I have a Western Digital 1.5TB HDD that is FAT32 formatted. I originally used this on a PC and now Mac (still go between the two) if I have to. I connected this external hard drive to my LG Smart TV LB7500 (Australian model) via the USB port. Initially, this worked fine, however, when I later went to add more movies onto it (and proceeded to connect it), the TV wouldn’t recognize it.
I have read the user guide and feel I have stuck to the conditions for this to work, bar one thing!
When I removed the HDD from the TV and went to connect it to a windows laptop, I needed a driver apparently to access the HDD. So I did so in order to access the hard drive. It was after this point that the hard drive ceased to be recognized by the TV. So I am assuming it was something to do with the driver installation.
I am not sure how to reverse the installation…or find a way to make the HDD connect to the TV again (without reformatting, setting up a network etc…)
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
