Check if it beeps when you plug in another USB devices, to find out if it is the hard drive or the TV. If the hard drive works normal on the computer, it also should work on the TV. Check the TV manual, to check how the drive should be formatted and what file formats are allowed.

Sounds like a 2 part question.

Part 1, how do you use the drive on the computer to watch recorded shows from you DVR, simple install EX for windows which will allow your computer to access Linux formatted drives.

Part 2, how do you retrieve the files that were on it before, that depends how many new files you've put on it since. When the DVR formatted the drive it didn't erase the old files and they could easily be found again with a very inexpensive program. Each show you've recorded since will have overwritten some of the files. I will give you a link below for a review I wrote of such a program. Don't buy it right away, download the trial and scan the Toshiba, the program will show you a list of files it can recover then if you think it's worthwhile for the files it shows, only then pay for the program and recover the files.

Link for EX?

Hope this helps FixYa,

SOURCE: My girlfriend purchased a Toshiba

When the drive is plugged in, right click on "My Computer," click "manage" and then in the left hand pane click "Disk Management." You will see a few drives on the right, find your USB drive. Look at the size to make sure it is the right one. Also, of course, it will not be labeled "C:". Right click the drive and click "format". Follow the prompts, and if asked for a format choose "NTFS".

Depends on the format your hard drives in (personally I'd just use a PC with an HDMI cable) and whether your TV supports USB file reading.

Hi. Thanks for your question.
  • Here's what else you can do.
  1. Check the USB cable. Make sure it's connected securely. to make sure test with other device or computer to determine that cable is OK.
  2. Once you know you are using good cable you need to make sure that Hard Drive isn't at fault. Trying to use it in other PC is the best method of making sure that everything is OK with it.

Do not hesitate to come back and ask more if none of these solutions helped you. I am sure one of FixYa expert's will be able to help you.

Thank You for using FixYa.
