I have just bought a My Passport Essential 320GB as a media store to play through a Sony Bravia KDL40EX 403 tv, but when I connect up the hard drive to the tv through the USB port it doesn't register it?
Any ideas? I have used a USB pen drive with it before and had no problems...is this a WD compatibility issue?
Any help would be much appreciated!

Most of the TV's only support fat32 as a valid file system, the new passport are NTFS formatted. You need to reformat the drive in your computer disk management, this should solve the issue.

You might need to use a third party utility to format the drive to FAT32, research in google for fat 32 formatter here.
