The HDD on this set is a SATA drive. It connects directly to the main board on the set. You can take the drive out of the set and format it on your PC, if it formats then replace the main board. If it will not format replace with a SATA drive of similar size.

I am using LG 42LA6200, how can I record TV program with my external harddisk (Buffalo 3.5 mini station 500GB), LG TV can read the HD but cannot use it which has been formatted as FAT32?

You can record from its audio-video out, to connecting it to the audio-video in of any recording instrument through a AV cable connected in between. For more details, refer its user manual.

I have LG 32LC2RR LCD and a lot of problems with it: 1) When start to work, there are no sound but verry bad, loud, terrible sound(khhhrrrckkrkrrrkk) 2) I can not formate HDD! LCD can't record!...

hello and I got the same problem and solve it as I put a small hard drive HITACHI 40 GB. then your TV formats it alone. I put the disc in its original computer and deleted a partition, then created a new fat32 partition and format the drive with partition Magic.
. after being assured that no disk errors and put the second disc on my computer. I used norton ghost and clone HITACHI seagate disc on the disc. never mind one that is less than the other. importantly, the small disc was recorded right information and transfer it to large.

the whole thing was a big obstacle. after its original disk formatted TV stopped initialize it strange is because of the Hitachi drive was installed Linux and TV recognized it without problems and I formatted it alone. may have been lucky not know

After I reformat my LG HDD video recorder to give me more space, it only clears a tiny portion. How do I clear the whole recorder? I am going to HDD format, and reformatting. Thanks


Do you mean it always shows 10Gb less space than the capacity of the drive. ie only shows 150Gb but you have a 160Gb drive? The reason for this is that it has 10Gb reserved for the buffer of the pause/rewind live TV.
