Is there way to watch movies on my LCD via USB with my new WD My Passport?

Just got a My Passport  1.5TB Hard Drive version WDBY8L0015BBK-NESN. I know its formatted in NTFS. I connected to my TV via USB, put my TV on the media channel but nothing appeared. I waited about 2 minutes and unplugged. Saw an option to reformat in exfat but read somewhere it wont work. Does anyone have a solution to this ? Thanks in advance ?

Try posting tin the TV section you’ll probably get help faster.


Verify with the TV manual what format does the drive needs to have to work on your TV

most likely FAT32

If that’s the case use a tool like Swiss Knife

also verify if the TV supports the drive capacity
