Hey there,

We could use some more info on the hard drive, but I can tell you right of the bat that, exFAT is not a very reliable file system, what OS are you using? Bare in mind that exFAT has shown some compatibility issues with several OS…

I would recommend switching to NTFS and try again.


Try posting in the TV section. It might be the format or the drive size. You’ll find more help there.
