I have WD external model number WD1600U017-005, it was working fine and I could use it with my TV (Samsung LED series 8) through the USB port and it would recognise it and I can watch movies etc.
However I had a problem with the external and I had to reformat but since that reformat I have been unable to get it working on the TV again, when I plug it in the WD device makes a clog clog noise and the tv does not recognise that there is a device plugged in. I have downloaded the format programme from the WD site using the WD model number to make sure its in the original FAT32 format but still no luck.
Any help would be appreciated.

When you formatted did you delete the old partition/volume first? That causes problems if you forget to delete. Here is a little guide

Reformat the unit in Fat 32, you can use any third party application to complete the task.
