The above answer is good, but assuming you want the hard drive for it's capacity, you may just have to format it so the TV can recognize it. According to LG, they support FAT32 and NTFS file systems. You'll need to use NTFS if you have a large drive.
In Windows, you can do this from File Explorer/My Computer; right click on the drive, select Format,
If you're on a Mac, you'll need a 3rd party tool to format that to NTFS, instead of the Apple file system, as OSX doesn't support writing to NTFS natively.

Think the USB has to be fat32 in order the tv recognises it.you are better off with USB stick or sd card for that sort of thing

SOURCE: wd800jd sata hard drive not recognized in bios on boot up

Hi, A couple of ideas: 1. There are 3 versions of this motherboard: Dragon Plus, V1.0 & V2.0, perhaps your BIOS needs an update to be able to recognize the new HD. This of course would require flashing; 2. There are two variations of a WD SATA hard drive: Serial ATA amd Serial ATA II; 3. Re Jumper settings: the eight-pin jumper block is only used to enable power management on the drive. There are no master/slave settings since there is only one drive per cable; 4. If you are fresh installing Windows on it, you need to press F6 when asked by the Windows Installer and follow on-screen instructions. Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back how things turn up or should you need further information.

SOURCE: How can i make my seagate hard disk an usb hard

It is quite easy, do not worry.
You only need to bought and USB enclosure, here is a link to many products on ebay
http://search.ebay.com/search/search.dll?from=R40&_trksid=p0.m37.l1313&satitle=hard+drive+enclosure+usb&category0=

then you have to connect your hard drive inside the enclosure and the enclosure to your computer using the usb cable and that's it.
Just be carefull about the enclosure, I guess it is a Hard drive from a desktop, is in it? because some enclosure are for laptop's hard drive.
Also you need to know if your hard drive is SATA or IDE, IDE is the normal gray bus cable with fourty some pins, and the SATA it is a really small cable (I do not use technicims to not confuse you even more).

Also, there are some adapters from IDE/SATA to USB that you can buy in your local computer store (do not go to bestbuy, compusa, ... they only sell external hd), or also get it from ebay.
The only diference between the enclosure and the adapter is that the enclosure looks better :D, and the adapter is just a bunch of cables.

Windows XP does not have built in SATA drivers. You will need to download the XP drivers from Western Digital's website and install before the computer will allow you to format and use your new drive. Hope this helps.

Can you record from a smart tv with arecording box


First of all you need to check if your TV supports recording. Some 2010 models do and most 2011 have it implemented. Look for stickers or logos such as:
  • USB Recording
  • PVR (Personal Video Recorder)
  • DVR (Digital Video Recorder

  • The following manufacturers support it in some of their models. Typically mid-end to high-end models. Check the manufacturer web site if you are unsure.
  • Samsung
  • Sony
  • LG
  • Philips
  • Panasonic
  • Toshiba
  • Sharp (only Time Shift pausing)
  • Grundig

    What you need

    Many consumers have USB recording enabled TVs without actually using the function - simply because it requires an extra USB hard drive ou need the following:
    1. USB Recording: A HDTV that supports recording.
    2. A USB HDD: FlatpanelsHD uses a USB HDD from Transcend.
    3. Digital channels: Recording is only enabled on digital channels - not analog. You can record SD, HD and 3D.
    Some manufacturers recommend USB hard drives with external power supplies but we have used a Trandscend USB HDD that takes power from the USB plug on all manufacturers' TVs without any problems. Manufacturers typically allow 1:1 recording, meaning that you will see no loss in picture quality.

    How to set up USB Recording

    Once you have purchased a USB hard drive and connected it on the back of the TV you can move on to "pairing" the USB HDD with the TV. Here is how to set up USB recording.

  • Connect the USB HDD to a free USB port on the back of the TV.
  • The USB hard drive now needs to be formatted (all data will be deleted).
  • Most TVs help you to format the USB HDD automatically but on some models you need to enter the menu and select format HDD (or something similar)

    Can I record programs from the BT vision box to my USB to watch on my PC


    Usually it works the other way around: you download videos to your PC, copy/transfer them to a flash drive and then watch those videos from the flash drive on the big screen of your TV rather than on your PC's not-so-big screen. To do what you want, check if your BT Vision box has the capability to copy files from its internal hard drive to the USB flash drive.

    I guess you mean a Set Top Box to convert digital TV transmission to old analog TV. Choose the correct video format for your screen.
    Ah... Perhaps Your recording at an old standard & passing it to a modern TV or HD TV with the digital output from 1080 HD to 720 or lower still.
    OR
    Get a Digital Hard Drive recorder.....

    The modern way to Record video is to use a Hard Disk Drive Recorder rather than a VCR. They have a built in tuner and can record 2 stations at once and have a built in Electronic Program Guide. The EPG info is transmitted with the Digital TV transmission from the broadcaster.
    I bought one 2 weeks ago for an old 85yo friend so he could record late night stuff and play back later. He still uses the VCR but only for old VHS Tape playback. It was a TEAC HDR9650TS Digital Video Recorder and I picked it up new for Aus$188.
    Here are the unit features
    Main Features:
    DVB-T Twin Digital Turners
    DVR Recording: Record three channels while watching a 4th from same network Smart Series Record feature to record a whole series at a touch of a button
    2.5" Sata Hard disk: 500GB
    Time Shift Function (Pause live TV)
    HDMI Digital Output
    Digital Audio Output
    CVBS/YPbPr/SPDIF connectors
    Supports TV formats 4:3 and 16:9
    Electronic Program Guide (EPG) up to 7 days in advance
    EPG searching and auto download
    Recorded program edit
    Parental Control
    Copy files from internal HDD to external HDD
    Built-in WiFi
    Network Playback
    USB 2.0 Interface

    I have just installed a SATA Tanberg RDX Quikckstore drive in a Fujitsu Siemens Primergy Econel S2 Server and now it just hangs on the Windows Server 2003 SBS screen with the progress bar cycing. There...


    I'm finding a similar problem with an Imation (Freecom badged) RDX drive. On a SBS 2011 server, it just doesn't put in an appearance, not even showing in the BIOS. On a Win7 PC, it appears but hangs the PC.

    The best solution so far for me is to connect a Sata->USB interface and plug the RDX sata cable into it, then plug in to a USB port. It then works.

    I'm guessing there is a firmware problem with the drive, and I'm looking into that possibility.

    Hope that helps.

    I have 3in1 USB 2.0 to IDE & SATA Cable but nothing to show me how to use this kit


    SATA 3.5" 2.5" IDE 3 IN 1 TO USB 2.0 CABLE ADAPTOR KIT

    1 external connection kit
    1 internal connection kit

    The internal connect kit consists of 1 red USB connector cable
    and 1 internal white male molex connector to SATA female power connector
    ( 1 yellow wire , 2 black wires , 1 red wire )

    the external connect kit
    consists of a 3 pin power adaptor (with a tiny plug to save space) feeding a power supply which powers either IDE thru a Molex connector or SATA through a supplied adaptor. Supplied also are data connectors to link the IDE or SATA hard drive with a USB port. Use this adaptor set to retrieve data from a hard drive when it is not mounted in a computer.
