You may need to recode the video files on your main computer into a recognised format. This is mainly due to the CPU on the media processor being fairly slow.

Lg smart TV, will not display files on hard drive connected by USB. It recognises the device tho?


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)

Lifestudio isn't installed on my pc anymore and when i plug in the external hdd a light comes on but nothing happens


1. From what I read it may be the port drivers that are not installing for the USB port you have connected you hard drive to.
2. Check the manufacturers site for driver updates and hard drive requirements
3. It may be that the driver are not for the OS that you have or you may have to download them.
4. Try another cable ( USB)
5. Last it may be the internal electronics of the drive itself that may not be writing or reading the information sent by the pc to the port .
You may need a new case with new electronics ( hard drive main board).

My passport 320GB hard drive is giving me an I/O error every time I plug it into my computer. Copying files from it is either extremely slow (for documents) or not happening at all (videos). I am currently...


1. This could be a "Power related problem".
While you transfer data from with your HDD, make sure your your netbook is connected with an external power supply (Charger/Adapter.).

If it doesnt solve your pproblem, try updating your USB Drivers/ Chipset drivers. (All the Ex-HDD have Hi-Speed USB 2.0 port, may be your MoBo doenst have the relevant drivers to support your HDD.)

If this doesnt solve your problem, try contacting the HDD Manufacturer Support or replace it after recovering your files.


Thanks.

Buffalo 500gb external hard drive not working on dvd player


Many DVD players cannot play just any video files. You can look online at the website for your DVD manufacturer and see if there is a codec pack for your DVD player. If you install a codec pack on your DVD player then you should be able to watch more video formats. Look for one that can do avi, mpeg, mp4, etc files
please rate my solution!

Install screen and drive won't boot up anymore


Hi Doug,

The problem is that mac has a diffrent 0perating system to a pc the thing you doing by switching from mac to pc the external hard drive is conflicting with one another to make your external driver to work on your pc follow these steps. go into control panal,system,hardware,device manager,universal serial bus controllers,drivers then update drivers that should reconise your mass storage driver.
