SOURCE: I don't know how to


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: .

I wish that I had better news for you.

The SimpleTech 160GB ext. drive has a usb 2.0 cable with a y plug. I can only plug in one but I use the additional power supply. I get a message at times telling me to use the usb 2.0 port for faster...

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.

I have just bought 2.5 inch toshiba external hard drive for my lap top and it is not working

you've probably popped it smell the connections for the smell of burning,check the fuse in the plug should be 5Amp,
there easy to blow, if you don't get the USB plugged in the right way first time it sparks & shorts the ports out on the computer & if you've got the hard drive plugged in & switched on before you plug the USB in then it shorts the drive out as well.
take it back to the shop & tell them two replace it.if they won't then open the unit & take out the drive because that will still work & sell it on e-bay or put it in a desktop pc.

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
