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.

Have an error message on screen sayng NO HDD???


The system does give this message when the logic board can't access the Hard Disk.
Can be anything, from a complete over filled HD till a defect controller or just a corrupted first sector. Check what the user manual says about initialise the hard disk. If that won't help, consult a tech close to you. Btw. after an initialise or format you will have lost everything you recorded till now. So if something important is on the disk, ask a tech to get out the drive and recover the important stuff. This could cost you.

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.


in
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


Hi,

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.

Cheers,

Keith

LG RH265 - Problem when trying to register blank disk/dubbing


The DVD needs to initialise the disk first. Come out of the HDD dubbing menu and press DVD on the remote. The blank recordable disk should be recognised and you should see Initialise disk? on the screen. Press Start and hey presto, you can now dub from the HDD Movie dubbing menu (as per the manual instructions).
