Question about Computers & Internet
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

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.

It is quite easy, do not worry.
You only need to bought and USB enclosure, here is a link to many products on ebay
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.
