I have a Lacy 160G laptop external HDD attached to it..It works fine... The format of the HDD should also be FAT32. The structure of the files should be Album/MP3
For a HDD that big look for software on the internet which can convert it from NTSF to FAT32 it should work perfectly.
The only thing I haven't been able to get working is videofiles...on the same HDD. Anyone got an idea?

First, this is actually a good thing in a way. The reason is, it is actually telling you right up front that your USB bus is underpowered for this device. That's a huge improvement over issues caused by underpowered USB buses in the previous model computers. In those, we were left to having to figure out what the problem was when a USB device inexplicably stopped or didn't work.
What is happening is, your new external hard disk drive (HDD) is trying to run off of power taken from your laptop's USB "bus" (circuitry). This is OK for devices needing low power. But in the case of external hard disks, it's "iffy" whether there'll be enough power on the USB bus to support them. Particularly on laptop computers.
You need only attach an A/C adapter to your external hard disk drive (HDD) and you should be OK. If that is not an option, connect a **powered** USB hub to your laptop and plug the external HDD to the hub instead.
By "powered" I mean a USB hub that comes w/ an A/C adapter. In either case, using a powered USB hub or attaching an A/C adapter to your hard disk drive will remove the external hard disk's power load from your laptop's USB bus and provide sufficient power for the HDD to run.
You can find USB hubs at Newegg.com and lots of other online high tech stores. I like Newegg because their prices are competitive, their customer service is excellent and there're customer reviews of most of their products there as well.
If you have any more questions, comments, observations - anything at all, just let us know. We're here to help.

SOURCE: export via USB to hard drive
The USB ports on this unit are non-functional unless you hack it. There are several methods of doing so, but the easiest is probably to purchase an upgrade kit from dvrupgrade.com. You can either purchase a replacement hard drive, or software to do it yourself.
After you do this, the USB ports can be used to connect a network device, and you can use different software programs to export and import programming. You will also have other features you normally wouldn't have on the stock unit. Good resources on this topic are tivocommunity.com and dealdatabase.com.

SOURCE: USB PORT FOR ZEBRA Z4M
It will not work with any drivers if you do not have a parallel port. You can get a pci card that has parallel port on it for use with the zebra z4m.
below is a link for the card that cost only $9.99
