Question about LG Televison & Video

Open Question

I just got a WD 3TB hard drive and put my films on it, but the tv (LG 50PK760) wont use the hard drive. The message it gives is "Problem on the USB device - Please check USB".The tv works fine with other WD 2TB hard drives that I have. The new 3TB is USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 compatible, but just wont open! Help!

SOURCE: DVD player is not able to detect WD 320 GB hard drive

Try reformating the drive with FAT32 file system (this is the default facotry mode).

SOURCE: Lacie Big Disk Quadra 3TB won't work with xp-32bit

One way around is to install Mac Drive on your system. First you format your hdd in HFS+ on a mac platform, with any size you want.Then, after you installed Mac drive on your PC, it will work.

SOURCE: FERGUSON F20250DTR I have had this

\'hard-drive initialisation failed\' = the hard disk has died. Since also the sound is gone that means you had a catastrophic failure in the box. It is still fixable, but it will be very expensive to do it. Time to return it or have it serviced under warranty. If both options are out then just junk it .

Windows will not start with a Toshiba external hard drive plugged into USB


Computer starts normally in windows with a windows that is installed on a hard disk on that copmuter. In other words - windows is installed on an internal hard disk of a computer A. If you get it out and put in a computer B it wont work.

To have the things work:
1. First should set in BIOS boot up options first boot device CD/DVD, second OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, third HDD
2. Should boot up from a CD and install windows on an external hard disk (in your case your 3TB Toshiba external HD)
3. Set in BIOS boot up options first boot device OTHER/USB/EXTERNAL, second internal hard disk e.g. HDD0, HDD1

Will the toshiba canvio desktop 3tb hard drive work with the LG 47LM6700 tv?


Depends on the format your hard drives in (personally I'd just use a PC with an HDMI cable) and whether your TV supports USB file reading.

Windows XP does not have support for any disk-drive larger than 2TB. So, your 3TB disk-drive will not work. Upgrade your computer, or buy a 2TB disk-drive.

Try the WD USB hard drive in another computer. If you can access your data on another computer then backup your data.
If the WD USB hard drive is faulty then -
It is not possible to recover data from faulty hard drivesby mortals such as you and I.
There are companies that can recover data from faulty and damaged hard drivesBUT they wll charge an arm and a leg for their services.

There are several free data recovery softwares that can get data off of drives that Windows explorer won't touch. Check out: http://www.runtime.org/data-recovery-software.htm If you don't mind voiding the warranty, you CAN take it out of the enclosure and try connecting it to another computer, but I really think the encryption is going to prevent this.
The only other option would be to send the drive off to a data recovery specialist which is usually extremely effective, but can be very costly (starting around $400).
