Question about LG 42PX5D 42 in. Plasma HDTV
I have a LG plasma 50 inch with a 80 Gb build in Harddisk. It's possible to connect a external USB harddisk . I bought one on Westrn Digital ( 500 Gb , Fat32 ) . My problem : When I connect th USB hardisk original to my PC ( XP Pro ) , no problem , everyhing works. When I connect original to my LG Plasma, it reconized the USB connection , but I need to format the USB harddisk with the USB-format option ( menu of TV ). Than , I can copy films and everything to that harddisk . But when I want to reconnect it to my pc , he shows the harddiks in My Computer , but when I get access , get an errot and ask me to format the drive. the only option is NFTS. What can i do , I installed ext2FSD ( linux based file manager , ext2,ext3 ) but no solution
LG have created a solution that only allows you to backup to a hard disk in the format that they have created.
The hard disk can not then be read by a computer as they only recognize formats such as NTFS, FAT or FAT32: not LG´s format!!!
If you reformat the disk in FAT32 format then you can copy files to the hard disk and see your photos, or certain types of DIVX files and listen to music via your TV,......BUT...you can not save TV programs from the TV to the same hard disk UNLESS you allow the TV to reformat the hard disk to LG´s format ) in which case you will lose all the files you previously had on the hard disk.
In practice LG have created a backup solution that is of little use to most users particularly bearing in mind that the backup takes almost as long as the original programs and as long again to restore.
Most of LG´s products are very clever and have a tendency to be in advance of the market.
However on this occasion LG almost had a good idea but many users are going to feel tricked like I did,
