thanks for the response.
I've solved the problem.
I was trying to download a programme that was too big from the hard drive to the disc.Once I inserted a divide in the progeamme everything worked Ok,
The only way out of this is to reset the TV back to 'shipping condition'. Go to Analogue Mode and then press Menu. In SETUP pick 'shipping condition' and ok your way through. Then switch off and back on again after a minute, and let it retune etc.
The annoying screen messages now disappear after a couple of seconds. Viola
Check your owners manual and see if there is a way to format the hard drive. If so, format it and try it again.
If not, or if you can't get past the hdd error, check your owners manual and see what type of hard drive it takes. Go to your local computer store, buy one and install it in your TV. This SHOULD stop the error message, and allow you to format the new drive using your TV's menu structure. Again, check the owners manual for formatting instructions.
If you are an experimental type of person, you can install the tv hard drive in an external hard drive case, plug it into your computer and try to get it running.
Finally, if it turns out to be some kind of proprietary hard drive you may have to check with LG to purchase a replacement.
