I get asked this question a lot. The reason why it's not in the Manual is because it's not an option. The way the data is recorded and stored to the drive is by using special file systems that is not usable on any other device except for the Freesat Recorder due to copyright laws. Hope this helps and please remember to indicate that I have helped you today.
So if it not possible? why does it say you can store photos to it,it even has a tab for your photo`s? and if they are mine I do not need copyright?
What exactly says that you can store photo's to it? The Freesat Box or the External Hard Drive?
Page 11. 4. Manual for the Foxsat -HDR connecting external devices: the connected device will appear : and it does and says they are the wrong file format?
11.4 photo : with the media list on the screen press BLUE button to select PHOTO a list of the jpeg photos will appear??
If file transfer is not allowed then why does it have external device connections??
What all do you have on that Device? Some of them may say that, but the .jpg's should work fine.
It`s 1.5 terrabyte portable hard drive: to enable me to back up and store documents/photo`s and free up space on the computer.
When this device is connected it just says they are wrong format, so what is the right format? and if it will not accept the external drive how am I supposed to download them.
On page 11. 3 Media list is says: you can delete files or copy files to/from external devices??? which you said was not possible???
The easiest way to correct this is to get a cheap 8GB USB Flash Drive and use it solely for just this purpose. The Computer's Backed up files are flagging the device as non compatible. Give it a shot and let me know how it goes.
