SOURCE: I don't know how to

Hello

I dont know the model of your tv so I can only get you so close on LG's support site.

Anyhow, after you visit the link, go to the lcd tvs and tell it which model.. This will give you access to the user manual and you can read up on how to use those inputs.

Best of luck

Unsupported usb


Windows has a 2 TB MBR limit. So, I expect the TV does as well. What that is?

You need to ready new hard drives by formatting prior to use, and in your case partition as well.

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: http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/Sharp_LC37SB24U_LC32SB24U_Manual.pdf .

I wish that I had better news for you.

You are using the correct connection, the external power supply is powering the drive, so the USB cable is just handling data. I believe the message may be telling you that you will get faster performance using a USB 2.0 connection, it is probably sensing that your computer's USB port is USB 1.1.

Hi,

Even though it is possible that your USB hard driveis corrupt, but

before you finally conclude, try out these few troubleshooting

steps.

First of all, it is possible that the USB port that you are using is a

USB 1.0 port, which has a lower voltage not enough to

power on your Storage drive.

In this case, there are two things you can do,

1. Change the USB port you are using for the storage drive to a

USB 2.0 one (Just keep Checking all the ports one by one in case

you dont know which one it is).

2. If your Storage drive has external power facility, just plug it in

an external power first, before connecting it to the system.

If there are no USB 2.0 Ports on your system at all,

then just go to any electronic store and tell them you want to buy

a USB 2.0 Expansion card.

and if it is a laptop, A USB 2.0 PCMCIA card.

Install it on your system, and connect your external drive through it.

Meanwhile, before you try out the second option, test the drive on

a friend's system, that you are sure has a very good system, with

USB 2.0 port.

If after trying out all these, the USB Drive still doesn't work, then

I'm afraid, the drive might have been bad/spoilt.

Kindly keep me posted about the problem and let me know how it

goes

Hope this helps you out.

Thank you for using Fixya

Goodluck

This depends on your country, i.e whether you can easily get what I'm about to tell you to buy from any computer store.
There is an external drive case that is being sold at many computer stores now that can actually enable you to connect your harddrive to it, then it has an external USB cable that will make you to be able plug it in any available USB port on a system (I recommend USB port 2.0 for high speed rate). So you can just get that and trust me, you'll be fine...lol.
Hope this helps.
Goodluck!

Connecting a camera/ipod


The reason the ipod doesn't work is because it contains a hard drive and the USB port on the tv is a flash drive port only, this might be the same issue with the camera, if you go to the philips website you can download a software upgrade for the tv but it will not solve the hard drive issue the port just won't support it
