My new passport 1TB isn't being recognised when connected to my Samsung smart tv. I've ensured that it's formatted in FAT 32 and it works fine when connected to both a PC and Mac but isn't detected when connected to my tv.
Can anyone offer any advice?

I believe this would be a power issue. The passport is not getting enough power to spin up so it is not detected. How many ports does the samsung tv have? If it has 2 ports try buying a power booster cable.

Thanks for the prompt reply. It does indeed have 2 USB connections. It's a Samsung UE40D6100 series. Can you advise what type of power booster cable? I've never heard of those.

It's a Y shaped cable so the 2 USB ports on TV provide power to the drive.
