How to connect BRPlayer to external drive by USB 2.0 ?

The Player has a usb 2.0 outlet on the front so you can plug in a flash drive to it. I have used it with flash drives in the past with no problems. I tried to hook-up a Seagate External 3T Drive, which is a usb 2.0 Plug-and-Play Device. It did not work. Is there a way to hook-up so that it will work?

You will find that the 3TB drive is drawing too much power.
USB Flash sticks only use a small amperage, which the BR player can power.
But the external 3TB will be drawing far too much.

You could look at getting a USB power injector.
These are USB cables with two ends, one would go to the BR player, the other to an additional USB power injector.

But to be honest 3TB may be too large for the player to read

External hard drive not accessible


A Hitachi USB external hard drive is a device that acts as portable, removable storage for your personal computer. If you need additional space to house files on your computer but don't want to go to the trouble of installing an internal drive inside the case, a USB external hard drive is your best option. These drives are "plug and play" devices, which means that very little can actually go wrong. If you're having problems, fixing them shouldn't take more than a minute or two.

Check your connections. A USB cable needs to be connecting your Hitachi external hard drive to your computer. Your external hard drive's power cable also needs to be plugged into a functional wall outlet, surge protector, extension cord or power strip. Make sure your Hitachi USB external hard drive is turned to "On." An "On/Off" button is present on the front of the unit. If the indicator light around said button is not illuminated, the drive is "Off" and your computer won't be able to recognize it. Press it to turn it on and then try to access your drive again. Format your hard drive. If your Hitachi USB external hard drive doesn't currently have a file system on it, you won't be able to use it to store data. Open up the "Computer" icon in the "Start" menu. Right-click on your USB external hard drive's icon and click "Format." Click "Start." This will install a file system on your Hitachi USB external hard drive. After this process is finished, you will now be able to use your drive. Restart your computer. Certain models of computers (especially older models) won't recognize new hardware unless your computer boots with the hardware already connected. Leave your USB drive plugged in and restart your computer. Once you do this, your Hitachi USB external hard drive should appear as normal in the "Computer" folder with all of your other drives. Hope this helps.

Could very well be that the external hard drive is drawing more power than what the player can deliver - it is enough for a usb stick but not for the external drive. Now if you use an external drive that is self powered I am sure there will be no issue.

I have a WD 1600U EXT USB DRIVE. IT WORKS GREAT ON MY DESKTOP; HOWEVER WHEN I PLUG INTO MY LAPTOP, THE BLUE BLICKS, MY LAPS ACKNOWLEDGES USB CONNECTION, BUT IT JUST LOADS, STOP, RELOAD UNTIL I UNPLUG IT


I have had the same problem with laptops and USB drives. The external drive simply is not getting enough power.

The two solutions that seem to work are:

1) External power adapter for the USB Drive. Many external USB drives have a micro power plug next to or near the USB plug. A 5 Volt adapter (which plugs into the wall OR one that plugs into your cigarette lighter plug in a car) will cure this problem.

2) Some external USB drives come with a plug which has (2) USB plugs which plug into your laptop (laptops typically limit the power for each USB port) and one plug on the other end for your USB drive.

My two front usb ports cant read usb hard drives


Some external USB drives require external power sources. Typically this is done either with an external power supply that connects to the drive or a second USB cable that connects to the drive and a second usb port on the pc. I have even seen one drive that comes with a Y cable. one end goes to the drive and the 2 usb plugs go to the pc.

Ipod ready/USB problem


The USB port is to be used with USB mass storage devices like flash drives, thumbdrive or external hard drives. The IPod's USB connection is not seen as a mass storage device it is proprietary. You need the iPod connection kit, part number KS-PD100 to connect your iPod to the deck.
