Your TV is very unlikely to be able to read the external drive. The USB connection on most TVs are meant to view pictures and lack the ability to navigate file systems and read most file formats. Your best bet is hook the hard drive up to a computer or a video game system (PS3 and Xbox360 do this) and then hook that computer or game system to the TV.

My computer will not provide access to the toshiba external hard drive


1)Check that the drive is receiving enough power to spin up. The USB port might not provide enough power, in which case a powered hub or other external power supply might be the solution.

2)Check the cable. A bad connection anywhere in the chain can block current flow, both for power and for data transfer.

3)If you can open the enclosure without damaging it, check that all internal connections are good.

I have a Sony VAIO GRZ610, old i know. Won't power up,


If you cannot get the laptop working then try this method.
Remove the hard drive and connect it to an USB hard drive adapter and then plug this adapter into a working computer's USB port. If this computer sees this as an USB mass storage device (external hard drive) and you can open the various folders and files, then you can backup and or transfer your data to another computer. If yiu install the hard drive in an USB hard drive case then you can use this hard drive as an external USB hard drive.

My computer stopped reading my external hard drive


Try the drive in a different USB port. If it still fails try another computer. If it still fails then it's possible the drive is bad. If the warranty has expired you may be able to find a tech savvy friend to remove the actual drive from the case and hook it up to another computer directly. If it recognizes fine then the case is bad. If it does not recognize the drive then the drive is dead.

You won't be able to retrieve the files on the drive unfortunately unless you use an extremely expensive service. These tend to run in the hundreds of dollars.

I recently purchased an external hard drive, and how do connect it to my computer.


External Hard Drive is mostly of the USB interfacing type. If urs one is the same, then it is just as simple as plugging in a pen drive in the USB port. If it has external power supplies then u can easily figure out how to connect. There are two parts in the power supply (if external power supply cable is provided), 3-pin main power supply connector and other is the adapter which goes to the external hard drive.plug in the other end of the adapter into the hard drive (there is a hole in it). connect the main power cable to the adapter extension. now for the usb Hard Drive, connect the USB cable to the USB port of the computer. Switch on the power supply to the Hard drive and u r ready to use ur brand new External Hard Drive. If it is a Firewire interfacing one then u may need to open the CPU box, and then connect the firewire connector on to the motherboard firewire port. It is easy to identify, it is a red colored port/connector.

Is my hard broken before i have got a chance to even use it?


However rare, it is possible that you have a dead hard drive. I would try the hard drive on a different computer (one that has a known good set of USB ports). If that still does not work, take it back to where you got it and get a refund/replacement.

A couple of things you can look at:

1) Do you hear/feel the hard drive "spin-up" when you first turn it on ?

2) Does the hard drive come with an external power supply ? If so, it could be just the power supply that is shot. Check for tell-tale LEDs that would say whether it's working or not.

3) Have you tried different USB cables/USB ports ? Sometimes the front ports do not have enough juice to power a hard drive (if it's drawing power off the USB port). Sometimes switching to a USB port on the back of your computer is enough to solve the problem.

4) Make sure to eliminate as many superfluous components you can from your testing: don't plug the hard into a USB hub, plug it directly into an motherboard USB port (as mentioned above, the ones on the back).


Hope this helps.
