Hello and thank you for choosing JUSTANSWER.com

.

Yeah unfortunately it will NOT work when you connect it to your Television.

The file system is UNrecognized by the TV.

The TV is only going to recognize FLASH drives, not spindle hard drives.

.

You would think it wouldnt matter.....but.....as you can see...it does.

.

This is an unfortunate side effect of this additional port on TV's these days.

.

Here is a work around.....get and use a Media Player. Essentially it becomes a Media server......but its a dedicated device that only costs about $50.

.

I use one called Free Agent. http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/321982651603?ul_noapp=true&chn=ps&lpid=82

Works Awesome, and you can connect almost ANY hard drive via USB.
