Hitachi Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

You should be able to buy an external USB drive (or thumb drive) at any electronics store.
You can connect a USB hard disk drive or USB
memory stick to your TV by using the USB inputs of
the TV. This feature allows you to play files stored in
a USB drive. 2.5" and 3.5" inch (hdd with external
power supply) external hard disk drives are supported.
IMPORTANT! You should back up your files before
making any connections to the TV set in order to
avoid any possible data loss. Manufacturer will not
be responsible for any file damage or data loss. It is
possible that certain types of USB devices (e.g. MP3
Players) or USB hard disk drives/memory sticks may
not be compatible with this TV.
Quickly plugging and unplugging USB devices, is a
very hazardous operation. Do not repeatedly quickly
plug and unplug the drive. This may cause physical
damage to the USB player and USB device itself. Do
not pull out USB module while playing a file.
Media Browser Menu
You can play photo, music, and movie files stored
on a USB disk by connecting it to your TV and using
the Media Browser screen. To do this, perform the
following: Connect a USB disk to one of the USB
inputs located on the side of the TV.
You can connect two USB devices to your TV. If both
USB devices include music, picture or video files, USB
selection OSD will be displayed on the screen. The
first USB device connected to the TV will be named
as USB Drive1. Select a device by using up or down arrows
and press OK

but yes, I am the MVP of external HDD< I build my own.
Have over 5 here for Backups .
lots of causes, for sure bad drive, or missing drivers..
bad HW hardware or BAD software SW.
Missing 12vdc 2amp power pack>, lost or using wrong one.
when pack above does the HDD spin? usb connected to PC.
NO PC stated, NO OS stated, windows/chrome/Linux/android?
its at lease 10 years old , see posts back that far.
not good old HDD,this old.
sold during W7 era. 2009.
The drive has 3.5" HDD that needs lots of power (Amps)
to start up that big motor inside, and is first thing to learn .
2amps it needs, ok? so if pack is missing it will never startup
on any USB port, not rated for 20x standard USB load factors.
some laptops only do 0.1amps (100mA) and are useless to startup any hdd motor of any kind.
see why here.
and see a better extremal solution cheap.! $10

Check the supported movie files that can be played on that tv then look at the file and see what type of file it is. I recommend using MP4, WMA or AVI files

Your motherboard MUST have a SATA 3.0 port. It is usually blue or look closely on the motherboard to see where the 3.0 port is located. If your motherboard doesn't have a 3.0 port your hard drive won't be any faster than a normal hard drive.
