Please specify what you mean when you say "windows format" and "Mac format". If you mean that it recognizes .WMV files and not .MP4, then that is simply because the codecs includes in the television are only current up to the manufacture date. The good thing about Smart TVs is that you can update the firmware and this usually includes codec updates. Check that first, should be in the menu somewhere, look for "update". The other possibility is that it is an M4P file or M4U or .MOV, which is an Apple video or audio file. These have been encrypted to ensure playback on Apple devices ONLY. Thanks corporate America!! You can find hacks online to decrypt and convert them but I would just download an .AVI or .MP4 version of whatever it is you are trying to play and test whether the tv picks it up or not. Then you'll know if it's your device (USB), your tv, or protectionist Apple (most likely)

SOURCE: usb device not recognised

First try this OPTION:

Possibilities:
1) One of your USB devices have faulted, or is causing a resource conflict (or similar)
-- Remove all USB devices, and reboot.
2) Your USB chip/ports have been damaged.
-- Find a spare HardDisk or bacjup your data and re-install Windows and see how that goes.
3) Your Power Supply Unit (PSU) isnt supplying enough power to your PC (usually caused by a Video card upgrade). Try a more powerful PSU ... 400watts should do the trick
4) Bad memory (RAM) can cause wierd problems. run memtest for an hour to make sure your memory is ok





It seems that many people are still getting the 'USB Device not Recognized' problem from time to time. Unfortunately there is no easy fix.
Firstly, it's recommended that you make sure every one of your motherboard drivers are completely up-to-date, but you probably already knew that.
In XP, after a USB port isn't used for a long while the USB driver built into the OS sets the OHCI controller to suspend. When you plug a device back in, it can sometimes fail to 'wake up' properly. This problem was supposedly fixed in SP1 but there is a related registry hack that may still be able to help.
Run regedt32.exe and navigate to;
HKEY_LOCAL_Machine\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Usb
Create the Usb key if it doesn't already exist. Under this key, create a new DWORD value called DisableSelectiveSuspend and give it a value of 1. Then restart the PC.
A long shot perhaps, but I recall having similar problems with a USB hub built into my Microsoft keyboard and adding this key seemed to solve it. It wouldn't hurt in trying .
Alternatively, removing all entries relating to USB in Device Manager and all associated USB drivers will force XP into refreshing the USB driver stack.
Begin by unplugging all USB devices, then use Add/Remove Programs in Control Panel to uninstall any USB driver software. Next, boot up into safe mode and go to Device Manager. Once in device manager make sure 'Show hidden devices' is checked under the View menu. Uninstall all device entries in this order;
1. USB peripheral devices (printers etc.)
2. HID and/or Composite USB (Human Interface Devices) You're using PS/2 input devices so you may not have this entry.
3. USB Root Hub(s)
4. USB Host Controller(s) (Universal or Enhanced Host Controllers)
Then boot back into Windows (not safe mode) and it should populate the Root Hubs & Host controllers again. Proceed to plug your USB devices back in, starting with your powered hub. Be aware that most USB printers and scanners need to have their drivers installed first before you plug them in.
Hopefully some of this may be of help, let us know how you get on.

SOURCE: EISA configuration

I believe that he EISA configured partition is where your computer manufacturers 'Restore System' data is kept so that you can't normally access it and mess it up. You seem to have gone to a lot of trouble to do work around that.
I would be interested to know if you can still restore your system now using the data that you transferred to a different partition?

SOURCE: PC not recognising Iomega Prestige 320gb usb portable hard drive

Does the drive show in Device Manager? Right click on 'My Computer' and select properties, the open device manager.. Navigate down to Disk Drives or Hard Drives, click on the plus sign and see if your drive is listed. If it is, then right click on the drive name and open properties for the drive. Click on the 'Volumes' tab and hit the 'Populate Button'. It may be the disk just needs initialising, then reformatting before you can use it. If it does need initializing, a wizard should appear to guide you through the process!
If this doesn't solve your problem, try using a different USB cable and/or USB ports on your computer, and ensure to unplug all other USB devices other than keyboard & mouse.

How to watch iTunes movies on LG smart TV without Apple TV?


Lg won't talk to your Mac, what I do is take a pc formatted USB stick and copy the movie to it and then plug it into a USB port on the tv. If the file is bigger than 4 gb you will need to write it to an ntfs formatted drive, the Mac doesn't speak that natively but there are free file systems for the Mac that do out on the internet.

My jvc smart tv wont recognise my new western digital hard drive


Digital tvs are good at this. I had to buy a digital converter box to pick up over the air channels with a usb port on it, to play mine, you can pick up one on amazon for about 30 bucks. Make sure it has usb streaming port before you buy it!

Seagate freeagent goflex 750 put some movies onto it no problem ,but my tv, or bluray usb doesnt recognise it .any ideas?


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya. Can you pleae provide the make and model of the blueray device so that we can check if the file format of the blueray device is NTFS or FAT32. By default external hard drive is set to NTFS. A good example of this one is a PS3. Ps3 can only detect a hard drive that is a Fat32 fotmat so incase you connect a NTFS hard drive it wont detect it.
Thanks

Plug it in, then on your desktop right click the My Computer icon, then click on Manage. From the window that opens click on Disk Management. In the right hand pane, you may then see your drive displayed. Right click in the lower right pane on your device and click on Explore. If it open the drive to show the files, you should be able to come out of all the windows and then access the drive normally.

My Belkin Home Base F5L049 isn't recognising my external hard drives that have their own power supply. Seems to be working fine with USB powered hard drives. How do I get it to recognise my powered...


Hi,

I am having similar problems with my HomeBase. I have 3 x 1Tb Seagate external USB2.0 NTFS drives (FreeAgent) connected. The aim is to have my digital TV, LG set-top box, Apple TV, PC and Laptop all access the files and capacity offered by the NAS option.

They work fine in 'single user network USB' mode, but are very flaky / non-existant in 'NAS, multi-user' mode. There are times when the HomeBase is restarted and recognises one or more of the drives in NAS mode, but mostly they are not recognised. On the back of the unit, you can see the LED next to the USB port leading to the drives initially stay lit, but then flashes for 10-15 seconds and then goes out.

As I want the hard disks available to multiple devices I need to use the NAS setting.
Did you try to set the drives into 'Network USB mode' rather than NAS mode. Does that help?

Did anyone have a solution to the problem? Unfortunately Belkin technical support have not been very useful yet...

Thanks

Mark
